Functionality
we run many client sites; event booking , fourms , jobsites, community groups .. we can mix and match Sobipro into other joomla components
Ease of use
small learning curve, well worth it, you endup with full control
Support
need to be a memeber basically , but this covers maps, reviews, contact , migration and a full length apps so excellent value small money
Documentation
good ,there is also lots of in app information bubble information
Value for money
omg .. in the long run .. you want the fastest lightest most open code .. for small money your set to go for a decase
I used this to: client sites ; event listing integration with maps and business listings , jobsites , classified sites , social integration with joomsocial CB etc ..
Functionality
I have used many Joomla components and this one seemed to offer all the functionality I required and it does. But regret using it
Ease of use
I have invested a lot of time using this. But find it incredibly frustrating to use and work with nothing is intuitive.
Support
Lack of free-forum support to get simple answers, not a large enough user base. Paid support is overpriced
Documentation
The website is complicated to navigate and impossible to find what you need. You tend to go around in circles.
Value for money
Heavily overpriced, I would not use it again on another project. Minimal access to updates unless you overpay
I used this to: I use SobiPro for a non-commercial business website database. It does the job, but I wouldn't use it again
Owner's reply: Thank you for this review, even if it's not entirely fair. I really did my best to help you, but without access to the server/website it's difficult to give you the support that we normally give.
--Sigrid
Functionality
Index listing with the usual fast search , templates to get started, dynamic contact form and joomla integrations
Ease of use
uncluttered templates and easy configuration panels , suitable for the Joomla admin to operate
Support
Ticket system is re-active , subscription is required, the community pages can be hard to find answers but support tickets are responded to
Documentation
Excellent documentation, just follow the documentation and use full screen hints
Value for money
The right choice - thats the value, otherwise you will waste time on others over time. Great value completely useful as free option
I used this to: Job Listing Websites, itegrated to community builder and subspro; like deal .ie jobsdone ie donedeal .ie
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for this review. Such reviews motivate us to further develop and improve SobiPro.
Functionality
Constantly issues with the license update. You have to resubmit keys all the time.
Ease of use
Became very difficult to use over time. Became very difficult to use over time.
Support
Very slow to non-responding. Very slow to non-responding. Very slow to non-responding.
Documentation
Average. Average. Average. Average. Average. Average. Average. Average.
Value for money
There are better directory components out for a lot let money and better functionallity.
I used this to: Making bread, what else? Making bread, what else? Making bread, what else?
Owner's reply: > From Free to Expensive
SobiPro is still one of the cheapest directory components for Joomla on the market. You really should try SobiPro 2!

> Constantly issues with the license update. You have to resubmit keys all the time.
For your security, our repository is SSL secured. Therefore, you must resubmit the subscription token once a year, as the SSL certificate is no longer valid. We can't do anything about that, because it's not in our hands. Also, you need to resubmit the subscription token every time you renew your subscription to let our servers know about it. To reduce the number of resubmits, buy longer-term subscriptions. If you need to resubmit the token more often, then you DO NOT use SobiPro 2!

> Became very difficult to use over time.
Apparently you haven't used SobiPro 2 yet. The new user interface offers a great user experience and a lot of functions have been simplified and improved.

> Very slow to non-responding.
As our support usually replies within 24 hours on workdays, you obviously haven't had a subscription yet.

> There are better directory components out for a lot let money and better functionallity.
Really??

In summary, it looks like you haven't used SobiPro 2 yet, nor have you purchased a subscription for it, but are leaving a negative review because it's now paid.
YOU MUST rate the SobiPro 2 component here, not SobiPro 1 and not our business.

Thank you
