Looking for a UX testing tool and comparing what’s out there? We get it; everyone wants to explore their options. But we wanted to make things a little easier for you. So we put together the 8 ways in which TryMyUI and Userbrain differ:

1. Simple sign up vs too much data

When it comes to TryMyUI signing up takes a few minutes, whereas with Userbrain it’s more like a few seconds. We won’t ask you for any excessive personal details, all you need to add is your email and a password and you’re good to go.

2. Userbrain offers better value for money

When you choose one of our plans, our user tests become a lot more affordable than TryMyUI’s.

At Userbrain you pay $39 per test, mobile or desktop – and only $29.9 per test (or even less if billed annually) when you choose one of our plans.

Compared to TryMyUI - where you pay up to 70 dollars for each test - that’s a fraction of the cost.

This means that you can save up to 65% compared with Userbrain.

3. Credit rollover vs. losing out

At both TryMyUI and Userbrain we have a credit system. One credit = 1 UX test. When you subscribe to a monthly plan, you get a certain number of credits assigned to your account every single month. All good so far.

But, because as a founding team of UX Designers, we know that things can change, you might not need tests one month and a ton of them another. We’ve decided that should you not make use of test credits one month - we’ll roll them over. That way you’ll never lose out or pay for a service you’re not making use of.

4. Complex test task vs. simplicity

Setting up a user test with TryMyUI is complex and honestly - a little draining. You have to answer a ton of unnecessary questions and tick boxes which you haven't quite figured out the meaning of yet.

At Userbrain we are all about keeping things simple and efficient, so you can not just get testing,but so you can also just focus on the most important metrics and setting a good task scenario. No fuss.

5. Test scenario draft

We know that coming up with a test scenario, especially for the first time, can be a bit challenging, which is why we decided to integrate generic test instructions - so you can get a feel of what you should write for your testers. This makes setting up your first tests easier and help you get into the swing of things faster.

6. Intuitive design vs. complexity

At Userbrain we do our best to not only talk the talk but also walk the walk. We are four UX Designers who wanted to have this kind of tool in our lives, recognised a need and built the product.

We don’t just want to help our customers improve their UX and UI - we want to have the best possible one for you too. Userbrain has a clean, modern interface optimized for efficient user testing - which will save you time, money and frustration. Whereas TryMyUI doesn’t seem to set such a good example.

7. Standard user testing features

TryMyUI unlock more or less features, depending on which plan you sign up for, while at Userbrain you have access to all features needed to carry out standard unmoderated remote user tests, as well as access to our worldwide pool of testers -No matter what you signed up for.

8. Automated user testing vs. manual

To really figure out what’s working or not you should carry out UX tests more than once, ideally at regular intervals. With Userbrain you can subscribe & save to test regularly and turn it into a habit - rather than a once-off thing you forget to check up on.

Just a few more reasons to make the switch…
