Likelihood to Recommend

Appsee

Appsee was a great choice and addition before their struggle with Apple over user screen recording. Now that that's gone, its insights are rather basic and not worth the price point. This would be a perfect analytics platform for a company looking to increase its user experience, new on-boarding, or going through a redesign to see user activity and reactions, but not anymore.

Swrve is a very user-friendly solution for mobile app communication needs. Thein-app communication templates make creating content and messages very quick and easy to do.

Cons

Appsee

  • The user screen recording was quickly shut down on Apple devices after about a week of us using Appsee. Now it's just basic boxes which aren't nearly as helpful or insightful in bettering our user experience. If we would have known this would happen, or that Appsee didn't have that feature, we wouldn't have gone with them.
  • No integration with Branch (the world's best and probably biggest attribution platform).

  • Ability to customize the main dashboard

Alternatives Considered

Appsee

Appsee set itself apart from competitors with the user screen recording, but since that is no longer a good feature on iOS, it makes Appsee's competitive advantage obsolete. Its data analytics, funnels, and crash reporting are relatively basic or haven't lead to any breakthroughs. I would stay away from Appsee, save your money, and go for a platform like Mixpanel if possible, which has analytics, attribution, and engagement for the same if not cheaper price.

Swrve

Localytics' Analytics interface was more simple to use, but we chose Swrve primarily for the messaging capabilities and the analytics were a bonus. We found Swrve's messaging to be far superior to Localytics and really benefitted from the Eloqua integration so that we could control all our communications from the same platform

Return on Investment

Appsee

  • It now costs much more than the competitors, and has fewer features/functionality than when it started, so I would say it's a negative impact as we're paying about $300-400 month for this.

Swrve

  • Our app usage and engagement has increased since implementing Swrve.
  • We solved a major business need of giving users real time push alerts for important account actions.
  • Increasing our communication channels and focusing on a more holistic cross-channel strategy led to an increase in email success also.
