You can build a number of usable bots, but in my experience they aren't as robust as coding your own solution from the ground up. I guess UBot is good to get you by while you work on something better.
I purchased a few weeks ago and eventually I'll be writing up a full review on my website but here is my quick opinion to the OP. You know some objective-c so why not try building a bot in C# (Visual Studio).
I'm impress with UBot's drap and drop interface but when you get stuck with a task you're trying to accomplish I find the support forums lacking. Don't get me wrong as there are people they may help but most are either selling training programs or the own source code for bots.
Compare this to a technet or MSDN subscription. I should also add that there are tons of books related to C#.
I heard that most of people are using it to automate their methods and their earnings. I think that they have more packages for different budgets
I personally don't like to use bots made from Ubot studio as it sucks the living crap from my CPU, grinding my old computer to a crawl. But yeah, the stuff you can make with it is pretty neat. So on the dev side (Jr devs use this the most I believe), it's pretty neat.
for non programmers, it is very useful and handy. For programmers, visual studio will do a much better job giving you more flexibility.
I use it and it really helps me. I'm not a programmer and I think the learning curve is not that easy but not too hard also, you need logic.
For what it can do for the money is a go. More complex applications require python or c# I think.
As mentioned the best bots are going to be hand coded in C#, Python, etc. But UBot is worth its weight in gold. UBot is a usage hog but if you get a Windows VPS you can run multi-threaded bots all day no problem. I personally use UBot for dev AND marketing and I can yell you first hand it's bought itself MANY times over. Definitely worth it.
Its really hard on my cpu. I had an instagram bot made with ubot and I tried to run 3 Instagram accounts with it. My 4*3.40Ghz Xeon Cpu was maxing out completely. I found the a c# bot for Instagram some time later and it could easily handle 200 threads and probably a lot more. I mean you can build simple bots with it but if you are looking to multithread tasks I would not recommend it. So keep that in mind
I am also keeping my eye on Ubot, can it do Windows based task aswell?
It's nice for small tasks. I have ubot for 3 years now and from what i've seen, Zeno is better
Ubot is great but Zeno is better.
Im using zenno, and i must say after you are done with the learning curve.Everything is easy .
Agree with some of the comments here, it CAN be a huge CPU / memory hog but if its used properly then the resource problem can be minimised. For people like me its a cracking tool and what has been promised in the upcoming version 5 may make everything a lot easier.
Like most programming, there is a steep learning curve but once you have the basics mastered you are sorted. THere are some great plugins being built by people that you can by to make a few things a bit easier but you don't have to buy them.
I have been using it since it first came out and although there have been rocky patches in terms of support and company direction, I think (well, hope) that will all change when Version 5 is launched.
Summary - I have the dev version and its made my money back multiple times over and I can now get a basic bot out of the door in an hour. It does what it says on the tin and, again in my opinion, it is much better than other automation products on the market.
imo this tool is dead, im for zennoposter now
Ubot studio is a very useful and valuable tool , I also agree with a lot of the comments here, if they can get the CPU usage under control and also get away form using IE for a browser (because we all know that IE is the worst browser on the market) Then nothing could beat it, except for hand coded bots. With that said having ubot on hand to automate tedious tasks quickly and test new methods, has truly helped me prosper as a internet marketer.
With UBot I'm automating my life one of my best invests
It is a very useful tool to automate some of the things you would do manually but when it comes to robust bots, ubot studio alone will not handle it. I am using ubot studio to do some things that would save me some programming. There is a forum at ubot studio. Check it out there and ask some of the experts that sells ubot bots before you purchase it.
If you are looking to do complex tasks, then ubot will be limited. If you can manage to program with Visual Studio, then ubot can become a dance partner to help you do certain things.
Sometimes you can't get everything done through one bot. You may want to write a bot using ubot to scrape things and then you may write a bot using C# to automate using that data.
Anyhow, I hope you got the point... hope it helps.
There is windows-based automation. Here's a tutorial video explaining the features: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2AGRYwyUqU
