Really bad – They send spam!

As soon as I installed it I started receiving unsolicited email messages from people claiming to be web designers, SEO masters etc… I’ve already received dozens of emails, that I’ve nevere had before.


Wonderful plugin!

This is a very great app, it lets you customize almost everything, down to the font and font-size (a shameful lack in other under maintenance plugins), add your logo and customize the logo that shows up in the browser tap. All in all it gives your under construction page a very smooth and professional look, which was exactly what I was going for! Highly recommended.
Also their help is fast, friendly and endlessly patient. Very great plugin!

Does what it is supposed

The plugin provides all what a simple coming soon/maintenance mode plugin is supposed to offer. Simple nice design, mail subscribe and various settings to change the behavior. The only thing which isn’t included by default is a contact form which could be something what user is looking for.

One of the only fgood ones out there

I installed a few “Coming soon” plugins before this, including the top downloaded ones. This one is the one I’ll be using, because it offers a lot of integrations and a beautiful page out-of-the-box, and the other ones have to pay to have the same quality.

Easy in use and customize

For me it has every piece of content I needed. Thumbs up for integration with mailchimp.

Customizing it was easy and option to add custom html and css helped me a lot.
