Roadmap for the Mobile App v2.0

Roadmap for the Mobile App v2.0

Hiya Everyone!

First, thank you very much for all the suggestions and improvements you suggested to all of the apps. As promised, putting down here the features and plan for the v2.0 of the combined app (P.S. It's v2.0 directly to avoid any version naming confusion). The combined app will sport Easysocial, Easyblog & JGive to start with. Here's a list of features for each section that will be available in v2.0. Most of these features were already available in the respective singular apps, but since the combined app is a significant rewrite, listing down all the features.

We're still working out a date for this release, and late October / early November seems to be working out. I'm still discussing with the Stackideas team in regards to the Easysocial APIs, will update with a date soon!

JGive (formerly jomGive) - Donations & Fund Raising for Joomla is here! Rewritten from Scratch with awesome new features

JGive-is-here

It gives us great pleasure to introduce JGive the Fundraising & Donations extension for Joomla. After we took over the reigns of JomGive from CorePHP, we wanted to take it to a completely new level. The result is right in front of you... JGive!

 JGive is a powerful  “crowdfunding” extension that enables your members to create fundraising projects; accept donations; and keep donors updated on the project’s progress. We have written this component from scratch to get the kind of flexibility & scalability needed for an extension like this. Packed with awesome new features like Multiple Campaign support, support for multiple payment gateways, Fully Bootstrapped frontend, Commissions & much much more, this release is sure to please you!

With JGive 1.0, JomSocial is no longer a necessary item. You can use it with plain Joomla, Community Builder, JomSocial - as you want. We are still giving an awesome integration with JomSocial with Activity stream updates & a Profile display plugin which means we have lost none of the old jomGive features while adding a lot more!
