The plugin works as advertised. When I ran into a problem (of my own making), I reached out to support, and they actually went in and fixed the problem FOR me!

I’ve been using IM and IMPro with My Calendar for several years. Xylus support worked with me several times to update the plugin when Meetup changed their API. Support was courteous and prompt, staying in contact until fixed. I am now using this with the included built-in calendar instead of My Calendar. Works much better than My Calendar and the functionality is excellent. Had recent small problem and questions. Got very quick support and resolution of issue. Definitely the best Meetup aggregator!
