Pagefin has been featured by websites like Free Technology for Teachers and Makeuseof. The application was created with help from the Google App Engine.
Pagefin features several common functions of drag and drop web editors, but does so entirely through the user’s web browser. No downloads are required, and all hosting is done via Pagefin’s company servers. Setting up a Pagefin website is free and fast, and doesn’t demand an expansive knowledge of web design or HTML.
Pagefin is very easy to use. All functions are accessed from the application’s menu bar, and objects on a page can simply be picked up and dropped wherever the user desires. The application automatically saves as changes are made, helping to limit the risk of losing work due to a sudden error or accidental browser closure. Pagefin is built with non-techies in mind, and lays each step of building a website out clearly and simply.
Registration is not required for Pagefin—users can start creating a site without sharing any information. However, the application does allow for registrations and is synced through Google accounts. If the user does not have a Google account, he or she will be asked to make one during the registration process.
Pagefin is available to all users free of charge.
