Weebly by Weebly Inc
MY APPLE PODCAST - BEST PRODUCTIVITY APP 2015
We voted Weebly the best productivity app for obvious reasons. The official website for My Apple Podcast was created with Weebly. We have used Weebly's website creation tool long before it became available for mobile devices and witnessed its expansive growth over the years. Weebly is a great website creation tool that incorporates drag-and-drop widgets for easy design and layout. Widgets include text, images, galleries, contact forms, video YouTube integration, audio, surveys, embeds, dividers, spacers, search, social media integration, and commerce. Over the past several years, Weebly developed tools for businesses, expanded options for templates, implemented responsive designs, and developed an iPad app for complete website editing. Weebly dominates the website creation category, since there are no other alternatives out there for iOS that enable you to manage websites at the caliber that Weebly does. Weebly's plans are very affordable and they have fantastic online support and tutorials. It is anticipated that Weebly will soon be owned by Square.
