I don’t like Impress.ly service! It may be nice for someone enthusiastic about new technologies but for an experienced user like me this it’s just a useless attempt to offer unpractical tools in an innovative way. Here’s why I can’t stand this platform.
• Too few templates available.
There’re not many designs to choose from. What they offer looks generic and you can’t customize it in a proper way.
• Elements miscategorized.
If you want to find shapes it’s not that easy to do. All of their elements are categorized in a wrong way.
• Their platform isn’t stable. It tends to freeze or function unpredictably.
I have a feeling that developers didn’t take enough time to build the final version of their product. It looks raw and unfinished.
I made some kind of a blog page on Impress.ly and I regret about it. I’ve been having a problem with it for over a week and it’s still not fixed. I don’t know how to connect my site to Facebook. I’ve sifted through their whole platform and it seems to me that there’s no such an opportunity.
I’ve also tried to build a kind of store here and I got frustrated once again. I’ve worked hard writing descriptions for the products uploaded and I discovered their fatal flaw later. This builder doesn’t calculate shipping. This is impossible! So international buyers would have to pay the same amount of money as domestic ones if I published my shop. What a shame! I could’ve lost so much money on it if I weren’t careful enough. I’m taking my site down which is obvious.
Impress.ly is a big fun. Honestly, I’ve never had such user experience before. Their mobile-centric approach to making sites is unexpected and interesting but it feels like their App is a bit underworked. Since Android and iOS devices have totally flooded the world Impress.ly is a good place to create an App looking site which will function adequately on any device including computers as well. I liked it that when I registered on this builder it just took my Facebook page and created a mobile-oriented site for me. Impress.ly can do the same with your existing site or any type of a business page which saves a lot of time.
As I’ve mentioned there’s a feeling that this App is underworked. There’re too little categories as for me. You can choose from templates for such categories as Restaurant, Musician, Health & Beauty, Personal. Too limited in my opinion. The templates offered are still easy to modify so if you use your imagination you can go out of the box. Impress.ly is a revolutionary service which has a great potential. It’s interesting to use this service. Don’t hesitate to give it a try.
I’ve registered on Impress.ly and I thought that this service would be better.
Unfortunately it doesn’t display certain content when in Preview mode. I made a website for my café and menu URL was pulled from my website. All I could see was a message saying that this content would be displayed on a published site only. It’s kind of silly because I want to see my website without any limitations in Preview mode.
Whenever I edit my website on Impress.ly I’m constantly interrupted by a box which insists on publishing my website. It’s quite inconvenient and distractive.
The features offered are also limited. Their contact form includes six fields but they’re not customizable. It still provides a Thank You message but there’s no way to modify it either.
The good thing is that this builder is much easier at use than any other platform. It also offers ten different layouts for your website which are generated individually but you’ll still want to modify them.
