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

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.

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.

DatChat reviews

At first, I didn't realize how to use the destroy text within a certain time or how many times it can be viewed before self deleting. There is a small bomb icon next to the bottom text box that you can turn on and off with a touch. In the off position it texts as normal not hiding the text or anything, but you could always go back and destroy, or nuke what you have said. If you turn the bomb icon on you now can set how long your text last and they must hold the box on the screen to read.

Needs an Interface Overhaul. This app has the best security and privacy features out of any social media app, but it's user interface is very unpolished, and it feels like an outdated website. I feel like this app could draw in more users if it had a more attractive user interface. Another feature that would be nice would be adding different notification sounds to different contacts or adding an in-app guide to features that are not immediately obvious, similar to the tutorial chat.

Really interesting privacy features and has potential. Could use some nice UI upgrades. The only difficulty I have is manually navigating to my previous posts in groups if the notifications are dismissed. The notifications play sounds if you don't turn them off yourself, even when you're on vibrate/silent FYI.
