next level chat tool

we use to have internal team chats + extra alerting from 3rd party services.

Pros

I like the way how Flowdock connects the team chats with external alerts that can be setup easily in the app.

Cons

it doesn't look as friendly as in slack, but again - way better than teams ;-) also the mobile app is slow sometimes.

Good IM but needs a little more to compete with other IM alternatives

Very good IM option, user friendly, promotes communication, just needs to include more functionality out of the box.

Pros

The threading system in flowdock is very intuitive, the thread replies are not hidden within the general chat, but instead they are color coded, so you can quickly identify what/who you are replying to, and at the same time, your reply is visible to everyone in the chat, not only to the people in the thread, which promotes communication between every contact in the chat. There is also an option to add hashtags to the messages, that is very useful when you have to search for specific things in the chat history.

Cons

A lot of functionality in flowdock comes in the form of an integration, you have to add plugins in order to do other things, like screen sharing, that could be already in the tool, like its competitors do.

It worked, but wasn't competitive

It was the convergence of tools and conversation, so effectively it did help. I always felt like developers could get more out of Flowdock than roles like mine, in Sales. I just used it for chatting with colleagues.

Pros

It did offer instant communication and it's best feature (compared to competitors) was it's notifications - which isn't really saying much

Cons

The app was very unstable on my Mac. I always had to use the browser version b/c the app crashed and was unreliable. The iOS app was probably worse than the Mac desktop app. That was a bummer - the app is vital.

Nice way to collaborate

Overall pretty good at what it does. Allows conversations to happen where the whole team can see and interact with them.

Pros

It is pretty nice in terms of threading conversations and keeping multiple conversations separate so people can read an entire conversation together.

Cons

When someone screws up and doesn’t people thread they are the only one who can fix it, but only if they do it right away.

Good solid product

Pros

There is a lot to like - it is easy to streamline and organize team communication.

Cons

I personally have had quite a few issues getting logged in via my iPhone every single time there is an update. That part is a pain in the backside. Not sure why the mobile set up is not as easy as the desktop - browser or app.
