SnapPages: Can never beat Squarespace?

I noticed that Jason Kincaid from TechCrunch blogged about SnapPages earlier today, a startup company that recently took part in TechCrunch50 DemoPit (Conference 2008) technology conference. The thing that caught my attention was his blog post title; “…That Apple Should Envy (Or Buy)”. What was that all about?!

Now, what is so special about SnapPages anyway? It is just another online drag-and-drop website creation tool and we already have a lot of those these days.
SnapPages™ takes online website creation to a whole new level. Now anyone can create and manage a professional quality website with drag-and-drop simplicity. Not only is it fun and easy, with SnapPages you'll end up with a great looking website that you can be proud of.

I don’t know about you but I think Squarespace is much better than SnapPages!

I found squarespace a little harder to use

That sounds strangely similar to the guy 5 years ago that said, whats the big deal with the iPod--i can do all this already with my Rio. It's because we now know it's all about ease of use and design. The reason SnapPages is unique is that (from my experience) 1) Its simple 2) It's design-conscious. They nearly don't "allow" you to build an ugly site 3) It's free, for the most part 4) It's more social. (Calendars, Friends, etc) and 5) It's designed for those out there that need a simple and quick web site. But I'm not even sure I'd compare the two more than I'd compare a microwave to an oven. It's not a zero-sum thing.

I've been a Squarespace user for several months now, and always considered it fairly straightforward to use. That being said, it does require a little bit of computer know-how. I can see the value of SnapPages, for a certain market segment. I am sure they won't be the only company to develop this drag and drop usability. The bottom line is that it is the content ON the site that is most important, so why not make laying out the site a relatively simple and painles process? As long as the user retains the ability to create the content in the manner they choose, that is.
