Oxford, United Kingdom (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Softpress (http://www.softpress.com) has announced the exciting release of its popular web design software Freeway 7 Pro, which now features responsive design for creating websites that automatically adapt to display for any device. With its easy and intuitive ‘page layout approach,’ Freeway Pro is the powerful web design tool for Mac OS X that enables users to design, build and publish beautiful, professional-quality websites and e-mail newsletters without the necessity for coding or HTML knowledge – and now Freeway 7 includes more flexibility than ever before.

Freeway 7 now offers responsive web design, which means that web designers can easily create sites that will adapt as needed to display for the correct devices, from phones and tablets, to laptops and more. It’s a vital task in today’s world, where an enormous amount of web surfing is accomplished on mobile devices, and thanks to Freeway 7, it’s now easy to accommodate those different device layouts for a site without the use of separate pages for each device.

Freeway 7's easy WYSIWYG approach on the Mac OS X platform means that anyone can begin designing for the web in minutes. Users can create stunning original websites and e-mail newsletters without having to code, simply by manipulating 'box elements' of text, images or videos as needed. Freeway 7 then automatically translates these elements into the necessary code for publishing to the web (or to e-mail newsletter format) automatically.

“We’re excited to announce the launch of Freeway 7, continuing our tradition of offering the easiest tools for the toughest jobs,” comments Joe Billings, Softpress Managing Director. “Websites are visual experiences. We believe, to be truly intuitive, the website design process should be just the same, so that the most creative designers have the freedom to design in an entirely visual way. Freeway 7 is our best work yet.”

Freeway 7 also continues to make it easy for users to incorporate dynamic functionality such as e-commerce, multimedia, and navigation menus to sites, maximizing all of the latest technologies available to web designers along with surprising flexibility and customization.
