We needed a way to organize events from many different places and this was perfect. Now we have sites on autopilot! I also contact support and they responded accurately within a few hours. Amazing! Highly recommend this. ~Steve

Almost bit the bullet and wrote this myself, was very pleased to see someone already made a great importer already. I've emailed them twice about suggestions/updates/questions, they respond very quickly.

The plugin is awesome and if you have any trouble in the installation or any functionality, then support is awesome. Ask them all your issues they will solve it.

Events are neither added as posts nor added to preexisting calendars. The additional calendar added with the plugin also looks awful. This is hard to integrate well.
