About SimDif


The Simple Different Website Builder

The Story of SimDif

Over 10 years ago website builders were created to help people make websites without the need for coding or technical knowledge.

The simplification and good intentions of these tools did not always achieve the desired results and a vast majority of sites were left incomplete. The majority of published sites were not clear enough for their readers and struggled to be visible on Google.

These website builders did not automatically help people to make good websites, in the same way that the invention of word processors did not necessarily make people good writers.

As a result, rather than helping people build well-optimized sites, many of these services were rebuilt around marketing. Most website builders became experts in selling features to their users, suggesting that the qualities of a website come from the ad-ons they could purchase.

Simple Different never gave up on its goal to educate and empower people. In 2010 SimDif was released to the public and in 2012 it became the first website builder app to be available on iOS and Android. The major upgrade SimDif 2 was released in April 2019.

The calling of SimDif was to help users organize the content of their sites in a way that would benefit their audience and to increase their chances of being visible on search engines.

This is still the mission today.

For most, they must use English or another widely used language. Especially those from internet developing countries as there are few or zero online tools in their mother tongue. It is important to reach out to those users and solve this linguistic equation.

One of Simple Different's core values is to respect and promote the rich diversity of the worlds' languages and cultures, before thinking about financial conversion

"Given this app a fair test drive, very impressive. It does just what I expected and it does it well. A very intuitive application. I can see myself going for the pro version eventually but for now the free version is fine. Well done developers."
