    Hey all! Not sure if this is the right place to post this at all (making my first posts since registering in 2009!) but I have a question to ask y’all.

    I’m considering getting UBot or Zenno Poster, and was wondering which one would be a better fit for me – anyone who has any experience with either, please shout out!

    A little bit about what I intend to use it for:

    Definitely the usual account creation, link generation, web scraping etc

    But I also really want to be able to perform non-SEO based automation efficiently – e.g. playing a browser-based game for me, or collecting from a faucet, or performing non browser-related tasks


    Cost itself is not an issue, but I’d prefer not to pay for UBot if I wouldn’t end up really needing it.

    Any advice would be awesome guys, thanks!

    There's a learning curve to uBot I believe but that just means there's more you can do with it. For your general purposes I would go for uBot.

    IMHO Zenno is more convinient for me. Beside that you can find a lot of webmasters who can crreate you bots on their support forum.
    Another free bot creator tool is BrowserAutomationStudio by http://bablosoft.com/shop/BrowserAutomationStudio (No coding skills required! Code in visual constructor.)

    Here is bot creator. He official from Zenno support team

    Sorry forgot to mention - I can code - I was a CS major in college, so that's really not an issue either.

    Ease of use definitely is though.

    Is there anything that UBot isn't compatible for that Zenno is, or vice versa? Anything big that stands out?

    Ubot is mainly for browser automation.
    I only have ubot. It's pretty good. It's alittle pricey though.

    Esspecialy for some tasks you may require plugins. For ex completing googles captcha, you need a plugin.

    Ubot is really easy to learn though. Within a day or 2 I was making bots pretty well.

    But you should just learn to code if you don't know how and just code your own programs.

    Which is better at non-browser automation, and which is better at captcha solving? (Either through built-in functionality, or through plugins)

    Zenno has plugins named CapMonster 2, Proxy Checker and Zennodroid for android app automation. All of them is selling for one time fee.
    Zenno droid is new feature which you can use with mobile networks like Instagram and Pinterest or for App downloading services in bulk;)

    Is it Zenno Droid just limited to certain apps, or can you automate any app?

    Hey there,

    I want to add that there is a 30-Day refund guarantee with UBot Studio if you'd like to try it out. Also, if you're a coder, you can do a lot with UBot Studio - the plugin API lets you build pretty much anything you want to add features in .Net/C# and Python. Message me if you have any more questions.

    I've used both Ubot and Zenno.

    Ubot:
    * Best part: You can create .exe bots that can be run by anyone/ any computer.
    * But Ubot has always thrown me weird errors/ bugs etc. 2 weeks ago I was working on a project, I gave preference to Ubot and thought of trying Ubot first. I bought updates (since I didn't use it for years) - paid for the updates - download the latest version - In the past I've seen Ubot acting really weird even on doing the simplest tasks - and when I checked with folks in their forum - they said its bugs - I was wondering how others are using Ubot with so much of bugs - I do not know - This time what happened is this - I got stuck in the very first step - It opens webpage for me - but them when I click on some buttons etc - NOT ALWAYS it records it - I had to go back and click on it multiple times to record it - but it wasn't able to do it. Sometimes when I try multiple times it was catching things - BUT then, I wanted something which is "good at doing these basic stuffs right" - Clicking a button isn't an advanced stuff and Ubot shouldn't really face issues there.
    So, like I've done in the past - went to Zenno - completed the same stuff in 2 days - Yep, its kind of an advanced project - so it took me 2 days to finish it - but then as always, the finally stuff works flawlessly.

    This is my honest opinion about Ubiot and Zenno.
    There may be people who might be having a different opinion - I agree.

    I tried Ubot way back when and it had tons of bugs even back then

    Anyone else have this experience with UBot?

    Because of how the internet and UBot Studio work, it's always possible to encounter issues. Sometimes it's related to building a script incorrectly and getting an error like you'd get in any IDE (although we minimize this as much as possible), and sometimes it's because websites are always changing, the internet is a hydra, and slaying it takes constant effort. We are always working to make UBot Studio better, and if anyone has any suggestions, please send them my way.

    Did you open a ticket with support explaining the issue you were having? I haven't heard of this problem, honestly, in seven years of running the company. All it takes is one ticket for us to fix an issue :)

    At the moment, our tracker is fairly clean of any issues that are affecting more than a single user, and they are all very minor - but as always, we are working to correct any issues that you might find! Visit http://tracker.ubotstudio.com for more info.


    I am the original Developer and President.

    If you have any additional questions about UBot Studio, please feel free to ask.

    Both are good if you know what you are doing. uBot is a bit difficult to learn compared to the other but you can create .exe files and sell them if you want. Both can satisfy your needs, if used properly.
