Simple and Does the Job Sweetly

I found it via a simple google search while looking for simple subscribe forms, I wasn’t expecting it will be simple and neat.

I would have given it 5 stars if It had some more templates, hover on button should have had a hand or some trigger and especially if it didn’t have a tiny lag after submitting the form.

Having said all of that it doesn’t make it less than good at all… I am still using it and it’s very much worth a try.

Excellent Plugin

Works great, although I’ve had a couple of issues the support was really quick and they even sent a file fix whilst working on an update!

Who needs Mailchimp !!!

5 Stars !!

Good Plugin

This is a solid plugin that works effectively to obtain information from your site’s visitors

Great Free Form Builder!

One of the best FREE form builders I could find. Other form builders are as nice or nicer IF you pay extra for them.
