Plugins Picked By Marcus:

WP Scroll Depth is a small Google Analytics plugin that allows you to measure how far down the page your users are scrolling. It monitors the 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% scroll points, sending a Google Analytics Event at each one. You can also track when specific elements on the page are scrolled into view. On a blog, for example, you could send a Scroll Depth event whenever the user reaches the end of a post.

Embed Custom Field adds a shortcode for including a custom field on a page or post. Create a custom field on your post/page, then use the following shortcode to include it on your site: [embed_custom_field “field-name-here”]

WP Taxi Me adds the ability to order a taxi directly from your mobile site using Uber. You can encourage users to register for Uber using an optional setting as well. The plugin hides itself if the user isn’t on mobile, but users can still register for Uber.
