I tried the free version and it was almost perfect for my special request. Then I paid for the pro and it was great accept for one small detail. Ater a very fast email response, the developer offered to customize it for my particular needs for a very reasonable price. I have added N-Media to the top of my list of tools. Thank you !!!

Great for my needs

Thank you for this great plugin—I wanted to have a no-hassle page on my site for users to easily upload files and this does the trick.

Just a minor note—there is grammatical error on the display page.

The words above the table showing the uploaded files should be:

Files uploaded

You have: File’s uploaded

The apostrophe is incorrect- so you might make a note to correct that whenever you update the plugin—or better yet, make that text something the user can customize. I’m guessing that would be easy as you already allow for the user to control the text on the upload button, messages, etc.

Everything else is great.
