Reviews

super plugin

hi, guys its super and lite wait plugin currently its working fine on chrome browser as well easy settings available . no doubt given 5 star rating

Hassle Free Experience

iZooto is a no-nonsense notification platform which allows for quick integration, has easy to use interface and no restriction on the number of subscribers and notifications. So far, I have not seen any other notifications platforms which give you so many features in the free version! I am satisfied with the performance and would recommend it to other website owners as well to improve the engagement with your visitors. The icing on the cake is that the support team is very prompt, helpful and responsive to communicate and get things rolling in no time.

Auto push functionality is great

The latest features specially the auto push is a great way of automating user engagement. The click through rates are amazing. Web push notifications are so much better as compared to email !
