This worked where others failed

Functionality
After multiple updates to Joomla core, php, and components, my built-in template's megamenu stopped working. I tried others–only JUX worked!
100
Ease of use
The module administration was particularly well laid out. (Megamenus by nature aren't easy - but good design makes it easier.)
100
Support
Support is needed? (I now use other JUX products, and support there is fast and the developer is attentive.)
100
Documentation
Documentation page is clean, complete, well organized - with a helpful video
100
Value for money
Nine eurobucks? Great deal.
I used this to: Replaced the built in template megamenu from a top developer - this one simply works better.

I don;t write many negative reviews, but....

If the 'get PowR Plugins' all over your module is functionality, then it's perfect. Yes, I know, free - but use the footer. This was crass.

Ease of use
You sign up your feed on their cloud. Given my distrust these days, this is a questionable practice. Whose watching PowR? It works.

Can't use it.

Out of the box. Bonus! There's a custom CSS field in the module parameters.
100
Ease of use
Because Google requires an API it isn't painless - but that's on Google. The necessary links and docs are in the module settings.
100
Support
I was going to write a ticket (so yes, ticket system) but I figured out the problem before I sent it. Good forum.
100
Documentation
Good documentation both in the module and on their website.

Value for money
I hate spending money, but I also hate wasting time (which is the same thing).
I used this to: Video playlist for a client's foodie portal site. Had it running in 6 minutes.

Oh yes.

Magnifique!

As advertised. Works in all Joomla platforms - all the way up to 3.8.7 (current version)
100
Ease of use
Straightforward, if that's what is meant by ease of use. Set a default, then use the admin to assign custom favicons.
100
Support
Good software. doesn't need support.

Documentation
not much needed - self explanatory

I used this to: To aid user experience and wayfinding in several large websites

Well, after an afternoon, my store is up

Functionality
The component doesn't overreach. It does what it says, and does it well.
100
Ease of use
Given that this is an ecommerce product, it is not 'easy,' but is wired the way you'd expect, and in the end delivers the goods (literally)
100
Support
Going to score 100. I posted a couple queries, but solved my own problem first. Forum replies are answered promptly by the look of things
100
Documentation
Reasonably complete - a couple details I had to figure out for myself. But this is a major league app, and I like minimalism.
100
Value for money
If the developer fee keeps this ball rolling, happy to contribute.
I used this to: Self published music scores. One future feature I would like to see is a single-product module (or modal), so it could work inline with my music demos; I had to adapt to the component (and make the visitor go through an extra click).

Oh man... does this solve problems.

Better than advertised

Ease of use
This application is designed to solve complex problems, so it isn't 'easy,' but it IS intuitive.

Support
Not needed, but can't leave this at zero because...

Documentation
....excellent documentation (to say nothing of the intuituve UI) is the best kind of support
100
Value for money
Given that this saves valuable time when configuring sites that scale, I wouldn't consider not paying for it! Keep this team in business!
I used this to: Two large websites that have out of house contributors and an inhouse content team, each requiring access to a mind-boggling array of components, content items, and modules.

Solves the intractable ACL issues that arise when a website with multiple content vectors begins to scale.
I used this to: Two large sites with out of house contributors and tiered inhouse contributors, editors, and management all needing one kind of access or another.

All the missing stuff in Joomla

Amazing. Just....amazing.

Ease of use
For all this does, and it does a lot, it's actually rather intuitive. Very well thought out.
100
Support
I went a few months on the free version, and still got the equivalent of pro ticket help.
100
Documentation
Not much needed, but it's just as well thought out as the UI. Clean, well done.

Value for money
I used this to: After using it in trial mode on several sites, I bought the full package as it solved so many problems *my clients* were having editing their sites. It even works on the front end, - in the core component! - which is Joomla's biggest weakness.
