Franz 2.0

Desktop app for Slack, WhatsApp, Skype, Telegram, Messenger

Franz 2.0 is a desktop app that puts messaging services altogether in one place. It can combine apps like WhatsApp, Slack, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, HipChat, Skype and a lot more. You can even use multiple accounts for the Facebook Messenger - mix your business profiles and your private ones if you need to.

Franz is great. My only gripe: it's resource hungry. So if you're on an old machine (i.e. an iMac 2009 with 8 GB RAM), it can be a little too much if you've got many tabs open. But apart from that I absolutely love it. :)

I started using it to have a desktop client for whatsapp, but turns out it's a great way to centralize everything !
Lifehacker
Windows/Mac/Linux: If you use a lot of different messenger apps to keep in contact with people, say, Slack for work, Facebook Messenger for friends, WhatsApp for people overseas, and Steam for your gaming buddies, you know how hard it is to keep track of all those. Franz stuffs them all into one app.

É difícil para qualquer aplicativo de mensagens novo enfrentar um monstro de popularidade como o WhatsApp. Afinal de contas, não basta conquistar o usuário; é preciso fazer com que ele convença seus amigos a instalá-lo também para poder haver uma comunicação. O Wafer é um aplicativo disponível para Android e iOS que tenta driblar essa restrição.
VTM NIEUWS
Wafer, zo heet de nieuwe berichtenapp die Messenger en Snapchat moet doen vergeten. Eén van de mensen achter de applicatie is Oostendenaar Niels Hoorelbeke die momenteel in Luxemburg woont. "Het unieke aan Wafer is dat je ook mensen kan bereiken die de app niet geïnstalleerd hebben."

Wafer pourrait bien ringardiser les ténors des applications de messagerie. Car elle va bien au delà des discussions traditionnelles à base de textes et d'images. Et en plus, un de ses créateurs est Belge! Toi aussi, viens goûter une bonne Wafer!
newsmonkey
Snapchat, WhatsApp, Messenger, en nu ook nog: Wafer. Wat? Ja! Wafer is een nieuwe Belgische applicatie die in het buitenland ook al een succes is. Het belooft heel veel: de chatapplicatie zou alle andere kunnen vervangen. Wafer Messenger heeft niet één nut maar meerdere: een combinatie van alle chatapplicaties die we tot nu toe kennen.
