Good and bad
By , for WP 4.2.2

Worked for creating the Child Theme, but the theme editor, when I used it to duplicate some files...my host flagged questionable site "injections", and they shut down my site due to risk. :(

...so some of it may be a good idea/option on self-hosted, but beware if you are not self-hosted.

good, except it messes up my mobile nav
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've used this twice on my websites, and while it does create nice child themes, it often messes with the header.php files in both the child and parent theme. Both websites that had this problem had their responsive navigation menu classes changed, leading to extra work and excess development.

It does do a decent job of creating a child theme, but you're probably safer just doing it yourself.
