This product worked well at first and did almost everything I expect it could do and was told it could do by the developer. It wasn't perfect but it did the job.

Sadly things started to go wrong and it seemed a little buggy. At first the support was quite good but I got the impression as time went on that the problems the extension was displaying was too much "hassle" for the developer to fix and my problems were ignored as "low priority".

Communicating with the developer proved to be a complete nightmare. It was very rare to get support during normal working hours and it was common to have support queries ignored for weeks on end and then dismissed when finally they were looked at.

The product itself is simple to install use however continued use of the product is extremely difficult when things go wrong.

If you wish to purchase this product then you could do a lot worse as the product itself is reasonably good however if you are not capable of building such a product from scratch yourself you may find, as I have, this product to be a waste of money as the level and quality of support is not commensurate with the eagerness to sell the product.
