Review Duda Mobile

Today we look at Duda Mobile, which allows you to create custom mobile websites. When you visit the site, you'll see a field where you can enter an existing site which Duda Mobile will convert into a mobile site.



I used my portfolio site: http://NathanSegal.org for this process. This site was created using OptimizePress, which I've written about in other articles.

When I entered my site onto the main Duda webpage, this is what was created. One of the first things I noticed about this layout is while there were a number of configuration options, I didn't see anything in the way of instructions, to show me what to do.

A couple of days later, I launched the Duda Mobile website and was presented with the screen above. I chose to use the new site builder and it took me to a screen similar to the one I'd seen the first time around. And here, I encountered the same problem. Very little text to show me what to do.

As a case in point, I tried to move the block of text below the photo in the section above, but no matter what  I did, it didn't work.


I decided to choose another approach. Since I'd created a free account, I opened it to see if I could get a better result. Unfortunately when I did so, I found the same interface as far as I could tell and the same lack of instructions on what to do.
