Pros: I use this for user testing and I would have to say my favorite part is the ability for multiple people to take notes real-time and the notes are time-stamped to the video.

Pros:

- Notes in Real-Time Time-Stamped to the Video

-Project Folders For easy organizing

- Ability for people to watch but not be seen

- Ability to create highlight snippets (Very Easy to Do)

- Ability to download notes & videos

- Ability to share videos with Link

- Ability to view camera and screen share at the same time

Cons: Again, I am using this for user testing and users have to have the google chrome plugin installed for us to be able to use lookback. Some of our users do not use google chrome and it feels weird to ask them to install something on their machine. Our workaround is to use zoom and Lookback at the same time. The only downside is the person recording cannot take notes in Lookback at the same time.

Cons:

- Must have google chrome plugin

- Cannot Upload videos

Overall: - Having notes and videos together in one place!

- The ability to quickly find a video snippet to share based on the timestamped notes.

Pros: Awesome tool for user tests with facilitating additional features like live stream, chat and video editing.

Cons: You must download an extra app to conduct tests on smartphones, AND a web extension on each browser you want to use.

A great recording application, but not a reporting tool

Pros: It was very easy to set up a session, and the UI for the "participate" app that's needed for remote sessions is very easy (which is critical for getting participants to actually participate!). The video playback is fine and I like being able to see the screen and participants' faces in the same shot. The note-taking interface was easy to use, too.

Cons: I would have liked an additional layer of reporting based on the notes from user sessions - something like Optimal Workshop or Loop11 provides, where they can generate insights based on tags and words used in comments.

Also, I had some trouble editing comments (one out of 10 times, it would reload the entire video) and the timestamps in the exported video notes weren't ideal for importing into Optimal Workshop/Reframer to generate additional reports.

Really helps conduct collaborative research

Pros: I LOVE that observers can enter and exit the virtual observer room as needed, it saves a lot of pinging and distractions for the research participant.

Cons: Improvements that could be made including having an "in person but 2 computers" mode, allowing you to start a "live" session from another computer but not need to turn on the microphone or audio, as you're purely using it to check in with observers if there are questions while running an in person test.

Overall: Love this product and the direction it is going in for user experience researchers conducting usability tests on mobile devices and computers.

Comparable and cheaper than User testing.com

Pros: This application is great for doing remote user tests. It allows you to perform self and moderated tests remotely which saves tons of money.

Cons: It doesn't have as many features as usertesting.com but the cost difference makes up for it.

Pros: I theory the remote testing functionality is helpful, but I haven't been able to test this as IT departments won't install the extension.

Cons: Frequently fails to record audio and sometimes video and audio. It is no reliable or very robust. The helpdesk has never resolved any of my technical issues and can take weeks to get back to you. They do not seem to care much about the issues their customers are facing.

Overall: Support is slow and unhelpful. Seriously TEST this product before deciding to pay for a year's subscription!

I don't have patience anymore to clarify how to use Lookback :(

Pros: It is very useful to research how users use different applications. I liked is very much that I had a possibility to saw their face too. It was very easy and simple to use.

Cons: Some years ago everything was quite simple and clear with Lookback,

but the system was changed appr. 1-2 years ago and after this I couldn't clarify how can I record a full UX test and how and where can I find records. Moreover, how much does it cost.

Overall: I loved it very much, i also used as a reference in my scientific publications about UX testing. Now I feel that I don't have patience anymore to clarify how to use Lookback :(
