One of the many options available to you is Freeway. It comes in both Pro and Express flavours. We are looking at the much cheaper but more limited Express version. You’ll be happy to know, however, that even Softpress’ less feature-packed offering makes iWeb look like a one-trick pony. When you load the software you are greeted, as you are with most software these days, by a template chooser. Once you’ve picked a baseline design to start you off, you enter into the editing window. Here, you will find the interface looks a little more sparse than the iWeb interface and as a newcomer to the software it may not be immediately apparent what you need to do to get started.
We highly recommend that you take a minute or two to check out the video tutorials on the Softpress website. They reside in the Support section and are the perfect way to see just how easy-to-use the software is. We readily admit, however, that the website being created in the video isn’t as inspiring as it could be. It’s certainly not as vibrant as anything Apple would do. Don’t let that hinder your learning curve though, as there are some important elements in there you’ll need to grasp the basics of the software. Once you’ve done that you can return to the app and begin the process of building your site.
Unfortunately you can’t load iWeb files into Freeway and continue the evolution of your existing site. You can, however, create everything you can in iWeb using Freeway with a ton of perks on top. The main similarity between Freeway and iWeb is the most important one; both let you create websites as if the software were page layout rather than code-based. So, in Freeway Express, as in iWeb, you can drag and drop elements onto the page, drag them around and add all manner of cool elements to the website as a whole like image galleries, videos, links, text and loads more.
As a step up from iWeb, Freeway is the perfect app for those who’ve grown out of Apple’s built-in web design app. The software isn’t as instantly accessible as iWeb, but handy online videos and a logically organised feature set make it easy to manage with a little effort. The benefit of a sparser, more clinical interface is a setup that can gr
Freeway isn’t available on the Mac App Store but it still offers stunning value as a direct download. The benefit of not being on the store is that you can download a demo and test the software before shelling out, something we highly recommend.
