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.

Misleading Product Description and No Refund
By , for WP 4.1.1

The pop-up plugin was a joke. What they advertise as basic functionality for the product actually requires custom coding. Upon discovering this within 12 hours of purchasing the product, I asked for a refund. They don't give refunds for this. I was told they can'y give refunds because they wouldn't be able to stay in business because people would just continue to use the product without paying. I asked them how this was possible since they issue license keys and could just as easily revoke a license key in order to take away access. I received no response back.

Based-on my experience, these guys appear to be completely unethical.

Free version could have some more features

Ok plugin but i give it one star for greediness

pretty spamware and does not support contactform7
By , for WP 4.1

I used this a year or so ago, it was OK then, Now when I try again it only asks for money , then when I finally deleted all of the extra popups from last year It gave me a popup with the form 7 code instead of a usable form!

Dont bother

No useful functionality
By ,

All the useful functionality in this plugin is blocked out as Pro. And there's no way to add a form to sign up to a mailing list.

Not work with CDN's
By , for WP 4.0.1

Works on simple websites. Build a site with more complexity and use "Content Delivery networks" and it stops being nice.

Does not work effectively
By , for WP 4.0.1

1) On my browser, it kept giving me the pop-up everytime I visited a new page on the site. That would annoy anyone who visits my site. Don't tell me I need a pro version for this basic functionality. If you can't provide this basic function, stop offering this plugin for "Free".

2) The pop-up failed to show on several computers and several users experienced the same.

Quite simply, this plugin does not do what it says it does.
