We've been working on revamping these pages to make it easier for you to get all the important info about your favorite apps and to help you stay updated, all while also making it easier for you to contribute on it! Here are some of the highlights you'll spot right away:
  • New Header: Now you can see all the essential info about each app at a glance. This section includes the app name, icon, a short and concise description, license models, app types, and available platforms. You'll also find all user-added screenshots conveniently on the right side, along with quick access to the list of available alternatives.
  • New App Action Bar and Contribute Menu: This is where you can view key statistics and interact with the app’s features on AlternativeTo, including ratings, likes, comments, the number of alternatives, and related news articles. There’s also a new Contribute button with a dropdown menu, allowing users to help update and improve the app page information. We’ve highlighted these contribution actions with a soft purple color to make them easy to spot all across the site.
  • Features & Tags: Quickly check out the app’s main features and related tags to find similar apps. You will also be able to suggest and vote on features here.
  • New App Activity Feed: This is where things get interesting! We've added this new section so you can stay updated with the most recent activities on each app page, including its latest news, user reviews, likes, and even new apps added as alternatives. This way, you can see how the community interacts with the app in real-time. We’ve got some exciting plans and surprises coming to this section, so keep an eye out!
  • App General Information & Comments: Find detailed info on the right side of the app activity feed, including the longer app description, videos, official links (website, app stores, social networks), and the detailed app summary. Adjacent to this is the comments and reviews section, where you can find feedback and see what other users are saying.
  • Improved mobile/tablet experience: You'll notice a significant improvement in mobile view, with smoother access to screenshots, more efficient data categorization for swift access to crucial app details, a clear and easy-to-follow news & activities log, heightened visibility in interaction and contribution actions, and much more!
