Appcues
It is well suited for SaaS products or services that have a highly complex user interface. Through Appcues, you can ensure that people discover all the existing and new features and make them understand the value of your product as soon as possible to address the evergreen issue of churn. But if your user interface is really messed up, you should change the product itself instead of using a tool like Appcues to explain everything on the screen.

SurveySparrow
Well getting surveys from clients is a hectic job (as a user we all ignore surveys all the time ) SurveySparrow comes to the rescue and provides links to forward your survey on WhatsApp, email, and so many options. You can create a copy of the survey which you created and that is very time efficient. Suppose you have 3 clients and you give them the same service you can add a variable that will simply change the name of the client and the rest of the survey stays the same no need to create a different survey, mega time saver.

SurveySparrow
  • Creating and sending surveys is very easy and intuitive, no instructions needed. The interface is clean and inviting.
  • The mobile-first interface greatly increases response rates form my experience. Filling out a survey is like text messaging on your phone.
  • Surveys are more conversational in tone rather than an answer to the question style of the survey most other companies offer.
  • The feature set is not as robust as some other survey software but its simplicity makes it easy to use all around.
  • Customer support is very responsive.

Cons
Appcues
  • We were extremely surprised that there are not any Appcues used in Appcues. The app is pretty easy to use, once you figure out how to use it. There were not any type of tutorials when we logged in that quickly walked through how to setup a flow.
  • Appcues has lots of support articles, however they are almost so numerous that it was hard to find simple onboarding documentation that we found useful.
  • The different tooltips and product actions are great, but being able to customize the different cues a little bit more by changing sizes and aspect ratios could be an improvement.

Appcues
It has a much, much better user interface, better customer care, and of course better pricing. This along with the fact that they were very accommodating for our use case ensured we went ahead with Appcues.

We originally used Survey Monkey but found customer support to be unresponsive when we needed it and also the style of surveys you could create were bland and boring, leading to lower response rates. We chose Survey Sparrow for their mobile-first and chat-style survey interface because we have a mobile audience and have found they prefer this style of survey better.
