JUX Weather Forecast
I wanted to get a weather widget for a customer's site and the JED Weather extension fit the need. It is nice and well laid out. I did have a small issue with the default download not being able to save the default location unless you lived in New York, NY. However, their technical support was aware of the issue and quickly guided me to a newer release for Joomla! 2.5 that solve the issue. If it wasn't for that small technical glitch, I would have given them 5 stars. Well worth the money. GW

ContentBuilder
Initially I installed Content Builder and navigated through the setup with minimal issues. The extension works great after it is configured. It took me while to get that worked out. Then I ran into a stumbling block with the final configuration. Thanks To DJ and the Crosstec Team for helping me through the issue. The extra for the subscription is well worth it in my opinion. Interfaces really nice with Breezing Forms as well. Great extension. Thanks for the assistance. G

BreezingForms
I started out building a form using another very popular form building extension. I have very little experience with writing Java or PHP. So I was looking for something that was user-friendly for those of us who lack these skills. From when I first installed Breezing Forms, it was clear this was a much easier user interface. This extension is flexible and allows the user to build a complex form with multiple pages with relative ease. NO CODING REQUIRED. However, you can customize the forms with some tweaks to the coding if you have the skill. In addition, the FAQ’s on the Crosstc website are very helpful and filled with specific detailed changes and adjustments to help enhance your form building.

For me, I was having some challenges with getting a date validation to recognize only future dates (for selecting a reservation) rather than past dates. This custom validation was available in the FAQ area and the Crosstec Support was quick to respond to my inquiry in less than 12 hours from when I submitted online. Other interactions with Support have received responses in as little as 1.5 hours time, quite remarkable!

I would recommend highly BREEZING FORMS for anyone (beginner to advanced web designer) for their application extension. Markus and his competent team have hit a home run in my book! This has helped make it a Merry Christmas for my website owners. Blessings, Gary W.

Ozio Gallery
I saw the Ozio Gallery and it looks great as a demo. I downloaded and installed it. However, the instructions are limited on how to get all the skins working. So I went to the forum and low and behold, it is entirely in Italian. Tried to get logged in and fumble through but could not understand the validation process.

So I now have installed the software with no support to make it work. Would be nice if there is an english version of the forum to solve any issues. Guess I will look elsewhere. Sorry.

aiContactSafe
I am a newbie to Joomla and needed a little assistance getting things up and running. Alex did an excelent job helping me customize the extension to meet my needs. The options provided in aiContactSafe are very well thought out and give the end user the ability to create a customized professional contact form on your website.
* Ease of Installation - Excellent
* Ease of Configuring - Good (probably due to being new to Joomla)
* Ability to Customize - Excellent
* Support for Product - Excellent (usually within a few hours)
* Professionalisim - Excellent

I would give this product a solid 5 stars and recomend this extension for anyone who is looking to enhance their website with a professional looking contact form.

Very well developed, Alex. Fantastic job.
