Simpl: Optimised
for iOS 8

Simpl & iOS 8

We are pleased to announce that Simpl is now optimised for iOS 8. This update fixes a number of bugs resulting from the release of Apple's latest software. It took our incredible developers just 16 days to turn this around after iOS 8 shipped.

As usual, it's a free update on the App Store.

Simpl: Now on iPhone

Simpl, now on iPhone

Since our last update we have been developing our iPhone app and are proud to announce its launch to you. Now you can build and manage your website with just your phone.

“...build and manage your website

The new iPhone app has exactly the same features as the iPad app. It also works in sync with the iPad app, so you can start on one device and finish on another.

App Localisation In French, German & Spanish

Simpl is now on the App Store in French, German and Spanish, as well as English. While we have been global from the start with users ranging from Austria to Australia, Sweden to South Africa, and USA to UAE, we have always wanted to bring our award-winning app and support to as many people, in as many languages, as possible. This takes time and effort, and we are delighted to announce this first step in our app localisation.

Simpl Pitches Royal Palace, Wins 'Greatest Commercial Potential' Award

Pitch @ Palace

Jon Harris, founder of Simpl, gave a 3 minute pitch at St James's Palace in front of HRH The Duke of York and over 300 investors and business leaders. In a live audience vote, Simpl was awarded joint first place for 'Greatest Commercial Potential', second for 'Best Pitch' and joint third for 'Most Disruptive Idea'.

Commenting on the award, Jon Harris said, 'It's incredible for Simpl to win an award for commercial potential as voted for by investors, but we're not surprised. The market for radically simple website creation is huge and mobile internet growth is explosive. Simpl addresses a very real pain point for ordinary people who want a website - and that includes many of the investors who voted for us.'

In Stage 1, Simpl won through out of over 50+ startups that applied to Google Campus in London. At Stage 2, Simpl was chosen as a finalist out of 36 startups shortlisted from a dozen different networks. The final Pitch@Palace event, during which #pitchatpalace was trending on Twitter in the UK, was on 2nd April.

Simpl was profiled as a startup finalist in the Daily Telegraph on the day of the event, and featured as an award winner on 4th April.

Simpl selected for Pitch@Palace

Pitch @ Palace

Simpl has been selected as one of just 12 startup finalists for an event at St James's Palace, London, hosted by the HRH The Duke of York. Each startup will pitch in front of around 250 investors, business angels and CEOs. Pitch@Palace takes place on 2nd April.

Simpl was selected out of more than 50 startups that applied via Google Campus, and out of a further 36 that won through to a 'bootcamp' selection day earlier this week.

Simpl selected for Collision, Las Vegas

Collision Conference, Las Vegas

Simpl has been selected in the first batch of startups for a prestigious tech conference in Las Vegas, as both an attendee and a startup exhibitor.

Collision will connect tech industry leaders and investors with a select group of early stage startups, and is produced by the same team behind incredibly successful conferences F.ounders and The Summit, with the latter being described by Forbes as "The new hot ticket on the tech conference scene".

Naturally we are delighted to have been selected! We're looking forward to learning lots, meeting some great people and being amazingly inspired.

Introducing:
Cloud Restore

Cloud Restore: Your website's silver lining.

Last week, Simpl 2.1 took a bow, introducing stunning new website themes. We're thrilled by the response so far.

What we didn't mention is another great new feature: 'Cloud Restore'. This protects your creative efforts by storing website content in the cloud and keeping things in sync. So, if the worst happens and your iPad is lost or stolen, you can log back into the app on any iPad and continue right where you left off. It just works and is pretty amazing! Also with Cloud Restore teams can now manage a website from more than one iPad.

To use Cloud Restore, you'll need Simpl 2.1 and your website must be republished with that version of the app or above.

Themes for everyone – and every screen

Beautiful, responsive website themes with personality, in a range of colours, fonts, textures and backgrounds

Simpl 2.1 has gone live in the App Store! This awesome release brings stunningly beautiful new themes with incredible new theme variations. Every new theme is a smart theme, meaning it intelligently adapts to different screen sizes.

Catch it while it's hot or learn more on our Website Themes page.
