How do you actually build your website?
All of the programs here use the familiar choose-a-template approach, but there are big differences between what’s on offer. EverWeb has 32 brochure-style templates in a range of sectors, while Freeway Pro has a handful of email and presentation templates and eight generic site templates.
RapidWeaver presents five themes at startup (52 are actually installed, but that’s not immediately obvious), WebAcappella has nine shops and 15 kinds of business sites, Flux has 28 startlingly pretty designs covering every conceivable site including iTunes Extras and iTunes LPs. And Sandvox has 64 designs that remind us of PowerPoint templates.
Editing and creating pages in EverWeb, RapidWeaver and Sandvox is simple, intuitive and very iWork-y. Freeway and WebAcappella will be obvious to anybody who’s ever laid out a document in a DTP app or designed something nice in Pages, while Flux makes it easy to find your way around code and style sheets and to see exactly what’s going on in your project.
All of the apps offer a range of templates, but the quality differs widely.
