  • Record and evaluate every visitor’s journey through your site
  • Analyse User Experience on a macro level by heat mapping clicks, movements, hovers, scrolls and attention
  • No liquid installation: get up and running in minutes

You know that your site’s getting visits, but what do these visits really mean for your business? What causes users to make it through the purchase process and what causes them to drop off?

Hindsight allows you to see exactly how your users interact with every element of your site, both individually, through visitor recordings, and on a macro level with heat mapping.

Hindsight helps you to refine your structure and design, weed out sticking points, implement the most effective cross-sells, put your most important products in the line of site and, most importantly, maximise your conversions.

★ Heat mapping ★

Explore a set of heat maps of every page in your store to gain a range of useful insights into your users’ journeys

  • Toggle between mapping clicks, mouse movements, scrolls and an aggregate of the three. Understand both what your users get to see and the elements to which they are most drawn

  • Analyse every single click: see click totals/rates, hover totals/rates, hover->click rate; hover time and more

  • Map any date range

  • View key statistics including: average visit time for the page, average active engagement time, average scroll distance and total number of clicks across the recordings

  • Customise the look of your heat map with opacity and intensity controls

★ Visitor Recording ★

Incredible app. Very straightforward and easy to use, yet powerful insights that make a huge difference. This gives the data needed to know what changes to make to increase conversion.

We've used it to determine what people were most interested in and have found that some of the things we gave prime real estate on the website and home page were not as important to conversion than other pieces which we'd left mostly out of the picture.

Not to mention it's incredibly insightful to watch someone going through the website. It gives you a new perspective and you come away with notes on what could be improved.


No trial.

Had the app for less than 24 hours and was already charged a full month before there was even one recording.


Great Idea. We sell a custom print, non returnable product. We have customers who SWEAR they didn't agree to our term and conditions, Hindsight allows us to present to them their visit. We uninstalled the app. then realized how much we relied on it and just reupped.


It let's you block your own IP :)


a very interesting app, it showed me what changes i needed to make, genius :)


Incredibly useful for seeing how visitors use our site, what information is confusing. This is critical for improving conversions and ensuring our visitors have the best experience possible on our site.


A lot better than Lucky Orange. Recordings work and heatmaps give great insight. minor issues, would recommend


Just installed it.
And I'm amazed.
It give so much information about problems on navigating the site,
And the users actions to your site structure,
the only downfall Is the pricing, price too high for a tiny shop just starting its way with 0 sales :<


I have just started using the app. So far so good. Will come back with a detailed review later


love this product! try it you will love it too!
