Whether you’re a casual blogger who likes to post a few times a month or someone who has made blogging a part of their daily routine, it’s best to find a platform that works well for you. While there certainly are plenty of choices available, few of them allow you to do it all from your iPhone.
LolipoTouch+ is an amazing app that lets users build a site or blog from the ground up using just an iPhone, and there aren’t any catches or caveats.
Developed by GMO Pepabo, Inc., this fantastic site builder app is great for users who want a site of their own but don’t want to get involved with major blog platforms like WordPress, LiveJournal, etc.
Concept and Functionality:
Personally I had reservations about the promises made the developers. As someone who has built numerous sites and blogs over the years, I know how much work goes into setting up a site. To be able to do so from a smartphone seemed like a crazy idea, but LolipoTouch+ proved me wrong.
Once you set up an account with the service, you’re able to begin creating your site or blog with LolipoTouch+. One of the first things I recommend doing is heading to the app settings page and changing your username so that it matches what you like, as it’s automatically generated using your email address.
Once that’s set up, you can customize your blog using various themes, as well as add your own cover photo.
I was pleased to see that LolipoTouch+ includes tutorials for new users who are just getting started, and they’re definitely helpful. It’s not terribly hard to find your way around the app, and I was surprised at the fact that navigation is very clean and simple.
Your LolipoTouch+ site can function as a blog or static site depending on the content you add to it. Users can easily create new articles with the tap of a finger, and these articles can contain text, photos, and links. You can even directly embed tweets and YouTube videos, which is pretty neat.
One thing I really like is that you can easily add each element to the article and design it the way you want.
As you can probably imagine, LolipoTouch+ includes plenty of features for users to make a site their own. From themes to custom headers, it’s easy to create the look and layout you want. Users who want people to be able to contact and locate them (store website, for example) can even add a contact form and Google Maps page to their site with no extra effort needed.
Another awesome LolipoTouch+ feature is the ability to use your own domain name with the service. Unlike many other free blogs and site hosts, you don’t have to pay a fee to make this change.
Lastly, sites created with LolipoTouch+ look fantastic across all platforms, from mobile devices to desktop browsers. Everything is optimized incredibly well, and information that’s posted on the site is formatted perfectly.
LolipoTouch+ is available to download from the App Store for free, which is unbelievable given how much the app lets you do. There are no in-app purchases to worry about, nor do you have to pay fees or deal with advertisements.
Overall, LolipoTouch+ is a must-have iPhone app for anyone who wants to build and manage their website or blog right on their iPhone.
LolipoTouch+ requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this article.
