This article compares Productific to Suggested.co as a roadmap voting tool for app developers and indie makers (Suggested.co was formerly known as Makerkit.co).
Pricing: Productific is cheaper and provides better value
Suggested.co is priced at 45$ per month. Productific provides a free tier which comfortably hosts mobile apps and small products. The start-up plan at 7€ per month has everything you need when running a small product or mobile app, including customized design.
Free trial days: less time pressure
Suggested.co comes with a free trial period of only 15 days. Productific's free trial of 30 days enables you to comfortably get to know the product and provides time to start collecting user feedback. Suggested.co's 15 days creates time pressure, you need to rush into publishing the feedback URL to your users.
Roadmap, Changelog, and How-to
Productific provides views for idea voting, roadmap, changelog and how-to documents. Each listing uses a design adjusted to the purpose of the listing. For example, documents do not carry a voting button. Suggested.co uses a Jira-style item backlog where all items look similar and carry a status field to distinguish their lifecycle.
Productific hosts rich text idea, document and product listings. You can work with headlines, lists, colors and embedded images to present your product and ideas in a beautiful way. How-to documents are unique to Productific and cannot be hosted on Suggested.co - we found that users looking for how-to descriptions are much more likely to provide valuable voting feedback. Productific is optimized for search engine discoverability.
Suggested.co is a SaaS tool for collecting customer feedback. It's popular on Product Hunt and provides solid service to many product listings. Nevertheless, we believe Productific is the better deal for most indie makers and app developers.
