3.7 out of 5 stars
Buggy
By , for WP 4.3

I wasn't going to bother reviewing this plugin. I was simply going to de-activate it and move on.

The bug in question was that it imported my google+ posts as desired, but did so in an infinite loop - filling my database.

Once I had gone through de-activating, and then moving all the duplicate items to trash I thought I was done.

But now is when I put the review in. My database is full, and I can't even empty the trash now. So now I'm going to have to go through a full database restore - or full site database rebuild somehow.

That ... is when it's time to review - and tell people to AVOID INSTALLING THIS DAMNED PLUGIN

Until all ok

I test since two week and all is ok!

Errors. Supportless. naggers.
By , for WP 4.1.1

As we have with several of their plugins, Installed the "free" version.
the plugin had problems. Got API errors and crashes. No Support. As usual with their stuff, A nag bar/screen nags you to death - and their prices, for a plugin, are ridiculous.

I strongly suspect that some of the 5 star ratings are faked, or lets say, severely biased due to financial interest. (Same people giving same short "amazing" review on ALL. So we are leaving our own on the ones we tested/used)

poor support

What were you thinking?
By , for WP 4.0.1

How can you possibly screw this up so badly?

What was your actual goals in writing this plugin?

Awesome - but needs different post statuses
By , for WP 4.0

I love this plugin. The only thing I want with it is different post statuses, so that imported posts from G+ won't be published until I decide they should be.

Broke the site
By , for WP 4.0

Deleted this plugin because the developers managed to make it crash the site with a "Fatal error: Class 'apiAuth' not found in /home/******/public_html/wp-content/plugins/google/lib/external/google/auth/apiAuthNone.php on line 24"

Test your plugins first people.
