Works fine but NAG NAG NAG
By , for WP 4.5

It nags me to upgrade for a site that I donate to nonprofit work. It never did this in the past. It advertises as a free plugin. If you don't want to upgrade then you should be able to x it out, you can't even x out the nag, it sits at the top of your dashboard and you can't get rid of it.
It is also needlessly complex with API rules for static and mobile map. Could be Google's doing but still a pain.

Stop the nagging
By , for WP 4.4.2

This is a great plugin and does everything it is supposed to do. BUT....
Stop the nagging. I installed this on a development site and accepted the Pro Trial. When the Pro Trial ran out I could not stop the nagging for upgrading to Pro or submitting a review. I finally disabled the plugin as it was not a live site. If the site goes live, I will reinstall the plugin from scratch. The nagging was not helpful.

I'm not a little disappointed

With these improvements, the plugin would be nice

Easy install

The on page image only shows an area location, not until you click for the larger image do you get the exact location. Not sure how much is down to Google!

Nice But So Many Updates
By , for WP 4.1

For such a simple plugin there are a disturbing number of updates. Don't get me wrong I'd much rather they keep it up to date then have an out of date plugin. However, there is at least one a week some of them untested as they require an immediate update to fix silly mistakes. Also when you review the version history you find some rather vulgar entries.

Great widget ... but
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've had no problems with getting the widget to work - which is great - BUT:
It doesn't appear to be responsive. There are issues with the map being on the bottom and right sidebar widgets - when the page is resized the widget overlaps the confines of the page (or other widgets).

Other than that, great work!
