Rentalot Plus
I have used other booking component on another project of mine and I can say that this one is considerably better when you get into using it.

I have now used it for couple of months and it is going well now.
There are minor things that you need to get used to as is typical with "pre tailored" components, but now me and my colleugues have worked out our working proceedure to fit the component, maybe not the best way but it works for us.
It took me quite some time to set the component up, which I was not suspecting from all the statements made in previous reviews. But once that is done things run more or less as expected.

The support is decent as stated in other reviews.
Owner's reply

Unless you are willing to spend tens (or even hundreds) of thousands of dollars on a fully customised system, your business will always have to adapt to the way the software works. However, we are always interested to hear feedback about people's needs and wishes. We can't always oblige but we do carefully consider every suggestion. It is unfair to give such a poor rating without giving us the feedback we need to understand your issues. I see that you have given similar treatment to other extensions in this category and I do have to question your motives. I hope that future reviewers will be more considerate.

I have used other booking components for my website and I can say that without hesitation that this one is relatively decent. It has a bit of a learning curve but once you get past that it is a decent component. There are although few things that might be better and I look forward to see future developments of this components.

XCloner-Backup and Restore
This is a very good component and it works like a charm.

The program does exactly what it says, which is unfortunately not the usual case.

It is a must have for any developer.

Phoca Gallery Plugin
It is a good and simple photo gallery to use.
It provides simple way to add pictures into a gallery on your website.

The drawbacks of the components is how comments on the images are shown and adding title and text to you images during multiple imports.

The comments should be more in the focus then they are now. Perhaps something in the way Facebook does it, most people know that way so it would be more simple and straight forward.

When adding multiple images to the gallery it does not give the option on adding title and text to each picture, or at least I have not found out how to do it.

Despite this it is a good component.
