Customer Reviews

Nowhere near as easy as iWeb!

I purchased Sandvox as my iWeb created site kept on crashing, so I decided it was time to re-create my website on a modern piece of software. I now know that I should have done some research to check it out! It is really difficult to do what you want to do in Sandvox, you can’t drag pictures around the template or size them there are loads of problems with it, especially if you’ve been using iWeb which was excellent, although it was, apparently untidy coding, but there were bits of software you could buy to optimise it such as HTML-Optimiser and iWeb SEO tool. There are no helpful bits of software with Sandbox, you’re just stuck with it! I tried to recreate the website but gave up and paid a professional to do it, so I wasted £59. There is no hope of a refund either, as they are really sure that their Sandvox is the bees knees! I’ve got some news for Karelia…………It’s rubbish!


what an incomprehensible pile of rubbish! I cannot speak I am so angry that I paid for this app. absolutely awful in every way. hate it. deleted. wish i could get a refund. but it doesnt work like that. complete scam. WARNING: DO NOT BUY THIS AWFUL APP!!!!
