Be your own website developer and designer even without any experience with coding or designing! Mobirise is a platform that lets you drag and drop images, videos or text until you create your site the way you love it! It is absolutely free. This is not the end - it lets you preview how the website looks on other smartphones, tablets or desktops!
OFFLINE, very customisable, easy to use, export legible codeCons:
not enough blocs (even taking into account the paid options!)
Mobirise is fantastic, especially considering that it is 100% FREE for personal and commercial use. The websites you make with it can be exported into HTML, CCS and JS. The code is easy to read (another website builder I've tried exports all lines of code into a single line. To a browser that makes no difference, but it makes manually editing stuff really hard and slow).
The con is it's pretty limiting. I have made a few websites with it and despite my best efforts, they all look similar. I guess that's mostly because of Bootstrap BUT Mobirise plays a role too. For example, it has no option to have the logo in the middle of the header and the links on each side, you can only have the logo on the left, links on the right and CTA button far right (I think there's a single paid theme that includes a header with the logo in the middle). You can purchase additional themes which come with their own blocs. There are also AMP themes if you wanna make AMP website that load very fast, of course those are even more limiting.
I know Mobirise has had an Android app for years, but I never tried it cause I read it was terrible but they updated it last month and apparently it's good now (cross compatibility with Desktop app!).
I love that Mobirise does not try to lock you into their system in any way. You are free to build something basic with Mobirise and then tweak it.
With that said, they include hidden advertisement for Mobirise EVERYWHERE in your code. For example, you add an image, and by DEFAULT that image links to mobirise.com if clicked (I don't think you can switch that off even you buy a premium theme) and the "alt" is "mobirise" as well! Of course you can manually rename those but if you forget just one image, the link is there. Also, they include the name "mobirise" in file and folder names so you have to spend a LOT of time if you wanna remove all mentions of mobirise from the code.Anna Filou has used this product for one year.
Easy to use - build one page, landing, and other web pages fastCons:
Can sometimes misbehave especially where images seem to take a while to load...
There has been a number of updates / improvements. Well worth checking out if you need to create product pages fast!Brian Francis has used this product for one year.
