Great Performance, Solid Support

The plugin has exceeded my expectations. It's simple, and relatively easy to use. I am not a professional web-developer, but I'm very happy with the results. There was a glitch in the implementation on my site, that support diligently helped me work through and solve.

Very nice plugin

This calendar plugin really deserves giving a try. I initially was planning to demonstrate future events on my website and I am really satisfied with the results I got. Works really nice, especially like the repeat option and love the design as well.
