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

Rocket.Chat reviews

"Quick Communication Tool" What do you like best about Rocket.Chat? One of the things I like about this tool is easy to add a new server or as many servers as we like depending on the work that we have with different stakeholders. It makes it so easy to create different communication channels which is very handy when we have multiple projects to manage. Review collected by and hosted on What do you dislike about Rocket.Chat? The UI can be improved a bit and the mobile experience can able be worked on. Using it from a mobile device can be troublesome sometimes when we are in hurry and want to message someone instantly. Review collected by and hosted on What problems is Rocket.Chat solving and how is that benefiting you? We are basically using this to have internal / client communication with our core and client teams. It has made it easy to have different communication channels/servers as per need.

"RocketChat - Great for Big Companies" What do you like best about Rocket.Chat? The application itself is open-source, so it has a multitude of capabilities. It's also decently secure, and you can share sensitive data over it as long as the system admins and coders that set it up for you know what they are doing. It has a massive amount of addons and what-not. It's overall an excellent tool to use for teamwork. It's the best free alternative to slack and others like it. Review collected by and hosted on What do you dislike about Rocket.Chat? I wouldn't say I like that it does not have a built-in dark theme customizatioin; not only that, even the more trivial customizations you might want to have required at least basic knowledge of coding or something akin to that. Review collected by and hosted on Recommendations to others considering Rocket.Chat: It's a pretty decent application to use for businesses. It has many different functions and the ability to accommodate almost any needs of your particular niche in industry. But I have to say it's not the neatest and easiest to use. Review collected by and hosted on What problems is Rocket.Chat solving and how is that benefiting you? We use it on a daily basis to work with the most sensitive data there is, like medical records, personnel files, private information of individuals. It allows us to create different teams who can communicate separately about their own specific niche in a private separate room/channel.

Spike reviews

Spike makes inbox zero nearly effortless, with easy mass archive and trash and built-in unsubscribe and blocking. Organizing by conversation participants and presenting the thread like a chat conversation fixes the problem I've had with virtually every other email client where you can't tell which direction the conversation is going or where the newest message is. It just makes sense.

- Michael V.

Everything works: unified inbox, signature customization, hot keys, thread view for emails, and Google contacts integration. Making email for my business impossibly simple and fast.

- Chad M. Insurance Producer

My favorite part is that I don't spend half my day cleaning up my inbox and Imreally love the display contact feature that not only lets you see name and photo of sender but all previous emails in the side panel too! I've been trying out others but Spike leave the rest behind

- Steve P. Ceo

Pros & cons


It's easy to use and to create and public and private channel for communication
The API is easy to integrate and we can have good control over the software as an administrator
It also allows us to create groups/channel if we need to communicate to an entire department

UXUI is bad
It can be integrated with few apps such as SharePoint, so we don't get status updates when in a meeting
It should also have the feature of voice calls which is missing.


I really like the clear and clean interface, I love simple and non-confusing things
It has everything it takes to get into the toolbox of marketing.The way Spike sorts emails is genius
It turned my inbox into a chat-like experience, where emails are grouped by people and not threads/topics - so it actually feels like I'm using a IM and not an outdated email client.the ability to have it setup on multiple devices so you have access to the information when you need it
Being able to "PIN" items for quicker access
also the ability of finding any attachment based on a specific contact.

Some of the more advanced features still need some work
I'd love to see tagging in notes (so collaboration would be smoother), or the option to add a call link into an invite directly (like in Google Calendar).having the ability to use the "REPLY ALL" being more accessible and not have to hunt for it.Wish there was a way to click on a calendar date in an email and have it added to the Spike Calendar
Smart email folders might also be useful for Spike.
