Mobile swiping doesn't work as anyone would expect. Swiping left/right always slides one direction??

Not Fantastic! Anymore
By , for WP 3.5.2

I had to down-grade my review because I later found that the slider was loading multiple javascripts on EVERY page of the website even though I was only running the slider on the homepage.

I reported this to the developer a month ago and got no response...

... had to remove it and go looking for another packages there are hundreds out there and so far no luck in finding a comparable full-featured slider.

If you have unlimited resources, go for it. Otherwise, this is not the slider for you.

-----------prebious 5 star review------------
Highly customizable (very well documented) with a little extra coding or tons of options without coding (like the transition between slides).

The interface for managing the slides is top-notch.

I've been looking for several weeks for a slider that works with with a flexible layout, is easy to manage, and can quickly be integrated with my theme.

I only wish it had a carousel to preview the upcoming slides at the bottom - I hope the developer will consider this feature request for the next update.

Install it. Your slider plug-in search will end here.

Doesn't work non Multiple Slides
By , for WP 3.5.1

It works for one single slide show but the code the developer says to use for multiple slideshows doesn't work at all in 3.5.1.

Also, when you mouse over the slideshow, the image moves down and some kind of dots appear in the upper left corner. Remove the mouse and the slideshow goes back into position. Odd.

If you need multiple slideshows, I'd recommend you keep looking.
