Reviews

Easy, Easy!

Just as advertised! Easy to use, comes with a sample slideshow for reference and several out of the box nice looking templates. Use normal WP editor to add text and links to slides.

Only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5-star rating is that I don’t care for the shadow on the navigation arrows when hovering over the pictures, and the coding could use a little fine tuning for a better view on portrait view on smaller devices. Otherwise, a first-rate product.
