Talkbot at first glance seems like yet another boring bot creator. Unfortunately, it also seems like that on subsequent glances.

It is, however, unarguably easy to use. I made a bot and had a conversation with it in under five minutes:

It is also still in beta, so it’s a bit unfair of me to be mean about it. Nevertheless, I can’t help wishing that its creators had been a bit more creative.

The usual stuff

It has the usual features:

I just find it hard to get excited about this stuff any more. It’s like someones said, “All the other chatbot creators are doing this. I can do exactly the same, and therefore I should.” I’m afraid this logic doesn’t appeal to me.


Interestingly, it also has the ability to communicate with your own servers via an API. You can trigger a request to your server, and accept POST requests from your server to communicate back with users.


There’s probably more, but I have to say, by this point, I’m not terribly enthused. If you want a chatbot builder with this set of features, you’re probably better off with something that’s not in beta. Chatfuel would be an obvious choice, but if that’s not your cup of tea, there are plenty more to choose from.
