Simple Different Ethics
The user first approach
Part of Simple Differents' ethics and SimDif 2's design is to guide its users as they build websites. Encouraging them to create and organize content that their readers would like to see. This is the best way to structure websites for Google.
Simple Different is driven by a set of ethics as they develop, educate, and offer useful services to the world
A website creation app
SimDif 2 is an app to create full websites, all from a phone without any technical knowledge.
Make a site by adding pages and blocks and then adding content. Blocks make pages, pages make sites. It works on phones, computers, and tablets.
Who is it for?It is for anybody that wants to create a website, hassle-free. The majority of users today are small business owners, communities and clubs, entrepreneurs, and people selling services.
Why was it created?Simple Different developed SimDif 2 to meet the website creation needs of people all over the globe. To help people create a presence on the web and have a platform to manage their site.
Readily available in 11 languages, the app is designed with translation purposes in mind. And thanks to BabelDif (a translation tool developed alongside SimDif 2), the app can be translated into many different languages.
