"But, AsyncImage"

It's great that Apple now has official support for async images, however:

Unlike AsyncImage, SwURLImage:

  • Is supported from iOS 13
  • Supports caching (in memory, on disk, and custom)
  • Supports progress indicators (including download fraction) and custom transitions
  • Has in depth, customisable logging
