The help pages on AlfredApp.com are very … err… helpful, and it would be great if it were possible to link to subsections within all of them, rather than only to the page itself. For example, the File Search page has anchors for its various subsections, so you can link directly to "File Search", "File Navigation" etc., but the Using Variables in Workflows page doesn't. The Workflow Environment Variable panel is (as previously mentioned) a mystery to a lot of users. Rather than having to explain it in every README to avoid the inevitable "how do I set these variables?" questions, it would be very helpful to be able to link directly to the "Setting Workflow Environment Variables" section.
I had a really bad user experience upgrading to Alfred v2. It feels that with the (totally understandable) excitement and workload involved with version 2 you lost the sight of the user experience for existing users. Some examples - I did not receive any upgrade notice by mail nor within Alfred, I only learned about it because I follow Alfred on twitter. When I went to Alfredapp.com site, I couldn't find any "Upgrade Alfred!" notice on the front page, or any text or link targeting existing users for that matter. When I installed Alfred v2 (Which does not work for me btw, posted a bug report about that) I did not get an "Upgrade Powerpack" notice and learned that I need to upgrade only after trying to enter my old Powerpack license key. When I encountered some upgrade problems I expected to have a direct support link for paying customers in the support section but couldn't find any. Now that I released some steam I just want to say that I use Alfred since forever, from the days it was a pet project and I love it. I can't imagine working on a Mac without Alfred, it's the first app I install on Mac newbies computers' and I guess that as long I'll be using a Mac it will be the first app I install. Just writing this because Alfred is an example of good UX for me, and it hurts a bit to see it fail in that area.
