Weebly (http://www.weebly.com), a leading website creation platform powering over 2% of the web, launches its first iPhone app which is now available through iTunes and this link: http://www.weebly.com/weebly/mobile/landing.php. The app allows Weeblys existing 11 million users and anyone with the desire to create a new blog or website, to sign up for free, create a website, and post to a blog, all from their iPhone -- no PC required.
Weeblys new mobile app compliments the web app experience that Weebly already offers, giving users 24/7 access to moderate and respond to blog comments, manage leads from their sites contact forms, and view website traffic trends, all from the palm of their hands.
Drag & Drop blogging lets users easily add and reorder text, photos, and video in their posts, enabling quick content creation with one-click auto-posting to Facebook & Twitter. Complete with rich text editing, the mobile posting experience is unmatched by any other blogging platform. See the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czGOFgR79yQ&hd=1.
Nearly 10% of the United States population visits a Weebly-built website each month, making it a powerful tool for bloggers, web site creators, and small businesses owners alike. The speed and efficiency at which Weeblys iPhone app allows site creators to attend to their websites ensures bloggers can respond to their audiences immediately, and that small business owners never miss a customer lead coming in through their site.
We believe it is critical to give our users a mobile compliment to the web experience, as bloggers, website creators, and small business owners increasingly need to communicate with their audiences on the fly, said David Rusenko, co-founder and CEO of Weebly. Our goal with the iPhone app was to make it easy and simple for anyone to create and update their site or blog entirely from their phone, particularly as mobile devices become more intrinsic to our everyday lives. Most of us want to share photos and videos the moment they are captured -- or respond to customers and clients immediately -- and Weeblys iPhone apps simple drag and drop features make the process a breeze.
The Weebly iPhone app not only enhances customer engagement, it also supplements audience connection and business productivity for todays post-PC world. As businesses and individuals continue to move online and develop blogs, Weebly expects their new app to appeal to a wide audience.
Some App highlights include:
- Free sign up and website creation entirely from the phone no PC required
- Drag-and-drop blogging allows users to quickly add and reorder text, video, and photos in posts
- View website statistics from your phone (pageviews/uniques, referring sites, top search terms)
- Check and respond to form submissions via phone (ie. RSVP , lead, and contact forms)
