Creates more work 2/5
Eventually slack will cause reduced productivity. It’s a flawed work space that will clutter things, hide actionable tasks, and while it’s highly customizable, the sum of all options does not let you be more productive or for that matter less interrupted.
Lack of ability to sort channels is huge.
No AI or any computer learning to self adjust to your behavior.
If you are involved in multiple teams, it’s a disaster. Once you are in one Slack team, the other is forgotten. Have to manually switch and open app all the time to see if messages came.
Overall, this is hurting our team’s productivity. Also, no integration with Apple’s “I’m driving.” Can’t wait for iMessage corporate version.
Great tool 5/5

Don’t know what my team would do without it.
iPhone X 5/5

It’s actually really good on my iPhone X
Best app to reach co workers any time 5/5
By Chaitanya Yeluri
Best app with beautiful app support
Great app! 5/5
Easy to use and very useful
Love it 5/5
Can’t imagine trying to do work without it. Now if only I could get my friends/family onboard! #slackerseverywhere
Good but what about unreads? 4/5
I’m scared to read messages on my phone sometimes because then I will forget what’s new when I get back to my computer and have time to respond. The “all unreads” view from the desktop would be perfect for how I want to use slack on my phone, but that feature is omitted!
Love it 5/5
Best messaging app for work 5/5
Love the seamless transition between desktop and mobile app.
I got the app on my iPad, but every time I open the app it crashes immediately. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but alas still no positive results.
By PartyTime Mike
Very functional and does a great job with communications!!
Designed for bosses, not for people 1/5
Let me give just one example. The most important feature of Slack is Do Not Disturb. Without this feature, Slack would fully catapult us into the dystopian nightmare where every minute of your life is colonized by your job. Thankfully, DND lets users set their own preferences for when they receive notifications during the day. However, there is no switch to mute all notifications on the freaking weekend, so between 9 and 5 or whatever, your workaholic coworkers can still bother you while you’re playing with your children.
Imagine that level of attention to detail and care for the sanity of workers, but in every conceivable aspect of a job. That is the Slack experience. Thanks, Slack.
Doesn’t work for Apple Watch 1/5
I use slack for work and I just got an Apple Watch and slack dosnt work for my Apple Watch 3series
Great app but has problems 3/5
I always have to keep having to sign in and it will never just stay signed in. Other than that this app is great!
Can’t select and copy text. 1/5
It’s so ridiculous that you can’t hold your finger over text in a channel and select it and copy, THIS IS NATIVE BASIC FUNCTIONALITY!!!!! WHATS THE MATTER WITH YOU GUYS!!!!
Available setting turning on 1/5
I like the app fine, but hate hate hate that if I log in on my computer app - use it- the log off (thus making my status off line), that it automatically sets me to available on the phone app. Recently it appears as though as soon as I open the phone app it sets me to available. I want to be able to read our channel without being set to available and/or having to set it manually each time I’m using the app
By CO Rooster fan
We love this app! It is a great biz tool to communicate with our staff. Very convenient and love the ability to add files such as word and excel docs, pictures and links.
Perfect for the workplace 5/5
Use this for our entire company to keep employees updated day to day on tasks and events! Love it be highly recommend it
Wrong direction 1/5
The newest updates have been such a major disappointment. The All Unreads addition just takes up space where I need it the most and is unnecessary; I wish it were optional. And the change in emojis...I’m a grown woman and these things don’t really matter, but god I swear they are so ugly it makes me not want to use Slack. I’ve read it’s a rights issue. So disappointing.
Great app 5/5
Great way to stay connected and collaborate.
Game Changing Colaboration 5/5
This is a disruptive collaboration solution. The key differentiator is its ability to tie into other applications.
Badge icon doesn’t update 3/5
I read messages it says are unread and the badge icon doesn’t update to reflect this. Please fix this.
I love Slack!! 5/5
Slack has made communication faster and more straightforward for all of the teams that I work on. I don’t know what we do without Slack!
It’s good 4/5
My class and I use it to communicate and we like to play around with the usernames. I wish you could use emojis in them.
I’m always impressed with slack.
Workplace message 5/5
By Obama approved
Great for keeping up on tasks with co-workers!
Thank You Slack! 5/5
My robotics team uses slack and it has revolutionized our communications! There are very few issues and tons of functionality; get it.
Bring back the Apple Watch app 1/5
It was nice having that interface. Why take away something that wasn’t interfering with the iOS app? Leave well enough alone.
Too difficult 2/5
What’s the point of having a communication app if multiple emails can’t be utilized in one place or if it’s so difficult to change from one organization to the next on the mobile device
Make my phone to slow 2/5
It's too heavy , notification doesn't clear how turn on
Great user experience 5/5
Slack is great! 4/5
I have two workgroups on Slack now. It's easier than email, FB messenger, etc. to have active conversations about things/projects.
Nice app 4/5
It took me a while to figure out I had to touch the slack icon on the upper left for my channels. Otherwise no issues.
Great app 5/5
We use this for communication between coworkers it is great.
Great, but won’t show thread for most recent message 4/5
Great app for my iPhone but it won’t show the thread for the most recent message. Very frustrating bug!!!
Anything less than a 5 star for Slack is unacceptable. This product is so clean, so seamless and so easy to use that it actually makes you want to go to work more! On top of that there is a free version. When people give you something this amazing for free and you rate less than 5 stars, you are living an entitled life. Grab some joy out of life and be thankful for such an amazing blessing. ‘Nuff said.
Buggy app — why ditch the Apple Watch? 1/5
By The Faj
That’s some revisionist doublespeak—“we made your app better by killing the Apple Watch app”. The iOS app has tons of weird non native feeling gestures. Why not just make a good iOS app?
Follow up to the developer response:
Again with the doublespeak. I understand how rich notifications work—don’t treat the abandonment of the Apple Watch app as a good thing. Slack’s apps across all platforms are generic and non-native. Have some respect for the people who use your platform and make your company worth something.
Uses so much battery!! 1/5
Absolutely unacceptable. It's the same crap as on my desktop.
Great app 5/5
Works for the group we have. Wish there was a way to integrate additional storage without having to pay additional fees.
Latest version crashes on startup 5/5
By Andrew T.
Our IT department told us not to update to this latest release because it would crash.
They were right.
fixed in the latest release
Do be a slacker GET SLACK! 5/5
Ok after looking for an office instant messenger program this thing is pretty cool. You can message a desk top or send it out to peoples phones if they are working away from their desk. I’m still new and learning slack but so far it’s great.
Amazing app 4/5
Yes it is like texting. The best part is being able to go back and see your past conversations without having to spend the amount of time you would with email.
Advertisers can tracks every word you type 1/5

Boo@removing Apple Watch 1/5
“Slack”, more like “lack”
No watch app? No thanks 1/5
No watch app? No thanks
A step backwards
Apple Watch is not working 1/5
I am not getting notifications on my phone or watch.
Disappointed Slack Watch app disappeared. 4/5
I’m disappointed the Slack Watch app disappeared.
No Apple Watch app 2/5
Could be so great if it had an app for Apple Watch. I use Slack a lot for work and rely on my Apple Watch for notifications and messages. Sometimes I need to use my Apple Watch for quick responses but I can’t do that for Slack. So I fine myself using Slack less and less due to this missing feature.
Where is the Watch app go!? 1/5
Where did the Apple Watch app go? I used that all the time. Why did you remove it!?
