Excellent plugin.
By , for WP 4.1

Works great right out of the box.

Quick to get it running
By , for WP 3.5.1

With the help of tutorials on http://www.nextscripts.com, it's easy to get it running in tens of minutes (when not going through configuration).

Posts can be well customised, though I miss an option to send a post without the message text just with the attached link. If the "message text format" field is left empty, it will get the content from the post editor which might not be desired.

The only (and usage limited) workaround I found is to set the "message text format" as %EXCERPT% and then insert e.g. the space (" ") character in place of Excerpt when writing the post.

WOW!

Forget hootsuite and all these other places where you need to schedule posts. I use this in conjunction with a calendar scheduler called NYX pro Scheduler. Either way, set the date of when a post publishes and I literally send that new post to 10 places at one time! DONE!

Plus, you can schedule this plugin to post articles before/after a date/time or only if this plugin hasn't posted it before.

I am blown away!

I upgraded to the pro version of this because, I wanted to post to Pinterest and Google+, and have more than one page on fb and two twitter accounts. You need to go pro if you have that situation. Best $50 I ever spent!

Very disappointing!

This is a really great plugin, but Facebook does not work, so is missing the inclusion of the most prominent social channel making it worthless.
Support is very poor, you will receive an email directing you to the knowledge base articles which you will have already analyzed and followed to the 'T' without success. After this you will receive no response from 'support'.
But, my money is already spent so... happy days eh developer!

Didn't work

And left behind code after uninstalling

Good plugin

I could be wrong but, it doesn't seem to be able to auto post all my posts I made before I installed this app. Hopefully version 4 will have this feature.

Cannot customize at time of posting; cannot add Twitter handle
By , for WP 4.1

Still looking for something that does what I want it to do, and this isn't it.

A very basic feature here needs to be, of course, the ability to put a Twitter handle into a post. For example, HootSuite lets you post distinct content to each social network on a per-post basis. Even better, Buffer converts an @ Twitter handle into its full name for the Facebook version. This plug-in, even though it could have, does none of these things.

We should of course be able to have customization fields show up at the time of posting, as currently is the case with Jetpack's Publicize feature. And yet, Publicize only lets you create a single post of text, lacking the ability to customize for Twitter vs. Facebook, etc.

Big problem for anyone who's professional and serious about this stuff; and this plug-in doesn't solve it.

Amazing and powerful
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin is excellent.

It has a ton of sites to autopost to, it is easy to use, and the most important, it has excellent documentation, FAQ and support.

Totally a must!

Not enough functionality
By , for WP 4.0.1

The idea of plugin is perfect. But currently there are some major security issues that should be fixed.

1. Failed to work with HTTPS (at least for VK).
2. Failed to work with 2 step authentication.

In addition the following functionality is greatly appreciate:

1. Visual configuration of posts. For now it’s hard to configure how the non-text post will be visible on account wall. I’ve failed to find out a combination of parameters to post coub .com link the same way as it posts on account sites (coub is embedded and it can be played by a click).
2. It will be a superb function to pull the posts from social accounts to wordpress blog. In other words: it will be good to have full blog-to-blog synchronization.

Excellent!
By , for WP 4.1

I've always hung back from SNAP in favour of doing my own sharing, but I decided to give the pro version a whirl anyway - the pro version because I wanted to share to my Facebook page AND profile, and also to share to the various Googlearythms.

Takes a while to set up - especially as you find yourself joining all of the new social networks in the list too, but when its all done, it's the total dogs bollox!

Wonderful plugin with excellent individual set-up instructions for each network.

Highly recommended!
