Great too for work and play! 5/5
By Mr Wright08
Used amongst the business professionals of many well known companies and also with friends and family.
Great for most purposes 5/5
I will always prefer the PC due to the immense integration one can utilise while in a browser or on the desktop app, however the mobile app provides me with a quick tool to message my team when I am away from my pc making it perfect for my purposes
Would’ve received 5 stars, but. 3/5
I love the idea and the company behind it. I’ve used it to communicate with three to four different overall groups/classes and had never had any issues until the most recent update. The app lags A LOT. To the point that it’s been frozen and I’ve had to delete the app and re download it.
Like I said, I love the idea. I use the app on my computer and it works great - but the iOS app could use some work!
I am a confirmed "Slacker" 5/5
I have used Slack for over a year with one group and have just introduced it to a second unrelated group. I LOVE SLACK! Equally important the folks I am introducing it to seem to be very pleased with their Slack experience thus far. Thank you for a great product!
Doesn’t seem to work on iOS 11 1/5
Installed this, put in the url, pressed next and that is it, nothing happens, next is grayed out at this point.
Using a browser on the computer to the same url works fine
Search under don’t know your url hangs too
Love Slack! 5/5
Makes communicating, especially urgent items, easy and efficient in a high paced environment.
Easy, Quick, Organized and Great Communication Tool 5/5
Slack is only use for heavy duty communication in an organized manner. It also has amazing access controls. Great features for coders, very easy to install and maintain, great phone app, very fast, real-time response, giphy options are awesome and the simplest user interface ever. It’s not useful or helpful or it’s just another ordinary tool if you just want chat..... it’s great if you want your communication to be well organized, easy and quick.
Love it 5/5
Don't know what I did without it and now couldn't live without it!
Great way to keep us all in the loop 5/5
My large family used to use group email which would get lost in inboxes full of everything else. This app lets us categorize the conversation and stay in the loop with what's going on in each other's another's lives,
Makes my job possible 5/5
A good chunk of my work is done collaboratively via slack, if it weren't for slack my work would take up a lot more time and I wouldn't be able to work remotely nearly as well. Thank you slack for making my life easier
Love it, Needs optimized Picture handling 3/5
By ["Hip", "Hip"]
First off, thank you slack for a great app. The note taking section to yourself is fantastic as well, among other features. The only reason for the stars is that I have one big issue with the app that I want to see improved.
If there's anything that needs improvement, it's the ease of access for pictures. Sending multiple pictures on the phone app version is very clunky and time consuming. Also, in the app version, once you open a picture, it's very slow to exit the picture. It has a slow, trembling frame animation when it closes that slows the process down (personally, it should have no extra animations - the faster, the better). This gets very annoying if people send you multiple pictures - it's slow and clunky to try to view them in sequence. It should be more like WhatsApp or Google/Apple Photos, where when you scroll one way or the other, you can scroll left to all of the previous pictures that were sent in that chat. I realize Slack needs to maintain its individuality, however, this small adjustment, even if it mimics things that other apps do, would be an improvement. It should also have a gallery tab where we can see the pictures from the chats in a reduced format for ease of access (again, like previously mentioned apps do)
tl;dr: Please optimize the way slack handles pictures!
Good concept poor execution 1/5
I use slack a lot of work it’s basic function works pretty well. But the user interface on mobile and desktop is very poorly executed. First of all, you should have one slack account that allows you to sign on to multiple teams at once. Instead, you have to sign on to each team individually on every instance of the app on every device. And if you don’t use the app very often, you’re likely to spend days or weeks swiping and pushing different buttons to try and figure out how to navigate between teams and channels. I understand it’s like has quite a few employees. Maybe they should hire someone who actually knows how to design a usable application.
Both the desktop and app can be very buggy 1/5
The app and desktop need more stable
We should all use Slack 5/5
By Jeremy J Anderson
Abandon email as much as possible, in favor of Slack. Seriously. Slack is the only product I have ever rated at 5 stars. I don't write five star reviews. Except Slack.
Very helpful app in a group! Like what's App, but maybe better!
No copy and paste or dictionary look up 1/5
Any app that primarily deals with text should not leave out inline copy and past or dictionary lookup.
It's a great way to keep your employees or organization members updated on events. It's also really great for communication. There are a few bugs like if you just join a team, it doesn't show you all of the various channels that are available so you may miss some things until you go searching yourself. Overall, it's effective and a great system.
Great app for business 5/5
By Mason Krey
I manage an escape room called Grand Rapids Escape Room and we use Slack as a company for all of our locations. Great way to stay in touch with all employees, management and other departments!
A little slower with all of the new functionality 3/5
Still kicks HipChats butt.
By Makes shahs
Would be great but there are too many problems 2/5
No Siri integration yet?!?! This is almost impossible to believe by now but it’s true. I can’t tell Siri to send a slack message and therefore revert to iMessage.
No iOS keyboard integration for emoji yet...also almost impossible to believe by now.
Kills battery in iOS 11...I open Slack and just watch my battery meter drop.
This app has potential but it seems that the developers aren’t focused on iOS in any meaningful way. Hence, our company uses iMessage half the time instead.
Best Team communication app 5/5
I've been using Slack for several years and have to say that it kills the completion. Their service has never gone down, and their integration with other apps/bots/APIs is unparalleled. Wish work would switch to Slack (currently using hipchat which is not nearly as reliable).
Best chat app 5/5
Like Skype for Business in its level of functionality. Sexy interface as well!
Great platform, heavy iOS app 3/5
First of all, I love Slack (the platform.) I use it everywhere for everything with anyone who matters to me.
That said, I’m familiar with the product which itself is fantastic. Unfortunately the iOS app chugs along quiet slowly on my iPhone 6 running iOS 11. As a testament to that, the app’s size in MB is so much larger for iOS than Android.
Needs constant redownloading 1/5
By Cwyn 1234556
This app is great when it works, but after about four days of use on IPad, it freezes, will not work no matter what I do. Redownloading gives me another four days. They keep removing reviews here, so be warned, this app is poor at best.
Not loading content after upgrade 1/5
After updating, it shows offline. Restated the app. Not working.
Storage space is an issue too
Great tool 5/5
We use in our small law office. We had to write some of our own "best practice rules" (like phone message channels only get phone messages, no gifs in general, snooze when you aren't answering) but it's been a great tool for our office. Easy way to be sure you're keeping up with your team without getting in to email all the time. We love it because if person a has a question for person b, a send the question and b gets to answer when they have the time in their day. Minimize interruptions while also allowing the person with a question to say it when they're thinking about it. We love slack. It's AOL instant messenger for professionals. I do wish it was easier to upload images etc without the comments being a weird title.
Great for OOO 5/5
Excellent for this contractor needing to stay in the loop of the full-time team.
Terrible implementation 1/5
Scammers are using slack to steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from slack users. Despite repeated complaints from the cryptocurrency community slack has continued to ignore the problem.
Amazing app 5/5
Super cool app to collaborate within teams
Very useful but CONSTANTY frozen 3/5
I use this app to connect with Pokémon go players in my area so we can meet up for raids, etc. But every single time I open the app, it freezes on the most recent messages of the last channel I viewed. I have to close and open the app multiple times before it decides to work properly and sometimes (like right now) it's completely unusable because it stays frozen despite me reopening the app, checking to make sure I didn't miss an update or something, or restarting my phone. I have mentioned this issue to other users and they say they often have the same problem. How am I supposed to use a product that I can't even get to open properly? Please fix this issue.
Perfect for office use 4/5
I love it but it could be faster in phone. Sometimes i get messages after half an hour
So what 3/5
By Jon LA Westwood
There are a lot of these clients. This one is particularly impressive. Strong on integrations, but difficult for end users to configure. We are "losing" internal users which reduces usefulness.
Love it 4/5
By learning to juggle
Expect a bit of a learning curve at first but once you are there, it works great!
I'm not getting any notifications 4/5
It's all the in the title
Very slow 1/5
Slack has been very slow on my iPhone SE since the last update. Almost unusable. Please look into this.
Love it 5/5
Very closely replicates the desktop experience and then some. Great way to stay in touch with the team on the go. Disagree with a lot of the negative review as notifications work fine for me and the only issue is Slack iOS sometimes taking a sec to sync to catch itself up to the online status if I've been offline. And it's free. And it's fun.
iPhone reboots or freezes 1/5
By Bob Murry
Since installing Slack iPhone 5s freezes up and will even reboot itself. Colleague with iPhone 5 is experiencing the same thing. Happened twice tonight to me.
Can't thank you enough 5/5
By Super f happy
Let Emojis in Names Again!!! 1/5
By Tap a star to rate:5
Emojis are a great way to communicate without words and at a glance. In my Slack workspace emojis in names were used to communicate the different roles members played. It's quick, readily accessible (no need to open someone's profile), and transcends languages, which is essential for global Slack groups like my own. Not only that, but emojis in names added to the experience and made Slack more attractive and engaging. The loss of this feature is a loss for the Slack platform, and it is my hope that you replace it with something equally as game-changing.

Thanks to this app I can stop using skype!
Poor application 3/5
By Sergey Finesse
The app is slow, even on a top device. It often doesn't receive notifications when it is off and doesn't update notifications counter despite the background refresh setting is on. The app is made on HTML apparently, that's why it has such problems.
Very useful and fun to use 4/5
I love the conversational vibe, the immediacy. Slack has created a great sense of "team" among our distributed group. Only problem I have is too many places to check - email, Slack, Basecamp, texts. Gets overwhelming and sometimes hard to find communications.
Fun and easy to use! 5/5
My networking group uses Slack and we're so happy with it!
Poor performance but it does what it needs to 2/5
Resource hog, slow startup, slow navigation, but it works.
Working again 5/5
Fun and integrated 5/5
Everything I use integrates with slack. The UI/UX is like butter. Love it!
Very useful 5/5
Best chat app out there... hands down!
Can't really imagine my life without slack. Super slick, clean and to the point. Keep up the good work!
