Shopify Apps are a great way to add advanced or speciality features to your store that aren't possible using the basic Shopify platform — and used correctly they can be help grow your business.
Store owners should be cautious, however, of installing too many apps.
Because Shopify apps are develop by third parties, Out of the Sandbox cannot provide installation, setup or uninstallation support for any apps.
The apps listed below are suggested for Out of the Sandbox users because the app developers have made extra efforts to ensure their apps are compatible with Out of the Sandbox themes. In some cases, installing a particular app may require some small changes that the app developer can assist with.
Please note, however, that recent changes to themes, apps or other code may cause compatibility issues and Out of the Sandbox cannot guarantee that any app listed here will work. If you experience issues with an app, please contact the app developer. All app related support injuries sent to Out of the Sandbox will be referred to the app developer.
If, after working with the app developer, you find significant issues with an app listed here, we welcome your feedback and may remove apps that do not continue to support Out of the Sandbox themes.
Out of the Sandbox is unable to provide recommendations or suggestions for apps other than the ones listed here. Before using any app, including the ones listed here, it is always a good idea to reach out to the app developer to verify compatibility with your theme and discuss any extra steps that may be needed.
