What is Product Fruits?
Product Fruits is one of the newest players on the user adoption playground. It promises to help you create beautiful onboarding experiences to your onboarding users.
If you have been researching customer experience and user adoption platforms, you probably know that each tool has something, a key feature, or a few that makes it stand out.
Not our new friend here, though.
Product Fruits is the average at anything and everything, including features, pricing, and support.
Onboarding with product fruits consists of six features, which are:
- Product tours
- Hints (hotspots and tooltips)
- In-app announcements
- Feedback and NPS surveys,
- A life ring button that works as a help center and live chat tool.
To some extent, you can customize the tool, and honestly, it is an inexpensive product for those with an MAU of 1500 or lower.
But can you tell me one tool that doesn’t already have all these features?
To top all that, the tool isn’t fully cooked yet and has so many disadvantages, and it makes me question if it’s going to be able to live in the market.
Let me get into a bit more detail:
Pros 🤩 Product Fruits is good for:
✅ For newly starting businesses with low MAU, the pricing of Product Fruits is reasonable enough to be called “affordable”.
✅ The tool’s in-app features are comprehensive enough to tackle most onboarding problems if you have the time to enhance those features with integrations to make them complete.
Cons 😮💨 Product Fruits isn’t good for:
❌ To start using the tool, you need to complete three different tours consisting of modals, which means that you are constantly reading rather than seeing it in action. A tool that promises to help onboard users and customers should be able to onboard its own clients, right?
❌ Reviewers on Capterra said that the tool constantly improves and updates almost every other week. But, unfortunately, this process of being like a beta-tester may cause more harm than good.
❌ The tool has all the necessary integrations with analytics tools, but nothing other. You can’t import your resource center materials and you can’t connect your CRM if you aren’t using Hubspot.
Product Fruits Pricing
- Core Plan: $59/month for up to 1500 MAU, $259/month for 10000 MAU
- Boost Plan: $109/month for up to 1500 MAU, $379/month for 10000 MAU
- Enterprise Plan: Custom quote for more than 50,000 MAU
What is UserGuiding?
UserGuiding is a product adoption platform that doubles down on customer and user onboarding with powerful in-app elements.
It is a “no-code” product that everyone, regardless of their technical background, can set up and start using immediately.
Also, UserGuiding costs below the average of similar products but provides the same value – if not more.
Here is what you can create with UserGuiding:
- Interactive Product Tours,
- Tooltips and Hotspots,
- In-app messages
- User Onboarding Checklists,
- Resource Centers,
- NPS Surveys,
- In-Depth Analytics
- And custom user segments.
Pros 🤩 UserGuiding is good for:
✅ The #1 strength of UserGuiding is the value it provides for the price it costs. UserGuiding offers a full set of no-code engagement and adoption elements for as little as $69/month.
✅ Unlike many other competitors, UserGuiding’s interface is very user-friendly so that even first-time users can set up and publish their own product engagement sequences.
✅ UserGuiding is also very customizable. You can play with your engagement elements’ shape, color, positioning, and much more.
✅ UserGuiding provides 24/7 customer support. This means that customers can get help quickly – no matter which time zone they are in – and solve their problems without friction.
Cons 😮💨 UserGuiding isn’t good for:
❌ Since UserGuiding’s main focus is onboarding, the analytics features it provides might not be enough for some companies. However, the tool provides various integration options with most analytics tools.
❌ UserGuiding does support multiple languages, but it doesn’t have a built-in localization feature yet.
❌ Although you can use UserGuiding for employee training as well as user adoption, the features for employee engagement might be a bit simpler than you expect.

Product Fruits vs UserGuiding
