The AI space is the fastest moving sector tech has seen since the birth of the Internet.
Everyday, hundreds of new tools appear, often claiming to do the same thing - except better/faster/cheaper than their competitors.
Sifting through these tools to find the hidden gems isn’t easy, but at AllThingsAI we’ve got a solid, battle-tested process we follow.
Here’s what our tool testing and review process looks like:
- We scour the Internet and our own submissions portal every day, looking for the best tools and paying attention to which tools are gaining traction
- We verify the tool is legit and ask the key questions - Are the founders findable, do legit reviews and testimonials exist, have real people gotten real value from the tool?
- We signup to the tool with our own details and, if necessary, our own card and payment details.
- We run through the tool and make sure it delivers the main value it promises. We verify the pricing is as-reported on the homepage and we look for any secondary or hidden features that you, our reader, might find interesting.
- We look at what other people have said about the tool we’re reviewing - is there something we're missing?
- We take a second deep-dive into the tool and find the lesser-known tips and tricks to give our readers an advantage. This forms our “Insider Tips” section
- We try out similar tools, including a given tool’s closest competitors and figure out what they do - and don't do - better. We strive to make balanced recommendations - Every tool has its pros and cons
- We make sure the pricing is fair vs the market - If a tool is ludicrously overpriced, we’ll make sure you know about a cheaper alternative.
- And we’ll figure out if and when our readers should pay - Free credits for AI tools can get you very far
- We write our reviews with a focus on Authenticity (does the tool do it what it says?), Competency (Does it do its main job well?), Affordability (Is the pricing reasonable, for the value given?) and Simplicity (Is it so easy your grandmother could use it?)
