I’ve used Social Warfare for close to three years. It was great in the beginning. Love the design and plenty of useful features. Did everything it needed to without issues.
But at some point, they started to make some decisions that were not customer-focused, such as having to use two plugins to run the pro version, which had to be the same version or things would break. They switched payments systems, which cancelled my automatic payment. For some reason it stopped being possible to update the plugin from wordpress, so you have to login to their site, download the latest version and install manually.
The real dealbreaker are all the technical issues. There were small things like a license key that kept unregistering or certain social networks randomly not showing. The updates have been very unstable for the last year or so. It got to the point where I dreaded every update because chances were things would break (not just plugin functionality – I’m talking white screen of death). Generally, I’d wait a week for the development team to push out a couple of hot fixes, before summoning the courage to update. After not updating for two months for these reasons, I switched to Social Pug, which seems great so far.
Three stars because it’s good when it works. But I wouldn’t recommend as it is.
