I have WebStorm and now I wanna do Apple Swift. Should I buy IntelliJ IDEA?

I currently use WebStorm for web development and even for plain text editing. I like doing all of my text editing in one place, whether it's code or not.

Now I want to start developing in Apple Swift. Should I buy AppCode or IntelliJ IDEA? If I buy IntelliJ IDEA, will it work like WebStorm when it's setup for a web development project and work like AppCode when it's setup for iOS development? That'd be great.

Or do I have to buy AppCode?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

you can try out Intellij free and see for yourself if it is adequate.

Thanks for your reply, Roedy.

There was a blog post on JetBrains.com recetly that said that AppCode now has basic support for Swift: http://blog.jetbrains.com/objc/2014/06/appcode-3-0-1-update-xcode-6-and-basic-swift-support/

IntelliJ IDEA is very foreign to me, so could you please just tell me if the same basic support that AppCode has for Swift is available in IntelliJ IDEA?

AppCode (which supports Swift and Objective-C) is not part of the Intellij IDEA Ultimate.  AC is the only separate IDE out of the lot:
