free version restriction are significant

I hate the plugin description where aren’t clarified what is in free and what in paid version. I takes time to install, test and uninstall.
With this DEMO you can’t upload near any file type (as DOC, PDF, video files…), only that WP allows by default.

Doesn't Work as Advertised

As the offer states here, “free file uploader.” Well, it isn’t really free if you expect full basic functionality. While it has a nice drag & drop UI to be added by shortcode after creating am “Arfly” post (which is beyond me as to why this can’t be accomplished with a simple plugin UI), the product simply doesn’t work as expected unless you pay.

This is not the first file upload plugin I’ve used. A simple free plugin works fine but has a more basic file upload UI so I looked at this product.

Arfly free version apparently doesn’t allow the upload to go in the media manager. You also can’t check the upload in the Arfly Media Management without paying. So you must FTP into your current month’s upload directory so to see you have new files. This isn’t a free functional plugin which one would expect like most plugins on offer. It’s simply a non-functional demo in reality.

This plugin should be deleted off The author should then figure out how to include basic functionality that actually works (like allowing the uploads to go to Media Manager) in the free version and leave more advanced features for the paid version. Getting very tired of dealing with these huckster plugin vendors.

No reply to questions and work incorrect in

I buy this plugin several weeks ago. From start I ask developer how to get the upload working only when the code is implemented within a <form>.
When this happens the upload start immediately instead of at the end of the form.
I use arfaly to give customers the possibility to upload data + files on a page. The problem with adfaly is that when you add a file as upload it is directly uploaded to the server. That is not correct.
When you use arfaly within a <form> it should wait uploading till submit is pressed/used.

I informed developer but since my question is send I never get any reply.
