    Hi All

    Im thinking of buying EZ Gui but im not 100% convinced. If i look in the asset store there is no review of it.
    Ive been checking out their website from time to time but i dont see any updates of tutorial videos or anything
    like that. So if there is anyone that can push me in any direction please do.

    I also heard that Unity is working on a update on their GUI system.

    P.S. Is EZ GUI beeing constantly updated?

    Thanks alot in advance!

    Yes! I give it an enthusiastic recommendation! Great package, solid docs, excellent support. Very useful, especially if you are doing a mobile app.

    I wouldn't be as presumptuous as to tell you whether you should by my own product or not :))), but I can answer your questions about constant updates: yes.

    EZ GUI has had lots of new features added over the months. The last release (a few weeks ago) added a couple of new major features (such as easy screen-relative placement), and in the next beta alone there are lots of new features, of which at least 4 of them are major additions (easy-to-use drag drop support, virtual screens, scroll list snapping for iOS-like lists and page views, etc).

    I would definitely buy it :)

    I would love to give it a review, but as various others, I have bought it before it hit the store, so I can't give it a review :(

    Everyone will be positive towards brady's products. There won't really be any negative people. The biggest negative is the price :)

    To be fair you could try prime31's gui however its nowhere near as polished yet. Also you should lurk on brady's forums to get a gist of what paid users are saying.

    It's a great system. If you need a GUI system right now, you can't go wrong by buying it. Unity is *supposed* to be revamping it's own GUI system, but who knows when it will actually get released. Probably the day after you buy another system is usually how it works.
