    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.

    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.

    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.)

    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

    Its very user friendly, as the person can access the messages over mobile phone. Hence, we can reach out to the team 24*7. The survey/poll option helps in deciding the things with people's consent.

    Pros

    It can be used over mobile phone as well as desktop
    The survey/ poll options
    Better availability of icons & emojis

    Cons

    At times the messages do not pop-up
    Takes longer duration to start the application
    It should have a mandatory field to specify the team which the member is representing

    Flock is great for intra-office communication. It has a lot of bots and features, and they keep improving it every now and then. The poll and scheduled reminders have been quite useful in my team.

    Pros

    Oh many things. In particular, the features of changing display density, notes/files, do not disturb, and the reminder bot.

    Cons

    Replies to a specific message show up *above* the message instead of below, which works for emails but is a bit disorienting in a messenger, and the fact that I don't have the option to not show preview of a website link that I might have added in my message.

    Flock is a competitive and great alternative to slack

    Pros

    Flock is a similar app to slack and is useful for team communication and collaboration. Although Flock's look is different from slack's it is however in my opinion a good substitute for Slack. Flock's competitive pricing also makes it endearing and worth a try. Flock supports file and media uploads and the possibility of creating different channels for varying conversations among team players.

    Cons

    So far, I haven't observed any flaw that is worthy of note. However, i'd recommend that upon first installation, there should be a popup to either turn notifications on or off as it could be overwhelming when there is a lot of conversation trail
