Reviews

Easy2Maps

Does everything I need, and more. Simple to use and quite intuitive

Great Plugin, need responsive tweaks

This is a great and simple plugin to drop and customize pins on a Google map. It’s intuitive and easy to setup. That being said it does need some responsive tweaks and the API key process is god awful annoying but the API issue it not strictly the plugin’s fault. I would still recommend this plugin.

Does the job

Thanks for a really nice plugin. I see that a lot of options are available only in the pro version. Would be nice to have a bit more customization options for the markers. None the less, very useful. But, limited in customizations. I guess the idea behind this one is to use the Pro version.
