A quick tour of Simpl by MissTeeJO:
It's a free website-builder app for your iPad.
Download the app and add your content. Then create your account and publish your website right from the app.
Be our guest. Everyone gets a free two week trial of their website.
Simpl works on all iPads using iOS 5.0 or above.
We’re focused on iPad for now as it’s a great size for making websites.
How do you like your eggs?
The app gives you an instant website. Drop your content in, choose your theme, and hit publish – it takes just minutes.
Simpl app builds a website of up to 8x pages. (Each news page can have up to 20x published posts.)

There’s space for 18x photos in every gallery.

Up to 200x items are stored on your iPad, of which the 20x most recent items will show on your website.
