Avoid it if you don't want to waste your time
By , for WP 3.7.1


I don't usually leave review, I just vote but this plugin sucks so much that made me do it so you don't waste your time too!

1. You need the plugin (nothing wrong here).
2. You need a software.
3. You need to create the slider in the software.
4. You need to upload it via plugin.
5. After all this you realize that all the images get watermarked with wowslider. ROFL!
6. You have to place the code manually where you want to display it.
7. Some effects are bugged when you go live, buttons don't show right + no title.
8. Overall it sucks, you better get a simple slider plugin w/o needing a software. Just upload images directly and display the slider with the effects you want.

unusable, has ads.
By , for WP 3.6

has ads ruining slider.
Many effects and options, but only in windows/MAC Software which you need to build a slider, then upload and test. if yu wanna change a little part you should go through all this process again!
Usability is lowest.

I never log on my wordpress account here, but today I did .. just to make sure these guys are getting a 1 star rating extra from an unsatisfied user.

To make a slide you first have to download and install their crappy app on your pc (Why not via wordpress?), of course after giving them your email address so they can spam you with stuff you're probably not interested in.
Not even going to mention that annoying Wowslider.com credit line on the bottom that isn't removable unless you pay for a premium or whatever service. (Oh, I guess I just did mention it :))

Can't even upload images
By , for WP 3.5.2

Couldn't even upload images. Tried zipping them as suggested, still no luck. If it takes longer than a few minutes to set up a simple slider... UNINSTALL. NEXT.

bad installation
By , for WP 3.6

This seems to be a good plugin but really, why do you need to install a software on your PC just to "create slides".. It would have been better if you can just do this all on your wordpress site.

WOWslider is Not Fully 'Responsive'
By , for WP 3.5.2

The slider works well when viewed in standard desktop browser. It does not display well on a smartphone.

2) Seen on Desktop IMAGE

The text on the slider when viewed on the smartphone is simply too big. This is not a good plugin if you have mobile customers.
