iPad and iPhone users love their devices. We want to work on the iPad & iPhone, we want to sleep with the iPad and iPhone. We want to do everything with just our iPhone! Today people spend more time on their iPad pro and iPhone than Mac computer. People hate desktops or laptops.

Everybody wants to work purely on mobile or small devices as it is easy, portable, you can work from anywhere, it’s light-weight, less eye strain, you get instant updates, notifications etc.

In the same way, you can build and manage a website on the iPhone or iPad..! There are many easy iPad compatible website builder apps available for both free & paid versions.

Wix is the easiest true drag and drop website builder in the world. There are no better website builders than Wix in my opinion!

You have 2 options:

  1. The Wix iPhone website builder app that helps you to create, manage and interact with your website
  2. Wix my mobile app that converts your Wix website itself into the iPhone, iPad or Android app automatically..!

First, you have to sign up to Wix on the desktop, then install the Wix iPad app & sign in.

Wix IOS app got 4.7 stars out of 5..!! with 14k user reviews..! Really impressive ratings.

Size – 145.7 MB
Compatibility – Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Wix doesn’t show iPad screenshots in the app store preview, but it is perfectly compatible with iPad. Wix iPhone or iPad app offers you a drag-and-drop builder designed specifically for the touchscreen.

Here are the Wix iPhone app main features.

The second scenario

If you want to convert your website itself into an iPhone app, then no worries, you can do it easily. If you created your website on Wix, then you can convert your entire website into an iPhone or iPad app using a single button within a minute. My Mobile App is available on Wix app market. This app will automatically convert your Wix website into an android and IOS app..! Then your website works like an app as well as a website. If a user searches in  in Google or types your website into the URL bar, then your website loads as a website.  When the user types your website on the iTunes app store, then your website app will appear and people can install your app. So that your website (that is the app) will be seen on user devices and you will get more visitors and a higher conversion rate. The app is like a downloaded version of your entire website that is adapted for mobile screens, so the users get a better interface and it’s a faster experience.Wix apple IOS app for iphone and ipad

Wix gives you FREE! $300 Ad vouchers & a free domain name for Unlimited, Pro & VIP plans..!, Ad vouchers mean you can advertise your website on Google, Microsoft, local listings etc.

Wix offers $300 Free ad vouchers if you buy its higher plans. OK, now let’s do the math.

For Unlimited plan $17X12 months = $204 and you get Free $300 ad vouchers.  Actually you get free $96. How? Because Wix is a big public company and it wants to increase its user growth so that its stock will rise and it gets investment. Wix will make a profit from your 2nd-year billing. It is not a scam. Wix is a highly reputable company.

Weebly is not a 100% drag and drop website builder, but it is one of the better companies in this industry. Weebly also gets a good rating, but it is not popular as Wix.

Go to WordPress .com & you sign up for free, then install WordPress app on iPhone & connect to your website.

Now take a look at the iPhone WordPress app.

WordPress iPhone App

Here are iPad screenshots

You can easily manage or create your WordPress blog or website right from your iPhone or iPad device. You can create and edit posts and pages, upload your favorite photos and videos, view stats and reply to comments etc.

You can’t install new plugins from the app as there are no plugin settings in the app. If you want to work with plugins, then you have to log in to the WordPress dashboard (you can log in from the iPhone or iPad). Its website itself work as an app. So you can install new plugins, themes and work on anything you want directly on your iPhone or iPad browser.

Conclusion:

There are two types of WordPress. One is open-source WordPress.org & it is the most popular web building application in the world. You get 70,000+ plugins & 50,000+ themes for free and unlimited premium third party items.  But you should read this step by step guide – How to make a website with WordPress.org to help you create it.

Another one is WordPress.com. You don’t get any plugins or apps.  The app doesn’t give you the power of WordPress plugins. Even they add them, you would need at least a week to learn how to use it. But using Wix you can build a website within an hour with the more up-to-date technology than WordPress.

Universe

This is an iPhone only website builder app. Using the Universe website builder iPhone app, you can create your website on iPhone & iPad only. That means you can’t use it on the desktop. If you want to make any changes, then you have to use your iPad or iPhone (Wix allows you to build your website on the app, desktop, any browsers including mobiles, all IOS  & Android devices & everywhere).

Universe website builder Requires iOS 11.2 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Conclusion:

Universe site editor is good. You can easily edit your website from your iPhone/iPad. However, this is just for iPhone/iPad/Android devices and not desktops or laptops, so not available in a browser. Very few users signed up for this app. I don’t recommend it as you may need to work from your laptop or desktop. Usually, when there are fewer users, the development also gets slower. This site builder gives you fewer features than the site builders which have an app and a browser version. If you want a quick and simple site, I suggest you go for Wix


5.

SimDif

As the name suggests, SimDif is a simple and intuitive website builder that is different from other website builders.

Requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Here is the SimDif iPhone app

The website editor is very simple to use and all the essential web elements are available.

SimDif is rated 4.7 out of 5 stars on the App Store with more than 1,000 reviews. They have 13k followers on Facebook and their user base is growing. It is available in 12 languages, and soon to be available in a whole host of languages, including under-represented languages.

If you need an app to help you make a website on your iPhone or iPad, then give SimDif a try.

Squarespace’s first look is fantastic, but on the back-end, it is not a good website builder.

Here is the Squarespace iPhone app

Squarespace loads slowly and sometimes apps crash. I don’t recommend Squarespace (because of its large marketing budget it became popular and got some good reviews so I mentioned here).

Pricing 

It starts from $12/month,  but if you need at least some basic features, then you should choose other plans -> $18/motnh, $26/month, $40/month etc.

Simpl Website Builder

Requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Here is the Simpl iPhone app

This is also another iPhone/iPad only site builder. It is a very basic site builder with no updated functionalities. So I won’t go into too much detail about this app here.

Best iPad & iPhone Website Builder List Summary

  1. Wix – Best for everything. A.I. designs for you. Separate iPad & iPhone editor
  2. Weebly – Best for a simple website
  3. WordPress – Best for those who want an advanced website
  4. Universe – iPad & iPhone only. Very few features
  5. SimDif – OK
  6. Squarespace – Slow, not an effective editor for iPad
  7. GoDaddy Website Builder – Focused on Domain Registration & not site builder
  8. Jimdo Creator – Some good updates released recently
  9. Strikingly – Good one
  10. Simpl Website builder – Ipad/iPhone only

Final Thoughts: If you want to build your website from your iPad or iPhone and also sometimes work from a laptop, then I recommend Wix. There are some site builders like Universe, Simdif that work on the iPad or iPhone app only. However, I’m suggesting that if you only work from your iPad that Universe or Simdif would be my only recommendations. I still highly and strongly recommend Wix..! Wix has got 1000s of features compared to just 100s on site builders like Universe or Simdif. You could try Universe, but you may get experience problems or you feel there aren’t as many features as other websites. Once you have created it, then you can’t transfer your exact website, so just sign up to Wix.com from your desktop or laptop or from your mobile browser, then install Wix iPhone/iPad website builder app. (Wix doesn’t show its iPad screenshot on the app store, but it is actually built for both iPhone & iPad and works perfectly). After that, you can do any type of website from your iPad/iPhone.

All the best for your new website!

  • Your English sucks. Why don’t you get a native speaker to proofread your article before publishing it? Your spelling and grammar errors are so annoying that I quit reading during the Wix section. Some foreign accents are attractive when speaking, but not in writing. Amateurish and lazy.

    • This post is technical. So people can understand with little grammar mistakes. If you tell me what you don’t understand in this post, then my proofreader may help you.
      Thanks.
