Web App Meister is a project by the same team behind Inspired Magazine. Our purpose is to help you find the best web apps for your business needs. Currently, we’re providing in-depth information about e-commerce software. We compare apps head-to-head on criteria such as pricing, design, marketing etc. Out of the mass of comparisons we make a ranking. You can re-order this ranking according to your specific needs by weighting the criteria.
How does it work?
We’re only tackling niches and products that we’ve been actually using for at least a few months (some for years) before reviewing and comparing them. We try to identify the common pain points of the average user and come up with the criteria we should use when comparing the apps.
All the hidden costs and small print are taken into account for each app and disclosed in comparisons. Each head-to-head comparison is individually created so we have totally different arguments when comparing Shopify vs Magento and Shopify vs Bigcommerce. We also revisit each app every month to see if there have been any changes and improvements, then adjust the rankings and comparisons accordingly.

The first edition of this website was created in 2013 by a german company called compendii. The founders of compendii UG (haftungsbeschränkt) were funded by the German Federal Government Department for Economy with a so called EXIST Gründerstipendium and supported by the University of Freiburg and Campus Technologies Oberrhein (CTO). The project has been abandoned in 2014 by the founders, and we decided to save the URL and idea from extinction. Since then we’ve updated all comparisons and reviews so the information reflects the current features of all apps as of October 2015.
