In-App Purchases have become a very important part of our business. Adding them to an app can involve quite a bit of boilerplate code though. Today we'll look at SwiftyStoreKit, a framework from Andrea Bizzotto that can help.

SwiftyStoreKit provides a few static functions we can use to easily implement all the common In-App Purchase tasks like getting the info about our "products" from Apple, purchasing, restoring, and even receipt verification. Let's take a look:

SwiftyStoreKit.retrieveProductInfo("com.littlebitesofcocoa.products.volume1") { result in
  switch result {
    case .Success(let product):
      let priceString = NSNumberFormatter.localizedStringFromNumber(product.price, numberStyle: .CurrencyStyle)
      print("Product: \(product.localizedDescription), Price: \(priceString)")

    case .Error(let error): print("Error: \(error)")

We pass in the product identifier, and supply a closure that can process the result. If successful, we use NSNumberFormatter (Bite #182) to print a nice looking summary of the product.

From here, we just need to wire up the other functions SwiftyStoreKit provides like purchaseProduct, restorePurchases, and verifyReceipt.
