The best Slack alternative, and I prefer it over Slack

Exceptional. While I'm not a huge believer in the importance of these chat products vs. those of the past, of the ones in the market today, Flock is my preferred chat tool. I've used Slack, Flock, Glip, and others. This one is easy to use, adds more features than Slack, and is far more stable and quality than Glip.

Pros

I never understood the hype around Slack. Marketed as an "e-mail killer," we all know that's true. There are still so many things it cannot do that email can do. Not to mention, it's just another internal chat tool. In fact, the only core differences between Slack and your typical enterprise grade chat client are silly emojis and power user abilities that 99% of your employees don't know how to use, and won't use. Flock, while generally speaking works the same way, at least adds some productivity concepts in the app. For example, in different channels and private chats, I can have working to-do lists with assignments and due dates. I can pin documents and files in a conversation or channel that are relevant to the conversation. Also, for some reason, things just feel cleaner in Flock. My entire team was confused why we switched at first, but those types of features were my reasons. And now they love it, no going back.

Cons

Not as many integrations as Slack. But not a deal breaker. Almost all the tools we use integrate.

A strong competitor for the likes of Slack

Flock has successfully replaced the likes of Slack and Skype at my organisation. There are still a few bugs here, a few features there that need to be sorted out, but it's stable enough for daily use.

Pros

I love the integrations and apps it offers, and the price at which it does that.

Cons

Flock tries to be a tad too annoying with its notifications.

Very Good

I'd really suggest this app to companies. I'd even would suggest it for privat use if you could strip it down a bit in example for student usage or something like that

Pros

pretty easy to use
some nice features like to-dos and filesharing
the app for android is quite nice

Cons

Open chats seem a little bit unorganized though i wouldn't know how to improve it
Videochat opens a browser instead of using flock itself wich can cause some problems

Good Team messaging App......

Very good application for messaging to all my team members!!!

Pros

If you are looking for team messaging applications targeted towards groups of people working in a similar project, Flock gives you a good choice, not-so-costly option and flexibility for messaging. It has a free plan that gives 10 GB free space for your entire team and also a PRO plan that boasts of enhanced administrator controls with 10 GB storage per licensed user. Flock also has the ability to integrate with various apps and services. You just have to create a login and Voila!! be ready to use the infinite power of messaging......

Cons

There are other powerful options in messaging like Slack, HipChat and Twist and the pricing varies. So, you might want to review what you exactly want based on users who are going to use this application before you actually purchase this software.

An Excellent Team Communications and Utility Tool

Flock has quickly become a single hub for a lot of my daily work.

Pros

Prior to using Flock, our team was on slack which handled communications well. But what Flock brought to the table was more. In addition to the features that Slack has, Flock also has a calendar app, note taking app (which works with individuals, channels and myself, a feature which I really like), tasks app, drive app which I felt adds a lot of value to the product, and makes it a central hub for a lot of my daily activities. They have also recently added a feature that enables you to have repeated processes setup, bringing in automation into the platform. I think they're doing really well in the space that are in and hope they continue to keep innovating while keeping their users in mind.

Cons

They don't have enough integrations (like Invision). They also don't seem to have an easy way to export all data (Slack has this).
A dark theme for Flock would be great.

Review on Flock functioning and functionality

It solved a lot issues related to internal office communication and the speed of software makes its a way better product in comparison to other products in same category. It also has Emojis, so, yeah, this is another awesome feature.

Pros

The most useful and important feature of Flock is its speed and ease of usage. The features such as group creation, setting reminders, profile info are very helpful and strategically places to offer the best working of this communicator software.

Cons

The very frequent and mandatory updates sometimes create lag in the software.

One of the simple and easy collaboration tool for my team.

I love the Idea of on-screen tutorials which is annoying first but collapsible later. Participance can now show their screen so no more blind guesses and solves problems quicker then ever.No more email for the customer. Now customer confusions participant directly to participants development process and share their thoughts when I progrrame their software. collaboration makes my work breez.

Pros

You can simply do all your team management in one place. here are some of the things I like the most of this service.
Share screen with participents, on a video call. Share docs(also supports google docs) , ask for a pool , add code snippets . this make my life simper.No more long and time consuming email conversions. You just do all live chat and no more confutions. You can add many popular software to your flock account. I think it is an simple colaboration tool which makes my freelance life easyer.
I love myspace for quick private note taking facility, which helps me Evaluate/Modify my work for later.

Cons

When I set it up for the first time it took 2 onscreen demos how to use it, I was annoying at first but with time this onscreen tutorial helps me find options else hiden.I would love to see a collapciable left bar(Cant find till now.)

Great Replacement for Slack

Slack was limiting our ability to upload images, and had no way to delete very old images, so we had to make a move. Flock has been a great choice.

Pros

Set up was easy. Support staff was very responsive on a few questions I had. They have more functionality than Slack. And they have better pricing for the premium version.

Cons

Could you a few formatting fixes to make it easier to see unread messages. Everything else is great though.

Just Telegram or Whatsapp with some integrations!

Flock is really good, I recommend it to small IT or ITes company as most of the apps made available for keeping developers and programmers in mind. Whereas for rest it's better to use Telegram with IFTTT and Zapier or Try Workplace by Fb and MS Teams then switching from Slack to Flock. But those who're already using Slack, Flock is like Bullock cart Vs Bently (Slack) and sooner or later either you'll upgrade to Slack or Workplace by Facebook or Teams by MicroSoft.

Pros

- Easy to use
- Affordable then Slack but not anymore after entry of Workplace by Fb and MS Teams (as they're almost free)
- Best in class Support and they're always there to assist you

Cons

- A complete dearth of apps and integrations, NOT EVEN the 100 essential apps (by Slack) and must have Integrations are available on Flock, literally you'll regret and repent if you're switching from Slack. As just 54 App integrations are available that too without full functionality.
- You can search a file but couldn't click or access it.
- A Big NO for Media or Marketing Company as it may take years for you to find the image your teammate posted just 3 months back.
- Slowest, let me repeat slowest app development I've ever seen in my life so far. No need to feature requests or app integration suggestions
