Limited support and functionality
By , for WP 4.4.1

Maximum .csv upload size of 2MB is too small. Requires manual geocoding. Tags and Categories form fields are not grouped.

Poorly Documented EVEN with Premium Support
By , for WP 4.2.2

EXTREMELY Poorly Documented.
Buggy, non-user-friendly.
Not for professional use - expect a lot of wasted time trying to make it look semi-professional

Do not work anymore. No support and no updates.
By , for WP 4.0

This looked nice but to old code and no updates or support. Dont work in mobile devices and slows regular sites down overall loading time.

Was great, no longer supported.
By , for WP 3.9.1

We bought this about 2 years ago and within a month, they told us there was no longer going to be any support. I'm fine with that, but they should shut down the website and stop selling it to people.

Poor support & doesn't work with php 5.4+
By , for WP 3.9.1

The support of this plugin is shocking (just look at the support section) and it doesn't work with newer versions of php (5.4+), which you can't get any support on!

I would recommend avoiding this one and look elsewhere.

Developers are non-responsive
By , for WP 3.5.1

The developers of this plug don't respond to anything. The stated 4 updates a year don't happen.

It's a shame, this plugin used to be great, and worth every penny. Simple changes and suggestions go unheeded.

Refusal to Support
By , for WP 3.6.1

Had been using this plugin for almost 8 months on the same hosting environment and it worked perfectly well. After the WordPress update to 3.6 it began to stop loading the locations data. I called for support but the IT guy told me that it was Google's fault, they were denying my requests because of the hosting environment. (which had been working previously) I try another plugin and everything worked great! why would that be? because its the simplemaps plugin that was failing, not Google's API which works for billions of people every day! your simple little plugin barely services a thimble compared to that. And instead of helping to track down the problem they spent less than 30 seconds telling me i had to contact Google support instead. Gee thanks! Learn from my horrible mistake and don't waste your time on a plugin that could randomly stop working on you and a support center that abandons you and claims its not their problem leaving you to do hours worth of transfer work to a more reliable plugin, just start there to begin with.

looks like a great plugin, but no updates for a year...
By , for WP 3.5.2

Map is not showing, and search doesn't work with latest wp 3.5.2 version. Sorry :(

Google API error
By ,

Getting a nasty Google "sensor" API error on every page load. Can't edit search form labels. Zero documentation. Developer doesn't seem to be updating anymore. Avoid.

By ,

This plugin does not work with wordpress in backend just freezes.
