Simply blew my users' minds off!
SIMGallery is one of those extensions that, upon using, simply "WOW"s you. It is so packed with features that it's really difficult to review it properly!

There are many things I just LOVE about the component. From the tagging feature (that is wayyyy better than JomSocial's) to the VERY intuitive photo browsing. My users are REALLY impressed with the profile picture management, especially the part where you can simply use your webcam to take a photo and upload it immediately. Allowing users to upload multiple profile pictures to choose from, and the ability to select any photo to become their profile photo is also very useful. In fact, they even thought that I somehow got the script from Facebook! (SIMGallery *really* works exactly like Facebook)

When I first got the component, I had some troubles with javascript conflicts (I'm a web newbie!) but Mike was really responsive and the support was just fantastic!

I really recommend everyone to take a look at the demo on his site, and be prepared to be amazed. Can't wait for the next version and see what new goodies there will be!

Good surprise
I was sceptical at first but the characteristic that allows it to work with and separate form JomSocial Gallery won me over. I'm not mentioning it's other features since they have been beautifully described in the other reviews.

Must Disconnect Jomsocial Gallery
While I was initially impressed with how this 'addon' works with Jomsocial. I ran into a problem - it seems the Built-in Jomsocial Gallery, and all of it's features, must be disconnected - the two cannot live together.
Trying to upload a photo from the Jomsocial front-end results in the photo not showing up in any album. Gone also it the ability to Google Map any photo.. And use of the Latest Photos on the main page of Jomsocial. it remains blank.

I was disappointed to learn this after purchasing use of the common core and pro add-on (expensive by standards) - as the advertisements do not reflect 'any' disconnections required.

You may be happy to know that SIMGallery is now able to function as a completely separate gallery from JomSocial's gallery. This is configurable of course, in case users wish to replace JomSocial's gallery with SIMGallery.
