OnePager was founded in February of 2011 by Matthew Shampine, Yin Yin Chan, Eric Tarn and Matthew Moore. The application offers a number of convenient tools and has received mostly praise for its functionality as well as economical pricing. The only shortcoming of OnePager seems to be its mobile optimization, or lack of it. The website does not adjust text size and other elements to make it more convenient when read on a mobile device. OnePager websites can be displayed on mobile devices, but the text looks quite small.
OnePager offers all the standard elements most people expect out of a website building tool. The application provides a user friendly interface and a number of customization options so the user can create an original page that suits the needs of their customers. The lack of mobile optimization might be one of the differences that knocks OnePager a step down from alternative applications. Business owners want their sites to be viewable from any device without any difficulties so mobile optimization is really a must for many.
OnePager invites inexperienced users with an editing tool that is very easy to understand. The user is given access to all editing options, including content, theme, style and layout, at the bottom of the page. The website appears in the top portion so the user can observe their progress without leaving the work area. The application is very neat and organized. The user does not encounter any clutter. Simple, square buttons allow the user to easily find the tools they need to start creating a web page.
A new user can begin by clicking the large, orange “Start Building” button along the right hand side of the Onepageapp.com homepage. Doing so takes the user to the site builder. The user can completely design their website before signing up. Once the page is ready to be displayed, the user can click the “Launch” button found along the lower, right hand side to continue. The next page asks which plan the user would like to purchase. After selecting an option, the user is asked to choose their desired OnePage URL (or a custom domain), email address, password and a coupon code if they have one. The user must also check the small box at the bottom of the form to confirm their agreement with the OnePager terms and conditions.
OnePager offers users two account options. The first is a free account which includes access to the OnePager editor and site hosting with unlimited bandwidth. The mid-range plan costs $10 per month and includes the ability to use a custom URL, site analytics, online reputation management tools and the ability to send newsletters to customers. Users can also purchase the premium plan on a yearly basis, which costs $8 per month when paid annually.
OnePager is ideal for small businesses that want a very simple website. The application includes a number of customization options but is only capable of producing relatively basic websites. The finished sites look good and are sufficient to share information and advertising materials with customers online. The user interface is very easy to understand and provides the user with a number of tools, including columns, content modules, color choices and other standard editing options.
