Developer file created by Apple Xcode, an IDE used for creating iOS and OS X apps; saves an interactive work area so that programmers can write and test code in real-time while they develop; contains source code written in Apple's Swift programming language, which was released with iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite.

If you'd like to manually browse the contents of a PLAYGROUND file, right-click it and select Show Package Contents from the drop down menu.
