WhatsApp Desktop

WhatsApp, now on your desktop

Anshuman Chadda- MD MPH; Physician Entrepreneur
I store everything (notes, attachments, voice memos, photos, videos) on Whatsapp... Obviously, I also use Evernote, but I find it an extremely bulky app and definitely a memory hog. In WhatsApp- I use a private group that is only viewable by me. Everything is searchable within this group, and everything is automatically backed up on iCloud. (https://www.l… See more

Rambox

Desktop messaging for over 48 email & messaging apps

With Rambox you will need to worry about messaging and privacy no more! It is a platform that will let you combine your emailing and messaging applications into one. Every session you log in expires at the moment you log out, so you don't worry about your privacy and meanwhile, you can lock it if you want to spend some time away from your computer.

Lyondhur- T&R Project Manager at Weta Digital
Better than Franz and other similar apps, simpler and and with way more service integrations. Plus, I feel it is a more cared for project, with good customer support and decent updates.
Ángel Blanco- Lead Acquisition 👥∞
A Franz-like desktop app to have all your messaging apps into the same window. I'm not sure if you were asking exactly for that, but it's the first thing that came into my mind, hope it helps.
Paweł Derehajło- PHP Developer
I'm using this instead of Franz because if any of the apps breaks and it doesn't load in Franz you have to restart the whole app and in Rambox you can simply refresh single app tab.

Messenger Lite is a slimmed down version of Messenger that offers the core features of Messenger for markets with slower than average internet speeds and a prevalence of basic Android smartphones.

The Verge
Earlier today I published an article about Facebook Messenger's new, somewhat improved home screen. But despite the company's attempt at some cleanup, I came away with the same feeling I've had for months: Messenger has transformed into a bloated mess. Commenters on that story agree, and so does pretty much everyone I've asked here at Vox Media's New York of… See more

Manageyum 2.0

A browser made precisely for your apps.

Ivan Wong- QCG
Not free (unless you recommend 5 friends) and independent of the browser, but I found this to be the fastest and most stable of all the options for the Mac.
Luca Demian- 16 Year Old Founder @ collabster
Best one I've used.
Niklaus Gerber- Crafting outstanding digital services
Once you use it you will never go back. FRANZ is also great but hogs way more ressources.

CNET
Over the course of an hour or so, I'm likely to get dozens of notifications -- several messages from different Slack groups, a few Hangouts messages, maybe some messages or notifications on Facebook, Twitter mentions, an SMS or two and some emails.
