TubeBuddy, duh!


1. Functionality 

TubeBuddy offers more than twice as many features as VidIQ. Find a complete list of tools on our tools page here:

2. Originality

Although VidIQ does have some good unique features, most of what they have is a direct copy of something that we released 3 months prior (at least they changed the wording in *some cases). See screenshot at bottom for just a few of the MANY examples.

3. Speed

VidIQ has several features that slow down your browsing experience. Things such as likes/dislikes on every video. That means for each page you look at, they are making 20+ calls to YouTube in the background causing your whole system to slow down. TubeBuddy always keeps system performance and user frustration in mind which is why we develop tools with YOU in mind and provide ways to turn off features that might impact YouTube loading time. 

4. Support

TubeBuddy offers 7 days per week, fast support even for free users. Better yet, support comes directly from the developers of the app itself.

5. Price

Not only is TubeBuddy cheaper in most cases, you are getting way more bang for your buck. And we offer discounts for smaller channels (get 50% off for a Pro license with coupon code RisingStarBuddy if you have less than 1,000 subscribers)

6. Mobile

TubeBuddy offers a mobile product which is not offered by VidIQ.

But don't take it from us. What do YouTube creators have to say?
