Wasted Po

I would have liked to leave a positive review about the app, but when I didn't go forward with using it, far before the free trial (total use time, less than 20 minutes), I deleted the app, only to still see the code on my page. What gives? Also adding that this application, although deleted, somehow altered the code settings on my store, so now I no longer have a neat showcase of my featured collection. Now the images are huge. Very bad.

Hey there,

Sorry to hear you had some problems with uninstalling the app.

There are 2 buttons inside the app for uninstalling and disabling app. The problem with uninstalling app straight from Shopify admin panel is, that in that moment app lose access to your store, and cannot do any operations there. That's why there are buttons inside the app.

Again, sorry to hear you had troubles with it, we will put some warning inside the app, so it's more clear for other customers

Does exactly what I need it to. simple to use and straightforward. could be a little cheaper as it is a very small part of my total store cost
