Overall Satisfaction with Chameleon

We are using Chameleon to build our product introduction/walkthrough. This helps get our new users started with a minimal touch, and without having them read long documentation (nobody reads long documentation). We use it with our startup team, for one product. Our app is a single-page web app, and this is an ideal lightweight solution.
  • Super easy installation/setup particularly if you use Segment.
  • Improved and relatively easy to learn UI.
  • Great minimal/elegant design of the elements that get displayed to your users.
  • There are not quite as many interactive elements as I'd like to see, but enough to get the job done.
  • The general editing UI is good, but some of the elements could be easier to discover. You sort of have to trial-and-error your way to success.
  • Documentation is fairly light. If you really want to dig in, you'll find it lacking. Luckily support was awesome and fast.
  • Saved us time/money building extensive documentation.
  • Quicker to implement a few other solutions. We have access to an enterprise product for FREE, but we chose not to use it because implementation was too cumbersome.
We had some colleagues try to implement WalkMe with their Single page app and it was a disaster getting it to work (it eventually did, mostly). Because we already use Segment, we thought we'd give Chameleon a try and it was very easy. I built my first tour in an hour or two.
Seems like a great solution for web-based apps and sites when you want to communicate with your users in a fairly lightweight way. Users can "escape" from your guided tours relatively easily. Not sure how it would work for a combined web and mobile experience. Also, if you have a responsive layout, the layout of the guide sometimes breaks - you have to be careful.
