This is a well-executed plugin and would be a helpful tool for many users if not for the price. In order to use the plugin, a account is necessary. Good news, it's free for 7 days. Bad news, it's $29 a month after that. I'm not sure of many applications that would justify that price tag. Shame... it's a nice plugin.
