Worst Slider Plugin
By , for WP 4.5.2

Worst Plugin, very much less features and very hard to edit even with their software downloaded. Added button also show in one slide and doesn't show up on other slide.

errors with debug mode

Very, very and very bad

very bad plugin i've ever seen for wordpress...

Buggy to update
By , for WP 4.4

I have tried this plugin on a couple of sites, and the update process for 8.1 and 8.2 versions has been very buggy. The program seems to update, but doesn't notify WP that it is finished, so WP hangs, and I have to manually delete the maintenance file to put site back up.

Update 9/4/2015 - Updates to 8.4 and 8.5 still hang as well.

Update 1/5/2016 - Just did the update to 8.6 and guess what, still the same problem. It installs the update but never notifies that it completes. Still had to manually delete maintenance file to get site back up. Out of the many plugins I have used on multiple WP sites, this is the only plugin that I have this problem with.

Not useful at all

:(

many (much) better options available
By , for WP 4.2.2

I purchased this, along with other products from apycom.com. I am not impressed and wish I had my money back. There are many wordpress plugins that do a better job than this does.

Find another option!!!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have used WOWslider several times on several client sites. I had read good things and decided to buy the unlimited license. Now after really using it repeatedly, I run into issues often!!! It's difficult in some ways that aren't obvious at first, then I have issues with opening past projects. There are a few buggy things as well that I've learned to work around but that's kind of ridiculous. There are so many other choices out there. This one is not worth the time or money to integrate it. Beware.

говно

говно, которое предлашает создать слайд где-то в другом места, а затем его импортировать. sucks!

Doesn't work at all
By , for WP 4.1

I tried making several photo galleries with this tool and none of them worked. The title animation didn't sync with the image animation or the images didn't display in the correct size or the animation froze. I tried nit in several browsers and multiple computers and always got the same disappointing results.

Useless with Linux
By , for WP 4.0.1

Strange to make a plugin that can not use the "mother of websites," Linux. Therefore useless to me.
