    Feature Packed, Customizable and Easy To Use
    I opted for this plugin over tablepress and am really glad I did. Its functionality and usability are beyond anything else i have seen.
    On top of this, the support is AMAZING. Fast and professional.
    By AusSimon (@aussimon)

    Comparing to TablePress which is incredibly hard to use to build tables with many columns with different data types, this is a life saver. Best table plugin for WordPress so far.
    – By Bob (@shallway)

    Amazing time saver!
    This is my Go-To app, after years of fat-fingering updates into a spread spread sheet. And then working to upload the information. Ninja Tables is a time/life saver. Very easy to use. I send my client(s) a spreadsheet, they update their rates and I import/upload these to the site. That’s it. I highly recommend!
    – By RTyrell (@rtyrell)

    Great Plugin, Even Better Support
    This plugin is easily one of my most used plugins for my website. It is very easy to use and is packed with features. The developers are super quick to respond if you happen to run into any issues. Definitely recommend!

    Best and most flexible WP Tables Plugin
    We tried a lot of plugins, but “Ninja Tables” was the only one, that fits all our needs. It’s no rocket science to create the first table and fill it up with data. Additionally it is so flexible, that you are able to move and change the table, without having to re-create the whole thing. PS: We’re using now the Pro version and it absolutely worth the price – it’s nearly a steal, for what you get.
    5 ***** Stars! Great work!

    Tables are usually introduced to present a huge amount of data in an organized way. Still, sometimes a large number of entries can botch that purpose.
