“Creating and publishing a super-stylish website using Universe takes all of five minutes. Really.” - Apple

1. “This app is SUPER easy to use and allows you to create a quick site in minutes right from your phone!” - Reviewer DAppSelector
2. "Universe stopped me dead in my tracks of (re)learning WordPress, HTML, CSS, JS, etc. Sure it’s not the first drag and drop website builder, but it’s the first one that totally puts the user in control in a way that is the opposite of frustrating. In fact, it’s actually FUN to use. Like, really actually fun. And you end up with a website after you play around with it. Incredible. - Reviewer Biddhaz
3. “I immediately thought this could act as a modern day business card. Within five minutes, I was able to find a domain, settle on a template, add social media links and publish my site. All from my phone.” - Reviewer R.Runyon

Ratings and Reviews
Game Changing App!! 100% Customer Service too.
First of all the customer service is HANDs down the best and is very refreshing In today’s day in age when that’s unheard of. The developer actually reached out after download to make sure he defined the mission of the company and to make sure happiness was tied to this app. He still reaches out a year later.
When I think about all of the 1000s of
Apps I have downloaded (I’m obsessed with finding the most satisfying for some reason) and have thought “eh, this is good but I’m still waiting”... there’s no app I don’t
credit near as much as I do this one.
For the 1 star reviews, you may to squeeze a little creativity you have and it doesn’t take much with the tools they give you to create an amazing site.
This app helped me gather ALL social media and websites in one hub so I wasn’t all over the place. Still the best app in my opinion!!
If I could give a negative star, I would. This app is a one page site, which is not a website, and you can’t sell anything, so you might as well call it a blog. It had glitches as well. It would freeze up from time to time. I was deceived when I signed up with the app. I didn’t know I was purchasing a domain name, and they purchase a domain through another service. I decided this app was not going to work for me, so now I have to keep my account open with them for one year. They won’t give me access to my own domain that I purchased. I have a shopify store, and need to buy an email with gsuite, but I can’t even do that, because I need to wait for Universe to log into my domain to finish setting it up. I have not heard back from Universe to do so. I am left waiting. Plus any issue I have with my domain. I have to wait for them to fix the problem. I am not that techno friendly, but I am learning as I go, and I pick on things real quickly. Making someone wait when it is something that can be fixed asap is not right. At least respond with questions in order to fix something. Universe fails to do so. Frustrating to say the least. Another day goes by.
It's interesting how some of these reviews sound so well scripted... Kind of shocking how whitty, clever, and so though out they are for something that most people spend all of 5 seconds contemplating before writing.
Now I'm not accusing anyone of anything in particular I wouldn't be too shocked of anything as well...
As for my thoughts on the app itself. It's basically useless as a web design program as it's advertised. Although it may has some potential as a free tool for making working prototypes.
If the developers of this app were smart they would pick up on this and capitalize on this potential rather than focus on actually making websites with it. It's far easier to just use WordPress theme 2015 and be done with it. That being said l definitely don't speak for everyone and some people may actually find it useful for it's presented use case, however I find it to be lacking too much in power for that.
Perhaps in the future once it has more features for power users I will revisit this, but for now I'm going to put it aside.
Good first step. I'm looking forward to it.
