I am a designer and have been using Buildify extensively over the last few days. The tool is very intuitive and gives you a great amount of control over your content. Even users with little to no experience in JS/CSS/HTML are able to achieve amazing results. Buildify offers great control over how different viewports handle your content. There's also a great variety of transitions available to make your website less static and actually have it come to life.
I highly recommend using Buildify to build not just amazing content pages, but also give your product pages the neccessary pop. You can also edit collections and even completely redesign the homepage.
Last but not least, the customer service responded very fast and even implemented a custom solution to my problem.

Before downloading Buildify I tried both Hypervisual and Shogun as they were the two tools lots of people were recommending. I'm a Digital marketer who has worked with lots of dev teams and web designers building websites in my day job and also have a fair amount of HTML and CSS experience. So the solution I was looking for needed to allow me to have as much flexibility with customisation as possible.
Hypervisual and Shogun were quite limited in what I could do and wasnt able to have me lay out my pages the way I wanted to. Buildify has been an excellent solution to help me get my site to where I wanted it to be visually as the features and amount of customisability blew both hypervisual and shogun out of the water.
But what really stands out is there support. I have on a few occasions needed custom solutions and I also came across a bug, all the times I contacted customer support they were always able to help find a solution and fix it as well as building custom code for my site to solve my more complex solutions.
The only two concerns I have had with buildify is that pages built on buildify can be a bit slower to load, which isn't ideal for SEO.
Also, the admin section when building pages, can sometimes take a while to load the page. Other than those two things, throwing nothing but praise buildifys way.
I've been looking for a good page editor for Shopify, and have tried quite a few of the most popular ones, most of which have left me disappointed. I have been using Buildify for a few weeks now, and it's flexibility is incredible. We are using it for blog posts, pages, and even our homepage. It possesses just the right amount of WYSIWYG ease with developer level tweaking when needed. Keep it up guys.
Very edgy to work with, the video preview is much smoother than the actual interface once utilizing the app, therefore we are cancelling. Sorry.
Good job guys, I love the new integrated Social Media Feeds
This is a great drag and drop for builder for editing your website and landing pages. Very easy to use and their tech support is fantastic. I have been using buldify on a different website as well

We are loving this app.
Super easy to use and has all the features you could ever want... (Except adding a collection)
It is easy to use and well designed. Ideally more detailed instruction with examples would be suggested. This app really helps store owners like us who do not have a lot of experience with Web design.

Updated: 9/27/17 All issues have been resolved with the app. I was also given a discount for my first billing of the app of 50%.
The app is really awesome when everything is working properly.
Update:9/24/17 The issues I am experiencing.....I have changed my review to 1 star.
1. Keep Getting Emails Stating I have downloaded the app and emails stating that I have uninstalled the app I have not uninstalled the app from my Shopify store.
2. The way the page looks when building it looks different on my website.
3. Have not received extra widget from leaving a 5-star review.
So app says they offer 24/7 support. I have sent several emails with them being responded to every 48 hours. asking me to upload pictures which I have done. One also asked me why I unistalled the app (which I didnt) saying they couldnt find in their database asked for a pic of my apps page showing I still had the app installed which I did now going on 72 hours and no response. Going to give the app maker another 24 hours or will uninstall and move on and my 1 star will stand for this app.
I don't like the fact that you have to give 5-star rating to unlock a feature....
This is really the main con I have. The app is easy to use and has a lot of features, but it could use a few more widgets that other apps have. Trying to build a homepage with this app can be done but the hero frame does not size well.
The price for this app and its features are way lower than other apps. I am using this app to personalize content pages and blogs on my site.
If you want to personalize product slash collection pages this app can do it but you would need to start from scratch as there is not much you can edit on the already created pages within the theme.
Easy to use. More focus to speed (cache / loading times). Would have given four but need extra modal :)
