Xcode.
Just started with it and it is so confusing.

I didn't do any serious coding in Swift & iOS development, but I've played a little and AppCode worked fine for me. Consider trying it, though I recommend to have XCode opened, because some features are not implemented in AppCode (e.g. visual editing of storyboards, though trying to open it in AppCode actually opens XCode)

Agreed 100%. Apple development is not a calming experience.

Completely agree. I've been using xcode for some time now and I constantly lose motivation because it is an abhorrent dev tool. I recently tried Xamarin.iOS just so I can keep using Visual Studio and it's been a much better experience.
