How does the web app look and feel to use?

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.

Pagefin is available to all users free of charge.
