Presskit.to’s Press Kits For Musicians Now Embeddable, Boutique Services Added [Updated]
Presskit.to launched last year offering a hosted web app to create one or more electronic press kits for your band or for special events and releases. They recently announced the first of what they say are a series of upgrades including the ability to embed press kits on other sites. In addition, they've added boutique services for those wanting help from writing bios to press kit management.
[Update: Towards the end of the post I mentioned some future plans for Presskit.to. They have since announced the release of a Facebook App, to add your presskit to your band page, and an integration with Songkick, to make updating the events section a lot easier.]

About – Bio, Members, Press Coverage, Links
Plus, Presskit.to's press kits use responsive design which means they easily adjust to any size screen from desktop to mobile device.
New and Upgraded Features
Recently Presskit.to announced a series of tweaks and upgrades including, most importantly, the ability to embed the web app on any site that accepts HTML:
"Embed your Presskit directly on your website’s Press page or create a Press tab on Facebook."
"People can stay on your site while having full access to the contents of your ‘kit."
"All future updates that you make to your Presskit will automatically show up on your embedded Presskits."
Though Presskit.to still hosts a dedicated page for your press kit, you can now use Presskit.to to do such things as maintain an easily updatable press section on your own site and on Facebook.
Further Updates Ahead
Presskit.to also mentions that there are more updates to follow later this summer. One such update teased in the announcement is a calendar integration with Songkick which adds to the easy updating factor.
In addition, Presskit.to recently introduced Boutique Services from creating your presskit to designing a logo to creating a pitch for the press.
This is a good sign from Presskit.to that they're committed to needed development to make both their press kits and services fit the needs of working musicians.
