As a fellow developer I sifted through the code before installing and found it solidly constructed and well commented. One heavy requirement I had from my client was for a bit of iPhone communication. I was easily able to figure out what the JomSocial code was doing and extend the API into the Apple mobile device line with little trouble.
I would recommend the JomSocial component to any serious development firm for use in their own client projects. The developer Azrul has been in the Joomla business for a while and is not going anywhere any time soon. Many other projects start off well and disappear quicker then expected. I do not expect that to be the case here. Also been following the plugins for this component and that list is growing, so they are definitely committed. The crew has been responsive on their forums which is another important factor for our choice.
I hope to see this project prosper well into the future. System architecture rock solid. I like it.
Thanks for producing this!
Not sure how any one could whine about that little amount of money. Any app that does anything of value has a learning curve. I spent a few hours and I am comfortable. Great job fellows.
I give this five stars!
