Squarespace is a great website builder for those of us who don’t have the time to either code our own websites or simply don’t know how. I’ve used it for both my personal blog and my professional site, and I’m largely happy with it. (Once I find time, I’ll be hand coding my own professional site, but that’s not because Squarespace isn’t adequate. It’s because I want to code it when I can find the time, simply for the joy of coding.)
That being said, anybody who uses Squarespace knows that it was a giant pain to post anything to your site from your iPhone or iPad. Unlike CMS like Tumblr or WordPress, Squarespace’s older apps were massively inconvenient. They didn’t allow you to edit any posts that had images, and you couldn’t write in Markdown or do any layout work. With Squarespace Blog, that all changes.

I’ve made it no secret that I’m a fan of Squarespace. In fact, my personal blog runs on the service and I’ve somewhat brazenly said that the folks at Squarespace and I share the same taste for good design. That’s one of the many reasons I was interested in the Squarespace Note app.
My history with note taking on the iPhone is all over the place. I don’t use the stock Notes app anymore because I hate yellow notepad paper, but iOS 7 could change that. I love Simplenote right now, which sits on my homescreen and is used almost every day. Evernote is okay, but I feel like it’s gotten slower and more laborious to use with time. I use Day One for journalling and Byword for Web articles, but I’ve been all over the place. Squarespace Note is supposed to make my life a little easier by hopefully filling in a few of these blanks at once.
Note-taking apps for the iPhone are hardly scarce, with many third-party options available for a device that ships with a stock Notes app fully integrated into it’s own cloud-based sync services. While Squarespace is best known as a blogging platform, the company recently pushed out a note-taking app of their own, Squarespace Note.
Squarespace Note is a minimalist note-taking app that syncs your textual memos with a variety of services including Squarespace itself, Evernote and Dropbox. It’s advertised not as an independent note-taking app, but rather a proxy for your other subscribed services. (more…)
Starting a blog or website can be difficult. There are seemingly countless options for where to host your site, what kind of publishing system you should use, how you’ll get things to the site; the amount of options can be freeing but also paralyzing, as it’s hard to find one that will work “just right” for what you have in mind.
Enter Squarespace. Squarespace is a hosting and publishing system designed to make running a weblog or website incredibly easy. Outside of being such a well-integrated service, the part of the deal that really sweetened the pot for me was the fact that they had a native iPhone app, titled appropriately enough, Squarespace. Read on to find out why this was such a big deal!
