More than 90% of the plugin is reserved for the pro version!!? Really! I lost 1 hour setting up the free trial and it simply doesn't show anything.
It is a very nice and interesting tool, but the basic (free) version it is so poor in options, almost none! And this fact it's accentuated by the dozens of features and options available only for the Pro version. I would love to have a trial for a short period of time, to test and decide after. Otherwise, seems to be a great tool for visitors as well as for the rich snippets that can be shown in search engines and by that having a greater click-through rate and more visitors - no doubt, a cool plugin!
It's an awesome plugin for giving reviews/ratings. Although the pro version has many other options to customize the plugin the free version is enough to keep things going.
