Chameleon alternative

Hopscotch is the simple and affordable Chameleon alternative built to onboard SaaS users with ease.


Chameleon is one of the leading user onboarding tools for SaaS companies. It has very extensive features and functionality, however these features come with added complexity and a high price tag.

If your SaaS company has simple onboarding needs, such as product tours and welcome messages, or simply cannot justify the $279/month starting price, then you may want to consider an affordable Chameleon alternative like Hopscotch Product Tours.

Really a lot of it comes down to this question: if you're a mid-market or enterprise company with significant budget, you may be better served by an onboarding tool like Chameleon. If you're a small business or growing startup and want a quality tool at a more affordable price, Hopscotch will likely be a better alternative to Chameleon.

Features comparison

Chameleon is an onboarding tool with many features and a lot of customization options. The challenge that comes with this advanced customization is the tool is no longer as simple to use.

Chameleon's features include checklists, surveys, and product tours. Each option has a lot of options for configurability and customization.

At Hopscotch Product Tours, we have taken a "less is more" approach. We focus on keeping things simple, and providing just enough customization.

So what's the takeaway here? If you need really advanced configuration for your onboarding, or if you need surveys and checklists, Chameleon is the choice for you. If you are looking to keep things simple, or simply cannot afford it, Hopscotch Product Tours is a great Chameleon alternative to consider.
