I needed help about an issue I had implementing the plugin for a client... I've never experienced such a fast and qualified support, problem solved in less than 5 minutes!!! (and no, it wasn't an easy task). That's how you earn the trust of the potential buyer. Congratulations Max, you're really the best.

I never made it work well. Too complicated without descriptions! Markers! did not work. Plugin complete chaos here!

First I had some issues with CORS server set up but now everything works fine. Really fast and helpful support! I can really recommend.

at first glance this plugin looks and works well, seemingly great value. but lack of prompt support with a requirement for cylindrical projection images. commercial requirements forced me to dump this over another plugin with helpful and prompt support. a shame. i now have purchased a plugin that i wont use and seemingly not fit for purpose.
