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.

Very Pleased with
By , for WP 3.7.1

Migrating from WP.com to a hosted blog so very happy to get many of the same features there. Was a little surprised a few components were on without asking and gave no choice.

I was also disappointed the RRS feed subscription and email subscription had different features and looks considering they're often placed together. The email one only offers an image caption, not a text link like the RSS. eh??

I also found the Widget Visibility bit either doesn't work correctly or is non-intuitive.

But overall, lots of great additions. Thanks!

EXCELLENT customer service
By , for WP 3.7.1

"Publicize" could be improved a bit in order to achieve perfection. It seems to be buggy now and then. Plus an easier solution to customize and properly align icons would be nice.

Jetpack does seem to make my website significantly slower, but installing all these important plugins separately, by separate developers would probably do the same. (?)

EXCELLENT customer service and quick and thorough response. They even provided solutions for a bug that came from my host and not their plugin.

Плагин хороший, но...
By , for WP 3.6.1

Плагин очень хороший и насыщенный. И к нему очень много дополнений. Но он намертво привязан к сайту wordpress.com , отклик от которого иногда приходится ждать минутами. Установил, попользовался и с сожалением отключил, потому что ждать полной загрузки сайта, которую тормозит этот плагин, никто не будет. Да и сам плагин не рекордсмен по скорости загрузки, надо сказать честно.
Если вас это не пугает - вперед, к приключениям.

I like it...
By , for WP 3.6

Wished everything came deactivated upon fresh install though. Otherwise, I think it's smart to roll so much cool stuff into one Automattic maintained plugin.

Pretty good but could be improved...
By , for WP 3.5.2

Jetpack is a pretty good plugin with lots of options but there are things that could be much easier and quicker... activation is one of them...
Jetpack gives you a lot of options to "play" with, which can make your work with WordPress much easier and your website much better, however, there is still room for improvements, which I hope to see in new versions...
Anyway, keep up the good work! :-)

Comes with many essential functions
By , for WP 3.5.2

I love this plugin, which is sort of like a Swiss Army Knife for WordPress-powered sites. Just like a Swiss Army Knife though, sometimes there are tools in there that you won't be using often, if at all. It's a bit of a bother disabling the ones you don't require. But that's a very small blemish on an otherwise stellar plugin. Thank you for all of your hard work! (^___^)
