Free survey software comparison chart 2012Posted on September 25th, 2012 9 comments
Last year we have created our first comparison chart of free survey software providers. Because in the meantime, one of the companies that appeared in the side-by-side comparison chart was acquired by another, and some of the features these companies offered for free changed, we are now ready to present the 2012 edition of our free survey software comparison chart.
Zoomerang is the company acquired by SurveyMonkey, so they will not appear in our chart anymore. Also, SurveyMonkey and QuestionPro removed a lot of features from the free account. As a new entry, we are welcoming SurveyExpression. SurveyExpression was launched this year and they already proved to be the survey tool that many users waited for to appear.
This year, we will focus on the same features: number of surveys allowed for free, number of questions per survey, number of responses, question types, skip logic, piping, reporting, data export and others.
So, here is the 2012 free online survey tools chart:
Survey Monkey Survey Expression eSurveysPro Survey Gizmo QuestionPro Number of surveys Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited 1 Number of questions per survey 10 Unlimited Unlimited Unlimited 10 Number of responses 100/survey 200/survey Unlimited 250/month 100/account Number of question types 15 18 14 21 15 Skip logic No Yes Yes No No Piping No No No No No Multiple languages supported No No No No No Brand survey with your own logo No Yes Yes No No Online survey reports Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Download/export responses No Yes No Yes No
And the winner is …
Based on the above features, if you need a free survey software tool, we recommend you to use SurveyExpression.

I registered with survey expression based on this review only to find all the things I need are disappearing in 2 days. They are still advertising that they are best free site as per your survey which seems like false advertising to me. I will not be upgrading to a paid account as I am a student and at this point only need one survey. Disappointed in wasting my time and not easy to deregister.
I’ve tried all of these web-sites and although they all provide some good features, the best one for me is http://www.addpoll.com. Plenty of great features with the free version and more than affordable prices if you decide you need a pro version. Great customer support, too! These guys can customize almost anything for you.
