Sblack

Ultra-lightweight Mac client for Slack, with Dark Mode.

3.3/5
About

Sblack is an ultralight Slack client built with Slack's core features in mind, it also comes with a Dark mode theme

Would you recommend this product?

Interestingly as far as i see from Activity Monitor, it uses more RAM (with the name of your Slack url) Dark mode is useful but needs small touches, otherwise i didn't find it useful (text color shouldn't be #fff for example, or file uploads shouldn't be sharp black #000) and also there are minor bugs about the dark theme..

As a conclusion; idea is good, execution needs more attention.

Pros:

Dark Mode

Cons:

Higher RAM usage

I was lucky enough to meet the two makers of this app that also made Boxy and really love every product they come up with! They treat their users right, with fast support and continuous updates

Pros:

Dark Mode on Slack

I love this idea and the dark mode works well for most of the interface. The dealbreaker for me is that it doesn't support calls, if you ever want to call or screenshare then you're better off with the native app.

Pros:

Dark mode for slack

Cons:

Doesn't support calls

Can't use it

Pros:

Dark Theme

Cons:

Mac only

It's better than the official client, and a step in the right direction, but still not quite there.

Pros:

It's a tonne lighter on memory and CPU than the official Slack client.

Cons:

It's still not a native app, and has all the UI oddities that come with that.

It'd be really nice if dark mode would auto apply based on system settings

Pros:

Feels snappier than the official app

Cons:

Not the official app (?
