The final entry in our 10 part series comparing 360 product viewers. We dedicated 10 full featured posts diving deep into each option. Below we will lay out the stack ranking of other options on the market:


 

 

Why would we create a self-serving series like this?

 

I sometimes have customers, friends, and investors that look at hoot and ask us "So what is the difference between what your 360 viewer and others I have seen?". As you can see from the massive table below, the answer is complex. Hoot's viewer "feels" better, but what exactly is the difference?

The goal of this series was to have 100% transparency. I wanted to provide people with alternatives to hoot's 360 viewer and break down each aspect of the available options. We may have ranked our viewer as what we thought was the best one, but we also provided you with other viable alternatives and hopefully a few key points to ponder when considering your options.
