A Full Review

This plugin uses shortcodes, which you will need to insert into your site. If you build using widgets with a frontend editor then I recommend using a shortcode widget insert plugin.

As for the buttons themselves, they work on both desktop and mobile devices very nicely. (Although an option to make them bigger would be nice for desktop). I mainly got this for mobile user interface, and it works to ordinary reduce menu clutter and aim for that fresh minimual mobile design.

The free version is pretty simple, alot of the cool (Pro) features are rendered out but even so the free version can be made to look professional and is perfectly functional as a menu.

Conclusion – If you’re looking for something to spice up your website on both desktop and mobile interfaces then this works. Use the free version, play around a bit and then if you like it I’d recommend getting those extra features if you need them.

I will add a link in this review after I’ve finished my website so you guys can see how these buttons work etc.

Note: It seems to display site wide, but sometimes will hang at the bottom and not scroll with your screen IF you do not add the shortcode to each page (I believe). I need to test it more tbh. Anyway, hope this helps.

Edit: This was an issue with another mobile interface plugin, works as expected without it.

Looks Good

looks good, but have problem on hover ask support and no reply for 1 days.

not much setting u can play with

i will update review if support can fix this.

Just works

After testing dozens of menu plugins this is the first that “just works”. Is it really so hard to program a plugin properly? Anyways cudos to a great plugin that’s easy to use and looks good too.
