Ratings and Reviews
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!
Too difficult to use
I used to program computers for a living for a few decades and I find I cannot navigate the actions to learn how to modify them (say, to change the clock from Cupertino to my home location, or to change a stock quote from Microsoft to some other stock) or create my own actions.
A detailed tutorial of these subjects would go a long way to making it usable to non-programmers. Video tutorials would be another way to go.
