PROS / Its tutorials walk you through account set up and help resolve any concerns.
CONS / The templates are very basic in terms of style.
VERDICT / As an all-around mobile-website creator, MoFuse is worth a second look.
MoFuse uses a comprehensive system to aid you with mobile-website design. It has quality layouts, image galleries and icons. These features can help you build a mobile site that fits your needs and boosts your business potential. In addition to these useful tools, quality product support helps to make MoFuse a mobile-web builder that is better than most services, but it still sits just outside the top tier.
Using MoFuse, your customers can view your mobile site on almost any smartphone. This mobile-website builder offers full support for iOS and Android devices. It also supports the HTML5 infrastructure, which helps you reach customers that use Windows Phone or BlackBerry devices. While that compatibility should be standard across the board, other services showed image distortion when converting. MoFuse provided the same quality across every mobile device.
As you start to build your mobile website, there are templates that give you a running start. The templates are limited in terms of style and rely more on the placement of your widgets. The widgets found in MoFuse enable you to market a professional product. Once you've selected from one of five templates, you can add features to your mobile site. MoFuse takes a hit for having so few templates. In terms of theme selection, this service ranks near the bottom of the list. It does allow you to create over 10 pages with contact information, lead-capture forms and mobile coupons. The number of pages it allows you to create is above average compared to its competitors.
MoFuse's mobile-website builder covers all the basic and important features. You can add basic options, such as an About Us section. There are also features to add social media integration. Your customers can click the links and be directly connected to your Facebook or Twitter pages.
This mobile-site builder also has the option to connect your customers to a phone call or map directions with a single click. Rather than copying and pasting phone numbers and addresses, a simple click suffices to complete these tasks. These standard features are just some of the options to help potential customers connect directly to your business.
While the ease with which a mobile site can be created is impressive, the layouts and color schemes are unimpressive compared to some of the higher-ranked services we reviewed. You can assign tabs to pages and phone numbers, but it seems the service is built create more of a basic landing page than a dynamic mobile website. This service is also missing features like an interactive event creator, which automatically synchronizes events to phone calendars.
The support options for this mobile-site builder lean towards the positive, with a few drawbacks. You can call or email support with any concerns, but it is only available weekdays during business hours. There is also no option for immediate live chat. However, we found the answer to every question we had in the tutorials, whether it was an issue with site creation, adding an RSS feed or using SEO keywords.
MoFuse is a very useful mobile-website builder for small businesses. It ranks among the best services in the industry for the focus on the mobile-site creator. The template selection is paltry, but it can help connect potential customers to your business through a medium that grows more popular every day. The basic and advanced features make it an attractive option.
