Weebly for iPad Goes Live

By Kaya Ismail October 9, 2014 News & Headlines

Weebly, the world-famous website builder, has just made their iPad users' lives a whole lot easier.

Powering millions of websites worldwide, Weebly has built its reputation by enabling users to build good-looking websites via a drag-and-drop system, for free. 

Weebly for iPad was the Weebly community's, "second most requested feature", and it's not diffcult to see why. Weebly's interface is ideal for touchscreens. This also means that Weebly is the first website builder to be completely functional on an iPad. Let's look at what it can do.

Weebly for iPad

According to the Weebly announcement:

"[We have brought] the drag and drop experience to life in a way you’ve never seen before with the ability to both create and edit a website on the iPad. It’s been a huge technical challenge to make every site ever created with Weebly editable on iPad."

That's right. If you have a Weebly website, you can now edit it on an iPad, just as you can on a desktop, for free. 

Here's a video demonstrating what Weebly for iPad is capable of.

Below are some of the Weebly for iPad features:

  • New interface and design language built specifically for touchscreen. Site Selector, Element Sidebar and Image Editing flows completely overhauled for tablet experience.
  • Any website created with Weebly is editable from the iPad (stores and blogs coming soon!)
  • Element Sidebar naturally collapses and expands while you work or with a swipe, maximizing screen real estate.
  • Powerful new editing capabilities optimized for the iPad, you can now edit images and customize font color with intuitive touchscreen motions. 
  • Save and sync work across devices so you can pick up where you left off on desktop or mobile. 
  • Offline mode captures updates made without an internet connection. Work anywhere!
  • Manage your website’s SEO right from your iPad
  • One of the first apps built uniquely for iOS 8, leverages the new operating system to create an experience unlike anything you’ve seen before on the iPad. 

On top of these features, Weebly have announced that they will also release these functions, in due time:

  • Create and edit blogs and stores
  • Analytics and stats
  • Android tablet app
