A superb free functionality but not user friendly to handle
By , for WP 3.5.2

You got a Wow effect when this is in action. And for free you got a asome slider toy. But the upload plugin, install local softaware, upload slider again and paste shortcodes and ... sucks.

There are better and more useful sliders out there if your project or customers gonna be able to use it.

Too Difficult

This is too difficult for normal people to use!

It looks nice though.

Useless, complete waste of time
By , for WP 3.5.1

Wasted time downloading and installing the program, the interface is pathetic, and then I find out I'm stuck with their stupid watermark unless I pay.
Couldn't find a decent, plain template. Definitely wouldn't spend money on this, will use one of the better and FREE plugins that do the same job BETTER.

OK but not very customisable
By , for WP 3.5.1

I guess it's OK as it's free!

However, it prides itself of not requiring any coding knowledge, but then to do anything you have to sift through painful folders to find the code to change. And all for something as simple as changing the font size.

On the 'responsive' side it may change the image sizes, but it doesn't do anything to the buttons or text, so they take over when viewing on a mobile device.

Not really a wordpress plugin
By ,

This plugin just displays slideshows generated with the windows dektop programm "WOW Slider". It does not work with images stored within a wordpress installation, instead you have to work with images stored on a local desktop computer. You then have to upload the whole slideshow including javascript, css and images to your wordpress installation.

Although the generated slideshows are lean for itself, they do not integrate very well into wordpress. There is no way to edit a generated slideshow within wordpress and there is no way to prevent the plugin from loading its own css file.
