Chameleon vs Userflow: Get More Customization and Control Over In-App UX

Trusted by leading SaaS companies to drive growth

Why high-growth teams look for a Userflow alternative

Three words: tooltip, bubble, modal. They're the only UX patterns you can use to create onboarding or adoption flows. Teams who are leaving Userflow part ways to look for more flexible flow builders.

As well as the constraints of customization, teams switch from Userflow to look for more integrations, better triggering options, and more flexible "dismiss" options, e.g. Snoozing.

Good news, Chameleon helps you with all of the above 😉

Will Chameleon support my app's framework?

Chameleon can function with a wide variety of apps. It fully supports JavaScript web application frameworks such as Angular, React, Vue, and web applications wrapped in Cordova and Ionic Capacitor. It also supports single-page apps (SPAs), though certain features like interface change events, interaction events, and highlighting/dynamic-positioning based on elements aren't available for Flutter SPAs.

Chameleon can operate across your own iFrames if the Chameleon snippet is installed within them. N-level deep Shadow DOM is also supported.

For mobile platforms, Chameleon supports mobile web apps built to be responsive, adjusting as elements move based on browser size. However, it does not support native mobile apps.

The system also works well with apps with dynamic URLs and multiple subdomains, including multiple products or environments with different domains, given that the Chameleon code is installed across all these platforms.

Finally, note that Chameleon requires an initial page load to identify users and it polls regularly to check whether a tour should be displayed based on changing criteria (page URL or user activity).

Check out this help center page for more information on frameworks that Chameleon supports.
