So far so good!! The free version was next to everything we needed for our site. The form view is perfect for smartphone viewing and provides a simple four-step process for booking. I like the admin panel. They've thought of all the essential tools for organizing an online appointment scheduler. I decided to upgrade to Pro for the buffer time feature. There are a few other features like the waiting time I'd like to try. Hopefully, the code and support continues to go well. Spoke with support for pre-sale and I like the experience thus far. Ty
