Good for some things, not for others
By , for WP 4.0

Seems like a decent plugin, with some good configurable features. But the image quality was very poor, and I could not find any of the themes that would actually work on a site with a darker background theme. Once on a dark background, it was obvious the icons were all copied/cut from somewhere with a white background and were not properly transparent around the edges.

Also, it would be nice to have the ability to add Instagram (or any icon that I choose) by uploading an image file and providing a URL. But that's more a feature request than an actual "problem" with the plugin.

good
By , for WP 3.8.3

Need More options for handling thumb images, for adding hover effects.

Thumbs not appearing under Browsers for Windows (ie, Safari, Mozilla..).

More work to be done

Poor icon quality
By , for WP 3.7.1

Well the plugin is wonderful at first. But the icons have a very poor quality. I use a darkend theme and these Icons could be used if they were better cropped and if they are from better quality.

My rating is based on the idea of the plugin. It's a good concept. But the quality lowers the rating from 5 to 3 stars.

Low Quality images
By , for WP 3.5.1

I chose this plugin first and once I saw the quality of the icons provided with the free version, decided to pass. Very poor quality images.

Otherwise, nice functionality.
