Annoying commercial crapware
By , for WP 4.3.1

Terrible plugin. It's extremly annoying in the backend.
So commercial it's disgusting. Everytime it updates you have to visit their plugin settings, just because they try to make you pay.

Enough great alternatives, please don't pay for this crapware!

Another pay per "premium" mediocre plugin

no thanks

Everything useful is behind a paywall
By , for WP 4.1.1

Absolutely no customization available in the free version. The makers of this plugin may want to consider that if a plugin is obviously going to be useless while free, I am not likely to buy or use it at all.

Very Limited Icons Selections
By , for WP 4.0.1

Only has about 8 icons. I guess you have to buy the pro version to get something useful.

Too "aggro"
By ,

Might have been a good plug-in, but was just too "aggro" with the bright green bar on the left and the turqoise on the plug-ins page. Feels like something is being forced upon. I mean it's a simple social media icon plug-in, not even anything special, and definitely not worth being annoyed every time I need to update my site by the bright colors.

Thanks anyway, but will use something less loud.

Intrusive Advertising
By , for WP 3.8

Deleted because I didn't feel like looking at the bright green bar on the left side of the WP dashboard every time I'm editing my site--not to mention all of the in-your-face ads on the plugin configuration page. If all developers configured their plugins this way, the WP dashboard would be a nightmare.

Nope.
By , for WP 3.6

have to pay a high price for what you really need. plenty of free ones out there that work great.

Removed it as soon as i installed it.
By , for WP 3.4.2

deleted it after menu taken over by green icons and flashing alerts telling me to upgrade. Very un-wordpress. Didnt even wait to test it out.

Demo before upsell folks
By , for WP 3.4.2

This plugin may work fantastic, but the developer is pushing way too hard for the upgrade.

How on earth can I make a spending decision with so few basic features?

Let users try the full functionality with their themes before the obnoxious sales pitch... just my .02
