Great and free!
Just a piece of advice: make sure that you are following readme carefully when installing. Believe me, it's all in there, but if you just leave compillation on (just as I did:) you'll get something to be nervous about.
Their support is great, BTW:)
Free module with numerous options!

A nice little app
