The Joomla! Extensions Directory ™

My firm purchased this product for a site redux and installed it on a demo server for the clients review. Both the client and myself are very impressed at the added value this component provides to our project. It's price performance ratio can not be beat for a Joomla add on. This system does the best job of any I have seen in bringing your website members or clients together in a meaningful social fashion, making it super fun at the same time.

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!

As a veteran internet application developer my economic viability relies on my companies ability to write tools that aid in developing applications or even other tools. Some of these tools can take hundreds of man hours costing easily over $10,000. This tool just cut a fifty man hours off a project for us. I slapped down the 40 american dollars they were asking for the documents, as that was the least I could do for what I received as a free application. $40.00 for a full fledged tool that works is a steal. I feel guilty for using it!

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!
