    I've browsed through the app store and did a cursory search here but couldn't find what I was looking for.

    Can anyone suggest a good app for web design on the iPad?

    Thanks
    Derek

    To the best of my knowledge there is no general web design app for the iPad yet. There are a couple apps that will let you blog to WordPress or Blogger sites, and one that will create small specialized web pages on the developer's site. That one is for the iPhone, but should work on the iPad. It's called Zapd.

    There are also a few HTML editors, and I believe some can upload to FTP sites.

    The pickings are slim.

    Thanks, I know it isn't great but figured there might be an "iWeb" equivalent.

    Appreciate the help.

    How I wish, but since Apple isn't going to support iWeb on the Mac or host sites after July 2012, I suspect it's not going to happen. I'm already planning my exit strategy.

    It would be nice if one of the other good WYSIWYG editors made an iPad version, even it is limited to updating sites. I'm eyeing Sandvox for the Mac, so I nominate them.

    Ok, Gusto is not WYSIWYG. I'm a bit too lazy and out of practice to create a complex site this way, but it would make a very good update tool, or just to throw up a simple site. Thanks.

    Exactly. Back in the way before times when us oldsters used the first word processors, you had to enter special codes for paragraphs, fonts, etc. If you were lucky the program would highlight the text to let you know you had done something to it, but that was about you could tell by just looking at the screen. The only way to see if you had it right was to print a test copy.

    Then some genius realized computers and displays were now powerful enough to show you what the page looked like while you created it. This was called What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG).

    In the early days of web page creation you had to do much the same thing, code everything by hand, then view it in a browser to see what it looked like. Naturally when we started getting editors that showed you the page as you created it they also received the WYSIWYG nom de plume.

    And now you know more than you wanted to. :D

    Not getting the boot, but there won't be any updates (or so the semi-confirmed rumors go). What is known is that Apple will not be supplying web hosting with iCloud, so when MobileMe goes away there goes your default iWeb host.

    It is possible to use iWeb with other hosts, but it will be less convenient and some of the flashier features may not work. All in all, it would be wise to start planning what you are going to do for a new site host and editor now.
