Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Facebook Messenger reviews

Problems with connectivity issues when both parties, over video call, have excellent wi-fi connections: During the call one or both individuals will have difficulties hearing the other. As in, someone is talking but not a word is heard. As this is the only app I know of, so far, that is socially integrated with the ability to share screens, it creates a lot of frustration. This only occurred with the last update, please resolve, we've uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

I find the app very useful but there's a huge bug to be fixed. I have an android and the issue is with the bubbles interfering with other apps working properly once the bubble has popped up while using the keyboard in the other apps. A message about the app not being optimized for Android pops up. Then I have to restart my phone because I can no longer navigate my other apps due to freezing up. Please fix this.

New problem: group video chats effects don't go away once you turn them off, and 95% of the effects don't work when chosen. If you've scrolled to an earlier conversation, if your phone goes from portrait to landscape it will put you at the recent message in the convo, losing your place and having to start over. New issue: on Android, switching to landscape mode in video chat does not rotate the user's camera. I'm 90 degrees sideways. Happens every time.

Bonus.ly reviews

Since we've moved to a remote-first work environment, it's turned our monthly recognition meetings into a place where we give each other kudos almost daily. Our company has several different departments, so it's easy to engage with each team and give "props" to folks we wouldn't normally interact with. I personally love all of the different causes Bonusly allows you to donate to, not to mention the incredible rewards that can be claimed!

- Tom G.

It has all the ways to redeem points you could think of. It also makes it very fun and easy to let people know when they have done something great. Couldn't think of a better way to make your colleagues feel appreciated.

I love the integration of bonusly with Slack, that makes it really easy to send points. I also love how you can include gifs in the messages. Those always make me smile, whether I am giving them or receiving them. The options for spending your points are amazing, they have giftcards to places that I actually shop at. This is just a nice added bonus to the work that I do at my job.
