If you've watched the video, please feel free to comment with your feedback. Even better, let me know the one thing that's missing from this plugin that's preventing you from trying it out.
And if this plugin isn't for you, but you're an incredibly kind soul and think this plugin might be useful to your followers... I'd be eternally grateful if you could tweet us!
