‘Bait and Switch’ much?

I’ve added many apps and this app is anything but ‘Easy’. More like ‘bait and switch’! You can’t put up a widget to create a form that your viewers can use to post a review unless you PAY (upgrade to ‘pro’) first…before you even know if the plugin will work for you. If you wanted money up-front, why didn’t you just say so at the beginning so people don’t have to waste their time going through all this. We won’t be ‘upgrade to pro’ unless we know how the plugin works first. Rubbish plugin!!!!

All round first class plugin and developer

I’ve been using this plugin for a while now. It is very c=versatile and does a great job. In the first week I had a problem with CSS and the technical support was prompt and effective. Since then I’ve suggested an enhancement and lo and behold it’s there! Well done.


These guys, Richard in particular, are amazing. They know their product and how to support it. Richard responds quickly and seems to have a solution for anything you can throw at him. If you need a testimonial solution, these are your guys.

Best one we could find

I tested perhaps a dozen testimonial / random quote plugins before I found this one. It was by far the best one overall. It was easy to install, had a good feature set, and… surprise surprise… it worked! Save yourself hours of time and just go with this one.
