Customer Reviews

Great for the simpler pages

I’m putting together a group of web pages for multiple companies that run a gamut from simple to complex. I have the tools for the complex pages, and with Sparkle I now have the option for the simpler pages without all extra options. Although I don’t require it all the time, I do rely on it and am glad to see that the developer continues to work to make it better. thanks for app and the support.

The app I would have written myself if I had time

Sparkle lacks advanced features such as search or e-commerce, but there is simply no easier way to create web pages or organize a website, and believe me, I’ve tried many options. The app itself is beautiful and will help you create beautiful pages, easily.

Pinch me - its GREAT

I needed to update a basic web site quickly. I’m not a web developer.
Working with other programs was frustrating as I did not want to spend a lot of time with documentation.
Downloaded this and in a short time - Website up and working, desktop and mobile.
