Yesterday I bought the developer version of Slide Deck 2 and spent the afternoon playing around with all the functionality. I love anything that Digital Telepathy puts out. They really put a lot of time and attention into their products and it shows.
Yesterday afternoon I create this reader page (go check it out) which would take a long time to create if I didn’t have Slide Deck. It pulls a lot of articles from a lot of different sources that I read daily. I created it as a feed reader page of sorts for myself.
While a lot of jquery sliders are beautiful and function well, it’s often a chore to setup the slider on the backend. There are themes that have some decent user interfaces for this, but by and large the process is still unintuitive, and requires quite a bit of programming knowledge, and takes a lot of time.
Slide Deck 2 lets you create a great looking slider in just minutes.
Each with a ton of customization options that are really well thought out.
Overall, it’s one of the best premium plugins out there. I will even replace the slider that’s on the home page of DMAD that came with my theme to use this one instead because it’s so much easier to work with (and allows for a wider range of dynamic sources).
