Create Step-by-Step Guides in Seconds


‎Establishing processes takes time—whether it's cutting down the onboarding time for a new hire or a marketing approval workflow that gets campaigns to market quickly.

But once you've established a process, the last thing you want is to repeat it every time a new member joins the team or, worse, do it yourself again and again.

The solution: process documentation.

Several tools like Scribe and Dubble can document and create visually appealing and accurate step-by-step guides while saving time and preventing efficiency loss.

While both Scribe and Dubble are web browser extensions that help you make documentation easier, they have notable differences. Let's delve into the features, capabilities, and advantages of each to give you a detailed comparison.

Now let’s take a look at their differences, including the pricing models for each tool.

Scribe vs. Dubble: Key Differences

Scribe Pros and Cons

Launched in 2019, Scribe regularly updates its list of features. It can now support workflow captures on desktop apps, too, one of its standout features that makes it ideal for documentation.

Scribe Pros:

  • User-friendly interface makes it easy to create and share Scribes.
  • Simple yet professional functionality for business documentation.
  • Captures step-by-step processes with high accuracy.
  • Saves hours when recording training resources.
  • One-click share with teammates and customers.

Scribe Cons:

  • Some advanced editing steps can be clunky initially.
  • Audio is not captured in Scribes; they are limited to images and videos. 
  • High-level features are only available with the paid premium version.

Dubble Pros and Cons

As a software documentation tool, Dubble is relatively new in the market and launched just last year. The company has launched some new features you can use to create documents, including the option to add audio voiceovers to screencasts when developing resources for the team.

Dubble Pros:

  • Supports creating how-to’s, guides, and tutorials with ease.
  • The free version includes all essential features to record, edit, and share resources.
  • Translates actions like clicks into written steps with AI.

Dubble Cons:

  • Features like audio voiceovers are only available with the paid premium version.
  • Not compatible with some devices like desktop apps.
  • Limited editing functionalities with the free web extension.
  • Integration can be challenging for new users.


Scribe’s Pricing:

  • Scribe Basic (Free): Scribe’s free plan includes key features and a one-click sign-up option without any paywalls. The plan grows when your team grows.
  • Scribe Pro ($23/user/month): With the ‘Pro’ plan, you can choose how many teammates require access to more complex features like custom branding, editing, and exporting capabilities. You can also save an additional 20% discount with yearly billing on Scribe.
  • Scribe Enterprise (customized quote): The ‘Enterprise’ plan includes advanced management of all your Scribes and is custom-designed for your team based on your priorities, plans, and goals.

Dubble’s pricing:

  • Dubble Free (Free): Both Dubble and Scribe have similar features in their free plans, including easy customization, and shareable links and embeds anywhere.
  • Dubble Pro ($12/user/month - currently discounted to $6): Like Scribe, this plan allows you to add new screenshots from your screencasts, add custom branding, and invite collaborators.

Scribe stands out here because of the easy integration with any web, desktop and mobile app. Scaling your documentation process along with your team is also slightly easier with Scribe, as Dubble does not yet have an ‘Enterprise’ plan.

A Scribe user notes, “The fact that I can embed the steps into a workramp or guru card or even just send them over to someone to review makes my life 1000x easier.”

Since Scribe and Dubble come equipped with their own pros and cons, what you choose might just come down to your specific use case.

Based on your individual and company goals, the choice can depend on what features are non-negotiable for you.
