    Only ($249 + $149 yearly renew) premium edition and higher only support mobile browsers. All lower editions look crap on mobile browsers. Since most of the users use mobile devices all the lower editions are useless in real world usage.
    No refunds offered. So forced to upgrade to premium or money in drain. No trials to test before buy.

    Arrowchat has mobile support from cheap basic edition and trial edition available too.

    I've bought the professional version ($129) about a year ago. My users like to chat, but soon we've experienced some issues. Some of the last chat text lines were missing from time to time. Maybe this was a caching issue. Support fixed the issue, but unsustainable. We had the same issue several times. It was also not possible to get an answer from the support what caused the issue and how it was fixed.
    Then, after a year, I logged into my user account, downloaded the latest available package for me and updated. Now the chat for mobile is broken. Also server load is too high. All in all there are too many issues for a software in this price range.
    $129 + $64 per year license renewal for a single addon(!) which means after 5 years the costs for the chat addon are as high as for the complete xenforo package.
    If a friend would ask me if I can recommend cometchat for xenforo my answer is a resounding NO.

    Great Add-on! My members love it, but contacting support is a pain. I had two issues, one issue was that I couldn't view the bar on the site, this was solved after two days of contacting support. The second issue is that I keep getting an internal server error on the ComeChat admin page, and when I click chatrooms or announcements it also shows the same error. I contacted support about it and this has taken almost three days and still hasn't been solved.

    I followed the installation instructions verbatim and the plugin doesn't work on my site. The Cometchat team attempted to help me, but the process was taking far too long and I gave up. Seems like a cool add-on, but really needs to work out of the box. Good support though.

      That's unfortunate and let me apologize for this experience. I request you to please give us another chance to fix this, would you be kind enough to inbox the ticket details so I can check with the support team?

      Kind Regards,
