Long Time bug and lack of support

Functionality
We've tried to use this on our membership based site. The pop up window has had a bug for over 6 months whereby the search feature fails.

Ease of use
The basic functions were easy enough to configure in the backend. Frontend usability was not a straightforward

Support
We reported a bug over 6 months ago and were promised a response. Our support ticket was then closed 2 times without any further response.

Value for money
If it had better support it would be worth it.

The plugin works exactly as advertised. We've tested all configurations and everything was perfect.

It took less than 5 minutes to set it up.

The support from the developer is great. Response times are extremely quick and he even produced a customized version of the plugin for us.

Very good. Everything is clearly explained.

Broken Product

Functionality
While this seems like a good idea, it doesn't work with recent joomla/jomsocial releases. Just using their test app on IOS reveals problems
50
Ease of use
The basic functions are easy to configure, but there's no documentation for the deeper stuff
1
Support
Their support forum is basically dead.
30
Documentation
The component itself offers very little documentation and the IOS SDK has even less.

I used this to: Was hoping to use it to give clients of our site an easy access experience, but we'll have to look elsewhere.

Poor responsive implementation


Posted on 17 June 2014
We purchased this and attempted to implement it on our joomla 3.3 site. We found out that if you use articles as your content (probably what most people would want) then the module is not responsive, and the layout look like their demo. We tried getting support, but they wanted ftp access which we do not give to 3rd parties. We asked again for whatever code changes they would make to fix the problem, but they never responded.

Not truly responsive


Posted on 11 April 2014
We've installed this on a joomla 3.x site. The overall setup is straightforward, although as others have mentioned there is no documentation. For the most part it works well. However, I think people are interested in this for its responsive capabilities. Unfortunately, they have not made the caption text responsive. So while its great that your slide image will scale down on smaller screen sizes, the caption text will not. You have to be knowledgable enough to set up your own media queries to handle this.



Also there has been reported an issue of all of the slides appearing briefly during page load. We have this issue as well. This may be a show stopper for some.

Great module and great support


Posted on 12 February 2014
The module is fantastic as it allows an incredible amount of customization which really allows you to fit it into your site design nicely. We had an issue where another addon was utilizing bootstrap and the style names were conflicting. Bob quickly provided some additional css styles to add to the module and everything was perfect again.

Works great


Posted on 22 May 2013
We were looking for something to keep our content pushed out to our members. We purchased the jomsocial plugins for this component and have been very happy. We found a few quirks along the way and we got responses to our trouble tickets within a day each time. The component is easily styled to match the look and feel of your site. Its fairly easy to configure as well.

Good, but has problems


Posted on 28 April 2013
We installed this on a joomla 2.5 site. The overall layout and functionality seem decent. This seems to be what disqus wants you to use as it is the only joomla addon referred to on their site.



Unfortunately, support from Joomlaworks is non-existent. For that reason we will be uninstalling it and looking for something else.

Works great

This extension works as advertised. No problems at all. We had a special requirement that it work inside of another plugin and the developer make a quick modification for us and all is well. Would definitely recommend.
