Amazing Support
By , for WP 3.8.1

Tried the free version for a couple days and loved it and instantly upgraded. Had a couple questions and the support was fast! Seems to really care about the customers and really for low price a year not that hard of a decision to jump up to the paid version.

Best Rating Plugin and best service
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is extremely flexible and easy to use.

Also, their customer service is the fastest I have ever seen and incredibly useful.

I was on a deadline and it was Friday night and these guys helped me with some customization.

Hard to beat!

Great plugin, Pro is worth it. Shortcode support.
By , for WP 3.8.1

Saas-hosted ratings with great support, and the schema rich snippets are worth it in the Pro version.
Including the rating starts anywhere in a post or page is also possible via shortcode. I hope they please include a sample shortcode in the WP Admin/Settings/Ratings Widget in the next update to make it easier to find.
Congrats Vova! Please stay in business!!

Could be awesome, but you lose the rights to your own content
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin could be awesome, but the idea behind it makes it fail.

Well-coded, very customizable, SEO-friendly with Schema.org - however there is one big problem: As a plugin user, you lose the rights to do anything you want with your content. All ratings are stored on a server run by the business behind this plugin - instead of storing them in your own WordPress database. Imagine the business fails or something else could happen - you would lose all your ratings as you would have no way importing them into another rating plugin. They have the power to do what they want with it. While this is basically the way to go for today's social networks, I am completely against this approach in terms of WordPress.

In my opinion it is perfectly fine to provide commercial plugins for WordPress, and it is also fine to regularly check the user's license. But practically owning the user's website's data (or parts of it) is a no-go. That's why I can only give this plugin a single star.

This is an easy way to add ratings and top posts at the same time.

This is a great plugin, but the reason I gave 4 stars is that it has sometimes not been working consistently, for about a week. The support people helped. I felt confident it would be working again. It turned out to be a caching issue which appears to be resolved. I expect it to continue working in the future, just as it has in the past.

They are collecting your data and hosting it on their server.
Stay clear. "free" is version is a joke.
