Appsee vs Firebase: What are the differences?

Appsee: Mobile App Analytics: Touch heatmaps, user analytics, session replay, retention analytics and more. Appsee is the leader in qualitative mobile app analytics, utilizing user session recordings and touch heatmaps to uncover UI & UX issues, and achieve ambitious app KPIs; Firebase: The Realtime App Platform. Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.

Appsee can be classified as a tool in the "Heatmap Analytics" category, while Firebase is grouped under "Realtime Backend / API".

Some of the features offered by Appsee are:

  • User Recordings
  • Touch Heatmaps
  • Realtime In-App Analytics

On the other hand, Firebase provides the following key features:

  • Add the Firebase library to your app and get access to a shared data structure. Any changes made to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
  • Firebase apps can be written entirely with client-side code, update in real-time out-of-the-box, interoperate well with existing services, scale automatically, and provide strong data security.
  • Data Accessibility- Data is stored as JSON in Firebase. Every piece of data has its own URL which can be used in Firebase's client libraries and as a REST endpoint. These URLs can also be entered into a browser to view the data and watch it update in real-time.

According to the StackShare community, Firebase has a broader approval, being mentioned in 859 company stacks & 997 developers stacks; compared to Appsee, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

    Review ofAppseeAppsee

    We've been using Appsee for a couple of years now - we find them the best for detecting mobile app ux issues and small bugs we might not have otherwise known about. They give automatic insights for problematic screens and link most of their standard analytics like conversion funnels with additional session replay functionality.

    The ANR and the'killed by user' filters have proved very useful for us and the touch heatmaps are great. You get a nice breakdown of all gestures made on a particular screen (taps, swipes etc) and Appsee also automatically identifies when an action has been unresponsive.

    Review ofFirebaseFirebase

    Firebase is great, cheap and very flexible. Their docs are very helpful and so is the customer support, but the one thing that is so awesome about firebase is that everything is done in realtime!

    Review ofFirebaseFirebase

    We were looking for a solution to find out about all the errors our customers experienced but never informed us about.

    We use it for a few things. We use it internally for a few dashboards because it’s actually really nice to have real-time dashboard data with Firebase. We also use it extensively for live order updating. For example, when a shopper is picking your items, you'll be able to go on your order screen. There will be live showing like found or not found or whatever. You'll have live position updating of your shopper on the map. You will have live information of the status of the order like “Nicole is now picking up your order,” and all these kind of things, so you don’t have to reload the page or pull or anything. Just live updates happen natively through Firebase API, which is nice.

    Used for storing results of users (malaria predictions) and displaying to user in the app. Although the realtime aspect wasn't huge in this project, it was much quicker to push data elements for each user as firebase elements since they were purely numerical and very small. And again, the idea of familiarity - I've worked with Firebase at previous hackathons, so no need to spend time going through docs, just straight to the coding.

    Firebase let's us iterate quickly. We've used the Realtime Database to build rich UX features– like push notifications– fast. Likewise, Firebase Authentication and Cloud Functions save us from having to rebuild redundant server infrastructure. Even though Firebase can get pricey, we've saved money in developer time.

    Still in development, but we will soon (January 2016) be releasing a version that uses Firebase to keep the front end up to date in real time. Certain data are synchronised across RDS and Firebase to optimize the user experience.
