Formerly known as WOW jQuery Slider, WOW Slider is a professional tool that creates solid and attractive image sliders in no time and from any amount of images and even online videos. The result is both robust and versatile, and it can be viewed on any mobile device and in all kinds of browsers, old and new. Its easiness of use and its high-quality results make it the perfect companion to any web-editing tool.

The tool is perfectly suitable for all kinds of users – it requires no coding on their part, it comes with a wide variety of templates to make the process even more intuitive, and it can be easily tweaked and customized to fit every user’s needs. Its excellent preview capabilities allow users to check every change they make in real time during the design process, as well as to take a look at the final product on their favorite browser and see how it will really look like on the Web.

In order to create a new slider, users just have to select a set of images and/or YouTube/Vimeo videos, which the program will download in a snap from the URLs provided. WOW Slider will then do the rest automatically – it will create in seconds a first version of the slider by applying a number of default profiles and settings. Some users may find this first attempt to be good enough for their purpose, so they can move directly to the Publish section and save it as an HTML code file or tell the program where to put it.

However, most users will surely like to add their personal touch to their slider before publishing it. The program provides them with a wide variety of templates, transition effects, and image filters to personalize the look of the sliders. Besides, users can define how the title and the various buttons will be shown, how to display the thumbnails, or how to play back the various slides, among many other possibilities. All of these changes can be checked and tweaked immediately thanks to the program’s preview functionality. Additionally, users can preview the final result on their default browser at any time.

WOW Slider is an excellent design tool for anyone wanting to add a professional-looking jquery slider to their webpage or app. The design process couldn’t be simpler, and the results it produces couldn’t be more gratifying. Its price tag, a bit on the high side, may be the program’s only drawback for potential users.
