Karelia Software's Sandvox now in Mac App Store

Powerful, Flexible App Helps Mac Users Create Websites Easily

Alameda, Calif. - Oct. 12, 2011 - Karelia Software today announced that Sandvox is now available in the Mac App Store. Sandvox empowers anybody, even non-experts, to create a website with a contemporary look and modern features, in minutes.

Sandvox 2.1.10, also released today, adds a new Blueprint design, and builds on the new SFTP publishing system recently introduced, with new WebDAV and MobileMe publishing subsystems.

Sandvox is the only website builder on the Mac that lets anyone drag and drop content, add modern features in a few clicks, and see exactly what it looks like right on the screen, even before hitting publish. Sites created using Sandvox automatically comply with the latest HTML5 web standard, and can be seen on modern mobile devices. Once finished, users can upload their site to their favorite host directly from within Sandvox.

Recently released, Sandvox 2 introduced a completely new architecture and new editing engine, which allows customers to mix and match web page content "objects" in a much more naturally expressive and creative way. Sandvox 2 also introduced a new design chooser and a much more powerful Inspector that makes it easy to selectively adjust page layout, modify objects, and apply modern page features. Sandvox includes the latest version of the Karelia iMedia Browser, an open source contribution which is now a staple in many popular Mac apps.

For the power user, a new Raw HTML object handles direct placement, including live resizing, of any HTML, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP or other inserted web code, such as popular embed codes provided by other sites. New plug-ins provide support for Facebook and Twitter. In addition, a plug-in API is now available for third-party developers.
