What is the history and popularity of the app?

Roxer was founded by Lex Arquette and Jeremiah Grossman in 2008.

What are the differences to other apps?

Because elements are easy to resize and move, each site built with Roxer looks completely unique. This is a definite advantage over those applications with limited themes.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The appeal of Roxer is the ability to create a completely customized site with an intuitive utility. On the whole, it is easy to use, but during testing, it proved difficult to move some elements once they were placed.

Users may create panels with varied colors and textures with a drag and drop interface for page placement. The text utility has only a few fonts and was buggy when attempting to maneuver the text boxes. There are only a few widgets available for use on the pages, including a sticky note graphic, glittery words, and Google Calendar; however users can upload images to use as background panels for variety.

Other than the limited options for widgets and the occasional bug with moving elements, the site is very appealing.

How does the registration process work?

To register, users provide a name for the homepage, password, and email address. Immediately, users are taken to a page that confirms account creation and leads to a tour.

What does it cost to use the application?

Roxer is free for 50 total boxes (page elements) on a site, domain name support, ten pages, and 100K upload size. Power User accounts are available for $7/month and include 2,000 boxes, support, advertising removal, 100 pages, 1MB upload size, the ability to remove Roxer branding, custom HTML, and a free domain name.
