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

Flowdock reviews

Works ok, but the UX is not as good as the competition. And, I bet CA devs don't use it themselves. If they did, more multi year old bugs would get fixed. Like new, ghost notifications for messages you read last week on the desktop client. Or multiple notifications for the same message. Or how about the one where you try to post and it says it can't, then you restart the app to find that it really did post, several times - that one's my favorite.

We use this app in a daily basis to work. Easy to use. Most of the time is reliable.

We have been using this app on Android and love the experience and how seamlessly it works. Performance on this app from Search to everything is great. There are few areas of improvement like notifications and an improved search for 1-1s, but overall I highly recommend this to anyone using Flowdock on web.

Google Chat reviews

This replacement for Hangout and Allo is sub par at best. I can't manually delete messages like I can with any other app. I also have to manually open each image one at a time to both send and view instead of selecting multiple to upload or swiping between images that were sent. This feels like a junior ancillary project from Google instead of a well fleshed out and developed app. It's predecessors we're superior. That being said, I do like the ability to multi emoji react to a message.

Nice update for Google Hangouts which is going away at any time. Hangout's used to be nearly an all in one for communication, but Google stripped a lot of the functionality for no particular other than they were introducing other apps that ended up dying on the vine. This is the replacement. Fairly basic, functional and the UI is slightly better than Hangout's. I hope Google continues to work with it instead of letting it go after 6-12 months. Right now I like it.

- Rob W

Again, updates have fixed nothing about this terrible app. Stay away from this if you have any other alternatives. Very buggy and dropped notifications. Unable to go direct video call in app, requires a separate app. Too much friction. Unable to open URLs in a separate browser, links open up in the app, which is a dumb idea.
