I saw this extension and it promised a lot. So I checked the demos site and it is performing well there. So I decided to buy it, but it was not working. I tried to get support but my ticket is still open after a week and I really hope that the developer is willing to fix the problems. To prevent other users to lose money I decided to write the review now. The problem is that it is with a fault installable but afterwards by activation of the plugin the whole site is down until I delete everything of the plugin.
Owner's reply

There was a small bug which was promptly fixed after being notified. We initially did not receive notification of the pending ticket which is why it took a long time for us to reply.
