Hey developer, I could not find out how to SELL things on this app. If you see this PLEASE tell me how?

Universe is amazing
by erc eld on 2021/10/05 16:10
This app is the best website creator you can find. I am a designer who has used Squarespace, Cargo Collective, and even Tumblr to try and host a portfolio, and none have come even close to what I’ve been able to do in universe. A few complaints: I wish it were easier to cut/copy/paste blocks, there is no undo/redo, and no support for any fonts other than the ones it comes with. Google fonts would be nice, user fonts would be even better! Also the mac app is very laggy, even on M1 models. But for real, I can’t recommend Universe enough. Give it a shot.
I can’t use universe?
by LostWrlds on 2021/09/28 20:37
So I love it but I could only use it once after I tryed to go back in it wouldn’t let me it was just a retry button I kept trying but nothing it’s so sad cause I like the app and now I have a thing for making websites But can’t cause the app has me locked out of it please help dev don’t give me a lame response

I am new at this online begginer buisness thing and this website made it super easy to start something . I did pay for 1 yr of service because the pro settings offered more help. so far So good :)
I dont recommand it at all !
by Laura botbol on 2021/09/20 19:34
i purschased it because i saw the reviews but dont trust them ! its really not for you if you are looking to create a website for computer ! its "okay" for cellphone... you need to have everything on your library, you dont have acces to the picture on your desktop... really really upset about this purschase. you have only 3 days if you want to test it.. to late for me, i was thinking i didnt know how to use it so the time a watch youtube video and make internet research.. the delay was expired. DONT BUY IT
Customer Service nonexistant
by Skottii on 2021/09/15 22:50
The graph that shows website traffic is often broken and impossible to use. Customer support shows absolutely no awareness when it comes to this recurring issue, and it is a battle to get the data that I need. I do NOT recommend this app.
-5 stars
by someone random i guess on 2021/09/15 00:34
If I could rate this a -5 star I would I receive plenty of orders and receive money and I also bout the 2 day payout I have yet to receive any money it do not have any payout button and I’ve waited 3 weeks to receive my money so I will not be using this app bye
Fun but limited

ok but editing is bad
by xxsky.ii on 2021/09/12 08:11
I always mistake the trash button for deleting the text, this needs an undo and redo button, pinching is so hard, and it doesn’t save!! please fix this
I don’t have a log in option. Why is that?

Great app. Some bugs and suggestions.
by ShiningLikeTheSun on 2021/09/07 05:11
It has its downsides, but I really appreciate having this option, and the builders’ commitment to listening to feedback and making a better app. That being said, a recent bug that’s been happening is I publish the website, and then when I open it, all the spacing looks different. I think it’s been happening since they introduced block-layering (which I LOVE, btw). Would still love to see custom colors as an option—hex code, eye dropper… maybe a gradient). That would be AMAZING. Also optional margins for the edges of the website or for blocks? Text wrapping around objects would be fantastic. Again, love what y’all are doing.
great but not on mac
by sbrai777 on 2021/09/06 22:56
for some reason the mac version is kind of laggy and has a weird format BUT on iphone or ipad it's really easy to make a website with still looking professional. and you can still do most things without premium which is nice. overall i love this app but it is difficult to use on mac. i would also like to add that the new update where the grid controls are grouped in the corner is Very inconvenient and annoying and it was much better before :/
Incredible! When I was able to use it.
by Mr.Popcorn91 on 2021/09/05 15:30
It was an amazing and incredibly beautiful website builder but now when I try to sign in or sign up, it does not seem to work. It keeps on saying error code. I don’t know how to fix this. Now I have to use MailChimp. Anyways, Could you please, please fix this issue.
BEST APP! Just a few things I would like them to add.
by OneShot316 on 2021/09/01 23:31
If you are looking to build a website/app, this is PERFECT. You might think you can only build website’s and not apps but you can click the share website button and click add to Home Screen! There its an app and web! You can do EVERYTHING on this website. There is just 1 question I’d like to ask the developer of this app. I would really like if you can make a monthly subscription where you pay monthly for example, paying monthly for email updates, paying monthly to access files and stuff like that. Otherwise, this app is the “BEST” at making website’s. Thank you universe!
Paid for premium but can’t use premium features
by O. just O. on 2021/09/01 21:59
This is why I normally pay a month at a time for subscriptions. I figured, why not go all in on a year for this app? The price difference was enough to convince me. Then when it came time to register my domain, I get a generic error telling me to reach out to support. I try to do that in the app, and it gives me the SAME generic error. I’m now losing time on the subscription I spent a whole lot of money on because it doesn’t work. Edit: customer service is trash, this service is trash. They will not offer ANY sort of recourse for this inconvenience that I had to solve by myself because support was absolutely useless. I honestly feel taken advantage of and will be contacting Apple for a full refund.
Nothing is perfect.
by Drewsiferxxx on 2021/09/01 00:10
Except for this app’s customer service department. I loved this app. Really loved it. An update came an threatened to ruin it all. Preview cards stopped working. So here’s the thing. I went to the help desk and actually got help. From calm reasonable folks who genuinely wanted to help me. Braley took a declining situation and turned it into a win in the end. Guess what. I don’t have to say “loved.” They fixed things and rewarded me for my patience and troubles. Very good work. Been a customer for a few years and will definitely stick around. Awesome app A+ service!

Love it but…
by MrsShannon8082 on 2021/08/30 03:56
Love it mostly. Easy for beginners. I do wish there was a way to automatically add applicable taxes and S&H to all orders. Also, a way to search through items, both as I’m building as well as for the customer using the site.
Excellent
by Wakingbucket1994 on 2021/08/19 15:58
Universe has been the best website building experience for my small business. My two favorite things (as a Universe Pro) member: Accessibility / Interface: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Easily edit or update any aspect of your site from your phone or laptop seamlessly. This, in my opinion, is the #1 core competency of Universe—and something they do better than any competitor. Service / Support: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Quick to respond, happy to help, and knowledgeable on what the heck to do. Simple as that.
Transaction fees
by Chipmunk Wolf on 2021/08/19 00:36
Seemed to good to be true. There is a montly subscription and they take 10%. Yes 10% of every transaction you make.
Super Easy To Use
by cakeseance on 2021/08/16 17:46
The UI of this app is extremely straightforward, easy to learn, and beautifully designed. All around, its very easy and efficient to use and makes building websites a much less daughting process. I switch between building on my iphone and my mac, and i wish that there was a way to add photos from your desktop on mac as well as directly from the photos app.

This is a great app I looked for apps to help me make something like this nothing but this bc from what I did it works great and I got no ads so Thxs for making this a app
Wow! So easy to create!!!
by Eric Dat Nguyen on 2021/08/06 15:38
Before I found this app, I worked on other apps such as html coding apps. When i found this app, I knew we don’t have to write code!
A great website builder
by Bobby_MoJ on 2021/08/04 18:15
So far, for 0$, I have downloaded this app and built a very simple basic website for my Musician Page. People have visited my site and now I have something to actually market and talk about now!! Seriously considering now buying the lifetime website outright, as a place to showcase my music. The only thing that would upset that plan, is the obsolescence of the internet itself, which is bound to happen!! Even if the new MetaVerse (imagine a VR internet V2.0) came into existence within 10-15 years, I think the old internet and this website would still be viable. But maybe Universe Developers should look into that, it’s the next big thing ;)
Wow
by ElzzuP143 on 2021/08/02 18:52
I love this app and I continue to grow with it and experience new capabilitites and tabs, this app is smooth and very easy to navigate. Ive been using this to build my main website and some sister sites and its going really well!

Fraud Charges
by The Upcomer on 2021/07/16 20:12
I was trying this app out and it seemed pretty basic and limited so the app offered a trial premium period. So last night I tried the trial and was wondering if I may like it more, well I wake up and have a charge in my Apple Purchases of$129 and that is not okay. I don't know why trail subscription make companies think they can just go ahead and charge you the moment you opt in but I will be disputing this big time.
Good Concept, Horrible Execution
by raygood on 2021/07/16 01:53
Not worth your time or effort. Better results, scratch that. Far better results are easy using alternative methods. Blocks should stay in Kindergarten where they belong.
Won’t open on my iPad
by shjon1000 on 2021/07/09 00:11
This app looks very interesting but will not open. When I try it only shows the opening logo and then crashes. Any help would be appreciated.
I WAS loving it until….
by sweet&sours on 2021/07/06 23:18
Okay…updating this to say I still love it. Here’s the catch. It had logged me out. I tried to log back in, and that apparently wasn’t what I signed up with. Long story short I had to set up a new free account only to log out - so it would bring me to a log in screen (instead of being stuck in a set up loop), so I could sign in with the appropriate log in. In the end, I had to set up a third website for a podcast I’m starting anyways. The founder himself got back to me and sent someone from the company to reach out directly. I’d say that’s great customer service. So the five stars stay put! Thanks, Joe! You made it a great experience.
Love it
by gabjbr on 2021/07/06 13:18
Just love that I can work on my site on my phone, iPad and laptop.
WORST APP EVER

by Miashka D on 2021/07/01 22:15
I thought it was too good to be true… and it was. You get to the point where you choose the template for the website, after (of course!) you have given your information, only to be told that you have to pay. NO FREE OPTION. I mean I get you made the app to get rich maybe but come on, $500 for an”lifetime” membership?? I’ll stick to my desktop. I guess human courtesy is out of the question. Thanks!
The way shipping works on here is just draining
by melleemakesthings on 2021/07/01 06:54
I love this app, it has helped me expand my business loads and I’ve even been featured on your Instagram before, but I’m practically begging y’all at this point to add a feature where people can pay for shipping when they purchase something. I’m also begging you even harder to find a way to allow mass printing of shipping labels because going through 170 orders and single handedly filling out the weight for the same item for a different order every single time leads me to burnout. It would be so easy if the weight of the items was already coded in when I list it to be paid for. I just sat down for 2 hours making/printing shipping labels and it’s making me want to just switch to Shopify or go back to Depop since their labels are premade.
Ripoff

CANT EVEN LOG INTO MY ACCOUNT
by Neiyababydoll on 2021/06/19 21:53

Please allow text to be justified
by NARD BRUH! on 2021/06/16 14:50
I like this app because it’s simple and easy. The blocks are plenty enough to get by and I would request 2 features: 1. Allow text to be justified. 2. Allow the repositioning of images inside of a block. Notion allows this very easily and I think it would be a game changer. Instead of guessing the right size/cropping with another app, repositioning would solve this Instantly! Hope you guys see this
Amazing!!!
by rishito on 2021/06/16 10:46

by vingameing931 on 2021/06/07 17:54
You should put the pro on 9.99$ dollars because I can’t even make a website because it cost 2.099$which is a lot🥺😭😢
mac version needs work
by Jmaeby on 2021/06/07 10:01
works great on my ipad, with the exception of being able to find a few functions such as basic navigation around the interface. the mac version doesnt seem to be able to fluidly allow you to jump between pages and easily efit what you want. im not sure if at the PRO level they get rid of the lags and crippledness, but overall there are a lot of possibilities that can be done with this. definiteylw orth the buy especially when you're under a little but of a time crunch
Digital handcuffs -- Awful to use
by Geahk on 2021/06/04 23:35
Universe is frankly AWFUL. it feels clunky and restrictive. Even the most basic website builders don't feel THIS limiting. Terribly uncreative and a pain to use. I've been using the app to build a new portfolio site for a couple months. Normally, when I'm critical of an app I begin to appreciate it subtleties after a working with it a while. My criticism softens. not with Universe. It only gets worse the longer I use it. New features come slow. Useful features disappear with updates. Don't expect to be able to insert transparent-background pngs or TIFFs! You get white or black backgrounds and that it! The app just made it introduction recently and it already feels ten years out of date.
Your App helped my Label
by Jay Angel Latigo on 2021/06/03 00:33

Pro
by gtselios on 2021/05/26 20:23
I bought pro subscription and I keep having to restore it and it never works. I’ve had support fix this once and it fixed but now I don’t have pro subscription again. Great idea bad execution
High hopes but not worth the money
by VermontDan on 2021/05/26 17:31
I had high hopes when this launched. However, after comparing with Squarespace it is no where near as powerful nor as beautiful and it’s not expensive. There is still opportunity for a startup to disrupt the leaders but this ain’t it.
Easy to use and great support
by gowoncrunchy on 2021/05/18 23:08
I made my own website from scratch, and decided to redo it in Universe, and it was so much prettier and easier 😳 I use it for my twitter bio and it basically has everything I'd want to make a website. Support was also really kind and understanding 😊 it's what caused me to go and rate this app.
Sign in missing
by Kdfits on 2021/05/17 13:41
Purchased the premium version. The app itself works well. However signing into the app is different story. I was auto signed out by the app, and finding a sign in or log in is virtually not there. That being said. I can’t even sign into my own site and edit because there is nowhere to log in, no customer service to call. If the makers read this PLEASE let me know where the sign in is, I don’t have the option to sign into my own site.
Greatest and easiest Web App in the world!
by Ab23abz on 2021/05/09 17:27

LOVE, LOVE THIS APP! Best since iWeb
by Feminomena on 2021/04/27 22:42
At first, I thought you could only use this if you bought a domain name. I was totally wrong. You can redirect your domains to reroute to this one. Designing is a breeze. You will end up with really modern and beautiful website with this app. If you are selling, this is definitely the way to go, but you will need to go premium.
I love it but have a request
by Andrew Skells on 2021/04/26 22:06
This app is amazing and it’s making my roving life a lot easier to blog with! That being said, I love the contact function but I would also like the ability to implement a “comment” section on the website as well. Is that possibly in the works?
Mind Blowing
by theedivinemisswanda on 2021/04/21 10:49
Just from the description alone is mind blowing. This is a game changer! Could possibly be website building for dummies!Even though I don’t know a thang about coding this makes me wanna learn.
Great App but missing some features
by FR_GY on 2021/04/21 06:46
I really want to move away from Wordpress and medium as a form of blogging or my podcast and I am super leaning into this app. It’s easy to use, easy to set up, easy to edit. The only drawback is it doesn’t have a way to embed podcast files or a quick way to write a blog and post it without having to make the page multiple times. Once this app has that, I will totally switch
Great app! Easy to use
by ineverleavereviewsever on 2021/04/19 01:48
I never leave reviews but I had to cause this app is the easiest thing for me as an artist to use. I just wanna be able to share my content quickly and I want it to be aesthetically pleasing. This app makes that possible!
Web design for everyone
by illuminadam on 2021/04/16 23:38
Coming from a UX perspective, this app has everything one could possible need to dream, build, update, and maintain a site. It's really empowering, thoughtful, and most importantly powerful. I can't praise it enough.

Ok, I don’t usually rate apps, but this is actually amazing. Before using this app, I had to make two other websites for a class. They took HOURS, but on this app, it can literally take SECONDS. I’m super impressed, and I think I might actually get the subscription!

If you say you have no idea about web development but you still want to make one for yourself and you want to do it, Bruh I don’t know if there’s any other app better than this. Just love it. Even with the free version you can do more than enough. It’s just that it’s a little bit expensive for premium features. 😬

addicted to making websites

i am obsessed with this app!!! I literally make websites for anything!! best app ever 5 stars
I don’t recommend it.
by chuy21jezzy on 2021/03/11 04:37
I don’t recommend it because it does no have the ability like a real website. And if you create a domain and want it to take out or transfer your domain they won’t let you or support will tell that they are working on it but never really do anything. Don’t wasted your time .
cant believe this
by Jovany Corona on 2021/03/10 04:08
i just got done writing my very first blog and this app just froze on me. i lost eveything i had . i cant believe this. why is that ? i dont know . they need to do something about that ASAP. It happened while i was trying to add a product . This isnt the first time the app acted laggy but its the first time i couldnt do anything on it.
What’s the point of a background? (Fixed)
by Yuahde on 2021/03/10 02:16
The background feature is useless. Only you in the editor can see it. Open up the site on any browser. No background just blank white. Then we have the images, they have an action feature. Doesn’t work. I have a valid web page linked and it does nothing. It doesn’t even register being clicked or tapped. Edit: this was fixed after an update and hasn’t come up since. Definitely a good app for people who don’t have experience with html or have experience with html and know how long and boring things like that are.
What happened
by ugoufydydiydiydydif on 2021/03/09 00:00
Everything was going great but I went too the app and somehow had gotten logged out of my account and NOW there’s no option to log in only to build another site. My site is still accessible because it’s still there. What happened why isn’t there better support. I can’t get an actual person on the help line this is crazy!
Good, but needs a few tweaks
by YoChuckDAmongUs on 2021/03/08 20:41
First of all let me say that this is actually 4.5 stars. They just don’t have an option for 4.5 stars. but anyway, this app is amazing and even though it has some Internet problems it is still worth every penny. There’s just one thing though, when you try to download a song, you get denied from the file first thing.I don’t know if it’s just an Internet problem but it really needs to be fixed.
Love it, and the support is absolutely amazing!
by Peelage on 2021/03/08 00:56
Being this is a startup I appreciate their dedication to supporting customers. I’m in the process of becoming a lifetime subscriber to maintain my DJ business. It is very easy to use and I look forward to some of the advanced features. I look forward to future updates and the ability to use this software on the Mac Mini M1!! Thank you for coming out with this app, it’s perfect!

They allow us to be very flexible I’m the type that loves to create new content and this app allows me to do whatever I want. I’ll pay whoever doesn’t like this app
Really awesome app!

Not working at all
by Jewelskas on 2021/03/01 19:11
Featured app and developer in the App Store today so I was excited to try this but not working at all for some reason. Bummer dude!

Subscription based plan
by Jajdkwoqkxposhnn on 2021/02/26 17:46
Hello i notice you only work better for physical and digital products, how about you guys try to integrate a subscription based payment plan... I have not paid for the pro because you lack that feature

I already tried this for a day it’s really really good help me boost my channel a lot I was was really really nice about it and I like to put in a little music videos are there some people probably don’t even go in there all the people but I still love this
Great website
by Aidenthecoolkid❌❌❌ on 2021/02/17 14:28
Yeah you can make a website and all that but isn’t there supposed to be more then that ? Like I want to make a game but there is no code for it so there should be more codes by the way love your website maker I want to know what my website is called how do I even name my website!READ THIS!
Great platform but needs some work
by sabinepitbull on 2021/02/13 23:46
This app makes it SO EASY to make a website. It’s exactly what I was looking for and I love the block layout. Except it keeps crashing!!! I’ll spend half an hour working on my page and then it just crashes and I have to start over. I’ve gotten into the habit of saving every few minutes to avoid losing work... please fix this!!!
Love it!
by GlamaGirl27 on 2018/09/04 00:54
I just love this.. first of all, for myself anyway I found it very simple to use and create... I already have a website, but I loveeee clickable linked pix and graphics! So I basically just created what I consider to be a Virtual Business Card, each image is a link to my everything! A) my regular domain, my Phone, Email.. Photo Links to my socials, FB, IG, Twitter (2 Of each! 🤦🏻‍♀️, so it should make sense why this is so awesome for me.. links to my Snapchat too! I’m really impressed with it.. I do Social media marketing and some of the clients can’t afford a new website and maintain it and all of that.. so I’ve recommended this to quite a few.. a friend of mine is a realtor and I had her do this.. she’s not the savviest with this kind of thing but she still made one, I made a list of things for her to change but even what she put together is good enough and is everything if she wants to be successful.. I also really like that it’s more than just a stand-alone site.. it’s also a community.. which is additional exposure.. and starting off.. you can use all you can get! 5 Stars For Sure.. Totally Recommend This!
Ryder Cash media ”The Ryder Cash story”
by Silk chamberlin on 2020/06/26 15:08
This is the best app to build your website, company, brand, or whatever you want it to be. Especially if you don't know anything about developing a website. This is not only the easiest and fastest way to build a website, it's the best overall app! I was super duper skeptical at first. It sounded to good to be true. I'm glad I was wrong! This app is the truth; ”the people app.” I never expected to also learn as much as I have about computer tech and codes. It's helped me build a couple Facebook business apps and discover a whole new world I never thought was possible. I started my website to address a social injustice involving my 5 month old African American son. Soon I realized I wanted to start a multi media company. To help give others a voice that could be heard. I started Ryder Cash Media named after my son. There's is not enough time for me to tell you everything I love about this app. Shoot for the moon! If you miss, you still amongst those stars.. this is “The Ryder Cash story”. UNIVERSE
Simply Amazing
by Asassypoet on 2019/09/15 21:03
I just have one problem when I go in to add a gif & save it. It creates this big gap between the gif & the next item I add. It’s annoying because I’m trying to get a certain look & that’s messing up the flow of my site. I do absolutely love the app & all the features! I definitely plan to stay with you all & recommend you all to everyone I know! I just need that one thing fixed! Please & thank you 🙏 😊 Update: Developer responded to this review & I was informed to reach out to the Help desk for help. They responded promptly and my problem was resolved! I love the new update where you can embed a playlist! Super cool! This is the BEST WEBSITE Builder I have ever used! I’m excited to watch what else they had! I do wish there was a way you could save blog post for later to edit!
Ahead of its time. But let’s talk about cost.
by ZeeMade on 2020/10/02 01:57
I’ll start off by saying WOW. It’s brilliant. The features are out of this world. I’ll be reviewing this from a small business standpoint. I sell B2C and my products are very personalized and I’ve found ways to do just about everything I set out to. It holds close to these huge platforms like Shopify and BigCommerce. Apps would be nice. I see some huge potential if integrations become a thing here. I am honestly beyond stunned at the ease of adding and editing your context. It’s mind blowing how simple it is to do something on this app that take some time in others. The only reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars is because I can’t use this app for my online store....(insert sad face here) after doing the math I just can’t pay 10% of my transactions to any platform. It’s a LOT compared to others. Super bummed about it. They do have options for cash app and PayPal...which is epic...but it takes away from the professional element in how I envision check out to feel for my clients. Hopefully one day things will change. Until then... 👋
Deceived
by Cas&Kitty on 2018/05/07 23:56
If I could give a negative star, I would. This app is a one page site, which is not a website, and you can’t sell anything, so you might as well call it a blog. It had glitches as well. It would freeze up from time to time. I was deceived when I signed up with the app. I didn’t know I was purchasing a domain name, and they purchase a domain through another service. I decided this app was not going to work for me, so now I have to keep my account open with them for one year. They won’t give me access to my own domain that I purchased. I have a shopify store, and need to buy an email with gsuite, but I can’t even do that, because I need to wait for Universe to log into my domain to finish setting it up. I have not heard back from Universe to do so. I am left waiting. Plus any issue I have with my domain. I have to wait for them to fix the problem. I am not that techno friendly, but I am learning as I go, and I pick on things real quickly. Making someone wait when it is something that can be fixed asap is not right. At least respond with questions in order to fix something. Universe fails to do so. Frustrating to say the least. Another day goes by.
Incredibly simple and beautiful
by aberrantartist on 2019/05/10 17:08
The tools Universe has make it simple and fun for anyone to build a website. It has been incredibly well designed and has a very nice interface with easy to follow instructions and concepts. I think that design and development are moving to more things like this in which we can create more naturally without needing to learn skills such as coding. Don’t get me wrong, coding is very helpful and I have been learning it for the past year, but the more we can move past it and make the computer work for us instead of us needing to work according to the computer, the better computing will become. There is a lot more that could be done with Universe however. It is still fairly restricted since you have to rely on the grid and their preset colors and options. This can certainly be a good thing for people who want that simplicity, but for people that are looking for more, there could be greater customization.
Views and Subscriptions
by Beautiful80 on 2020/11/10 08:56
I love this app but please fix the bug that limits the amount of views you see per day. I have this app linked to a huge platform I have online and the app views never match the actual views that the website is getting. It shows a number way lower than your actual views. Also please fix the bug that will not allow people to subscribe to your website, as I said I have the website linked to a huge platform and people have complained that they can’t sub or didn’t get the link when the post was published. If I did not have such a big platform somewhere else, I would be very hurt because it would look as if I’m getting no subscriptions or views. Please fix these issues. I have reached out to three different techs on this app via Zoom chats about the issues addressed. I’m not sure if they are really knowledgeable about it, except a guy named Adam who was very helpful, or if they are just winging it or if this app is all Beta. However these issues need to be addressed.
Great at everything
by zfurbii on 2019/05/25 16:17
This app is amazing for building your own website. Places like squarespace say you can make a site in minutes and you can but it is very clunky and not as easy to make your own. This app makes it easy as cake to make your own website how you want to. On a computer the website looks a little funny but it’s easy to fix that with a little more time to make it amazing. On top of that you only need your phone to get started so it’s convenient and it’s less that $10 a month for pro which includes a free domain. It also includes an explore tab so you can get inspiration from others. I love this app and can’t wait to keep using it
A great website builder
by Bobby_MoJ on 2021/08/04 18:15
So far, for 0$, I have downloaded this app and built a very simple basic website for my Musician Page. People have visited my site and now I have something to actually market and talk about now!! Seriously considering now buying the lifetime website outright, as a place to showcase my music. The only thing that would upset that plan, is the obsolescence of the internet itself, which is bound to happen!! Even if the new MetaVerse (imagine a VR internet V2.0) came into existence within 10-15 years, I think the old internet and this website would still be viable. But maybe Universe Developers should look into that, it’s the next big thing ;)
Please reach out to me
by CharlotteCeceliaObrien on 2019/09/06 17:49
This is a last resort of trying to get in contact with the developers to give me access to my business site. If I knew they were up and coming I wouldn’t have dedicated so much time and effort to edit my site & so much trust to be able to handle my business page. It’s been more than a month.... which I pay for that I’m not able to access the site and update my menus for my customers which then adds confusion to my sales when they are mentioning outdated posts on my website and I have to explain to them that I’m not able to access it at this moment and that’s why there’s an error. Incredibly unprofessional if you couldn’t handle all types of bugs and errors you should let people know so they don’t waste their time. But if you can please feel free to help me out because it’s really ridiculous !
BEST APP! Just a few things I would like them to add.
by OneShot316 on 2021/09/01 23:31
If you are looking to build a website/app, this is PERFECT. You might think you can only build website’s and not apps but you can click the share website button and click add to Home Screen! There its an app and web! You can do EVERYTHING on this website. There is just 1 question I’d like to ask the developer of this app. I would really like if you can make a monthly subscription where you pay monthly for example, paying monthly for email updates, paying monthly to access files and stuff like that. Otherwise, this app is the “BEST” at making website’s. Thank you universe!
The way shipping works on here is just draining
by melleemakesthings on 2021/07/01 06:54
I love this app, it has helped me expand my business loads and I’ve even been featured on your Instagram before, but I’m practically begging y’all at this point to add a feature where people can pay for shipping when they purchase something. I’m also begging you even harder to find a way to allow mass printing of shipping labels because going through 170 orders and single handedly filling out the weight for the same item for a different order every single time leads me to burnout. It would be so easy if the weight of the items was already coded in when I list it to be paid for. I just sat down for 2 hours making/printing shipping labels and it’s making me want to just switch to Shopify or go back to Depop since their labels are premade.
Basically a scam
by kathryn3333 on 2020/05/17 17:42
I went to try the 3 day trial and was charged immediately, rather than in 3 days. However, even though I was charged and received a welcome email from Universe, the app does not register that I am charged and will not allow me to use the Pro features. When I reached out to Universe about this issue, they recommended that I ask Apple for a refund, and also told me that Apple might not refund me but if I stay persistent in the request, I may get my money back. Apparently this is a common problem. I don’t like to write negative reviews but I was charged $120 for a service I can’t use, and customer service basically told me to figure it out myself. Especially if your economic situation has been affected by the pandemic like me, it’s not worth the risk to try this service and be billed for nothing. I was trying to save money on my website and look what happened. Smh. Lesson learned.
I WAS loving it until….
by sweet&sours on 2021/07/06 23:18
Okay…updating this to say I still love it. Here’s the catch. It had logged me out. I tried to log back in, and that apparently wasn’t what I signed up with. Long story short I had to set up a new free account only to log out - so it would bring me to a log in screen (instead of being stuck in a set up loop), so I could sign in with the appropriate log in. In the end, I had to set up a third website for a podcast I’m starting anyways. The founder himself got back to me and sent someone from the company to reach out directly. I’d say that’s great customer service. So the five stars stay put! Thanks, Joe! You made it a great experience.
Misleading
by Firebrun2002 on 2020/01/28 07:32
I like the app and it works as advertised. But the reason I give this app 2 stars is because when you sign up for the free trial it tells you that it’s only 10 dollars a month but never tells you that the app is a year long subscription only. I though I was going to be charged 10 dollars a month when I signed up but was charged 120 dollars for a year long subscription. I wish the app would be more clear about this and tell you when you sign up and if it did say it it was lost likely in a small font hard to read for the average consumer to notice. It’s a little shady to be honest.
Great customer support
by Dan Juno on 2019/03/15 09:10
Great application for mobile website building. You can make multiple pages and their editing app is really easy to use. I’ve used dreamweaver in the past but their editing app makes a quick site so easy to build in comparison. Even had an issue and the support team member Jessica helped me. Her quick response made me really feel like this company cares about its customers and wants to improve issues. Therefore I also signed on for a pro subscription to reap additional benefits for the app. Great app 10/10.
Shady business practices and mediocre app
by briannabites on 2019/09/05 08:07
I downloaded this app as a way to check out my website building options for my brand. The UI is kinda interesting but pretty simplistic; it’s hard to make sites that look good if you have a lot of information. The whole concept of using a grid basically means you’re forced into specific templates with not much room for flexibility. I used their domain service while I was testing the app, and after I decided not to go with them (due to their issues connecting with my Shopify account) they basically tried to blackmail me into keeping my domain, claiming I needed to make some sort of third party account or wait 90 days. It was only after threatening to report them to ICANN that I finally got my domain back. Do not use their domain service! It’s overpriced and they’ll try to keep your domain.
Hmm
by Ebsolas on 2018/06/06 06:51
It's interesting how some of these reviews sound so well scripted... Kind of shocking how whitty, clever, and so though out they are for something that most people spend all of 5 seconds contemplating before writing. Now I'm not accusing anyone of anything in particular I wouldn't be too shocked of anything as well... As for my thoughts on the app itself. It's basically useless as a web design program as it's advertised. Although it may has some potential as a free tool for making working prototypes. If the developers of this app were smart they would pick up on this and capitalize on this potential rather than focus on actually making websites with it. It's far easier to just use WordPress theme 2015 and be done with it. That being said l definitely don't speak for everyone and some people may actually find it useful for it's presented use case, however I find it to be lacking too much in power for that. Perhaps in the future once it has more features for power users I will revisit this, but for now I'm going to put it aside. Good first step. I'm looking forward to it.
Great App but...
by lanabananax on 2019/06/11 21:47
I love the graphics and just about everything to do with the Universe BUT Km not seeing any option for a “back” button or an option to change your original template to a different one if not happy with the one chosen??? I’m forever stuck on one page. I’ve seen this as a problem with other apps as well.... is this possibly an Apple issue more so than an App issue? I don’t know but I’m stuck going nowhere because I can’t hit back or move around the dashboard at all. I’d love to use Universe if so could remedy this problem. I need to restart from scratch and I never even got past the beginning.....yup.
This is a domain registration company posing as a website construction company.
by PasstheMayo on 2019/09/07 03:19
Do you not see it as underhanded to claim to be a website construction app that won’t let you use the thing if you come to the table having already purchased your own domain? You don’t mention this requirement in any of the summations of your site. You have to discover it along the way after downloading the app. Are you a website construction company? Are you a domain registrar? You can be both, but please don’t shake my hand with one arm while hiding the other behind your back and pretending it’s for my benefit. If you were honest and told people they had to register their domain with you in order to use your website building program folks would have the information they need to make an educated decision.
What’s the point of a background? (Fixed)
by Yuahde on 2021/03/10 02:16
The background feature is useless. Only you in the editor can see it. Open up the site on any browser. No background just blank white. Then we have the images, they have an action feature. Doesn’t work. I have a valid web page linked and it does nothing. It doesn’t even register being clicked or tapped. Edit: this was fixed after an update and hasn’t come up since. Definitely a good app for people who don’t have experience with html or have experience with html and know how long and boring things like that are.
Customer Service on point
by dancinkinglo on 2020/08/06 04:34
Very beautiful app the people I contacted regarding my website domain responded to me very fast they change my name not once but twice (which usually There is a fee, they were willing to work with me and we’re very kind in the process I really appreciate the people they have working behind this app they developed it very well they really listen to feedback and it’s just so easy to use but yet it looks professional it is professional and quite possibly one of the better design website apps out there
Not worth your time.
by Holmquizzle on 2018/02/05 05:23
1. Site design is very limited. This is the kind of design that fails. Someone heard “simple is better” and got carried away. The lack of flexibility and functionality strips the resulting sites of any meaning or character. 2. The functionality is awful. There’s no tutorial and the three column block system is terribly rigid. You can’t create any other pages, so no real site content is possible – only linking to social media. Design-wise, there’s no way to resize text blocks, make blocks overlap, create simple buttons or forms, or calls to action. 3. You’re literally setting your site up for failure if you think this will meet your needs. Get onto a desktop and design a responsive site using Squarespace or Wordpress. You don’t even need a professional and it’s just as easy.
Nothing is perfect.
by Drewsiferxxx on 2021/09/01 00:10
Except for this app’s customer service department. I loved this app. Really loved it. An update came an threatened to ruin it all. Preview cards stopped working. So here’s the thing. I went to the help desk and actually got help. From calm reasonable folks who genuinely wanted to help me. Braley took a declining situation and turned it into a win in the end. Guess what. I don’t have to say “loved.” They fixed things and rewarded me for my patience and troubles. Very good work. Been a customer for a few years and will definitely stick around. Awesome app A+ service!
Thieves
by DONT DO IT TO YOURSELF PEOPLE on 2020/11/22 03:19
This company are thieves. I payed for a month subscription to test this site and I really liked the ease of use for setting up a online website. I created a site and started to get sales and fulfill my orders and they promise 2 day payouts and then suddenly change it to manually requested (basically they pay you when they want if at all) Customers complain that the payment block doesn’t take certain cards and they stop your payments and pay you when they feel like it. They alleged fraudulent transactions as an excuse keep my earnings because I was doing well in sales! Just a balance sitting in my account and I may never get paid. What a rip off and waste of time I hope someone sees this and don’t not put your money into this company!!
Good but not great
by AngeTheWanted on 2019/09/14 19:05
This is by far the cheapest way to purchase a domain and the site has simple web building features but not the most basic things like bold / italic and linking words. Instead it affects an entire block which is annoying. So this is great if you need something extremely simple but not for much more than that. Also I deleted my site with the assumption that my purchased domain would be available again but it's saying the domain still is still unavailable and I've emailed the team twice about deleting my site from the web so I could purchase the domain elsewhere but have received no response so please contact me ASAP.
Game Changing App!! 100% Customer Service too.
by hgunders on 2018/05/02 11:04
First of all the customer service is HANDs down the best and is very refreshing In today’s day in age when that’s unheard of. The developer actually reached out after download to make sure he defined the mission of the company and to make sure happiness was tied to this app. He still reaches out a year later. When I think about all of the 1000s of Apps I have downloaded (I’m obsessed with finding the most satisfying for some reason) and have thought “eh, this is good but I’m still waiting”... there’s no app I don’t credit near as much as I do this one. For the 1 star reviews, you may to squeeze a little creativity you have and it doesn’t take much with the tools they give you to create an amazing site. This app helped me gather ALL social media and websites in one hub so I wasn’t all over the place. Still the best app in my opinion!!
Stuck In Fake Pro Status!
by Liightskin_infatuation on 2019/09/07 10:04
I have raved and raved about this app. This would have got 5 stars but I have been waiting to get paid to assure that I had the money to make sure my domain was claimed and accurate. Here we are almost a Month later and I still am stuck in The TRIAL VERSION OF PRO this has been aggravating for I have a business deal to make and the .onuniverse is aggravating me for it is he weekend and I can not access support!! I need this fixed ASAP having to wait until Monday is absurb I don’t understand I can’t pressing to upgrade and I keep getting when your trail is over 🤦🏻‍♀️
Love the app
by camchristinn on 2019/01/16 21:50
I truly enjoy everything about the app, the simplicity, how easy it is, and stylish. I’m currently on the 7 day free trial and would most likely pay for pro IF you could have more options to choose from to set up your shop products. Right now there is just Shopify and I’m not going to pay and open a whole other shop just to be able to link my products. I already have a shop through Etsy, so it was a bummer to find out I couldn’t have my products on it. If there were to become more options for that I would definitely become a pro customer.
Paid for premium but can’t use premium features
by O. just O. on 2021/09/01 21:59
This is why I normally pay a month at a time for subscriptions. I figured, why not go all in on a year for this app? The price difference was enough to convince me. Then when it came time to register my domain, I get a generic error telling me to reach out to support. I try to do that in the app, and it gives me the SAME generic error. I’m now losing time on the subscription I spent a whole lot of money on because it doesn’t work. Edit: customer service is trash, this service is trash. They will not offer ANY sort of recourse for this inconvenience that I had to solve by myself because support was absolutely useless. I honestly feel taken advantage of and will be contacting Apple for a full refund.
Stunning, intuitive website creation
by Cecelia Shao on 2019/04/21 12:22
It literally took me 2 minutes to set up the website for my personal project and it looks WAY better and more modern than anything I could’ve created using another provider. The drag and drop concept is very easy and practical to use. Also love the flexibility of styling options for things like text + the array of blocks I can use. Keep up the stellar work! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a website
Universe is amazing
by erc eld on 2021/10/05 16:10
This app is the best website creator you can find. I am a designer who has used Squarespace, Cargo Collective, and even Tumblr to try and host a portfolio, and none have come even close to what I’ve been able to do in universe. A few complaints: I wish it were easier to cut/copy/paste blocks, there is no undo/redo, and no support for any fonts other than the ones it comes with. Google fonts would be nice, user fonts would be even better! Also the mac app is very laggy, even on M1 models. But for real, I can’t recommend Universe enough. Give it a shot.
Not convinced
by SavvyGina on 2018/03/14 05:03
I admit I'm a bit tougher on thingslike this because I've built a website before. I must say my account didn't come up in the initial search and I was met with message saying to email the company but there isn't a link I could click to easily and quickly email them I'd literally have to go into my email browser and type the email address free hand and I legit dont feel like I should have to work that hard at this point your product has let me down twice and won't be allowed a third. I even skimmed the reviews and noticed some mentioning false positive reviews but I will say the owners respond with I think is fantastic it shows that they are real and they do monitor their reviews. Ultimately not intetested... have a great day.
Changed Review
by BroGod708 on 2020/02/16 16:01
I felt obligated to change my review from a 1 Star to a 5 I honestly did not give the app a fair chance because I was not prepared to be charge $125 for the year. Saying that it is worth if not more with the unlimited websites your allowed to create with the easy interface you can create it easy and very good app. It 5 star quality and if your like me impatient give a another and again and ever try it again because it super simplistic and effective for your business.

Every email address I put on these sites has seen an extraordinary increase in spam as well as sales calls since everything has to go through the phone (literally 24-48 hours after every post). T & C is extra confusing and technically isn’t even for this app (sharpest eyes will notice in the fine print that the app itself washes its hands of parent company T&C). I take special care to determine where I’m getting hit from so I can keep it away so I’m looking forward to seeing in writing as a response to this review that it’s not happening. Works well enough and customer service left nothing to be desired, but I’m going to need certain reassurances to establish actual trust at this point.
No more site developer!

Here’s to Universe! I’ve never wrote a review but this app-the Universe Team behind it deserve the best i can do. Not only am I now empowered to create my website on my phone, the team always responds to my questions, however crazy and they may be. Universe brings convenience to website building-I can upload, edit and add whatever I like whenever, wherever I am. Every question I ask is addressed. I receive notes from Universe every now and then as they check in on my progress. It works for anyone. My website doesn’t appear to be the norm for their user group. I’m not an artist, musician, blogger or an IT guru. Just a regular guy running a small business who needed a website. Here’s to Universe for handing me the ability create my own website! -I downloaded nearly every self-help app this one is the one.
Feature request

I think it'd be helpful if we could save drafts of the edits we make on our webpages. This would help in situations like the following: Let's say I've been working on an edit for a webpage for several hours and then all of a sudden my device dies. Losing all those edits to then have to painstakingly redo all of them would be laborious so maybe having the servers constantly save the edits in a "draft" form just in case something happens could be useful.
Amazazinngggg! And that’s not a typo

I’m so in love with this app. It’s so easy to use. I created my website within minutes. They give you different layouts that you can customize. On top of that they give you the different types of domains that you can use. And it’s fairly cheap! If you aren’t looking to explode that brain of yours making a website that takes you a few minutes. Download the app and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Love you anyway
by You After Ordering on 2019/11/15 01:34
I really loved the app before the update, but I completely understand knowing your worth. I also really appreciate existing users being able to update existing tiles without needing to subscribe; you guys didn’t have to do that and if no one else says it, thank you. However, would it be possible to make videos uploaded from our phone or computer a free feature? I feel that it would really get the basics covered as far text & photo. Still, thank you for an amazing app. 🖤
BEWARE THIS SCAM
by Rifqa123 on 2020/04/11 17:12
I design websites for a living in various platforms and thought I would give this app a try thinking it might be a good way to design websites on the fly. I downloaded it around New Year’s Day played with it for a couple hours, didn’t find it as intuitive and easy as expected but figured I’d come back to it. Being the holidays I didn’t have that much time. Low behold, two days later (unlike the 1 week trial period most apps give) this app charged me for (not a month as is again common with less scammy apps) but a FULL YEAR! Within 2 hours of the charge I tried to have it reversed and was told it was impossible. Never been so pushed off by an app. Their payment model is a huge HUGE SCAM.
Great app, just problems.
by Fire alarm fan on 2019/05/24 02:16
I love this app and have been looking for an app where you can make a website quick and easy. I made a website and it worked for a while, but later I decided to look at it and there was a 404 Error pop up and the website would not load. I messaged universe and they fixed everything, but later it started happening again. So I didn’t use the app anymore till later. I went back and thought maybe they fixed the issue. But it was still happening. It was really a waste of time and I was disappointed. I hope the developers can fix this soon.
Love it
by The hamster ninja on 2018/07/12 10:23
This is perfect for me it’s simple and easy to use I’m an artist and I always wanted my own site and once I saw this I was simply blown away at how easy it was to make a really pretty page for free I would like to over lap images and buttons and such I did have one experience with a bug where an image became stuck and it was over top another image and I had to restart the app but other than that I am really loving this app
Universe
by Finessin Ant on 2020/04/18 18:03
Love the app when I first had it 2 years ago but when I finally started to go edit my website you guys literally make us pay for everything & I’m only allowed to use text or photo which is not bad but I tried to pay $10 a month & didn’t know I had to pay all the money up front which make the app hard to deal with because I’m stuck and think you guys should make it to where us the people are able to pay $10 a month just to use all the features wouldn’t care if we lost it the next month but how do you guys expect us to update our sites with just 2 features I love the app just wanted to give my opinion
simple AND effective
by mrmag83 on 2017/09/16 21:33
literally was able to build my site at 1am in the morning while half-alseep; so many sites claim to be easy but still require too much work, especially for someones who doesn't need a full, blown-out site. this is perfect for the jack-of-all-trades creative type who just needs a pretty landing page for their work to live - it's inexpensive and you'll have a domain and something up in minutes!
Perfect for my first website
by JPlo on 2018/06/07 03:34
I’m 46 and not computer savvy. I use my phone for day-to-day computing. This app is really convenient and inexpensive. The app certainly fills the gap between no website and more complex, high-end interfaces. I now have my own URL for my small business at a great price - and I truly believe that Mr. Cohen and his team will continue to improve the experience. I’m looking forward to what the future holds for this app!!
Good, but needs a few tweaks
by YoChuckDAmongUs on 2021/03/08 20:41
First of all let me say that this is actually 4.5 stars. They just don’t have an option for 4.5 stars. but anyway, this app is amazing and even though it has some Internet problems it is still worth every penny. There’s just one thing though, when you try to download a song, you get denied from the file first thing.I don’t know if it’s just an Internet problem but it really needs to be fixed.
Still needs work
by WhyIHAtethisapp on 2021/01/07 02:14
Universe is a user friendly app and a good tool build a basic website. My issue is if you have an item with multiple colors the customer has no idea what color is which. Yes they can select the color in the payment section but the color does not show on the actual picture of the item making it confusing for the end user. If they upgrade this feature I would keep my store on universe because it’s really easy to add and delete items.
Does not work. Possibly a scam.
by Ellionazul on 2020/02/13 00:44
I just downloaded this app onto my iPad Pro and to my iPhone 11 Max Pro. These two devices are fairly new and are both updated to the latest updates available and they each have a very good amount gigabytes for storage. Well, guess what? It did not work on either and instead I got “error” messages on both when I installed on one then the next and I only wanted to see how true a website builder it is/was. And it failed. I wasn’t too sold on the idea to begin with so off to app chopping block it went. DELETE!! NEXT! And I won’t be re-installing after having read the other “horrible” reviews.
Love it, and the support is absolutely amazing!
by Peelage on 2021/03/08 00:56
Being this is a startup I appreciate their dedication to supporting customers. I’m in the process of becoming a lifetime subscriber to maintain my DJ business. It is very easy to use and I look forward to some of the advanced features. I look forward to future updates and the ability to use this software on the Mac Mini M1!! Thank you for coming out with this app, it’s perfect!

I love it its free my business blow up so quickly
Universe is amazing
by erc eld on 2021/10/05 16:10
This app is the best website creator you can find. I am a designer who has used Squarespace, Cargo Collective, and even Tumblr to try and host a portfolio, and none have come even close to what I’ve been able to do in universe. A few complaints: I wish it were easier to cut/copy/paste blocks, there is no undo/redo, and no support for any fonts other than the ones it comes with. Google fonts would be nice, user fonts would be even better! Also the mac app is very laggy, even on M1 models. But for real, I can’t recommend Universe enough. Give it a shot.
I can’t use universe?
by LostWrlds on 2021/09/28 20:37
So I love it but I could only use it once after I tryed to go back in it wouldn’t let me it was just a retry button I kept trying but nothing it’s so sad cause I like the app and now I have a thing for making websites But can’t cause the app has me locked out of it please help dev don’t give me a lame response

I am new at this online begginer buisness thing and this website made it super easy to start something . I did pay for 1 yr of service because the pro settings offered more help. so far So good :)
I dont recommand it at all !
by Laura botbol on 2021/09/20 19:34
i purschased it because i saw the reviews but dont trust them ! its really not for you if you are looking to create a website for computer ! its "okay" for cellphone... you need to have everything on your library, you dont have acces to the picture on your desktop... really really upset about this purschase. you have only 3 days if you want to test it.. to late for me, i was thinking i didnt know how to use it so the time a watch youtube video and make internet research.. the delay was expired. DONT BUY IT
Customer Service nonexistant
by Skottii on 2021/09/15 22:50
The graph that shows website traffic is often broken and impossible to use. Customer support shows absolutely no awareness when it comes to this recurring issue, and it is a battle to get the data that I need. I do NOT recommend this app.
-5 stars
by someone random i guess on 2021/09/15 00:34
If I could rate this a -5 star I would I receive plenty of orders and receive money and I also bout the 2 day payout I have yet to receive any money it do not have any payout button and I’ve waited 3 weeks to receive my money so I will not be using this app bye
Fun but limited

ok but editing is bad
by xxsky.ii on 2021/09/12 08:11
I always mistake the trash button for deleting the text, this needs an undo and redo button, pinching is so hard, and it doesn’t save!! please fix this
I don’t have a log in option. Why is that?

Great app. Some bugs and suggestions.
by ShiningLikeTheSun on 2021/09/07 05:11
It has its downsides, but I really appreciate having this option, and the builders’ commitment to listening to feedback and making a better app. That being said, a recent bug that’s been happening is I publish the website, and then when I open it, all the spacing looks different. I think it’s been happening since they introduced block-layering (which I LOVE, btw). Would still love to see custom colors as an option—hex code, eye dropper… maybe a gradient). That would be AMAZING. Also optional margins for the edges of the website or for blocks? Text wrapping around objects would be fantastic. Again, love what y’all are doing.
great but not on mac
by sbrai777 on 2021/09/06 22:56
for some reason the mac version is kind of laggy and has a weird format BUT on iphone or ipad it's really easy to make a website with still looking professional. and you can still do most things without premium which is nice. overall i love this app but it is difficult to use on mac. i would also like to add that the new update where the grid controls are grouped in the corner is Very inconvenient and annoying and it was much better before :/
Incredible! When I was able to use it.
by Mr.Popcorn91 on 2021/09/05 15:30
It was an amazing and incredibly beautiful website builder but now when I try to sign in or sign up, it does not seem to work. It keeps on saying error code. I don’t know how to fix this. Now I have to use MailChimp. Anyways, Could you please, please fix this issue.
BEST APP! Just a few things I would like them to add.
by OneShot316 on 2021/09/01 23:31
If you are looking to build a website/app, this is PERFECT. You might think you can only build website’s and not apps but you can click the share website button and click add to Home Screen! There its an app and web! You can do EVERYTHING on this website. There is just 1 question I’d like to ask the developer of this app. I would really like if you can make a monthly subscription where you pay monthly for example, paying monthly for email updates, paying monthly to access files and stuff like that. Otherwise, this app is the “BEST” at making website’s. Thank you universe!
Paid for premium but can’t use premium features
by O. just O. on 2021/09/01 21:59
This is why I normally pay a month at a time for subscriptions. I figured, why not go all in on a year for this app? The price difference was enough to convince me. Then when it came time to register my domain, I get a generic error telling me to reach out to support. I try to do that in the app, and it gives me the SAME generic error. I’m now losing time on the subscription I spent a whole lot of money on because it doesn’t work. Edit: customer service is trash, this service is trash. They will not offer ANY sort of recourse for this inconvenience that I had to solve by myself because support was absolutely useless. I honestly feel taken advantage of and will be contacting Apple for a full refund.
Nothing is perfect.
by Drewsiferxxx on 2021/09/01 00:10
Except for this app’s customer service department. I loved this app. Really loved it. An update came an threatened to ruin it all. Preview cards stopped working. So here’s the thing. I went to the help desk and actually got help. From calm reasonable folks who genuinely wanted to help me. Braley took a declining situation and turned it into a win in the end. Guess what. I don’t have to say “loved.” They fixed things and rewarded me for my patience and troubles. Very good work. Been a customer for a few years and will definitely stick around. Awesome app A+ service!

Love it but…
by MrsShannon8082 on 2021/08/30 03:56
Love it mostly. Easy for beginners. I do wish there was a way to automatically add applicable taxes and S&H to all orders. Also, a way to search through items, both as I’m building as well as for the customer using the site.
Excellent
by Wakingbucket1994 on 2021/08/19 15:58
Universe has been the best website building experience for my small business. My two favorite things (as a Universe Pro) member: Accessibility / Interface: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Easily edit or update any aspect of your site from your phone or laptop seamlessly. This, in my opinion, is the #1 core competency of Universe—and something they do better than any competitor. Service / Support: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Quick to respond, happy to help, and knowledgeable on what the heck to do. Simple as that.
Transaction fees
by Chipmunk Wolf on 2021/08/19 00:36
Seemed to good to be true. There is a montly subscription and they take 10%. Yes 10% of every transaction you make.
Super Easy To Use
by cakeseance on 2021/08/16 17:46
The UI of this app is extremely straightforward, easy to learn, and beautifully designed. All around, its very easy and efficient to use and makes building websites a much less daughting process. I switch between building on my iphone and my mac, and i wish that there was a way to add photos from your desktop on mac as well as directly from the photos app.

Wow! So easy to create!!!
by Eric Dat Nguyen on 2021/08/06 15:38
Before I found this app, I worked on other apps such as html coding apps. When i found this app, I knew we don’t have to write code!
A great website builder
by Bobby_MoJ on 2021/08/04 18:15
So far, for 0$, I have downloaded this app and built a very simple basic website for my Musician Page. People have visited my site and now I have something to actually market and talk about now!! Seriously considering now buying the lifetime website outright, as a place to showcase my music. The only thing that would upset that plan, is the obsolescence of the internet itself, which is bound to happen!! Even if the new MetaVerse (imagine a VR internet V2.0) came into existence within 10-15 years, I think the old internet and this website would still be viable. But maybe Universe Developers should look into that, it’s the next big thing ;)
Wow
by ElzzuP143 on 2021/08/02 18:52
I love this app and I continue to grow with it and experience new capabilitites and tabs, this app is smooth and very easy to navigate. Ive been using this to build my main website and some sister sites and its going really well!

Fraud Charges
by The Upcomer on 2021/07/16 20:12
I was trying this app out and it seemed pretty basic and limited so the app offered a trial premium period. So last night I tried the trial and was wondering if I may like it more, well I wake up and have a charge in my Apple Purchases of$129 and that is not okay. I don't know why trail subscription make companies think they can just go ahead and charge you the moment you opt in but I will be disputing this big time.
Good Concept, Horrible Execution
by raygood on 2021/07/16 01:53
Not worth your time or effort. Better results, scratch that. Far better results are easy using alternative methods. Blocks should stay in Kindergarten where they belong.
Won’t open on my iPad
by shjon1000 on 2021/07/09 00:11
This app looks very interesting but will not open. When I try it only shows the opening logo and then crashes. Any help would be appreciated.
I WAS loving it until….
by sweet&sours on 2021/07/06 23:18
Okay…updating this to say I still love it. Here’s the catch. It had logged me out. I tried to log back in, and that apparently wasn’t what I signed up with. Long story short I had to set up a new free account only to log out - so it would bring me to a log in screen (instead of being stuck in a set up loop), so I could sign in with the appropriate log in. In the end, I had to set up a third website for a podcast I’m starting anyways. The founder himself got back to me and sent someone from the company to reach out directly. I’d say that’s great customer service. So the five stars stay put! Thanks, Joe! You made it a great experience.
Love it
by gabjbr on 2021/07/06 13:18

by Miashka D on 2021/07/01 22:15
I thought it was too good to be true… and it was. You get to the point where you choose the template for the website, after (of course!) you have given your information, only to be told that you have to pay. NO FREE OPTION. I mean I get you made the app to get rich maybe but come on, $500 for an”lifetime” membership?? I’ll stick to my desktop. I guess human courtesy is out of the question. Thanks!
The way shipping works on here is just draining
by melleemakesthings on 2021/07/01 06:54
I love this app, it has helped me expand my business loads and I’ve even been featured on your Instagram before, but I’m practically begging y’all at this point to add a feature where people can pay for shipping when they purchase something. I’m also begging you even harder to find a way to allow mass printing of shipping labels because going through 170 orders and single handedly filling out the weight for the same item for a different order every single time leads me to burnout. It would be so easy if the weight of the items was already coded in when I list it to be paid for. I just sat down for 2 hours making/printing shipping labels and it’s making me want to just switch to Shopify or go back to Depop since their labels are premade.
Ripoff

I used this app because I got married and people send me money for may honeymoon.. they took a % and now they are asking a lot of questions, I didn’t get my money yet .. I did Venmo too and I didn’t have any problem !! Hoping get my money 😒
CANT EVEN LOG INTO MY ACCOUNT

Please allow text to be justified
by NARD BRUH! on 2021/06/16 14:50
I like this app because it’s simple and easy. The blocks are plenty enough to get by and I would request 2 features: 1. Allow text to be justified. 2. Allow the repositioning of images inside of a block. Notion allows this very easily and I think it would be a game changer. Instead of guessing the right size/cropping with another app, repositioning would solve this Instantly! Hope you guys see this
Amazing!!!
by rishito on 2021/06/16 10:46
Honestly the app is amazing, asy to use and the results are pretty cool. Its a little pricy, but also is for one year subscription

works great on my ipad, with the exception of being able to find a few functions such as basic navigation around the interface. the mac version doesnt seem to be able to fluidly allow you to jump between pages and easily efit what you want. im not sure if at the PRO level they get rid of the lags and crippledness, but overall there are a lot of possibilities that can be done with this. definiteylw orth the buy especially when you're under a little but of a time crunch
Digital handcuffs -- Awful to use
by Geahk on 2021/06/04 23:35
Universe is frankly AWFUL. it feels clunky and restrictive. Even the most basic website builders don't feel THIS limiting. Terribly uncreative and a pain to use. I've been using the app to build a new portfolio site for a couple months. Normally, when I'm critical of an app I begin to appreciate it subtleties after a working with it a while. My criticism softens. not with Universe. It only gets worse the longer I use it. New features come slow. Useful features disappear with updates. Don't expect to be able to insert transparent-background pngs or TIFFs! You get white or black backgrounds and that it! The app just made it introduction recently and it already feels ten years out of date.
Your App helped my Label
by Jay Angel Latigo on 2021/06/03 00:33
This app is amazing for the longest my domain had been under universe and I will continue to use Universe for days to come
Terrible
by gehsbgxukqfagblt on 2021/06/02 15:36
This app is terrible it won’t let us log in.
Pro
by gtselios on 2021/05/26 20:23
I bought pro subscription and I keep having to restore it and it never works. I’ve had support fix this once and it fixed but now I don’t have pro subscription again. Great idea bad execution
High hopes but not worth the money
by VermontDan on 2021/05/26 17:31
I had high hopes when this launched. However, after comparing with Squarespace it is no where near as powerful nor as beautiful and it’s not expensive. There is still opportunity for a startup to disrupt the leaders but this ain’t it.
Easy to use and great support
by gowoncrunchy on 2021/05/18 23:08
I made my own website from scratch, and decided to redo it in Universe, and it was so much prettier and easier 😳 I use it for my twitter bio and it basically has everything I'd want to make a website. Support was also really kind and understanding 😊 it's what caused me to go and rate this app.
Sign in missing
by Kdfits on 2021/05/17 13:41
Purchased the premium version. The app itself works well. However signing into the app is different story. I was auto signed out by the app, and finding a sign in or log in is virtually not there. That being said. I can’t even sign into my own site and edit because there is nowhere to log in, no customer service to call. If the makers read this PLEASE let me know where the sign in is, I don’t have the option to sign into my own site.
Greatest and easiest Web App in the world!
by Ab23abz on 2021/05/09 17:27
Love this app! I almost made the mistake of paying 2k foe a website before accidentally fumbling over universe.com builder. This is well within my company budget and easy to use. Thank you heavenly sent universe app!
Sadly...
by craab on 2021/05/04 05:57
...yet another subscription service - gimmee a break
LOVE, LOVE THIS APP! Best since iWeb
by Feminomena on 2021/04/27 22:42
At first, I thought you could only use this if you bought a domain name. I was totally wrong. You can redirect your domains to reroute to this one. Designing is a breeze. You will end up with really modern and beautiful website with this app. If you are selling, this is definitely the way to go, but you will need to go premium.
I love it but have a request
by Andrew Skells on 2021/04/26 22:06
This app is amazing and it’s making my roving life a lot easier to blog with! That being said, I love the contact function but I would also like the ability to implement a “comment” section on the website as well. Is that possibly in the works?
Mind Blowing
by theedivinemisswanda on 2021/04/21 10:49
Just from the description alone is mind blowing. This is a game changer! Could possibly be website building for dummies!Even though I don’t know a thang about coding this makes me wanna learn.
Great App but missing some features
by FR_GY on 2021/04/21 06:46
I really want to move away from Wordpress and medium as a form of blogging or my podcast and I am super leaning into this app. It’s easy to use, easy to set up, easy to edit. The only drawback is it doesn’t have a way to embed podcast files or a quick way to write a blog and post it without having to make the page multiple times. Once this app has that, I will totally switch
Great app! Easy to use
by ineverleavereviewsever on 2021/04/19 01:48
I never leave reviews but I had to cause this app is the easiest thing for me as an artist to use. I just wanna be able to share my content quickly and I want it to be aesthetically pleasing. This app makes that possible!
Web design for everyone
by illuminadam on 2021/04/16 23:38
Coming from a UX perspective, this app has everything one could possible need to dream, build, update, and maintain a site. It's really empowering, thoughtful, and most importantly powerful. I can't praise it enough.
Garbage

Wow
by NarniaDragon on 2021/04/13 00:55
Ok, I don’t usually rate apps, but this is actually amazing. Before using this app, I had to make two other websites for a class. They took HOURS, but on this app, it can literally take SECONDS. I’m super impressed, and I think I might actually get the subscription!

Best of all🤩
by mcHasib on 2021/04/08 00:25
If you say you have no idea about web development but you still want to make one for yourself and you want to do it, Bruh I don’t know if there’s any other app better than this. Just love it. Even with the free version you can do more than enough. It’s just that it’s a little bit expensive for premium features. 😬
Exporting Options Available ?
by BryanSValencia on 2021/04/07 07:42
Does this let you export code Into html or php or the full site into a zip ?

addicted to making websites
by jeanettecookie on 2021/03/11 19:43
i am obsessed with this app!!! I literally make websites for anything!! best app ever 5 stars
I don’t recommend it.
by chuy21jezzy on 2021/03/11 04:37
I don’t recommend it because it does no have the ability like a real website. And if you create a domain and want it to take out or transfer your domain they won’t let you or support will tell that they are working on it but never really do anything. Don’t wasted your time .
cant believe this
by Jovany Corona on 2021/03/10 04:08
i just got done writing my very first blog and this app just froze on me. i lost eveything i had . i cant believe this. why is that ? i dont know . they need to do something about that ASAP. It happened while i was trying to add a product . This isnt the first time the app acted laggy but its the first time i couldnt do anything on it.
What’s the point of a background? (Fixed)
by Yuahde on 2021/03/10 02:16
The background feature is useless. Only you in the editor can see it. Open up the site on any browser. No background just blank white. Then we have the images, they have an action feature. Doesn’t work. I have a valid web page linked and it does nothing. It doesn’t even register being clicked or tapped. Edit: this was fixed after an update and hasn’t come up since. Definitely a good app for people who don’t have experience with html or have experience with html and know how long and boring things like that are.
What happened
by ugoufydydiydiydydif on 2021/03/09 00:00
Everything was going great but I went too the app and somehow had gotten logged out of my account and NOW there’s no option to log in only to build another site. My site is still accessible because it’s still there. What happened why isn’t there better support. I can’t get an actual person on the help line this is crazy!
Good, but needs a few tweaks
by YoChuckDAmongUs on 2021/03/08 20:41
First of all let me say that this is actually 4.5 stars. They just don’t have an option for 4.5 stars. but anyway, this app is amazing and even though it has some Internet problems it is still worth every penny. There’s just one thing though, when you try to download a song, you get denied from the file first thing.I don’t know if it’s just an Internet problem but it really needs to be fixed.
Love it, and the support is absolutely amazing!
by Peelage on 2021/03/08 00:56
Being this is a startup I appreciate their dedication to supporting customers. I’m in the process of becoming a lifetime subscriber to maintain my DJ business. It is very easy to use and I look forward to some of the advanced features. I look forward to future updates and the ability to use this software on the Mac Mini M1!! Thank you for coming out with this app, it’s perfect!

Really awesome app!
by D-Frogy on 2021/03/03 04:25
Been looking far and wide for a web hosting company that sells digital downloads. Well Infinally found it and it’s so simple and easy. Ounce it’s done customers can pay with Apple Pay. No code involved just creativity. Now I can sell my 808 drum kit downloads! 808drumsounds.com baby! Thanks universe one small thing how do I use SoundCloud links I tried pasting the code and it looks weird ?

Yeah you can make a website and all that but isn’t there supposed to be more then that ? Like I want to make a game but there is no code for it so there should be more codes by the way love your website maker I want to know what my website is called how do I even name my website!READ THIS!
Great platform but needs some work
by sabinepitbull on 2021/02/13 23:46
This app makes it SO EASY to make a website. It’s exactly what I was looking for and I love the block layout. Except it keeps crashing!!! I’ll spend half an hour working on my page and then it just crashes and I have to start over. I’ve gotten into the habit of saving every few minutes to avoid losing work... please fix this!!!
Love it!
by GlamaGirl27 on 2018/09/04 00:54
I just love this.. first of all, for myself anyway I found it very simple to use and create... I already have a website, but I loveeee clickable linked pix and graphics! So I basically just created what I consider to be a Virtual Business Card, each image is a link to my everything! A) my regular domain, my Phone, Email.. Photo Links to my socials, FB, IG, Twitter (2 Of each! 🤦🏻‍♀️, so it should make sense why this is so awesome for me.. links to my Snapchat too! I’m really impressed with it.. I do Social media marketing and some of the clients can’t afford a new website and maintain it and all of that.. so I’ve recommended this to quite a few.. a friend of mine is a realtor and I had her do this.. she’s not the savviest with this kind of thing but she still made one, I made a list of things for her to change but even what she put together is good enough and is everything if she wants to be successful.. I also really like that it’s more than just a stand-alone site.. it’s also a community.. which is additional exposure.. and starting off.. you can use all you can get! 5 Stars For Sure.. Totally Recommend This!
Ryder Cash media ”The Ryder Cash story”
by Silk chamberlin on 2020/06/26 15:08
This is the best app to build your website, company, brand, or whatever you want it to be. Especially if you don't know anything about developing a website. This is not only the easiest and fastest way to build a website, it's the best overall app! I was super duper skeptical at first. It sounded to good to be true. I'm glad I was wrong! This app is the truth; ”the people app.” I never expected to also learn as much as I have about computer tech and codes. It's helped me build a couple Facebook business apps and discover a whole new world I never thought was possible. I started my website to address a social injustice involving my 5 month old African American son. Soon I realized I wanted to start a multi media company. To help give others a voice that could be heard. I started Ryder Cash Media named after my son. There's is not enough time for me to tell you everything I love about this app. Shoot for the moon! If you miss, you still amongst those stars.. this is “The Ryder Cash story”. UNIVERSE
Simply Amazing
by Asassypoet on 2019/09/15 21:03
I just have one problem when I go in to add a gif & save it. It creates this big gap between the gif & the next item I add. It’s annoying because I’m trying to get a certain look & that’s messing up the flow of my site. I do absolutely love the app & all the features! I definitely plan to stay with you all & recommend you all to everyone I know! I just need that one thing fixed! Please & thank you 🙏 😊 Update: Developer responded to this review & I was informed to reach out to the Help desk for help. They responded promptly and my problem was resolved! I love the new update where you can embed a playlist! Super cool! This is the BEST WEBSITE Builder I have ever used! I’m excited to watch what else they had! I do wish there was a way you could save blog post for later to edit!
Ahead of its time. But let’s talk about cost.
by ZeeMade on 2020/10/02 01:57
I’ll start off by saying WOW. It’s brilliant. The features are out of this world. I’ll be reviewing this from a small business standpoint. I sell B2C and my products are very personalized and I’ve found ways to do just about everything I set out to. It holds close to these huge platforms like Shopify and BigCommerce. Apps would be nice. I see some huge potential if integrations become a thing here. I am honestly beyond stunned at the ease of adding and editing your context. It’s mind blowing how simple it is to do something on this app that take some time in others. The only reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars is because I can’t use this app for my online store....(insert sad face here) after doing the math I just can’t pay 10% of my transactions to any platform. It’s a LOT compared to others. Super bummed about it. They do have options for cash app and PayPal...which is epic...but it takes away from the professional element in how I envision check out to feel for my clients. Hopefully one day things will change. Until then... 👋
Deceived
by Cas&Kitty on 2018/05/07 23:56
If I could give a negative star, I would. This app is a one page site, which is not a website, and you can’t sell anything, so you might as well call it a blog. It had glitches as well. It would freeze up from time to time. I was deceived when I signed up with the app. I didn’t know I was purchasing a domain name, and they purchase a domain through another service. I decided this app was not going to work for me, so now I have to keep my account open with them for one year. They won’t give me access to my own domain that I purchased. I have a shopify store, and need to buy an email with gsuite, but I can’t even do that, because I need to wait for Universe to log into my domain to finish setting it up. I have not heard back from Universe to do so. I am left waiting. Plus any issue I have with my domain. I have to wait for them to fix the problem. I am not that techno friendly, but I am learning as I go, and I pick on things real quickly. Making someone wait when it is something that can be fixed asap is not right. At least respond with questions in order to fix something. Universe fails to do so. Frustrating to say the least. Another day goes by.
Incredibly simple and beautiful
by aberrantartist on 2019/05/10 17:08
The tools Universe has make it simple and fun for anyone to build a website. It has been incredibly well designed and has a very nice interface with easy to follow instructions and concepts. I think that design and development are moving to more things like this in which we can create more naturally without needing to learn skills such as coding. Don’t get me wrong, coding is very helpful and I have been learning it for the past year, but the more we can move past it and make the computer work for us instead of us needing to work according to the computer, the better computing will become. There is a lot more that could be done with Universe however. It is still fairly restricted since you have to rely on the grid and their preset colors and options. This can certainly be a good thing for people who want that simplicity, but for people that are looking for more, there could be greater customization.
Views and Subscriptions
by Beautiful80 on 2020/11/10 08:56
I love this app but please fix the bug that limits the amount of views you see per day. I have this app linked to a huge platform I have online and the app views never match the actual views that the website is getting. It shows a number way lower than your actual views. Also please fix the bug that will not allow people to subscribe to your website, as I said I have the website linked to a huge platform and people have complained that they can’t sub or didn’t get the link when the post was published. If I did not have such a big platform somewhere else, I would be very hurt because it would look as if I’m getting no subscriptions or views. Please fix these issues. I have reached out to three different techs on this app via Zoom chats about the issues addressed. I’m not sure if they are really knowledgeable about it, except a guy named Adam who was very helpful, or if they are just winging it or if this app is all Beta. However these issues need to be addressed.
Great at everything
by zfurbii on 2019/05/25 16:17
This app is amazing for building your own website. Places like squarespace say you can make a site in minutes and you can but it is very clunky and not as easy to make your own. This app makes it easy as cake to make your own website how you want to. On a computer the website looks a little funny but it’s easy to fix that with a little more time to make it amazing. On top of that you only need your phone to get started so it’s convenient and it’s less that $10 a month for pro which includes a free domain. It also includes an explore tab so you can get inspiration from others. I love this app and can’t wait to keep using it
A great website builder
by Bobby_MoJ on 2021/08/04 18:15
So far, for 0$, I have downloaded this app and built a very simple basic website for my Musician Page. People have visited my site and now I have something to actually market and talk about now!! Seriously considering now buying the lifetime website outright, as a place to showcase my music. The only thing that would upset that plan, is the obsolescence of the internet itself, which is bound to happen!! Even if the new MetaVerse (imagine a VR internet V2.0) came into existence within 10-15 years, I think the old internet and this website would still be viable. But maybe Universe Developers should look into that, it’s the next big thing ;)
Please reach out to me
by CharlotteCeceliaObrien on 2019/09/06 17:49
This is a last resort of trying to get in contact with the developers to give me access to my business site. If I knew they were up and coming I wouldn’t have dedicated so much time and effort to edit my site & so much trust to be able to handle my business page. It’s been more than a month.... which I pay for that I’m not able to access the site and update my menus for my customers which then adds confusion to my sales when they are mentioning outdated posts on my website and I have to explain to them that I’m not able to access it at this moment and that’s why there’s an error. Incredibly unprofessional if you couldn’t handle all types of bugs and errors you should let people know so they don’t waste their time. But if you can please feel free to help me out because it’s really ridiculous !
BEST APP! Just a few things I would like them to add.
by OneShot316 on 2021/09/01 23:31
If you are looking to build a website/app, this is PERFECT. You might think you can only build website’s and not apps but you can click the share website button and click add to Home Screen! There its an app and web! You can do EVERYTHING on this website. There is just 1 question I’d like to ask the developer of this app. I would really like if you can make a monthly subscription where you pay monthly for example, paying monthly for email updates, paying monthly to access files and stuff like that. Otherwise, this app is the “BEST” at making website’s. Thank you universe!
The way shipping works on here is just draining
by melleemakesthings on 2021/07/01 06:54
I love this app, it has helped me expand my business loads and I’ve even been featured on your Instagram before, but I’m practically begging y’all at this point to add a feature where people can pay for shipping when they purchase something. I’m also begging you even harder to find a way to allow mass printing of shipping labels because going through 170 orders and single handedly filling out the weight for the same item for a different order every single time leads me to burnout. It would be so easy if the weight of the items was already coded in when I list it to be paid for. I just sat down for 2 hours making/printing shipping labels and it’s making me want to just switch to Shopify or go back to Depop since their labels are premade.
Basically a scam
by kathryn3333 on 2020/05/17 17:42
I went to try the 3 day trial and was charged immediately, rather than in 3 days. However, even though I was charged and received a welcome email from Universe, the app does not register that I am charged and will not allow me to use the Pro features. When I reached out to Universe about this issue, they recommended that I ask Apple for a refund, and also told me that Apple might not refund me but if I stay persistent in the request, I may get my money back. Apparently this is a common problem. I don’t like to write negative reviews but I was charged $120 for a service I can’t use, and customer service basically told me to figure it out myself. Especially if your economic situation has been affected by the pandemic like me, it’s not worth the risk to try this service and be billed for nothing. I was trying to save money on my website and look what happened. Smh. Lesson learned.
I WAS loving it until….
by sweet&sours on 2021/07/06 23:18
Okay…updating this to say I still love it. Here’s the catch. It had logged me out. I tried to log back in, and that apparently wasn’t what I signed up with. Long story short I had to set up a new free account only to log out - so it would bring me to a log in screen (instead of being stuck in a set up loop), so I could sign in with the appropriate log in. In the end, I had to set up a third website for a podcast I’m starting anyways. The founder himself got back to me and sent someone from the company to reach out directly. I’d say that’s great customer service. So the five stars stay put! Thanks, Joe! You made it a great experience.
Misleading
by Firebrun2002 on 2020/01/28 07:32
I like the app and it works as advertised. But the reason I give this app 2 stars is because when you sign up for the free trial it tells you that it’s only 10 dollars a month but never tells you that the app is a year long subscription only. I though I was going to be charged 10 dollars a month when I signed up but was charged 120 dollars for a year long subscription. I wish the app would be more clear about this and tell you when you sign up and if it did say it it was lost likely in a small font hard to read for the average consumer to notice. It’s a little shady to be honest.
Great customer support
by Dan Juno on 2019/03/15 09:10
Great application for mobile website building. You can make multiple pages and their editing app is really easy to use. I’ve used dreamweaver in the past but their editing app makes a quick site so easy to build in comparison. Even had an issue and the support team member Jessica helped me. Her quick response made me really feel like this company cares about its customers and wants to improve issues. Therefore I also signed on for a pro subscription to reap additional benefits for the app. Great app 10/10.
Shady business practices and mediocre app
by briannabites on 2019/09/05 08:07
I downloaded this app as a way to check out my website building options for my brand. The UI is kinda interesting but pretty simplistic; it’s hard to make sites that look good if you have a lot of information. The whole concept of using a grid basically means you’re forced into specific templates with not much room for flexibility. I used their domain service while I was testing the app, and after I decided not to go with them (due to their issues connecting with my Shopify account) they basically tried to blackmail me into keeping my domain, claiming I needed to make some sort of third party account or wait 90 days. It was only after threatening to report them to ICANN that I finally got my domain back. Do not use their domain service! It’s overpriced and they’ll try to keep your domain.
Hmm
by Ebsolas on 2018/06/06 06:51
It's interesting how some of these reviews sound so well scripted... Kind of shocking how whitty, clever, and so though out they are for something that most people spend all of 5 seconds contemplating before writing. Now I'm not accusing anyone of anything in particular I wouldn't be too shocked of anything as well... As for my thoughts on the app itself. It's basically useless as a web design program as it's advertised. Although it may has some potential as a free tool for making working prototypes. If the developers of this app were smart they would pick up on this and capitalize on this potential rather than focus on actually making websites with it. It's far easier to just use WordPress theme 2015 and be done with it. That being said l definitely don't speak for everyone and some people may actually find it useful for it's presented use case, however I find it to be lacking too much in power for that. Perhaps in the future once it has more features for power users I will revisit this, but for now I'm going to put it aside. Good first step. I'm looking forward to it.
Great App but...
by lanabananax on 2019/06/11 21:47
I love the graphics and just about everything to do with the Universe BUT Km not seeing any option for a “back” button or an option to change your original template to a different one if not happy with the one chosen??? I’m forever stuck on one page. I’ve seen this as a problem with other apps as well.... is this possibly an Apple issue more so than an App issue? I don’t know but I’m stuck going nowhere because I can’t hit back or move around the dashboard at all. I’d love to use Universe if so could remedy this problem. I need to restart from scratch and I never even got past the beginning.....yup.
This is a domain registration company posing as a website construction company.
by PasstheMayo on 2019/09/07 03:19
Do you not see it as underhanded to claim to be a website construction app that won’t let you use the thing if you come to the table having already purchased your own domain? You don’t mention this requirement in any of the summations of your site. You have to discover it along the way after downloading the app. Are you a website construction company? Are you a domain registrar? You can be both, but please don’t shake my hand with one arm while hiding the other behind your back and pretending it’s for my benefit. If you were honest and told people they had to register their domain with you in order to use your website building program folks would have the information they need to make an educated decision.
What’s the point of a background? (Fixed)
by Yuahde on 2021/03/10 02:16
The background feature is useless. Only you in the editor can see it. Open up the site on any browser. No background just blank white. Then we have the images, they have an action feature. Doesn’t work. I have a valid web page linked and it does nothing. It doesn’t even register being clicked or tapped. Edit: this was fixed after an update and hasn’t come up since. Definitely a good app for people who don’t have experience with html or have experience with html and know how long and boring things like that are.
Customer Service on point
by dancinkinglo on 2020/08/06 04:34
Very beautiful app the people I contacted regarding my website domain responded to me very fast they change my name not once but twice (which usually There is a fee, they were willing to work with me and we’re very kind in the process I really appreciate the people they have working behind this app they developed it very well they really listen to feedback and it’s just so easy to use but yet it looks professional it is professional and quite possibly one of the better design website apps out there
Not worth your time.
by Holmquizzle on 2018/02/05 05:23
1. Site design is very limited. This is the kind of design that fails. Someone heard “simple is better” and got carried away. The lack of flexibility and functionality strips the resulting sites of any meaning or character. 2. The functionality is awful. There’s no tutorial and the three column block system is terribly rigid. You can’t create any other pages, so no real site content is possible – only linking to social media. Design-wise, there’s no way to resize text blocks, make blocks overlap, create simple buttons or forms, or calls to action. 3. You’re literally setting your site up for failure if you think this will meet your needs. Get onto a desktop and design a responsive site using Squarespace or Wordpress. You don’t even need a professional and it’s just as easy.
Nothing is perfect.
by Drewsiferxxx on 2021/09/01 00:10
Except for this app’s customer service department. I loved this app. Really loved it. An update came an threatened to ruin it all. Preview cards stopped working. So here’s the thing. I went to the help desk and actually got help. From calm reasonable folks who genuinely wanted to help me. Braley took a declining situation and turned it into a win in the end. Guess what. I don’t have to say “loved.” They fixed things and rewarded me for my patience and troubles. Very good work. Been a customer for a few years and will definitely stick around. Awesome app A+ service!
Thieves
by DONT DO IT TO YOURSELF PEOPLE on 2020/11/22 03:19
This company are thieves. I payed for a month subscription to test this site and I really liked the ease of use for setting up a online website. I created a site and started to get sales and fulfill my orders and they promise 2 day payouts and then suddenly change it to manually requested (basically they pay you when they want if at all) Customers complain that the payment block doesn’t take certain cards and they stop your payments and pay you when they feel like it. They alleged fraudulent transactions as an excuse keep my earnings because I was doing well in sales! Just a balance sitting in my account and I may never get paid. What a rip off and waste of time I hope someone sees this and don’t not put your money into this company!!
Good but not great
by AngeTheWanted on 2019/09/14 19:05
This is by far the cheapest way to purchase a domain and the site has simple web building features but not the most basic things like bold / italic and linking words. Instead it affects an entire block which is annoying. So this is great if you need something extremely simple but not for much more than that. Also I deleted my site with the assumption that my purchased domain would be available again but it's saying the domain still is still unavailable and I've emailed the team twice about deleting my site from the web so I could purchase the domain elsewhere but have received no response so please contact me ASAP.
Game Changing App!! 100% Customer Service too.
by hgunders on 2018/05/02 11:04
First of all the customer service is HANDs down the best and is very refreshing In today’s day in age when that’s unheard of. The developer actually reached out after download to make sure he defined the mission of the company and to make sure happiness was tied to this app. He still reaches out a year later. When I think about all of the 1000s of Apps I have downloaded (I’m obsessed with finding the most satisfying for some reason) and have thought “eh, this is good but I’m still waiting”... there’s no app I don’t credit near as much as I do this one. For the 1 star reviews, you may to squeeze a little creativity you have and it doesn’t take much with the tools they give you to create an amazing site. This app helped me gather ALL social media and websites in one hub so I wasn’t all over the place. Still the best app in my opinion!!
Stuck In Fake Pro Status!
by Liightskin_infatuation on 2019/09/07 10:04
I have raved and raved about this app. This would have got 5 stars but I have been waiting to get paid to assure that I had the money to make sure my domain was claimed and accurate. Here we are almost a Month later and I still am stuck in The TRIAL VERSION OF PRO this has been aggravating for I have a business deal to make and the .onuniverse is aggravating me for it is he weekend and I can not access support!! I need this fixed ASAP having to wait until Monday is absurb I don’t understand I can’t pressing to upgrade and I keep getting when your trail is over 🤦🏻‍♀️
Love the app
by camchristinn on 2019/01/16 21:50
I truly enjoy everything about the app, the simplicity, how easy it is, and stylish. I’m currently on the 7 day free trial and would most likely pay for pro IF you could have more options to choose from to set up your shop products. Right now there is just Shopify and I’m not going to pay and open a whole other shop just to be able to link my products. I already have a shop through Etsy, so it was a bummer to find out I couldn’t have my products on it. If there were to become more options for that I would definitely become a pro customer.
Paid for premium but can’t use premium features
by O. just O. on 2021/09/01 21:59
This is why I normally pay a month at a time for subscriptions. I figured, why not go all in on a year for this app? The price difference was enough to convince me. Then when it came time to register my domain, I get a generic error telling me to reach out to support. I try to do that in the app, and it gives me the SAME generic error. I’m now losing time on the subscription I spent a whole lot of money on because it doesn’t work. Edit: customer service is trash, this service is trash. They will not offer ANY sort of recourse for this inconvenience that I had to solve by myself because support was absolutely useless. I honestly feel taken advantage of and will be contacting Apple for a full refund.
Stunning, intuitive website creation
by Cecelia Shao on 2019/04/21 12:22
It literally took me 2 minutes to set up the website for my personal project and it looks WAY better and more modern than anything I could’ve created using another provider. The drag and drop concept is very easy and practical to use. Also love the flexibility of styling options for things like text + the array of blocks I can use. Keep up the stellar work! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a website
Universe is amazing
by erc eld on 2021/10/05 16:10
This app is the best website creator you can find. I am a designer who has used Squarespace, Cargo Collective, and even Tumblr to try and host a portfolio, and none have come even close to what I’ve been able to do in universe. A few complaints: I wish it were easier to cut/copy/paste blocks, there is no undo/redo, and no support for any fonts other than the ones it comes with. Google fonts would be nice, user fonts would be even better! Also the mac app is very laggy, even on M1 models. But for real, I can’t recommend Universe enough. Give it a shot.
Not convinced
by SavvyGina on 2018/03/14 05:03
I admit I'm a bit tougher on thingslike this because I've built a website before. I must say my account didn't come up in the initial search and I was met with message saying to email the company but there isn't a link I could click to easily and quickly email them I'd literally have to go into my email browser and type the email address free hand and I legit dont feel like I should have to work that hard at this point your product has let me down twice and won't be allowed a third. I even skimmed the reviews and noticed some mentioning false positive reviews but I will say the owners respond with I think is fantastic it shows that they are real and they do monitor their reviews. Ultimately not intetested... have a great day.
Changed Review
by BroGod708 on 2020/02/16 16:01
I felt obligated to change my review from a 1 Star to a 5 I honestly did not give the app a fair chance because I was not prepared to be charge $125 for the year. Saying that it is worth if not more with the unlimited websites your allowed to create with the easy interface you can create it easy and very good app. It 5 star quality and if your like me impatient give a another and again and ever try it again because it super simplistic and effective for your business.
Marked Increase in Spam Activity
by SongsAboutMusic on 2018/09/08 04:42
Every email address I put on these sites has seen an extraordinary increase in spam as well as sales calls since everything has to go through the phone (literally 24-48 hours after every post). T & C is extra confusing and technically isn’t even for this app (sharpest eyes will notice in the fine print that the app itself washes its hands of parent company T&C). I take special care to determine where I’m getting hit from so I can keep it away so I’m looking forward to seeing in writing as a response to this review that it’s not happening. Works well enough and customer service left nothing to be desired, but I’m going to need certain reassurances to establish actual trust at this point.
No more site developer!
by Newalla Fish Co on 2020/01/27 10:41
Here’s to Universe! I’ve never wrote a review but this app-the Universe Team behind it deserve the best i can do. Not only am I now empowered to create my website on my phone, the team always responds to my questions, however crazy and they may be. Universe brings convenience to website building-I can upload, edit and add whatever I like whenever, wherever I am. Every question I ask is addressed. I receive notes from Universe every now and then as they check in on my progress. It works for anyone. My website doesn’t appear to be the norm for their user group. I’m not an artist, musician, blogger or an IT guru. Just a regular guy running a small business who needed a website. Here’s to Universe for handing me the ability create my own website! -I downloaded nearly every self-help app this one is the one.
Feature request
by NathanV. on 2019/01/27 11:35
I think it'd be helpful if we could save drafts of the edits we make on our webpages. This would help in situations like the following: Let's say I've been working on an edit for a webpage for several hours and then all of a sudden my device dies. Losing all those edits to then have to painstakingly redo all of them would be laborious so maybe having the servers constantly save the edits in a "draft" form just in case something happens could be useful.
Amazazinngggg! And that’s not a typo
by itssyliree on 2018/02/22 22:11
I’m so in love with this app. It’s so easy to use. I created my website within minutes. They give you different layouts that you can customize. On top of that they give you the different types of domains that you can use. And it’s fairly cheap! If you aren’t looking to explode that brain of yours making a website that takes you a few minutes. Download the app and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Love you anyway
by You After Ordering on 2019/11/15 01:34
I really loved the app before the update, but I completely understand knowing your worth. I also really appreciate existing users being able to update existing tiles without needing to subscribe; you guys didn’t have to do that and if no one else says it, thank you. However, would it be possible to make videos uploaded from our phone or computer a free feature? I feel that it would really get the basics covered as far text & photo. Still, thank you for an amazing app. 🖤
BEWARE THIS SCAM
by Rifqa123 on 2020/04/11 17:12
I design websites for a living in various platforms and thought I would give this app a try thinking it might be a good way to design websites on the fly. I downloaded it around New Year’s Day played with it for a couple hours, didn’t find it as intuitive and easy as expected but figured I’d come back to it. Being the holidays I didn’t have that much time. Low behold, two days later (unlike the 1 week trial period most apps give) this app charged me for (not a month as is again common with less scammy apps) but a FULL YEAR! Within 2 hours of the charge I tried to have it reversed and was told it was impossible. Never been so pushed off by an app. Their payment model is a huge HUGE SCAM.
Great app, just problems.
by Fire alarm fan on 2019/05/24 02:16
I love this app and have been looking for an app where you can make a website quick and easy. I made a website and it worked for a while, but later I decided to look at it and there was a 404 Error pop up and the website would not load. I messaged universe and they fixed everything, but later it started happening again. So I didn’t use the app anymore till later. I went back and thought maybe they fixed the issue. But it was still happening. It was really a waste of time and I was disappointed. I hope the developers can fix this soon.
Love it
by The hamster ninja on 2018/07/12 10:23
This is perfect for me it’s simple and easy to use I’m an artist and I always wanted my own site and once I saw this I was simply blown away at how easy it was to make a really pretty page for free I would like to over lap images and buttons and such I did have one experience with a bug where an image became stuck and it was over top another image and I had to restart the app but other than that I am really loving this app
Universe
by Finessin Ant on 2020/04/18 18:03
Love the app when I first had it 2 years ago but when I finally started to go edit my website you guys literally make us pay for everything & I’m only allowed to use text or photo which is not bad but I tried to pay $10 a month & didn’t know I had to pay all the money up front which make the app hard to deal with because I’m stuck and think you guys should make it to where us the people are able to pay $10 a month just to use all the features wouldn’t care if we lost it the next month but how do you guys expect us to update our sites with just 2 features I love the app just wanted to give my opinion
simple AND effective
by mrmag83 on 2017/09/16 21:33
literally was able to build my site at 1am in the morning while half-alseep; so many sites claim to be easy but still require too much work, especially for someones who doesn't need a full, blown-out site. this is perfect for the jack-of-all-trades creative type who just needs a pretty landing page for their work to live - it's inexpensive and you'll have a domain and something up in minutes!
Perfect for my first website
by JPlo on 2018/06/07 03:34
I’m 46 and not computer savvy. I use my phone for day-to-day computing. This app is really convenient and inexpensive. The app certainly fills the gap between no website and more complex, high-end interfaces. I now have my own URL for my small business at a great price - and I truly believe that Mr. Cohen and his team will continue to improve the experience. I’m looking forward to what the future holds for this app!!
Good, but needs a few tweaks
by YoChuckDAmongUs on 2021/03/08 20:41
First of all let me say that this is actually 4.5 stars. They just don’t have an option for 4.5 stars. but anyway, this app is amazing and even though it has some Internet problems it is still worth every penny. There’s just one thing though, when you try to download a song, you get denied from the file first thing.I don’t know if it’s just an Internet problem but it really needs to be fixed.
Still needs work
by WhyIHAtethisapp on 2021/01/07 02:14
Universe is a user friendly app and a good tool build a basic website. My issue is if you have an item with multiple colors the customer has no idea what color is which. Yes they can select the color in the payment section but the color does not show on the actual picture of the item making it confusing for the end user. If they upgrade this feature I would keep my store on universe because it’s really easy to add and delete items.
Does not work. Possibly a scam.
by Ellionazul on 2020/02/13 00:44
I just downloaded this app onto my iPad Pro and to my iPhone 11 Max Pro. These two devices are fairly new and are both updated to the latest updates available and they each have a very good amount gigabytes for storage. Well, guess what? It did not work on either and instead I got “error” messages on both when I installed on one then the next and I only wanted to see how true a website builder it is/was. And it failed. I wasn’t too sold on the idea to begin with so off to app chopping block it went. DELETE!! NEXT! And I won’t be re-installing after having read the other “horrible” reviews.
Love it, and the support is absolutely amazing!
by Peelage on 2021/03/08 00:56
Being this is a startup I appreciate their dedication to supporting customers. I’m in the process of becoming a lifetime subscriber to maintain my DJ business. It is very easy to use and I look forward to some of the advanced features. I look forward to future updates and the ability to use this software on the Mac Mini M1!! Thank you for coming out with this app, it’s perfect!
