CleverTap vs Firebase: What are the differences?
Developers describe CleverTap as "Blazing fast analytics, powerful real-time segmentation, multi-channel messaging, A/B testing and personalization". We help over 3500 brands, including Jio, Cleartrip, BookMyShow, Curiosity, McDonalds, Sony, DC Comics, and Denver Broncos understand app behavior, and make their marketing data-driven. On the other hand, Firebase is detailed as "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.
CleverTap and Firebase are primarily classified as "Mobile Analytics" and "Realtime Backend / API" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by CleverTap are:
- Retention Cohorts
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.
"Great real time analytics and engagement tool" is the top reason why over 3 developers like CleverTap, while over 318 developers mention "Realtime backend made easy" as the leading cause for choosing Firebase.
