Joost de Valk, well known WordPress plugin developer and podcaster, has now added plugin reviews to the list of things he does for the community. He has put up a post with a form to accept review requests from any readers. Regarding his decision to add this new service, he said:
I’ve decided to start doing plugin reviews on this blog, I get so many questions from people asking “is this a good plugin”, “is that a good one”, “can I trust that plugin”. It’ll probably help a lot more people if I start doing these reviews publicly.
de Valk is currently limiting the reviews to free plugins, though he said in the comments that paid plugins could be reviewed in the future.
Will you be taking advantage of this new service? How often do you end up looking for advice on which plugins to choose and use?
