Review: Create a Website in 60 Seconds From Your iPhone with Zapd
Posted on March 30, 2011 by eli courey
Zapd is an awesome new app for iPhone that lets you create a beautiful website in about 60 seconds. You can choose from over a dozen themes, and easily add photos, text and links. When you’re done, you can share your website with friends on Facebook, Twiiter or email from within the app. Zapd reminds me of an iPhone version of Apple’s iWeb.
Zapd is free, both the app and the web hosting. They will be coming out with premium themes in the future, which will most likely be available as an in-app purchase. Version 1.0 of Zapd lacks some features I would like to have, but it looks like they are planning on updating it soon to include custom urls, videos, comments, groups for sharing and more.
Check out Zapd in the App Store and feel free to post your Zapd website url in the comments. Watch the video below for a quick demo.
