Great for Wordpress Apps

Reviewed on 2020/12/23

It helped us create an online chat community without using Buddypress or an external social network.

Pros

Enables Wordpress products to offer a light community without heavy coding.

Cons

The UX design could use some work. My staff has to work on it so and added time to our product development. Its over priced for the value and now there's new competitors now that are way cheaper.

Changed Business Model

Reviewed on 2019/01/31

Pros

Relatively easy to use.
Intergrates with many platforms.

Cons

They recently changed their business model and now the plugin that I purchased (8 months ago) is not supported. If I want CC on my dating website I have to $$ monthly.

Customer service is slow. It takes a min (usually) of 2 days to hear back from them and then a couple of days after that to solve the problem.
