I've enjoyed using Shape on several side projects. It's been an incredibly helpful resource and has saved me so much time. There are a lot of well-designed icons and for small non-commercial projects, being able to use the free png export is nice.

Review of Shape.so
Still feels like an Alpha product, a stretch for early access. User flow to sign up needs improving. > Stripe Checkout > Purchase thanks you > Then sends you to login screen > You get stuck > You then check emails to see they sent you a one time password but this is not clear, then you can login. Upon buying the pro edition you gain access to. 990 static icons. 25 animated icons. 352 static illustrations. 51 animated illustrations. I feel it is misleading to talk about the 1350 items in the store considering the website leads with animation heavily. The code embeds for JSON, SVG and so on along with the customisation is positive. Long load times on the hosting, the app is very slow, 10-15 seconds. Granted I am based in the UK but still, for a SaaS app the performance could be much improved. The landing page also could be improved: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/shape.so/iaibomKC Much of the UI has glitches, including a triple scroll bar on the side, buttons go into code boxes and it feels a little yikes. Very basic items not quite ready for a 1.0 release. https://imgur.com/a/5DnWQFw Has potential, one to watch but I would wait 6 months perhaps.

Review of Shape.so
Hi Meng, - just purchased the access. these are really cool icons and illustrations - a great library. As a UX designer - I completely appreciate your teams hard work in getting the resources ready! Kudos to them. On the side lines - It would be great if you could build in graphics elements which can also be used for explainer walk throughs or videos - this is one of the use case for these kind of illustrations. I also use https://undraw.co/ - they are also a great resource for illustrations. Thanks and my best compliments for the success of your app - will be looking forward for more updates in the app. Abhi
