Seems like a mobile-first attempt at Slack for friends: "Create Spaces for conversations on any project, hobby or group in your life.
Invite people to each Space so everyone stays in sync."



Curiously I discovered this via an ad on Instagram (yes, I tapped on an Instagram ad!).

@chrismessina That's how I discovered this app a while ago, too! The design drew me in. Guess ads do work.

@chrismessina "Curiously I discovered this via an ad on Instagram" < IG Ad campaign performance not too shabby then; a Chris Messina post and top of PH!

@chinozc @chrismessina this happens sometimes when people are on wifi and don't have good cell coverage

I'm still not sure why this is better than iMessage, Facebook or WhatsApp group chats?

@robbyedesign agree. As far as I understood, you can do everything that Espresso Chat do in some other messengers like Facebook Messenger, Telegram or WhatsApp and you don't need additional app and account.

@suholet And literally the entire world has Facebook so that makes life to much easier. Imagine how hard it would be to get everyone to download an app. Plus with no desktop/browser app you can never use you computer. I feel someone should try and solve this in a better way!

@robbyedesign @suholet Not literally.

@robbyedesign This app has some unique features not had by some of these other platforms (AFAIK). Plus, being a productivity app kinda helps separate work and play (like Slack); I personally don't like having conversations that even resemble productivity on Facebook Messenger. Also it's pretty beautiful!

@robbyedesign the biggest feature this seems to have is highlighting messages -- the equivalent of starring in Slack. It also has a confusing nested design with rooms + channels, kind of like a bunch of Slack instances + channels all in the same app.

@drrza I take it you didn't like it.

@chrismessina i like the clean ui, but it's not really usable. the concept is a bit confusing too

@rubencodes @robbyedesign there is really lots of exciting things happening in chat/messaging and we are very much focussed on creating a space where you can use chat to be productive. very much as @robbydesign says...thanks for the kudos on the design!
