Weebly, a global service that lets anyone create a high-quality site, is expanding to the iPad with the industry’s first, start-to-finish website creation app, Weebly for iPad. Expansion to the tablet comes as today, over 25 million sites have been created with Weebly, with over 200 million unique visitors to these sites on a monthly basis. Weebly for iPad was built on the recently released iOS 8 to give entrepreneurs a complete website creation and editing experience re-imagined for the tablet.
“Mobile is playing an increasingly important role in everyones’ lives. We’re constantly looking for ways to evolve Weebly, broaden accessibility and help our customers succeed”
Today, one in three mobile visits to Weebly.com is from an iPad and people have come to expect the flexibility and convenience of creating and editing their website from various devices. Weebly for iPad features a highly intuitive drag & drop site builder, effortless editing across multiple devices and easy photo and video uploads. Unlike any other website creation experience available today, Weebly’s app has the ability to let people design a new site from scratch – from start to finish – or manage and edit an existing site, dramatically increasing the flexibility of Weebly’s services.
“Mobile is playing an increasingly important role in everyones’ lives. We’re constantly looking for ways to evolve Weebly, broaden accessibility and help our customers succeed,” said David Rusenko, CEO and co-founder of Weebly. “Tablet creation and editing capabilities have been one of the top requests from our users and iOS 8 provided us with a platform to deliver. Designing with your fingers on the touchscreen feels super intuitive and we see huge potential for tablets to empower more people to start something and create freely.”
New Features of Weebly iPad App include:
- Powerful Site Creation and Editing: Weebly for iPad offers a complete creation and editing experience, giving everyone the freedom to design a high-quality site and bring their ideas to life. Users begin by selecting from dozens of unique themes, customizing the design, and adding ready-made building blocks such as text, images, buttons, contact forms, maps, and videos. They then publish their finished product to the web and it’s available to the world and ready for visitors.
- Intuitive Design at Your Fingertips: A highly intuitive drag & drop site building experience re-imagined for the iPad touchscreen makes it surprisingly easy to create and edit your site. The editor toolbar naturally expands and contracts to maximize screen display as you work and the app resizes automatically to accommodate both full-size and iPad minis.
- Effortless Editing Across Devices: Now every site created with Weebly can be edited from the iPad or the desktop at any time. All changes are saved and synced automatically.
- Easy Photo & Video Integration: Makes it simple to quickly browse and select images or videos directly from an iPad library or to take them right from the app and add them to a site.
