Simpl Rated 5 Stars On US App Store

* Simpl was rated 5 stars for version 3.2.1 in UK, USA and Canada on 12th August 2015.

Simpl.com, Support Desk & Website Builder Blog are Mobile-Friendly

Simpl has strong momentum thanks to the incredible support of our customers. Our award-winning app is now rated ★★★★★ five stars and is No.1 on the App Store for website builders!*

Plus the amazing response to our discounted pricing options has been truly humbling.

Today, we have more great news to share with you.

Starting with our iPad app 3 years ago, Simpl has always been a pioneering, mobile-first company. Last year we added the iPhone app AND offered mobile-friendly website themes - a long time before most site builders and 14 months ahead of Google's big change to its mobile search results. We just love mobile!

Today Simpl is delighted to announce that our own website www.simpl.com is also now mobile-friendly. Take a look from your iPhone or iPad and you'll see that it looks great, is much easier-to navigate, has crystal-clear fonts and spacing. We've worked hard to make it a thing of beauty.

Plus our Support Desk and all-new Website Builder Blog are mobile-optimised too.

We are a small, independent company and we couldn't have got this far without people like you. Thanks for supporting us on the journey and please let us know if there is any way we can serve you better.

* Simpl was rated 5 stars in UK and Canada in July 2015, and 4.5 stars in USA. Simpl was the first result on the UK App Store for the search term 'website builder' in July 2015.

'Gold Standard' on the App Store

Five star website builder app

We're pretty excited today: Simpl has achieved the 'gold standard' 5 star App Store rating in UK & Canada. In the USA, the app has an exceptional 4.5 star rating too.

It's pretty rare for apps to hit 5 stars, so we are stoked. And it's important - if sad - to underline the fact that these are genuine ratings and not paid-for fakes.

The Simpl team is honoured by the trust our users and customers have placed in us. Thanks to all those who have reviewed/rated the app. We appreciate you!

Changes To Simpl's Pricing

From Wed 20th May 2015 we are making changes and improvements to pricing, to better support our customers. We are excited to let you know about these changes and how you can benefit.

Simpl has always been a free download on the App Store. So first off, we are pleased to confirm that Simpl app and its updates will remain free of charge.

1. Monthly Subscriptions Frozen

For existing users, we are delighted to announce that we are freezing the monthly hosting subscription at $4.99. This is the same price we have held since Simpl launched. We are doing this to say a huge “thank you” for your phenomenal support. But the good news doesn’t stop there…

2. NEW Annual Subscriptions — Get Two Months Free!

Many of you have asked to pay yearly. So we are happy to announce a new annual subscription of only $49.00 for existing users, giving you two months free. This lowers the monthly cost to just $4.08. We think this is a really sweet deal and we hope you agree!

3. New Starting Price — Two Months Free With Annual Subscription

After 20th May 2015, our starting price will rise to $7.99 monthly, or $79.00 annually with two months free. The app now delivers YouTube video integration, PayPal shop and mobile-ready themes on both iPhone and iPad, and the new price reflects these great features. New customers will save money with the annual subscription, giving two months of free website hosting, which lowers the monthly cost to just $6.58. It’s a very affordable deal for home business users.

Subscribe Now To Get The Old Price!

Everyone who has created a Simpl username on or before Wed 20th May 2015 will automatically be offered the old monthly and annual subscriptions when they login. To create a Simpl username, you must download the app AND publish your website for the first time by 20th May 2015. You will then be able to login with that username and purchase your subscription at the lower rate. Usernames created after this date will not qualify for the old pricing.

Subscribe Now

We are excited to announce these pricing options for the benefit of all users. Remember, you can subscribe now to get the old pricing, but prices for new usernames will rise after Wed 20th May 2015.

Best wishes
The Simpl Team
