Franz 2.0

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

2.8/5
About

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.

Would you recommend this product?

This coupled with proper videochats from appear.in, Skype and a few others would make this not just a killer app, but a terminator app.

Pros:

Unbelievably small memory footprint. Extra layer for messaging app notifications. Simply superb.

Cons:

If only SMS and iMessage were available.

I like the idea of having one desktop app for all my messaging needs. This one is pretty good because it includes two big ones for me: FB Messanger and Whatsapp. It'd be perfect if it had IMessage too.

Pros:

It works well with Messanger and Whatsapp

Cons:

It doesn't include Imessage and I use an app called GroupMe which is on their list but it doesn't work

真的没有什么卵用,与其用这个,不如用Chrome,再固定几个常用聊天工具的tab标签页,配合bookmarks,extension,相差无几。

Pros:

none

Cons:

1. 用Electron包装的浏览器,但凡使用Electron的,应用的体积都不会小

2. 整合各个聊天工具的web版,web版的体验相对肯定没有app好,例如:微信

nice idea but RAM usage is far too high for a chat app. I know 8 GB is minimum nowadays but even then over 1 GB is too much.

Pros:

support for a lot of platforms

Cons:

HUGE memory consumption (over 1 GB)

Never check all applications for whether inboxed or not. These apps like Station and Stack that curate applications and localize that desktop app increase recently. The app does not give notifications from the applications involved.

Pros:

All-in-one management communication

Cons:

No support for Japanese tools like ChatWork and LINE

Would not recommend! Lack of support, no answer to emails. After last update services do not load, tried everything. Before was slow and had bugs...and too long to correct them. But mainly, it doesn´t work now, and customer support is inexistent. Much rather pay for a service that works and that values customers.

Pros:

Nothing. Doesn´t work

Cons:

Doesn´t work. No customer support.
