Doesn't work - doesn't upload
By , for WP 4.4.2

It gave a warning when I didn't have permissions configured properly, which was good, and there was a help page that enabled me to work through the process of setting up a policy to get it right.

But it doesn't upload to S3 and doesn't change the URL of the uploaded media. There is no message saying it wasn't able to upload. There is no information about how to troubleshoot, and there doesn't appear to be a prospect of getting any.

This sort of thing CAN work. A few years ago I had success with an earlier version or different plugin that did the same thing, I'm not sure which. But this one isn't working. I'm doing it with a simple, test installation to avoid other plugins that might complicate or interfere.

Pay first , try later.

Nope. I don't recommend.
If you have an issue and are trying this plugin out to see if it's even a good fit for your site, you get no support period... unless some other user has pity on you and provides some feedback.

I have a problem of new uploaded media not showing up on S3 bucket (something the FREE version is supposed to do). I followed all the steps in his quick start guide and it doesn't work, yet he wants me to pay at least $60 dollars (lowest pro version cost) to find out why a free feature doesn't work.

Failed badly
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin may possibly be OK however the developer has not included adequate documentation on how to get this working.
I have not the time or energy to spend any more time than the 2 hours I have wasted so far today in giving this plugin a fair go. I would not recommend the plugin until the developer decides to throw a few scraps of documentation to us poor peasants.

Stange

Be carefull two people in my class used it and had in the day unauthorized usage on her account. I have 1000$ bills because of it.

Broken in latest WP 3.8
By , for WP 3.8.1

Sadly, this seems to be broken in the latest WordPress version. There's a support thread about it here, but no sign of the developer:

Does anyone have recommendations for a different plugin that will work?
