Core Enhancements, Mobile, Libraries

jBackend gives you all the power of Joomla CMS through an extensible and pluggable set of REST API. With these API you can access to all site's contents and features, and use Joomla as a backend system for smartphone and mobile apps, syndication networks, external websites, and provide web services for any external system. Furthermore jBackend provides a full push notifications platform for iOS and Android mobile apps. It allows to define multiple apps, to register devices for each app, and to schedule push notifications sending on registered devices, filtered by app and platform type.

Functionality
This is working fine for me till now. I have tested a lot and I have never faced any big issue.
Ease of use
Cant say easy to use but then if you are looking for a big task atleast you should have big brains.
Support
Support is exceptional. By mistake I paid for another component but the developer was kind enough to change the order.
Documentation
Very Good documentation is available but I feel to create a custom jbackend plugin there should be some easy examples.
Value for money
No doubt about the product as for this much less money you are getting such an excellent product.
I used this to: My food website that I am integrating with Andriod. My App will be over soon.

Nice Plugin

Functionality
The full version ships the most API which can help us build more interactive apps
Ease of use
Drag and drop very intuitive
Support
Support could be better. This plugin doesn't support Joomla 3.8.3 by the time of writing. Seemingly it only supports up to version 3.7.0
Documentation
Value for money
I'd love to pay for it. Hope it can add support for joomla v3.8.3

Excellent

Functionality
Everything I needed and loads more.
Ease of use
Very easy to setup
Support
Documentation
One of the best documentation pages I have seen.
Value for money
For what you get, very reasonably priced.
Functionality
Clean and concise UI. I've had it working with an iOS App I'm developing to compliment one of my websites in less than an hour.
Ease of use
Very easy to use especially since the documentation is very well written and clear with step by step instructions
Support
Haven't need it yet, don't see any need for it. Documentation is brilliant so support is great to date.
Documentation
Very well written.
Value for money
At €15 this is too cheap. Given how much time it's saved me in development I think it should be re-priced at min €49.99 or more.
I used this to: A new website I'm creating based on the latest Joomla 3.7.0 and an iOS App. Might do an Android one too if it's a success.
I like it so much I'm now thinking of retro-fitting it into an older commercial website I have.
Functionality
There is nothing missing. Everything you need to develop mobile apps with a Joomla backend is here.
Ease of use
If you know what you want to produce, jBackend will let you do it. I most appreciated the additional materials provided like example apps.
Support
Documentation
Value for money
It would be impossible to duplicate this functionality for many hundreds of times the cost.
I used this to: mobile app development
Functionality
This component is the missing piece for transforming Joomla into a powerful backend service for mobile apps
Ease of use
If you read carefully the documentation you will figure out in minutes how to use this API to start making API calls and receiving data.
Support
The developer is cool ! A really nice and helpful guy !
Documentation
Documentation it's straightforward providing usage examples in a way that any beginner can understand them.
Value for money
No doubt, worth every penny. The price is actually too low for such a powerful REST API
I used this to: Developing a native Android app for a web project built on Joomla.

Great for integration

This is a really useful extension for developers who want to integrate with Joomla content. Aimed at developers though.
Ease of use
Great system, nice extensible architecture.
Support
I've not used support, so can't say really.
Documentation
Excellent, details and well illustrated.
Value for money
14 Euros at the moment, so excellent value really.
I used this to: We have used this for a Joomla back-end to a set of iOS and Android Apps. So app admin staff use Joomla to create content that is pushed to the App. Joomla is also used to control App settings and options.
