You say you want feedback - OK ;)

For the money, it appears the Pro sections seem lacking. Huge blasts of text and buttons don't make versatile elements. They have a certain look (even when restyled) and work well with a small number of sites that use that style, but ultimately they feel more like padding than useful items, after all how many times ware you going to need numerous versions of a big heading and a photo. Just looking at the sections in the shop shows what users need in the default package. Yes, the Flipper is great, but some basic stuff should be in there.

 

A Twitter manager

An Accordion manager

An Tab manager

At least one more slider

A form manger

Link editor for text boxes

 

you could go on…a lot

Thanks for taking it the spirit it was intended ;)

 

I do hope the 'its not needed because its in the shop' argument doesn't prevail.

 

The Free version is great, cutting that further would basically negate its usefulness.

That said, the $288/360 per year subscription version does need to be a more significant plus than enabling a few features. 

 

At present it feels like you have to pay to get basic things like 'column offset' enabled, which is quite a negative approach.

Far better to have a plethora of new tools for your commitment to a lifelong recurring fee.

DMS 1.2 will feature more sections.

However, to go through your list.

 

A Twitter manager - What do you mean by Twitter manager ? There are already tons of plugins and a section in the store that offer a lot of functionality. Don't really see what a core section would achieve over the plugins and the store section, don't already.
 
An Accordion manager - We already include an accordion shortcode and there is an accordion section in the store.
 
An Tab manager - Like the accordion above, we already include a tab shortcode and I think there is a tab section in the store already.
 
At least one more slider - We provide two already, three if you include the shortcode. So what would another slider do ? The Revslider section is going to be improved in 1.2, so is there something specific you have in mind ?
 
A form manger - Really no really point in this in my opinion, when we have both NinjaForms and Gravity Form plugins. These two plugins are awesome and having a basic form section wouldn't be beneficial. As most users already use these plugins already.
 
Link editor for text boxes - What do you mean by link editor ? A URL field for TextBox section?

@Danny-

 

How would you effectively use an accordion shortcode in a DMS section?  Put it a Text Box or Full Box (that doesn't come in DMS)?  Store option isn't free.  Same goes with most of the others.

Yeah but that is the purpose of the store, we can't simply start adding new sections when there are already counterparts in our store.

 

In regards to the accordion, yeah just add your accordion code to a MediaBox or widget.
