A High-Level Comparison

Airship is a good fit for highly-resourced teams with large budgets and with dedicated engineering resources for a long setup and ongoing management.

However, most companies need their messaging to do more or are strapped for dev resources. That’s how we’re different. OneSignal aims to streamline your messaging workflow across teams and departments. We combine powerful no-code tools (from segmentation to automation and testing), a fast and unlimited API, and top-notch support. And those are just a few of the reasons OneSignal is a G2 Leader for best usability, easiest setup, and enterprise.

For over 2M apps, OneSignal is a better choice.

More Free Plan to Love

Our Free Plan is more extensive than our competitors because we believe that our success is contingent on yours. We want to give you the tools and resources you need to grow, as well as the context to make an informed decision. In our experience, fewer restrictions make for smarter long-term decisions.

Flexible Options for Every Business

Whether you’re a scrappy startup or a successful corporation, deciding how and where to allocate your resources isn’t easy. Although Airship offers an array of enterprise-grade features, their high price tag can serve as a barrier to entry for small and medium-sized businesses that need a scalable growth solution now. Compared to Airship, we offer a greater variety of plans with more accessible features, so you can get exactly what you need at every step of your journey.

Quick Setup and Results

The most successful companies are able to adapt and grow at lightning speed. Our self-guided setup process and extensive documentation library is designed to help you put your ideas into action with greater agility.

Transparency in Action

We believe that transparency and communication are the foundation for strong customer relationships. Unlike Airship, we’ve chosen to make our pricing model and plan details public so that you won’t encounter any surprises down the road. In an effort to respect your time and trust, we also offer self-serve purchasing options, so it’s easy to get started or upgrade your account without jumping through hoops. At the end of the day, we want to deliver on our promises in a way that respects your preferences and your budget.

OneSignal had all the features we needed out of the box, could deliver messages across both web and mobile, and presented a leaner workflow. It was a no brainer.
