I really like this slider. It's easy to use and configure. One of the things I like the most is how easy it is to change the Template with the built in theme system. It is really easy to move things like the nav bullets around. Thanks for creating this and giving it away for free.

Installed with no problem, instructions in the module control panel make it very easy to configure. Played nice with other components and plugins on the site.

I would have given it 5 stars but the only way to use the module in content is to use the content-load module plugin. Not a big deal unless you need to have more than one instance running. Then you have to copy the module, assign it to another unused position, change the folder it's pointing to, etc.

Still, it's well documented, so far it's reliable and secure. Plus, it's a very smooth animation and looks great on iPhone/iPad as it's not Flash.

Thank you for creating this.
