I have been a customer for some time and absolutely depend on this plugin to keep news on my site. Customer support is exceptional and highly recommend their service for a digital signage or mobile apps. They exceeded my expectations in every way.

Great quality plugin and news

Super plugin. We had other news plugins and sources but always found them to be limited. This has everything we need need and more. Support was responsive and helpful. Guiding me through the process to setup and customize this Well worth the money.

Helpful tip: Most of the automatic emails from them went to our spam folder. Check there if you don’t get any emails.
