How does this compare to Slacks own app directory?
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Services for startups
@david_diam I'm guessing that this allows any apps to be added, whereas the Slack directory has to review each one... maybe the review process here is more lenient ?

@bentossell @david_diam Tracking down the maker now so that he can answer these questions.

@david_diam We include a lot of apps which aren't in Slack's own app directory, and we also categorize apps differently to make it easier to find alternatives. We're also starting to write reviews of apps, to tell you a little bit more about how they work in practice. Hopefully, this will help you find more useful and relevant apps than you'd find elsewhere!

@curiousdamian @david_diam I think slack are working on their own review system, according to their public roadmap. Are you worried about legalities of using the Slack name as they tend to not like that so much 😬

Great site @curiousdamian! Your review sites always end up looking so polished. Do you do all the UI work yourself?
Curious Damian

@rossdcurrie I don't know that it's a particularly polished design yet, but I do I think that the best UI (UX?) is taking what's important to the user and making it as clear and easy as possible. In my opinion, it's the function that's first, and the polish that comes later

@curiousdamian Great site - very much needed! And thanks for featuring Kyber (http://www.slackreview.com/revie...). Do you know how the website's screenshot is imported? We have an image as background but it's not appearing on your site. Is there a way to perhaps switch to our Slack landing page (https://kyber.me/slack-integrati...)? Thank you and keep up with the great work - we will share the site with our Slack users.

@sivola I'll investigate that now and get it fixed for you ASAP. The screenshot is generated using phantomjs - I'm not 100% sure what happened, but it's possible that phantomjs received the event that the page was loaded before the background image was finished, or perhaps you're using some cutting-edge CSS on your site!

@sivola Hopefully should be fixed now :)

@curiousdamian Awesome - if you are working on it, perhaps just switch to our Slack landing page (we offer Kyber on more platforms): https://kyber.me/slack-integrati.... Will it get refreshed if we make changes in the future btw? Thank you!
Curious Damian
Curious DamianMaker@curiousdamian
@sivola Done. Yes, the information and images will be periodically refreshed.

Nice, are all of these manually added to the directory? Would be good to have a search input :)
Curious Damian
Curious DamianMaker@curiousdamian
@bentossell Currently we review everything manually, and our review process is a lot shorter than Slack's app directory (where reviews can take weeks)
