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.

Guesty reviews

All in all: pretty terrible. Notifications delayed. Tapping notifications doesn't open them. App signs out, sometimes multiple times a day (usually every couple days). Just onboarded my portfolio with Guesty but the shakiness of the mobile app is making me take pause with continuing using the platform. Would be eager to see changelog/timeline of fixes. This level of functionality is unacceptable given the cost of service. Better yet--focus on making a responsive browser app experience.

Your new updated app DOES NOT WORK. I continue to have problems and cannot use my phone for my business with your app. I am so disappointed that all your new roll out improvments were obviously not beta tested well enough. This has cost me so much valuable time!!!

- Catherine Ventling

One of the main reasons I signed up with Guesty is because they have the app. But it's very basic and keeps crashing and doesn't show messages in real time, some never show up and some with a few hours delay which makes the communication with guests very difficult. Support is also another big issue. I can only contact Guesty by email and they don't reply for days/weeks and even then their reply is rarely helpful. Extremely bad value for money, I'll have to cancel them if they don't sort it
