Software Reviews and Critisims

    Good product, calling and screen sharing not reliable

    I still remember back before Screen Hero or whatever it was called was discontinued. I swear it worked better as a separate product. Calling in Slack in my biggest complaint, I wish it was more reliable when it comes to the screensharing portion of things. More often than not the screenshare will freeze requiring the meeting to restart or sometimes requiring the toggle of just the screenshare component. It also uses up an extremely high amount of system resources causing the fans in my PC 16" Core i9 to go crazy. A little optimization would be nice. I am writing this review today though as I continue to be annoyed by these problems that haven't been solved for years. Google Meet and Zoom don't have issues like this. One last thing, your "cool" app update messages in the AppStore change log aren't very cool. Why not actually tell customers what you are fixing instead of trying to be so creative while avoiding the disclosure of information. I feel like transparency is a little warranted in today's climate to help build trust in our industry. I for one would like to know what you are fixing so maybe I can feel better about the platform as a whole in case I have encountered or been affected by problems that may have been fixed.

    Priceless tool

    This is a game changer for my digital marketing agency. We use it every day and a lot of my clients are now using it too. I love all the free features it comes with but it be great if I have more privacy features for my team and clients. Because each user has a profile with contact details, it prevents me from mixing my teams together with other teams and clients. I have to create several Slack accounts for different teams/clients. I don't need my clients contacting everyone directly or vise versa. For paid, because I work with such a large team it would be too expensive to upgrade. But if I could pay a flat fee $20 up $50 a month just for that feature (ideally $25) I would pay to keep my team's contact details private and limit use of DM between each other and clients so I can add clients and team members to one channel and limit what my clients can do and DM. To pay per account is not realistiic, it's way too many people. Please add this feature it would be so great and I would pay a flat fee for it! :) I'm still giving 5 stars because the value deserves it. This would just take it to the next level.

    One of the worse apps I have ever used

    I am currently in college and one of my classes requires us to use this program. I could not, and still, havent been able to even join my class group. There are sections where if you "hit a wall" there is no going back and you cant go to the next screen. You are stuck and it is the most infuriating thing ever. It gives the options to skip certain steps but then it gives you errors if you try to skip the steps. I cant for the life if me figure out how to navigate the program and I dont understand how anyone would want to use this program. I cant even say anything about the resst of the app because I CANT GET PAST THE FIRST 4 SCREENS. I AM TRAPPED IN A LOOP OF SCREENS THAT I CANT GET OUT OF. If I try restarting the app it sends me right back to my last screen. it wont even give me the option of switching emails on the app. I tried changing it through the desktop but it wouldnt work. Nothing would work. This is the worst networking app I have ever seen. The developers need to focuse less one the aesthetic and more on making the app user friendly becuase how it is now I would rather use the myspace of 2011 than open this hellhole of an app again.

    I have a life outside of slack

    The developers responded to this comment and removed the annoying behavior in an update. Thanks! When I reboot, I have several apps last-session windows start up; many if not most people do. Slack repeatedly bring focus to itself. Why, oh why?!? If I want to start work on anything while a dozen safari tabs load, I can't, because of this "feature". For example, it demands attention while I'm typing in a password in another app. Why do you assume the first thing I want to do is slack, every single time?!? At least add a preference "have slack be polite on start-up". I've tried to start it "hidden", but the slack app still has the same needy behavior.

    Good but could be great :)

    Like this chat app a lot. Saves me a lot of time with its built-in features as well as the available integrations. Also a big fan of the styling, makes work chat less boring! However, noticed with recent update that the "Slack Helper" processes are chugging CPU time, so much so that the fans on my top-spec PC run on medium to high. Didn’t have this issue before so I’m sure this is an optimization they just need to make. One thing I would LOVE to see is the ability to “sleep” a group, so that it didn’t have to be always running in the background. For someone like me, who uses Slack for 9 different groups, having each of those chats actively run leads to each spinning up a Slack Helper process that consumes a fair amount of CPU. Would love to be able to “sleep” less important chats e.g. disable background updates for those groups until I explicitly “un-sleep” it. This would primarily be used for chats of lower priority than others.
