5 Reasons to Choose WordPress for Your Next Website

Released as a fork of the ‘b2/cafelog’ software, WordPress was first unleashed on the world on May 27, 2003.

Easier debugging With Swift developers will be able to see live changes when making adjustments in their code.

More revenue If you want to make money from your app, chances are you will be more successful releasing it on iOS, then when when you release it on Android.
