Overall Satisfaction with Apify
I am the first (and as of now, only, as far as I know) user of Apify at my organization. I am currently working on a research project that requires a great deal of data collection from a platform that is traditionally unfriendly towards web scraping. After facing many problems with existing solutions and solutions I built, I decided to give Apify a try. Apify easily handled everything I needed it to handle, and it has opened up more time for me to perform detailed analysis as a researcher.
- User-friendly interface
- Free/low cost trial with no commitment
- Apify has increased the speed at which I am able to collect data many times over
- Python IDLE and RStudio
Although the purposes and aims of all three products vary widely, I have found Apify to be the most effective option for web scraping for academic purposes. As someone with only a few months' worths of experience with web scraping, I have found Apify's detailed blog posts and very friendly customer support invaluable in my research.
Do you think Apify delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Apify's feature set?
Did Apify live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Apify go as expected?
Would you buy Apify again?
In my own experience (primarily in academia), Apify is very well suited for web scraping projects that require data collection from websites that are designed to prevent most data collection. I will certainly recommend Apify to my research colleagues and classmates because of its effectiveness in gathering the necessary data and offering a human-friendly interface from start to finish.
