FreeWeb.me is an application for producing a custom website easily without HTML coding experience. It can be created and edited via site editor or “live” right on the web page itself.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

FreeWeb.me appears to be relatively new. There is no information about its history available other than 1500 unique visitors in January 2010, declining sharply to 238 unique visitors in April 2010.

What are the differences to other apps?

The biggest selling point of FreeWeb.me is the huge gallery of design templates. There are themes that range from cooking and food to business and more. Abstract designs are also available.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

FreeWeb.me allows users to edit via an editing interface or to edit live, viewing the page as it will be seen by site visitors. In live mode, page elements may be moved via drag-and-drop. The edit page mode is less intuitive and is more difficult to use – especially for users with limited web building experience. The live editor is very intuitive and simple.

Inserting images is easy; however there does not appear to be a photo editor for resizing or cropping. Once inserted, there does not appear to be a way to alter the image in any way. Flash tutorials are provided, but in testing, editing did not work as described.

Overall, FreeWeb.me is a good web utility in live edit mode with the exception of image management. Clearly, some updates need to be done to make this process more intuitive with easier to use image editing tools.

How does the registration process work?

Users begin by entering their desired site name. This leads to a sign in page where users enter a username, email, and password. The next step is to browse through template designs and choose one. There are several designs and themes to choose from. Users then enter their company information and choose what pages should be created (about, news, contact, etc). The site is immediately created and the user is given links to view it and for admin purposes.

What does it cost to use the application?

A basic website is free of charge. A PRO version is in development and will offer custom domains, FTP access, and ad-free designs.

Who would you recommend the application to?

For those users desiring a customized web site, but have no HTML experience or knowledge, Freeweb may be a good tool. If images are an integral part of the site, this may not be the application to use.
