downright awful, in every possible metric. Not even worthy of my time in explaining why it sucks so bad, since everyone else has already said it. Avoid, like the plague

Deceitful and Waste of Time
By , for WP 3.9.1

HAD to install desktop app to use.
HAD to give my email to use plugin.
Screenshots showed features available to PRO users only, and did not make clear what little features came with the free plugin.

I'm sure the paid version is great but the free version was a waste of time.

5 minutes uninstall
By , for WP 3.9.1

Sorry guys, i can see a lot of effort here, but it's in the wrong direction.

I could barely stand the long installation process (the desktop app installation, the email activation, the unrequested emails on my box), but i supposed it was all to make the slider easy to use.

It is not. Preview is not working so i have to save and exit and preview my page instead, dynamic data is not working (titles and excerpt are not displaying)

Moreover, if i want to unistall the plugin, i still have to manually unistall two different apps from my desktop.

Sorry guys, not for me.

Awful

This plugin sucks big time. $20 bucks for a Pro Version that you CAN'T use? Get out of here.

Needs additional Adobe SW!
By , for WP 3.9

Unfortunately it's not stated so clearly in the Installation Tab... therefore and because of Adobe SW not recommended!

Have to install a local app?
By , for WP 3.8.1

WordPress already has an excellent media management tool, but someone decided to reinvent the wheel. A desktop apps to accomplish web-based publishing is so backwards it makes me wonder who thought that was a good idea. It's the 21st century and has been for some time...

Installing a local app? Really? Plus - no Linux ??
By , for WP 3.8.1

The sliders look nice, but the fact that you need to install an application on a local machine is a deal breaker. I like to keep my WordPress installs at my SERVER, thank you very much!

Add to this that I work most of the time on Linux desktops, which means that even if I wanted to, I can't install the app, since it's only Win and OSX.

Next!

Too Bad It's a Nightmare to Install
By , for WP 3.8

This looked like the perfect slider plugin, but it requires installing Adobe Air on my PC, agreeing to Adobe terms, etc. before using (between that and my firewall warnings, installation ended up taking ten minutes), then it required entering my name and email address. After that, I still kept getting popups to update Adobe Air.

Imagine how challenging it would be to build and maintain WordPress websites if all plugins were this time-consuming and intrusive to use.

No thanks--uninstalled and unimpressed.

Have to download desktop app bef u can use it
By , for WP 3.7.1

Whats with that??!! No clients of mine will take the risk of that API rubbish. Dont know of a single other professional plugin that requires such a thing just for a simple slideshow.

Excellent marketing - poor delivery.

Such a pity

Garbage
By , for WP 3.7.1

Unfortunately that Adobe stuff required for this plugin doesn't work at all on Safari / Chrome so was useless :(
