I did significant research on different filter apps and landed on this one. The presentation looks very organized and the search function is a very pleasant. Photos are shown in the search function making it much easier for the customer to find their product. I would consider a great value for the improved experience it brings to the customers.
For this app, if you want the collection pages to also have the filtering feature, you can have the programmer go in and set it up for you. Since the 4 products per row was a bit small for the products that I sell (I need them to be bigger since my products have intricate artwork that would be missed at a smaller picture size), I was able to request the programmer to update it to show only 2 products per row. The programmer is very knowledgeable so it only takes them around 15-20 minuets to get it all set up. Now my collection pages look significantly better than before I installed this app.
The only improvement I would say for this app is to improve compatibility over more browsers. Majority of my customers are coming from Google Chrome (mobile & desktop) and Safari. If they use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge, the filters on my collection pages don't render properly and the product titles are sliced up. It hasn't been a major issue for me since very few people nowadays use those browsers but still would like to see that corrected in the future. Other thing I would mention is if you have other apps that impact the collection page, you should test out to see if this app will be compatible with it. I noticed that there are certain apps such as apps that add labels (i.e. "sale") over collection page photos, aren't always compatible with this filtering; for example, I was testing one that the labels would not line up with the photo properly.
Overall, was a worth it to incorporate into my store. I do believe that it has positively impacted my conversions.
Hi UrushiPen.com, Thanks for your comment, we already implemented a new version and the application already works in all browsers, we are improving every day.
So far so good. My only concern is that the product filters only appear after performing a search but I need something which displays the filters without having to do a search. I have tried to contact the company / developers via an online form on shopify but I keep getting errors.
We made all the changes you requested, please check your SPAM tray, apparently our emails are not coming to you :)

The app doesn't integrate perfectly with my theme due to a central screen search bar embedded in my purchased theme but the support is great and they've helped me get it looking good and functioning great!

Just started this. The default search for my store (debut theme) was seriously lacking and I was seriously disappointed in that feature. This app definitely changes the way the search functions and if someone is searching out something specific this seems to find everything I can think of searching out on my store and I can not see the reason a customer leaves the store because they could not find something a reason for not purchasing anymore. Well worth the monthly fee. 500+ product store, many variations, within approx a dozen collections.
