Lag time between loading the app and being able to respond to messages 2/5
There is a significant lag time between new messages and being able to respond in app. I get notifications with the content of the message outside of the app, but then I need to wait 20-60 seconds before the message appears in the mobile app. This is a terrible experience when I am toggling between apps.
Availability issues 2/5
Latest update has issues with or doesn’t show who’s actually available as their name bubbles are always blank. Also, it would be great to have a simple place to set your availability without having to go into your profile settings every time. Why this isn’t in the same place where you set a status (vacation, call, home, etc.) is puzzling.
this mobile app is not workomg at all 1/5
it stucks all the time, I cannot even scroll up and down to read my mesaages, I cannot click on any button and icon. It freezes all the time! I thought it was because of my phone at the beginning, I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it, the problem is still there!
lol they copied discord 3/5
Notifications are broken 2/5
By a fellow jedi
Ever since the last update or two, I get mobile notifications that have already been seen on desktop and/or have the channel muted. I must have had 100 of these “ghost” notifications by now. Please fix!
Difficult to find other employees. 1/5
By Baca Baca
Used Cisco jabber before for work and very pleased with it’s easy to use platform but slack is still in development.
Poor app 1/5
Group me is the superior app
Wouldn’t recommend 1/5
Too difficult to manage specific channel notifications.
Top notch! 5/5
I don’t know how our teams could collaborate as well without it. Just a top notch collaboration tool.
Fix dark mode pls 3/5
Before the iOS 13 update, Slack had an individual app display option that would allow you to switch to dark mode. Slack’s dark mode is faaarrrr better than iOS 13’s because the background color is easier on the eyes. IOS 13’s dark mode is too dark and the text is too bright. I shouldn’t have to set my entire phone on dark mode to be able to enjoy Slack’s pleasant function. All I’m asking for is an option to opt in to a Slack-only dark mode while still in light mode on iPhone.
- someone who is suffering with iOS 13 dark mode just for Slack
Lag in clearing badges 2/5
A badge about a new notification is not cleared after I read that flagged message on desktop.
It forces me to take an extra look at my phone to see whether I actually have a new message that I haven’t seen.
I haven’t experienced this with previous app versions.
Great way to communicate 5/5
We use this for our teams at church. Once you get everyone on board, it is a great tool.
By Nick Bastien
Has everything I need and more.
Sync Broken? 4/5
Not sure if it was upgrade to iOS 13 or a slack up but my badge icon always shows messages even though they were read already in the desktop app.
No problems 5/5
Works great! The search function really helps with finding old things that we were talking about last week and the different threads enable us to organize our talks better. Overall the software is super useful and helps my team communicate faster
Latest version pretty much always shows a red bubble even when I don’t have any notifications.
The phone app is flaky 2/5
The phone app is very flaky. It shows me incorrect status of people. It shows my status incorrectly. If I’m logged into both my desktop and phone app simultaneously, even though I’m online on my phone app it shows me as offline to others. It’s very frustrating :/
Great app but ... 3/5
By Barbie girl 2012
Wish Slack had the options under “Your Availability”. Similar to “do not disturb” having how many minutes and custom option. Honestly I’d rather not see a popup every few days asking if I want to change from “away” to “active”
Too much extra text in notifications 3/5
By Dissapointment Personified
First of all, I don’t get notifications for all my slack channels, and I miss really important things all the time. The automatic notification setting shud default to all notifications so I don’t have to adjust all 50 slack channels...secondly, if I do get a notifications, there’s too much text telling me which channel. The whole #channel thing is unnecessary, I just need to know who sent something, and I don’t need the ‘@‘ and also I don’t need the (bot) is thing either...the extra info takes up so much space in the notification that you can’t even see what they wrote.
Dark mode is gone 1/5
Boo, no more dark mode. My eyes hurt.
Huge stability and performance issues 2/5
App is well designed and super useful; however, that all gets outshined by its poor performance. App will often grind to a near halt on even the newest devices, if not outright crash.
Love slack 5/5
I’ve used so many collaboration tools but haven’t seen anything as good as slack. Once i learned how to discover and use its features, it has become second nature.
I don’t use whatsapp or texting to communicate with even my closest work colleagues anymore.
never get notifications 2/5
slack is cute & all, but i never receive new notifications for any messages i receive. i actually have never got a notification from slack at all. and i don’t need to be taught how to turn on notifications, i’m competent and used to work at the apple store. something wrong with slack, which effects how up to date i am at work. pls fix. every update i get my hopes up and nothing freaking changes lol
Great communication tool 5/5
Are organized loves using this communication tool. We were using FB chat so this is so much more organized and professional.
Need App to identify or flag on the icon when there are incoming messages not just highlighting the thread in bold
Great app, lacks directional arrow support for attached keyboards 5/5
Slack works beautifully on the iPad. With my new iPad Pro I am only using it after selling my laptop and I hate that I can’t use the navigational arrows to quickly get around the list of messages when quick switching. It seems trivial but it slows me down when needing to switch between tasks or different conversations because I have to select it on the screen with my Pencil or finger.
Edit: This functionality exists now. 5 Stars
Man, Instant Messaging has come a LONG way!! So far, I love Slack! ❤️
Where’s the content? 1/5
By Dames Rocket
All I have now is a bright white screen
App is good but badge won’t clear 4/5
I find the app useful but recently if I read a message on my desktop Slack the badge won’t disappear from my app, so when I go into the app there are no new messages.
Images should be carousel 4/5
When viewing full screen images swiping should take you to the next image. The “swipe to throw away with physics” gesture is cute for the first few days but gets annoying as you need to actually get things done.
Get this app. 5/5
Works wonders for company communication if your employees use it
slacks no slacker 5/5
By Til da trill
It’s been great. Still learning it’s functions.
Changed my world 5/5
At 55 yo I ain’t the most tech-advanced, yet likely kinda skilled for my generation....
That said, this app freakin’ rocks.
Fix notifications! 3/5
As others have noted, I keep getting notified of messages that I have already read on my laptop. This is a new issue but is not going away.
Good tool otherwise.
Everyone is on Slack go Mobile 5/5
Generally the best mobile chat client I’ve used. Great UI. Loving their dark mode. If you use Slack, use the mobile app.
Rudraraju venkata 1/5
By venkata rudraraju
Not responsive at times
Awesome tool for communicating 5/5
This is by far the best IM tool we have used in our company. We use the free version and it is more than enough for the basic communication need. We would like to introduce the apps in the future.
Notifications Are Broken 1/5
There are notifications for nonexistent messages that disappear when you open the app then reappear moments later.
This app is amazing so many people can be added. Amazing for business or group events. No payment required. Is it so much better than a million group texts. Just create a channel private and add them yourself or public so any one that is on your slack board can add by themselves. The best app for communication that I’ve ever seen or heard about. Much better than iMessage
Fix badges 4/5
By Merf merf merf
Please fix notification badges! It is so annoying to have a notification badge on my phone that will not clear until I open the app even though I have already read the message on my laptop.
Great tool 4/5
Love slack. Only problem right now is that it’s hard to tell whether someone is online or not because of the icon dot glitching where it’s not working properly. Says I’m offline; even though, I am online. Please fix as this is an important feature on the app when I’m slacking someone to know whether they’re on or offline through one glance.
Dude srsly 2/5
By s josh mm
Step up ur notification game, bro
We use it for communication within our company. Notifications and reminds don’t aren’t reliable on the desktop or app version. We are support. So this app is worthless. Also you lose your history after a few months. Don’t worry. You can pay to get it back....
fix customer's state menu 3/5
By Actually what
when entering a customer's state, please change the selection from a scroll menu to manually typing the state. would be way easier to start typing the state and have it autofill than scrolling all the way down over and over. thanks
Another distraction-who needs it 1/5
By Tech 7734
I have email, a cell phone, a desk phone, both with voicemail, ticket tracker why do I need another place to check for communication? I don’t need more notifications with people wanting my attention.
Needs an easier way to invite people just a link so people can click and join.
Twitter for business 1/5
Just as annoying as Twitter and Facebook postings with trivial updates and everyone a comedian.
#Gamechanger — One of the most impactful apps for business or pleasure. If you hate group text you’ll love slack
