The overall rating reflects the current state of the app. It accounts for all app reviews but prioritizes the most recent ones.
This app used to work well but since the update to "version 3.0" - it continuously fails. We have to remember to check on it and every time we do, it is not loading on out of stock products - the developer has to go in and change something but never explains what and never makes a permanent fix. It seems they have introduced a recurring catastrophic error and are unable to fix it. The best answer we have had is "It is a coding issue, I have fixed it" - but then it breaks again a few weeks later.

Low stock alert didnt work properly, lack of support to fix it. Which is too bad because the now in stock notification part of it was pretty decent. 4 stars for the now in stock notification, 1 star for the low stock alert and 1 star for support
Stitches And Stones Kc
It worked fine for a while, but I noticed that recently it stopped working. When the page first loads you can see the sign up form to receive an email on an out of stock item, but the sign up form vanishes almost instantly. This renders the app useless if people cannot sign up. I'm dropping this app. There is no point in spending $3 a month for something that does not work properly.

App is functional, but doesn't handle variants very gracefully. Can't set quantity thresholds for firing emails (e.g. more than 1 should be restocked before it sends emails). Support is non-existent. Each of those issues is worth a star.
Asthmatic Kitty Records
Didn't work but needed something quickly. Form would appear on product page but then disappear.
