Overly complicated

I can't believe its so hard to make a simple slider. I don't need fancy transitions. I need an image, that I've sized properly, caption, tasteful arrows/bullets and done.

We are not in 95'

I'm testing free version and slider can't work in full-width!

Works but terrible interface
By , for WP 4.2.2

Free version only used: Finding your way around this is very difficult. It is illogical and very confusing and frustrating, although once discovered it does work. The English is terrible, which doesn't help.

Great UI but dynamic post based sliders behind paywall

Nice lookign plugin but nothing of use without paying

Not Intuitive
By , for WP 4.0

Sorry to say but I found this plugin impossible to use to create the simplest of sliders. I know the other reviews talk about great support, but what would be better is a product that is easy to use that doesn't require support in order to use it. In my case I spent days trying to get this plugin working. In the end I gave up and tried another popular slider and was then create a slider that met my requirements in minutes.

So that was $20 wasted.

So while it may be a good product, there are better plugins available if you just need to produce simple sliders.

Need to 'upgrade' for it to be useful

It would be nice, but if you want to have anything in text in your sliders (i.e. layers) you need to buy it. As it is, there are far better (simpler) sliders out there for free.

Nice interface, hard to use
By , for WP 3.8.1

Its a slick interface but very difficult to use. Slides end up being blank or sized incorrectly. There is a myriad of controls, many of which are disabled in the free version (crippleware). I suspect that if you want ease of use you'll need to pay up. Can't find a way to remove a slide without removing all and starting over. Very frustrating.

Painfully slow: not worth the aggravation

waste of time

sorry, a slider which does not slide automatically (in the free version) is good for nothing..... you should have stripped out other features but not the auto sliding option...
