Shopify covers the basics every business needs. For everything else, there are apps. Apps give you the flexibility to pick and choose how you customize your store—from adding customer reviews to displaying pop-up messages. A good app can even help you streamline how you do business.

But what makes an app “good”? Not only should it deliver what it promises, a high-quality app should also be:

    • Fast
    • Safe
    • Reliable
    • Easy to use

    Shopify measures these qualities using its extensive commerce experience, and by listening to feedback from millions of merchants like you.

    Easy-to-use can be hard to measure, so Shopify created the App Design Guidelines. These guidelines show developers how to create a clear, usable, and accessible experience that’s streamlined with the rest of the Shopify admin. Because when apps are easy to use, you can focus on what matters most—selling.

    Ahead are a selection of top apps that meet Shopify’s App Design Guidelines.
