Twilio Applications, as we all know, is one of the major telephony services providers API, that helps Twilio developers connect the two ends of Information technology and telecommunication services, to get better marketing and developing results. Twilio however does not cost much for a user as compared to its unlimited benefits. But still we will take look at if there are any Twilio alternatives and can they provide the same level of satisfaction to the users as Twilio does. Twilio under its vast umbrella provides a number of services to its users and clients that are not easy to acquire by a single corporation unless you posses a huge experience and a team that is as corporative as Twilio’s team, at every step of its growth. However there are many other Twilio Alternatives that can easily be handled through Twilio developers as well, but they do not comprise of all the features that a user can attain through Twilio only, but these Twilio Alternatives basically cover up all the features of Twilio API and Twilio Android App, one by one, individually. Let’s take a look at some of these Twilio alternatives.
Nexmo is said to be the most substitutable Twilio alternative and it is designed to be easily adapted by Twilio developers as well. However some of the features that one can have with Twilio are not really possible with Nexmo, most of the services are easily substitutable but some features such as Twilio APIs workability, speed and security are unmatchable to Nexmo.
SMS Sheep is a fully Facebook integrated SMS facility by Nexmo, that was basically designed to be the Twilio’s SMS services alternative however it did not really click as Twilios SMS services. But still it can be a good Twilio alternative covering SMS related issues.
Cdyne is another Twilio alternativewith a good feature of Post payment that allows the user to use the services and then pay for them. In this sense you only have to pay for the successful messages that are sent and do not have to pay for the messages that are failed to be sent through.
Hoiio is now also taking its marketing seriously to emerge as a good Twilio alternative, however it has just been able to cover up the SMS and Voice features up till now.
Plivo has given an open marketing challenge to Twilio and has been the strongest twilio alternative for now however it just has an edge only in some features that are used by twilio developers. It has still not been able to prove itself as a complete Twilio alternative.
These are some of the twilio alternatives that twilio developers can adapt and use according to their needs. These Twilios alternatives are trying to beat Twilio on the grounds of rates and services. However still there has not been some serious competition to Twilio in the market from any of the mentioned Twilio replacements.
