Airfields , 13 reviews
Heavy using this app for several months now and its very good and helpful. Few observations:
1) Be careful with variable types. When you create some type like boolean and import boolean values to it. When Airfields opens and saves it its suddenly string type with "true/false" value in it. Its a problem because all other values are still boolean.
2) When you have Variant metafield you cant access it when you have product with only one variant. I think there should be both options in the menu "Edit product metafields" and "Edit variant metafields" just like Shopify does it with regular fields.
TIP: Its useful to create Shopify definition for Airfields metafields. So they are accessible directly from product detail. Its not possible with all types though.
All in all we ended up using regular metafields if we can because of that.
Sorry to hear you're having issues with Airfields. We regret not getting a chance to continue the thread through customer support, we didn't receive an answer to our email so we assumed the issue was resolved at the time. Nonetheless, Airfields has been around for a long time and has a large base of satisfied customers. We aim to make our customers' experience as hassle-free as possible when it comes to using our plugin. We have reached out again via email and we will do our best to find the root cause of the issues you are experiencing.
When Shopify reduced the section block limit in themes from 250 to 16, I needed to find a way to build a comprehensive ingredients section that was easy to use. We almost outsourced an app when I happened upon this, seemingly the only app to include something they call a "repeater" meta. Highly recommend! Two things I wish this app did:
1) Allow the image meta to be a complete or similar object type to a traditional Shopify image object. Complete with attributes to the image.
2) Upload to admin. It's possible to upload files to admin using GraphQL, and I'm worried someone on our team may accidentally delete the theme file that hosts our images.
Airfields is a game changer for our store. It drastically expands the capabilities of the CMS system in Shopify and makes it easy for my team to add significantly more content to our page and update it without going into the code. Strongly recommend.
We used Airfields to add on a lot of additional content capabilities to our website. Shopify does not provide variants effectively and this app does it perfectly. A lot of dynamic content is available by each variant on our website, thanks to Airfields. In terms of service, they have always been super efficient and diligent. Recently, we faced a situation where almost all our content had vanished as someone accidentally took off the theme with the Airfields settings. They helped us right away and made sure we were back in order. Seeing the constraints that Shopify gives one for variants, the Airfields app is most promising. The only feature that I still want them to add, which in our case becomes extremely important is a way to save all our data/information in a way we can access it in case we get into this problem again. Other than that, the people at Airfields are super nice and super confident in everything they say and do.
Excellent app. Dramatically expands your website's capabilities to display additional product information, beyond the out-of-the-box product description field, and display custom additional media on site beyond the product image carousel. Full control on a product by product level, and no limit on additional information it can display. Highly recommended when the basic Shopify store capabilities are not sufficient.
I honestly did not know technology could do this type of stuff. I mean, I know cars can almost drive themselves now, but customizing the Shopify CMS has always seemed to require many hours and code and sweat and stress... and then it all breaks. Airfields has made creating and updating complex site customizations SO MUCH EASIER.
Very easy to use. Great app that allows us to more easily customize our site and content. Much better UI than other similar apps we've tried.
An excellent app that allows us to get around Shopify's limitations. We are now able to add a lot of useful info since as variant info tips, dynamic author info, and images etc.. 10/10 would recommend.
Airfields makes it childishly easy to create custom sections for our different product pages and landers. Simple interface, never any problems suiting our needs. Highly recommended for those that love to build.
Great app! Dramatically improved the functionality, design and overall user experience on our site. Allowed us to enable a custom look and feel to our store. Look forward to continuing use and development. Great work, easy to use and I couldn't recommend this app enough!
