It helps a lot. I'm using this extension now 3 weeks passed. It helps a lot to manage contents from tablet pc.

Most limitations stem from this being a mobile device application. I am using an Android 4.0 smartphone with a 5.3" screen. The input using the touch-screen is OK but is limited by my slow keyboard skills on mobile devices. Can't blame Joooid for that. I would expect improvement in typing using a touch screen tablet.

Using Google voice recognition input speed up entry quite a bit. Recognition is almost as good as a desktop app. It is more awkward to make corrections, however, that is the limitation of the device not Jooid.

I took a couple of test pictures: when submitting/uploading the articles I got a server error message. However, the articles did upload and the picture looked good... again that is device dependent.

This module/plugin works well for free.. If I find that I make use of it, I will be glad to pay for the pro version.

I tested joooid on a tablet running Cyanogenmod 10 / Android 4.1.2. My Joomla installation is 2.5.8.

The basic idea of Joooid is pretty brilliant. Write articles on your tablet - even offline. Manage your content while you are traveling. With the location- and photoupload functions, it could even help to make a personal homepage or blog a facebook replacement.


Managing articles mainly didn't work. Creation worked but not publish/unpublish, trash, etc.

Joooid only knows the pre-ACL access-groups. Those seem to be hardcoded. Individual group/access-level structures are not downloaded. What's even worse, everything that Joooid can't associate with some of the pre-ACL access-groups, is PUBLIC!
So, be VERY careful when you use Joooid to edit existing articles when you have your own ACL-system.

I sent an email to the developers via the integrated report-function but did not get any kind of reply.

Bottom line: Really great idea but missing functionality and a few nasty security issues.

From the last release (2.1) we started to support Jooomla permission like edit, edit state, edit own in articles, you can read the full release post on joooid blog This is the first step to fully support the Joomla Access Control System, in the next release we'll going to add also the custom access levels as you pointed in your comment so please be patient, we're working on it.

About your issues with the app please download the last update from market and update the component to the last version, you can find on joooid website, then test it again, if you still have issues you can report them in the forum or by mail directly from the app, It takes some time to answer to all the mails we receive but we usually do it in relative short time (about a week).

Good addition for my blog and personal page. I can manage my posts from the tablet in no time.

I can see how everyone is raving about this app. It is a nice application but I see some issues here. I am having problems with adding multiple sites. I run at least 10 websites and adding even just two is causing a server error. Once the error is present it will not let me login to an existing account already created, even the demo account. I don't want to take away from the potential capabilities of this app it has some exceedingly strong areas but this may be an issue the developer will want to look in to.

Sorry for the late response but I was fixing the app for the 2.0.1 release, and I wanted to fix also the problem you pointed to me before answer to the comment, please test and report if the error is still present, you can also write me in private at this e-mail : info[at], thank you.

Congrats for super Extension, If you make apps for symbian (v5,etc) It will be better, because we have symbian user more than other platforms.

I tried this out and it works well. It was easy to install and get working.

The only problem I have is deciding if I need to quit using K2 so I can use this awesome app.

This app is my hope that I won't end up switching over to WP.

I really love that people can put content up on the go, and even during an event to their own site. This app allows for that.

I'm sorry to say this, but this is an awesome piece of software. The kind I wouldn't mind paying for. Good work!

If you combine this excellent application that is easy to set up and works solidly... with a few plugins on your site you can easily do blogging, and even vlogging in an incredibly fast way.

Creating on the spot, content has never been faster for Joomla. I love this extension and app!

I love this extension; It's a must have if you an Android phone and a Joomla site(s). I also gave the author 5 stars on Android Market.
My only complaint is this great app isn't available for i Phone & Windows Mobile users.
Reviews: 1
This is a great extension in that it does everything it says it does.
Took me all of maybe 4 1/2 minutes to setup.
I'm on an Evo w/ Froyo (2.2) and I love it.

If I have any criticism it's a slight one - when I turn my phone to landscape, the logo area takes up a bit much of the screen but it doesn't really affect usage so no biggie.

I soooo hope you continue developing this because it needs a few more features. Editing existing articles being the main one but for what it is it does it's job well and I really dig it.

Thanks for contribution and keep up the good work!
