Works fine, but unspecific IDs for divs cause problems
By , for WP 3.4.2

Great plugin! Works fine. But I had a conflict with another <div id="overlay"> in my theme. Instead of unspecific IDs and class names, it would be better to use something like <div id="wp-jquery-lightbox"> and <div id="wp-jquery-lightbox-overlay">, so that there are no conflicts with other IDs in the theme or with other plugins.

A good start for mobile support
By , for WP 3.4.2

This is the first plugin that I found mentioning about mobile support so I'm very pleased to try it on Firefox for Android :)

The swipe feature does works! but it makes zooming in-out harder and it doesn't very make sense since the picture didn't slide along but fade to a new picture.
The black overlay were maximized perfectly so there are no flickering while zooming in-out which is very good!
Screen transition (between vertical/horizon) isn't smooth for a duo-core phone.
