Landing pages are just the beginning.
Originally announced: November 8, 2018
Most recent update: November 13, 2019
We've been hard at work building something we’re incredibly proud of. In January 2019, we released Makeswift, a website builder for ambitious creators, to an early set of alpha testers. Building on the vision we had for Landing Lion, Makeswift is a no-code editor where you can create high quality, custom websites from scratch.
On December 1st, 2018, we shifted our engineering and support resources to Makeswift so that we can continue to create delightful new experiences for our customers. This exciting new product also marked the beginning of some changes for Landing Lion users:
We removed the in-app chat support feature in Landing Lion. While chat support is now unavailable Landing Lion, we do offer chat support on Makeswift and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Email support is available for current Landing Lion customers in a limited capacity. We’re a small team that will be working hard to support all of our customers through this transition. Our response time might be slower than you’re used to but rest assured, we’ll still be here!
We have ceased all engineering work in Landing Lion, including improvements and bug fixes. We’ve been listening to your feedback and Makeswift is going to address many of the issues and feature requests we’ve heard from you. We look forward to working closely with our early Makeswift customers to continue to create the web’s best way to build the web.
We can longer provide support on our integrations outside of what's available in our help center.
Yes. We plan to sunset Landing Lion early in 2020. While we don't have a set date yet for when the product will be turned off, you can expect to hear these details from us soon.
You can for the time being! We will let you know as soon as we have more details on officially sunsetting Landing Lion. Your pages will stay up until we turn off the app and everything will run as usual except for the changes to support mentioned above.
No, you won't lose your content. We are building a Landing Lion to Makeswift migration tool that will allow you to easily move your Landing Lion pages to Makeswift if you choose to switch over.
Recent advancements in web technology have unlocked a whole new set of possibilities. In order to capture our product vision, we need to utilize these new tools. Migrating to these new tools would be a painful process for both our customers and our development team, so we’ve decided to build a new product from the ground up. Once we make it through the transition, we will be able to ship features much more quickly to a product that is unparalleled in quality and speed.
We know, we know, Felix the lion will be sorely missed. While we love the brand we’ve built, the vision for our product has expanded way beyond landing pages. Makeswift represents what makes us unique – the ability to move fast and be creative at the same time.
We're so grateful for your support over the years. If you have more questions about these changes, send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you'll join us in this transition to Makeswift!
