As a newbie I have been stumbling my way through developing my first joomla based website - so far tested 4 chat programs and for me this is the only one that worked as advertised (and one of only 2 that worked at all for me!).

It has all the features I need - installation was a breeze it uploaded and installed first time.

Unlike some I didnt find the configuration terribly easy ..... but then as I said I AM a neewbie - and i did find it ! So thats probably a credit to the designer :)

Personally I regret the lack of documentation - its not really needed I guess as the program is easy. But it would have made a big difference to my confidence in installing and configuring.

Although there are no docs I had a couple of questions - posted them in the support forum and got an answer from the developer same day ! Fantastic support especially as this software is provided free to the user!!!!

In terms of cosmetics the interface is fairly basic which seems to be a common thing but it does contain all the basics one really needs.

I would have no hesitation reccomending blast chat - if there is a better free / reasonably priced joomla chat component out there then I didnt find it !

As a Joomla noob I downloaded this to add to a website where I wanted to feature events held by different clubs.

Installation was a fast and easy.

It seemed to allow easy editing from the front or back end.

It looks good - it has yet to be trialed "in the wild" but so far there is nothing negative to say about this product it installed first time and "did what it said on the tin".

Would be nice to have some extra integration features but these might come in future releases I guess.

To the developers THANK YOU for this product :)
