Shortstack is a powerful tool to build interactive pages for Facebook apps etc, with widgets and templates covering many of the popular interactive mechanics, with quite a room for customization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a bit outdated, sometimes it is hard to figure out how exactly something should assembled together from the available building bricks to get the result you need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We ran a whole range of lead capture and engagement campaigns and I see the key advantage in being able to quickly put together an interactive page without requiring support from the tech team or outside agency Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Some of the templates are great. It's simple to use, and cost-effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really wish there were more quiz options. That's what we'd really like to use ShortStack for, but the current templates are not useful to us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Shortstack is the only tool I've used for Facebook campaign and I like what I can do with it (made an advent calendar last year) which was very successful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It was a big hassle to get to that point. It's a very complex piece of software to program and the workflow isn't always intuitive. It left me with a few customer grievances, unfortunately. Doors opening at the wrong time and people missing out on offers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please make sure you have someone reasonably tech savvy if you intend to do clever stuff like timed releases etc. The interface can be daunting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Until we started using Shortstack we hadn't really done any capturing of marketing data on Facebook and we added about 7,000 leads to our Mailchimp database through the advent calendar. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
