AOTB Tech Review: Scrapplet

Posted February 5, 2009 - By Eugene Morton

Not every bit of webtoolery on AOTS strikes my fancy. For example, I couldn't care less about what new social network takes the best features from Twitter and Facebook and mashes them up to form a mega social network (most of the time I prefer that even my best friends leave me the hell alone, so I definitely don't need to have a Twitter page). However, today's website-building, Web Tool, Scrapplet is another story entirely.

I'm a photographer and I'm always looking for a cool place to put my photos. However, building my own site has proven difficult and time consuming and I'm sure I'm not the only one to feel this way. If you've ever tried to build a site then you're aware that unless you know html like the back of your hand or own a copy of Dreamweaver, it can be a real pain in the ass to get even minimal results after hours of work.

However, Scrapplet's simple drag and drop interface makes building amazing looking websites a breeze. Heard that before? Of course you have, but I'm telling you, I've used it and seen better results in a shorter period of time than I have using similar "build a website based on a template" services like Squarespace (a Web Tool from last September, which I also use).

You want pictures to beautify your virtual home? Just upload them and drag 'em where you want 'em to go. You want a fancy backdrop, tabs, frames, whatever? You can have it all. If you can see it in your mind's eye, you can build it in minutes with Scrapplet and without possessing a lot of technical know-how.

Frustrated web surfers, don't give up on the idea of building a space for yourself on the web and don't fork over hundreds or even thousands of dollars before giving (the basic version of) Scrapplet a try for free. You won't regret it.
