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.

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
