Reviews

Functionality and support

Offers a lot of features and has active and friendly support. It is perfect tool for small businesses like mine. Great job guys!

One of the nicest designs I’ve seen in WP

I was looking around for a solution for a clients home services website, and stumbled upon this one. Always a bit sceptical about Lite versions as usually these tend to be almost nonfunctional demos of commercial products, decided to give it a try and was quite surprised to see the user interface of this plugin: it is not a typical WP add on with some meta boxes, drop downs and checkboxes, as I expected, it reminds more of a mobile app and at times I even forget I am in WP environment, because it looks so slick works so smooth. Did not investigate the functionalities in all the details just yet, so far didn't bounce into any annoying trial limitations, but quite likely to be purchasing the full version soon, as I would like to support the development of this product - that's how I would like WordPress to be. One minor problem that I noticed so far - there seems to be some issue with night shifts, and appointments that fall on midnight. Not a deal breaker, but we need these too, hopefully this will be resolved soon.
