What features?
By , for WP 3.9.1

Apparently this doesn't actually add any new features for updating. It is just a slightly different GUI to the same update functionality *unless* you pay for the pro version. What does that do? It claims to add backup capabilities, but it doesn't back up enough data to actually restore a site.

Useless.

Not the best plugin for updates
By , for WP 3.5.2

Pros
I'm assuming the plugin works. Why I haven't actually tried it beyond installing? Read on.

Cons

  • Bad grammar. How hard is it to run a check?
  • 2/3 of the plugin only works when purchasing the Pro version. It's more of an advertisement than a useful plugin.
  • Sloppy design.
  • Adds its own menu.
  • Calls that menu 'BWS Plugins', advertising its creator instead of giving the user clarity.
  • Advertises their other plugins on the 'BWS' page.
  • Writing a 5 star review of their own product.

The plugin might work like a charm, but these are not the kind of people I want to associate with and especially not rely on.
