Jimdo is going mobile - and so are you!

Take all 4 million JimdoPages - yours too! - with you wherever you go. Now you can pull up any JimdoPage on your smartphone and view a mobile-optimized version, and anyone can check out a mobile-ready version of your JimdoPage on a phone. Anytime, anywhere!

 

1 Mobile View, 3 Awesome Features

A mobile version of a JimdoPage isn't earthshattering -- but the mobile Jimdo version for your phone has a few hidden surprises. The site is optimized for smartphones and their smaller screens, and the layout of the page takes that into consideration. For example, it leaves the sidebar out so that the main content takes center stage.

 

Jimdo Mobile View Highlights

  • For every JimdoPage, the mobile version is automatically generated. That means each of the 4 million JimdoPages online (and all future sites) come with a version ready for smartphone browsing.
  • Have an online store on your Jimdo site? The new mobile view also includes a mobile checkout option, so customers can view and buy from your store on the go. In fact, if you have PayPal enabled as a payment method, we've integrated PayPal's mobile checkout so you can take PayPal payments through your mobile online store.
  • Integration with other web services. If you're viewing a Google Maps element on a JimdoPage, you (or visitors to your site) can click on it and jump right into the Maps application on your phone. Makes getting driving directions even easier!

    Not sure if a lot of people are ready to buy stuff on their smartphones but excellent news for local businesses like restaurants and stores! I love the music in your video, what's the band's name?

    We love this change. I noticed the feature on our own site, and we've been showing our clients (and potential clients) that Jimdo is up to speed with mobile tech. Great job! You guys make selling Jimdo as the most user friendly DIY we platform a breeze. :)

    The phone is the new office/ home. Geo politics now march to the SMS. Load up your videos and make sure your site is for the good.

    Is the mobile version included in the jimdo business package of $180/yr? I didn't see it listed as a feature included in that package?

    Hi Irene, the mobile version is included on all Jimdo versions, actually. Thanks for the tip about it not being listed on the package, we should add that!
