WOW! Top notch product. Delivered exactly as promised and then some :) I'm delighted with this service. When somebody delivers this good, I feel it is only fair to take a few minutes to leave them some feedback.
So, Full Review:
I've got to say that I was on the skeptical side of this product performing. My load speeds on desktop and mobile on home page and product pages were pretty poor. Both around the 50 mark according to google page speed insights. I tested out my site on cleared browsers, desktop + mobile (wifi on and off) and the loads were seriously compromising my user experience.
I messed around with some of the auto image compression apps, and they really didn't help much. So after hours of digging around online, I realized that I needed to get my code optimized and that doing so myself would prob take days of learning and even then would be a hit or miss, or I would need to hire a developer to do it for me (which would cost a fair penny).
Before committing to either of those paths though, I thought, what the heck, lets try this app. I duplicated my theme (which you should always do with any update/ app install/etc.) and bam, out of the box mobile score was up to 84.
Desktop was stuck at 54, so I reached out to Tony )the developer here), and within 24 hours he updated the code and now desktop is at 90 for homepage and 88 for product pages.
I saw a comment on here about someone claiming this is some sort of trick to fool page speed insights; well I was tracking progress with
And let me tell you, the load speeds are now across the board. I'm talking about going down from 7+ seconds to 1.2
I also manually tested across clean browsers and mobile devices, and the site is way faster.
Those are solid results. For one small fee, this performance boost is a no brainer. Tony jumped on to help fix up any left over issues the auto update did not catch.
Note: don't be stupid. Back up your theme. Messing around with the code anytime can have unexpected consequences with other apps, custom configurations, etc.
For me the result has been amazing.
Thanks Tony! You've got a real gem here.
