Tour My App Alternative: Nickelled

Our honest review of Tour My App

We had a few usability problems with Tour My App which colored our overall perception of the tool. It now seems to have been retired and the secured domain is no longer live, but we're leaving this review up in case it's useful.

Although signup was simple enough and we were able to install the Chrome extension without a problem, we hit some issues when we tried to create a guide and were unable to select an element on the page for a step to point to. It took repeated tries to get the guide creation process to work, and we were unable to properly preview the guide we created once finished.

Tour My App offers a simple 'Tour List Widget' to showcase the tours in an account. All other types of launch must be triggered using the javascript extension, which requires some code changes to the site - although the documentation is clear and straightforward to follow.

A neat feature of Tour My App are the in-built themes, which makes picking a color scheme that suits your preferences fairly easy.

Tour My App's pricing is relatively simple, although the view-based model will make pricing expensive for any businesses wishing to scale.

When should I choose Nickelled over Tour My App?

We recommend Nickelled for those who are looking for a more problem-free solution to guide creation, and especially for those who don't wish to install javascript on their site (or require the site to be live at all).

Users must install a Chrome extension to author/test Tour My App tours, which may not be possible for some users.

Finally, Tour My App offers professional services for clients from $100 per hour, which may limit the scope of support offered to those who do not wish to pay.
