inWeby – your website builder
iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
When I’m not here at the iPhone App Review creating stunningly crafted and incredibly well-written app reviews (You’re welcome, world!) my primary occupation is as a web developer and designer. This means I happen to be in tune with all of the latest standards, trends, tools, etc. What does that mean for you?
It means my review today of inWeby, from Innovative Systems, LLC, the all-in-one website editor for the iPad is bound to be chock-full of incredibly insightful tit-bits. With that in mind, if you’re looking for a web construction tool to beat them all, you need only to slide on down below the break to read our whole review. Starting with:
Concept and Functionality
Have you ever thought about creating your very own website? If so, you’re likely aware of the fact that a whole lot of additional effort goes into such a thing: There’s the coding, the designing, and the maintenance thereafter.
But what if you could shirk all of that and instead just use an iPad app to get the job done?
Essentially, that’s what inWeby wants to offer you. The app is a What You See is What You Get editor. All that means is that you can drag, drop, add, and remove items. And whatever you see on the screen is exactly what you will get when you publish your site.
It’s like a word processor for your site construction, and if you’re adverse to coding, it’s the best way to go.
inWeby makes the job easier by splitting up its sections into popular portions like a blog, menu editing, etc. There’s even an actual eCommerce area, which means you can setup your own online store within the title.
That’s a lot of power for such a small, easy-to-use application, and we appreciate that a lot.
Design and Interface
The app also happens to look pretty good, as well. We enjoyed the easy-breezy navigational controls, and we can attest that you really don’t need any coding knowledge to successfully manage the app. That being said, you’re not here to listen to that stuff. Here’s what a professional thinks:
The app is simple, which is good for the basic user. However, if you want to do anything more complex with your site (Create extremely detailed inventories, mess with A/B testing, add analytical tools, etc) you will swiftly be out of luck.
That’s the nature of the game, and though we love how simple the app is, keep in mind your future goals, as scalability is of the utmost concern.
Another saving grace for inWeby happens to be its price, however: For only $4.99 you’ll get hosting, a domain name, and the app’s abilities as well.
That’s a phenomenal value, but remember not to sell yourself short here for short-term gains if you intend to have an Internet presence for years to come. That being said, inWeby is still an easy recommendation for those with a need. You can also visit their website here.
inWeby requires iOS 5.1 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
