The Liveaps Toolset Comes in Two Versions:
Free Version: The free version offers one page and a liveaps.com domain name. This version would work for someone who just needs a simple site, like a one-page sell site or a simple family page. The free version also has a Liveaps toolbar at the top of the page.
Pro Version: The Pro version is far more useful, with unlimited pages and 2 GB of storage space. Pro page members can use their own domain name for their site and pages can be set to public or private as desired. Small business owners who want to be able to maintain their own websites may find this service useful, especially since Liveaps will copy their existing sites for them and make the live on Liveaps. The Pro version's pricing has yet to be determined.
How It Works
You can start with a unlocked template or a blank page and then began drawing shapes or lines, inserting text, links, pictures, and video all of which can be dragged-and-dropped onto the page. A floating toolbar gives you easy access to create and edit page objects and this toolbar can be moved around your screen while you're working.
Building a Page
Who Is It For?
Of course the ultimate target market is simply anyone who wants to build and maintain their own sites. However, Liveaps will be pushing their free version as a place to build and maintain a central web profile. With a provided template, you can customize your profile page and then link to it instead of your LinkedIn public profile page, for example. This is similar to what NetVibes is doing in their Ginger release with the customizable public profiles they are offering. However, with Liveaps you would not be as limited since you can really design whatever you want. There may be an upcoming contest where users are encouraged to build web profile templates for others to use and prizes for the winners would then be offered.
