Info: This is a review of a paid app.
Are you looking for a slider that is completely customizable, works cross-device/browser and built with modern standards in mind? Then Royal Slider is a very good option.
Royal Slider is a jQuery plugin for displaying any HTML content (images, videos, text..) inside a slider interface and comes with awesome features.
The slider is very customizable with 50+ options, 4 skins with PSD files, 9 pre-built templates (and more coming) and full CSS styling.
It works in all major browsers, the output is responsive down to mobile (touch friendly) and works fast, thanks to CSS3 animations (with JS fallback).
The slider also loads fast independently from the number of slides as there is lazy-loading (only next few items are loaded).
Royal Slider offers various options for browsing sliders including thumbnails, tabs, bullets, keyboard, prev-next buttons or swipe.
There is support for YouTube and Vimeo videos and any other providers can be added with ease.
Every slider created is SEO-friendly, items can be deep-linked and it creates a low-markup to create one.
Also, it has native fullscreen support, has lifetime free support and updates.
P.S. Royal Slider is the best selling slider in CodeCanyon.
