SquareSpace.com First Impressions

Last night I signed up for the 2 week trial of SquareSpace.com after hearing the advertisement on Leo Laporte’s TWiT network.  He’s said he will not advertise products he doesn’t actually approve of, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

It only took a few minutes to get it up and online.  I just picked a template, filled in some basic info, set up my cname from www.peq.me, wrote a quick about and welcome page.  Amazingly, this seems to be going exactly as advertised.

One of the things that drew me into trying this is that there is an iPhone app for updating.  The app seems very nice.  It opened quickly and seems to have a very usable interface- just as polished looking as the web editor does. I tested adding pictures by uploading some screenshots of the app.  

 

 

I’ve got nothing negative to say here.  If you’re looking for an extremely simple way to quickly get a website up and running, this is my new recommendation.  If you see this page still alive more than two weeks from 5.4.2010, then I’ve become a paying member.
