EverWeb lets you create attractive webpages even if you do not have coding skills. The application has an intuitive interface, which is quite similar to those of other website creators. In this regard, there is the working space or canvas, where pages are composed. Moreover, there is the left sidebar to explore your site structure. A very important element is the right sidepanel, which has three different tabs: Inspector, Assets and Widgets.

As most similar applications, EverWeb lets you start from scratch yet, should you want to save some effort, you can take advantage of the available templates, most of which need to be downloaded from the developer's site. It is great that the templates are responsive, meaning that they adapt to the type of device you open the site on. Fortunately, even though the templates are quite beautiful, they can still be modified to meet specific needs.

The application's workflow is quite easy to follow. However, if you have any questions, you can watch the tutorial videos or consult the online discussion pages. If you decide to start from a template, you can populate the pages by dragging and dropping readymade widgets, such as photo galleries, image sliders, video and navigation menu, to name but a few. Likewise, you can drag and drop images, PDFs and eBooks. However, the tool has some limitations; for instance, you cannot edit the text section widget directly, instead, you must do it from Inspector. Moreover, HTML tables or bullet-pointed lists need to be created manually.

While you are creating your site, it is possible to preview it on any of the browsers installed on your computer. Unfortunately, it is difficult to test a site's design responsivity because, unlike other similar tools, EverWeb does not support previewing your work on a connected portable device. Once you feel satisfied with the results, the contents can be uploaded to the desired FTP server or otherwise use the developer's hosting service.

All in all, EverWeb helps you increase productivity by building a website in practically no time. This product is a good choice for those who want to avoid writing code, thanks to its extensive drag-and-drop widget collection. The product can be tried at no cost but it does not support publishing your work (not even to local folders) unless you open an EverWeb account.
