03 MAR 2014: We are investigating an issue affecting website publishing. We apologise for any inconvenience and will update here as soon as we can.
UPDATE AT 1400 HRS: The publishing issue is now fixed. We greatly appreciate the patience of all users who were affected by it.
It's a free website-builder app for your iPad. Get the app and add your content. Then publish your new website right from the app. It's that simple!
Be our guest. Everyone gets a free two week trial of their website.
Yes, Simpl 2.0 is optimised for iOS7!
We’re focused on iPad for now, but stay tuned for updates.
How do you like your eggs?
It takes just a few minutes. Add your content, choose a theme and publish!
Simpl app builds a website of up to 8x pages.
There are five page types: Text, Quote, Photos, News or Contact.
There is space for 18x photos. Simpl also supports multiple photo galleries.
Yes - a News page lists your entries in date order, like a simplified blog.
Up to 200x are stored on your iPad, of which the 20x most recent are published.
Choose any video on YouTube, or upload your own video to YouTube first. Then simply add it from within the app.
Select the text you wish to turn into a link, and tap on the "chain" icon next to the bold/italic buttons. Then in the Create link pop-up, add your website address after the "http://" bit (eg "http://www.simpl.com") and tap "Done".
Yes. On the Create link pop-up, instead of using "http://www.example.com", use the format "mailto:email@example.com". This works on any Text or News page. On a Contact page, email links are automatically created.
Create your account and publish from the Settings section of the app. You can also share your website updates to Facebook & Twitter.
Preview shows the website you’ve made, just on your iPad. Publishing puts your website on the internet for everyone to see.
We designed Simpl to be, well, simple. So HTML or other snippet integration is not currently supported. Sorry!
We will be adding website analytics in due course. For now we are 100% focused on supporting our users to help them get the right traffic to their websites.
