Swift is a cool new service that launched today lets you create your own site for the mobile using a easy and simple interface. The service is a site project by Proteo, a subsidiary of UK-based 2ergo. You can check out Rev2’s own Swift page here, preferably with a mobile device.
After signing up, you are taken into the creation process of your first site. Upon specifying a name, description, and some other minor details, you can start building your first page. Basically, a Swift page is a combination of elements. You can add a Site Logo, Headline, Text, Graphic, Extra Space, Link, RSS feed, and Footer to your page. While it’s no drag-and-drop, it’s fun to create something of your own and the interface is still simple enough to use.
There are four basic tabs to the site: Your Pages, Site-Wide Elements, Site Reports, and Site Info. Your Pages displays all your previously created pages, Site-Wide Elements lets you specify general elements for your whole website — such as the logo and the colors — and create new sites, Reports shows you your site statistics and info lets you edit your profile and things such as the description of your site.
A much un-tapped space on the Internet has been mobile, and one which is widely growing. Swift taps into this space and presents a simple web service that even the most average joe will be able to use. For existing site/blog owners, it’s a great way to port your RSS feed and create a mobile version of it’s own — Swift allows you to do that.
