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

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

Rocket Chat reviews

Great quick app. Buggy at first but now pretty stable. Real test will be this week. If it doesn't freeze or slow down with a week of major market moving data coming I would call it stable. Once I got the hang of the features the app really grew on me for ease of use while mobile. It handles trading view copies perfect, easy commands to group or direct message. Seems like they are now adding features after the recent version upgrade also.

- Gregory M.

It's nice to know the app is in heavy development, but it doesn't bode well for it's reliability and bugginess. Every once in a while an update will break things, and everyone in our company has problems with mobile push notifications problems all the time, on Android and iOS. Sometimes they work pretty well then get completely broken. I often switch between the experimental and official app, but not in a fun way. EDIT: I'm now having to force stop and restart the app more than 10 times a day.

- Luke Box

I feel like this app is very laggy and inconsistent it has a hard time distubuting messages properly. They will send a message and I won't receive it till much later. And it's just the app. The desktop version dose not have this bug. I'm also unable to upload photos from my phone to the chat, even though it very clearly thinks it can.

Pros & cons

Spike

Pros
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.

Cons
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.

Rocket Chat

Pros
Free version for public chat
Some powerful features
Constantly developing

Cons
Confusing interface and install process
Some features seem underdeveloped
Tiered versions lead to more confusion
