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.
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.

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.
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
