Doesn't work with multi-site
By , for WP 4.5.3

I don't want to have to use your dashboard plugin just to use the popup pro plugin.

This plugin wasted 4-5 hours of my day.

Can't close popup on mobile

Set up a popup to be shown on mobile and nothing happens when you tap the X in the corner. It doesn't close... on any version of iPhone...

STAY AWAY! Paid version sucks too
By , for WP 4.2.2

Look, I purchased this plugin under the expectation that it would work, which it DID NOT without some real effort, that's the minor problem.

Here's the real big problem: The features that I needed, for which I specifically purchased this plugin, had some bugs and needed some updating, which I informed the company about. I'm sure by now, judging by their changelog, they've fixed the issues and included the much-needed updates with their software that I specifically purchased with the reasonable expectation of it working as stated. Except you have to have an expensive, unnecessary subscription to update.

So I can't update my plugin, even for the simple fixes that should have been included with what I PURCHASED because they wanted me to buy a membership at somewhere around $25 a month (or they offered me a whopping $100 a year "deal" when I raised this concern to them) if I wanted to actually update my plugin.

So they sold me a $20 plugin that lacked certain necessary functionality for which I would have to pay $20 per MONTH if I wanted to stay updated.

They also include an obnoxious ad that you can hide, but just keeps coming up, with their plugin that begs you to get their expensive membership for which it's hard to understand the value, and specifically SHUTS OFF certain functionality if you don't have the membership. So in other words, to make matters worse, they blackmail you with walled functionality just for a pingback to their subscription.

Their free one is junk, their paid one is subpar and cannot be updated unless you want to REpurchase what you already purchased for minor improvements, and the advertisements that they feel justified in sticking in YOUR wordpress administrative backend are intrusive, obnoxious and annoying.

Stay far away from anything WPMUDEV. Worst $20 I've ever spent.

$24 / Month for this plugin is greedy.
By , for WP 4.2.2

In free version you can't literally do anything, and asking $24 / Month for just a pop up plugin is ridicilous. Uninstalled just 5 minutes after installation. Total waste of time.

Cool Plugin, in theory...

...I couldn't get the Plugin to work on WP 4.2.2

Few Features, Nags for money
By ,

As we have with several of their plugins,
Installed the "free" version.
the plugin had problems. Support? Not.
A nag screen nags you to death - and their prices, for a plugin, are ridiculous.

I strongly suspect that some of the 5 star ratings are faked, or lets say, severely biased due to financial interest. (Same people giving same short "amazing" review on ALL. So we are leaving our own on the ones we tested/used)

not at all useful
By , for WP 4.1.1

the author is just trying to make users buy premium version.
basic functionality is also not working properly for free version.

Pure Rubish
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin was good many years ago but now, the company wants you to buy to have any sort of customizations options. I do not blame them but the free version does not even work now. Do yourself a favor and look for a different WP pop up plugin. Shame, WPMU Dev is normally pretty reliable but perhaps that is changing now.
