Perfect
By , for WP 3.8.2

Read Yoast's guide on integrating Gravity Forms to realise the greatness of this plugin.

It has a paid limitation on assigning role capabilities to custom post types which can be partially fulfilled with http://wordpress.org/plugins/map-cap/

Great but many-to-many relationship...
By , for WP 3.7.1

Great plugin, I love to use it. To be a complete solution it lacks support for many-to-many relationship between posts. Yes, I know about creating intermediate post type but I think it should be more convenient for user to manage.
There are also some issues with repeatable fields in related posts.

Helps do the job
By , for WP 3.6.1

Been using it for a couple of years and it's fantastic. Only missing relational types and new input fields like colour pickers and so on, that other similar plugins do have (like advanced custom fields).

Could be a bit more visually polished
By , for WP 3.5.2

I don't find this plugin to be quite as polished and user-friendly as I'd like (it'd be brilliant if the style really merged properly into the native WordPress look) but those are small bug bears.

I've tried a couple of types plugins and the power and ease of use of this are unmatched. Really helped me put my site together. Thanks

parent - child feature is not capable enough
By , for WP 3.4.2

After 2 days of testing I have decided that Types is not suitable for the kind of websites I have in mind. The deficiency is the parent child feature is not powerful enough to properly implement other kinds of relationships that entities may have. This is something that Pods with is Pick feature and Magic Fields with its "Related Type" feature does very easily. This is regrettable as Types is quite a good plugin and with respect to documentation vastly superior to Pods and Magic Fields and with respect to stability superior to Pods.
