For Immediate Release - August 21, 2013, 8pm Pacific
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 21, 2013 – Jimdo, a leading website builder, today released a native iOS application. Available for free in the App Store, Jimdo’s mobile app makes it possible to create and edit websites on an iPhone or iPad. All of Jimdo’s existing 8 million websites can also be edited in the app.
"The desktop version of Jimdo is already powerful," said Christian Springub, Jimdo's co-founder. "By integrating the new app with our existing platform, users now have the freedom to decide when, where, and with which device they edit their sites. Users can even start on one device and finish on another."
Jimdo's iOS app opens up the possibility to add, modify, and delete content on the go. For instance, the app enables a photographer to add galleries at a shoot, a chef to add a new recipe page right from the kitchen, or a group of friends to create a travel website while on vacation. Anybody can use Jimdo for iOS to add new photos, galleries, and text; add, delete, and reorder pages; and track their website’s traffic. All websites are optimized for mobile and desktop.
Jimdo focuses on developing a product that meets its customers' immediate needs and also sets the stage for long-term innovation. "We've seen people trying to log in to Jimdo on their iPhones and iPads. We know that the demand for a native app is there, and now the wait is over,” said Stephen Belomy, Jimdo’s U.S. CEO. “This app is more feature-rich than any other in our industry, and it's only going to get better."
The app has already received positive reviews from Jimdo users. Brent Thomas, owner of BikeWrappers.com, commented, “As a small business owner, I find Jimdo’s app great for making quick changes while I’m traveling. Being able to keep fresh content on my website is extremely important to me, and this app allows me to manage my site and business without having to rely on a desktop.”
