Ratings and Reviews
Useful, but has a bad desing
This application seems very good, but it fails in the design. The design is ugly and you do not want to use it. If you improve the design (please, you have to redesing the folders), and also improve the design of the interface, it would be a 5-star app. Nowadays design is very important, you can not leave it apart.
Developer Response ,
We appreciate your feedback! You can tweak many things in UI to meet your taste: change background or wallpaper, make icons square, make folders translucent etc. Please contact our support if you like to share your thoughts in greater details.
Alloy: useful and effortless
Alloy, in a short time, has become indispensable. Easy to use, a UI that is flexible, a UX that is pleasing; Alloy should rise above other similar apps. Perhaps the best of Alloy is the tech team! They provided a brilliant solution before the app developer had responded to my questions.
Alloy, essential launcher and workflow app, smooth, easy to use and responsive tech support. Some of the best help I have received.
Thank you Alloy team.
An amazing level of functionality
Alloy is a keeper and improve productivity to new levels. I can’t believe I haven’t discovered it earlier.
The depth of possibilities is endless, and it is well thought out by providing all the utility actions to build complex workflows.
Yes it's not easy at first to acclimate to the interface, but it is inversely proportional to its capabilities. A really great job to the developpers!
