JEEMA SMS
Joomla needs a good SMS component, and I thought this was it!
Over the course of the 6 months I used Jeema, I discovered 3 major bugs, and it was surprising these were not located by the developer. When I brought these to the developer's attention I wasn't able to download the upgrades without eating into my 6-limit download of the component (even though I spotted the bugs!). For EUR120 you should be getting unlimited downloads during your licence period.

Documentation is not perfect, with many grammatical and typo mistakes.

Its a move in the right direction in terms of merging SMS for end users with an easy to manage system... but there is a lot of work remaining here.

Hi, Thanks for your comment. We really consider all our week points. For your information JEEMA SMS 4.0 will address all these bugs/issues and all our 200+ customers will get this version as free. 4.0 is expected by End of April 2012.

HM Community
Took a punt on this component, as I am trying to bring some quick Group interaction without the need for something as complicated as JomSocial or CB.

Unfortunately this was a big fail. HM is littered with typos and the documentation makes things even more confusing!

After one hour of trying every possible way to get this working, I gave up.

Fail.
Account Expiration Control
AEC has a lot of features within it. It seems to cover every conceivable angle for a website that has Paid Content/Access requirements.
It seemed a little daunting at first but the more I used it the more I realized that it was very well presented. Coupled with this were the excellent video tutorials available to those who purchase the component.

I made my first Paid Access area site within a short space of time and all my requirements were met.

I also use Front End User Access and it links up perfectly with AEC.
