Many things, many issues
By , for WP 3.8.1

Many issues because of, I think, too many things together...

Use this plugin
By ,

This should be one of the very first plugins that you use. It adds a ton of features that are exclusive to wordpress.com.

The best feature for me personally is the auto publish feature, it saves so much time, but a quick tip, link your Facebook page (not profile) to a twitter feed and you can then use Facebook to auto publish to both networks.

Works Great
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works great. I currently use the Post by Email, Publicize, and the Post forms functions. They simplify these task and make it easy of beginners to use the functions.

Doesn't Seem to Play Well with SSL
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin does not seem to work with SSL. I have WordPress HTTPS Version 3.3.6 installed and as near as I can tell, whenever the part of this plugin controlling comments tries to connect to WordPress.com, it does so insecurely. The return from this then fails (I would guess the HTTPS code views it as an injection from a non-secure location) which causes the comment to not submit.

I also have a problem with the Plugin showing up on a generic site users Dashboard. All of those different things to click on plus a WordPress.com login bar. I have to believe that would be extremely confusing to a generic user.

I've had to deactivate this plugin in order to keep my site working under SSL.

quite good for project
By , for WP 3.8

I use the plugin for a number of different reasons on different projects It provides an extremely easy user interface to carry out a number of different tasks that would otherwise take a lot more time to set up if it was all done my individual plugins.

A really great plugin I think for beginners such as myself.

One element I would like to see introduced if possible is an autoresponder to the pack!!!!!!!!

Lifesaver
By ,

The only way they could make Jetpack better is if it had a fully automated "Import Everything from WP.com" module that handled all your site content, followers, and stats. Getting content imported was a pain to say the least, but once that was done, Jetpack helps you replicate many if not all of the features that one may have been using on their WP.com site. Just contacted support to get the email followers transferred, and hopefully stats and anything else they can move as well. :)

Minor Annoyances
By , for WP 3.8.1

How do you rate a plugin as multifunctioned as Jetpack?

It nears perfection, but there are plenty of minor annoyances that continually chaff at you. Minor things, little things that feel like shortcuts or placeholders that turn a five minute job into an hour-long search.

One of those burrs that got stuck in my sock was the html code the Sharing module injects for custom services. It inserts inline CSS, setting the background image to the required icon.

<span style="background-image:url("http://flattr.com/_img/icons/flattr_logo_16.png");">Flattr</span>

Inline CSS. Sigh.

My text-only Sharing buttons were being trailed by a monstrosity—a tiling blob over which you couldn't read the text. I was shocked, I tell you, Shocked!

And now I have this ugly additional override in my child-theme CSS. Sitting there, all ugly and mean and sloppy.

li.share-custom span {
	background-image: none !important;
	}

And it's just stuck there in my sock rubbing at blisters for the rest of my life.

And, also, it seems like I can only make one custom service, which is kinda lame.

Jetpack has multiple features, many of them near perfection, but since I can't give fractional stars, and near-perfection is not perfection, I have to give a solid four stars.

Use Jetpack, and be prepared to be annoyed.

Would be great if it didn't disable post editing
By , for WP 3.8.1

For some odd reason, when I connect Jetpack to wordpress.com, it totally disables my ability to edit posts which is ridiculous. I'm unable to view or edit html (button doesn't work) and I'm unable to add hyperlinks. Anyone know why? Once I deactivate, I'm able to do everything as usual. Totally bummed because I was excited about this.
