Jimdo Launches Website Creation Platform on Android

Website creation platform Jimdo has launched its app on Android, in an effort to support more complete cross-platform website building across both mobile and desktop devices. Using Jimdo on Android, users can sign up and create a website from scratch, editing and rearranging content and site navigation options, all from within the app on smartphones or tablets.

When editing on the mobile app, users can choose a template and overall website name, add text and photos (including galleries) to the page, add new pages, edit existing pages, change the orientation of content on a page, and more. Premium users can also use the app to view their website’s statistics.

Via the platform’s blog module (which was released on iOS last February), users can manage their blog posts, drafting or publishing complete blog posts from the app. This includes support for adding images to posts.

“This release reinforces us as the leader in mobile web building apps,” says Matthias Henze, Jimdo co-founder, in a statement. “Now you can start a website on your Android phone, edit it on your desktop at the office, and then rearrange it from your iPad during your commute home.”

Jimdo for Android is available to download for free on the Google Play store. The app was originally released on iOS in August 2013. In addition to its free service option, users can subscribe to JimdoPro for $90 a year, or JimdoBusiness for $240 a year.
