    I didn't heard and used CasperJS. But I know BotChief is easier to study and use than uBot, and there is free version.

    I am the creator of UBot Studio - and am of course happy and proud to tell you that up front. Just to be clear, since he wasn't, jsmith51208 is the creator of Botchief, so of course he thinks it's easier to use. >_>

    There's no real comparison between BotChief and UBot Studio.

    CasperJS / PhantomJS are good for some things, but if you're starting out, I really wouldn't recommend them. The fact is, UBot Studio is designed specifically with ease-of-use and web automation in mind, and has six years of constant development and over $1 million in Dev going into it, adding feature after feature that is requested by the community. If you're new to web automation, UBot is the way to go. You can build a posting bot in literally 1 minute, and it's drag and drop.

    I've PMed you in case you'd like to talk more about how to accomplish what you need. Good luck!

    But,U bot studio is so costly.Its just hard to afford without having a trial.I need it for a specific use.But,since I don't know whether it is going to help me or not.How can I just go and spend such a hefty amount?Atleast a couple of days of free trial should be offered.

    We have so many testimonials telling you that you're wrong, but I don't think it's worth my time to point out why a troll with 1 post isn't worth listening to.

    OP: A good 3rd party tool doesn't hold you to anything. It simply helps you accomplish something. If you use UBot and you decide to learn other programming languages, that's awesome. A LOT of our customers do that.

    In fact, we posted on our Facebook/Twitter page today a conversation with our customers about what additional languages would be good to check out. I'll share the relevant part of the answer I gave in the conversation:

    My answer in full, by the way, pointed out why Javascript is a pretty great starting point. Javascript would be useful if you're using PhantomJS (that's what the JS is for, obviously).

    Bottom line is that there is no perfect tool, just the perfect tool for the job. Over the last six years, UBot has been perfect for a lot of jobs, and I'm really proud of that.

    i suggest you to learn a programming language asap. instead of paying a high price for a box that you will always stay in, learn a programming language, be your own king, be free then create what you want..

    It probably takes over six weeks to build something in PhantomJS for a noob that would take like six days in UBot.

    It's not about being trapped, it's about what works best for your project....

    for short-term solution you are right, but after that 6... let's say 8 weeks, he can start to create nice bots by himself... forever... my opinion is if you are paying $xxx to buy a tool like that. (doesn't matter which one.) it has no sense.. just buy a professional program with professional support or if you want a custom bot, just go to fiverr or find someone that will code for you, meanwhile you can spend your time and money for your business. you're saying that it's not about being trapped, i'm sorry but it is.

    If you already know javascript then using casperjs is a no brainer. Infinitely more flexible, and you have more power.

    If you don't then a bot creator is probably less an investment in your time (and time is money).
