Setmore has been in the market since 2012 – (apparently the golden age of scheduling app beginnings),  targeting the health, beauty and wellness scheduling sector. Setmore is famous for their free tier, which is extremely limited in practice. Having said that, their paid tier is comparitively inexpensive (of course not as good as Cogsworth). One nice feature of note is their time slot blocker. However, Setmore has not changed much in a very long time and it has competitively fallen down somewhat.

Above we detail a comparison table of Setmore with Cogsworth features based on a November 2018 review kindly facilitated by our users.
This is why sites like Capterra, Getapp, Finances Online are driving so many people to seek and find alternatives to Setmore.
