Our review on the mobile mobile website builder
Thanks to its built-in Super-wysiwyg editor which is present in every content field, the mobile website builder Wobile allows users to insert texts and pictures anywhere (logo area , header, footer, introduction area, etc.) in a mobile page without prior layout driven restriction. And it enables them to freely modify styles, layouts and dimensions of any element to customize page design. All of these makes Wobile a great tool for making article based mobile website (mobile blog, mobile news,…) and showcase mobile website (m-commerce, business showcase, …).
Moreover, as using instructions are explained in details in various stages of processing, Wobile is within everyone’s reach regardless their computer skills. By cons the tool isn’t intuitive enough for impatient users. Firstly, there is a lot of steps to go through before getting to final results and secondly reading the several helps and tutorials almost everywhere may slow down user workflow.

How to create you mobile blog and mobile website
When you build a mobile website or a mobile blog with Wobile, you need first to choose the template that matches your need among those in the templates library. Each template comes with a certain number of pre-built mobile pages but you can also add your own. Several types of page are available namely news page (or custom page), gallery page, form page and much more.
Wobile constructs automatically your mobile website navigation menus and place them at headers and footers of every page. You can however customize these menus by changing their texts, reordering their contents and by including pictures. To improve navigability, you can also move certain element of a menu into a submenu and therefore establish a three level layered mobile website (Home page / Pages / Sub pages).
When all pages are done, you can add your texts and pictures by using the MSWord like built-in rich text editor (wysiwyg) and by filling out corresponding customization forms. Beside standard body texts, some kinds of page (gallery page, shopping pages) may require specific information and setting such as introductory text and layout parameters.
At the end of the process, you can have a preview of your mobile website by using Wobile’s phone emulator.
