Most of us want to share photos and videos the moment they are captured...and Weebly’s iPhone app’s simple drag and drop features make the process a breeze.

Weebly (http://www.weebly.com), a leading website creation platform powering the web, is proud to announce its first app for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. The app allows Weebly's existing 11 million users and anyone with the desire to create or manage a new blog or website to do so conveniently from their iPhone or iPod touch.

The Weebly App complements the Web experience giving users 24/7 access to moderate and respond to blog comments, manage leads from their site’s contact forms, and view website traffic trends, all from the palm of their hand.

Drag & Drop blogging lets users easily add and reorder text, photos and video in their posts, enabling quick content creation with one-click auto-posting to Facebook and Twitter. Complete with rich text editing, the on-the-go posting experience with the Weebly App is unmatched. See the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czGOFgR79yQ&hd=1.

Nearly 10% of the United States population visits a Weebly-built website each month, making it a powerful tool for bloggers, website creators and small businesses owners. The speed and efficiency at which the Weebly App allows site creators to attend to their websites ensures bloggers can respond to their audiences immediately and that small business owners never miss a customer lead coming in through their site.

“We believed it was critical to give our users an iOS compliment to the web experience, as bloggers, website creators and small business owners increasingly need to communicate with their audiences on the fly,” said David Rusenko, co-founder and CEO of Weebly. “Our goal with the Weebly App was to make it easy and simple for anyone to create and update their site or blog entirely from their iPhone or iPod touch, particularly as these devices become more intrinsic to our everyday lives. Most of us want to share photos and videos the moment they are captured -- or respond to customers and clients immediately -- and the app's simple Drag & Drop features make the process a breeze.”

Some app highlights include:

  • Free sign up and website creation
  • Drag & Drop blogging allows users to quickly add and reorder text, video and photos in posts
  • View website statistics, including page views/unique visitors, referring sites and top search terms
  • Check and respond to form submissions (RSVP, lead, contact forms, etc.)
  • View, moderate and respond to blog comments

The Weebly App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore.
