People’s Feedback about Qwary and QuestionScout
Here are some insightful reviews from our Facebook group members who have used Qwary and QuestionScout. Join us in our discussion here.
Although a little similar, their strengths are different. I own QuestionScout and it’s such a solid product. If you need a form, it’s perfect.
I’ve been testing Qwary and close to buying it before it goes. Surveys is where Qwary really stands out. Most people that do basic surveys in a form format just to retrieve answers or feedback, probably won’t care or won’t notice the difference.
What you get with Qwary for surveys is such powerful at a glance results that you don’t get with QuestionScout. Graphs, sentiment analysis, answer comparison etc are a marketers dream when it comes to survey results. That alone is what’s making me consider Qwary.
For basic needs you can choose 1 or the other, for power users you probably want to grab both, especially if you need powerful surveys. Qwary should be compared to the likes of Survey Monkey to really understand its features, rather than a form builder (as powerful as QuestionScout is).
QuestionScout has the greatest feature I believe every form builder should have but only few do: Partially filled forms.
It means QuestionScout shows you when someone didn’t fill out the whole form and it shows you where they dropped out in the process…
Imagine this: You have a form with 15 questions you use for lead gen but you’re getting zero leads… then you look at the backend and you realise everyone’s dropping out on questions 13. Now you have data to either change the question or make the form shorter.
In my opinion, every form builder should have this but I don’t recall any of the LTD ones having it.
This is a crazy helpful feature for lead gen, long forms, asking for feedback, etc. Other form builders you either get the form filled or not.

Here’s a very quick review.
Qwary = Hands down best UI/UX. Hands down. Great features and options but they’re not marketing/sales related.
QuestionScout = Geared towards marketing but missing a lot of small things that should otherwise be there. The only thing good about it is it has unlimited everything.
