Having been a user of Franz for a long time now, I'm glad I found Station cause it has way more functionality :) Thank you for making this!
Although, I'm not sure on how I can mute particular apps from sending me notifications 🙃
EDIT 1: Multiple instances such as Twitter do not actually separate two accounts; if I log out of one, it logs out of the other.
P.S: I'll edit this review once I use it for a bit longer :)Pros:
Clean, minimal & functional.Cons:
Needs a little more basic features.
I've been using Station since it's very beginning (9 months ago). I use it now on a daily basis.
As a designer, I have on my desktop my Sketch, and of course my Station. It centralize all my work (InVision, Slacks, Gmail, Notifications, Trello... 300+ apps already, so crazy!). So no need to switch between thousand of tabs on chrome, or to set up my work everything morning. I just open Station and eveything is there : what I missed, my new assignments... It just makes you way more productive.
Give it a try people and get Station now !Pros:
nice experience, higher productivity, better perfs than chrome, centralized work, fast switcher, smart handle of pages, daily use baseCons:
can't wait for Single Sign In, and password manager features !!
I've been a heavy user of Station since day 1 and I never looked back. It allows me to separate professional apps that stay open all day long, and the constant open/search/read/close of tabs that happen in my browser.Pros:
Has all my workspaces setup properly, that I can access easily. All my professional Saas bundled in one app.Cons:
Discourages me to use my beloved Firefox. Eagerly waiting for that 1password integration ;-)
Appear.in doesn't seem to work - the cam (video) and sound don't launch.
Would love that in focus mode the screen become black or with a cool image - so that I can't see the screen, just focus on my work.Pros:
Replace easily Franz. UI is sleek. Really nice to focus in one place.Cons:
I'd like to bookmark myself the "tabs" of the same app, being able to do it manually.
I just received an email saying Station knew I had stopped using it. I was away from my computer for a week. Super creepy that they are keeping logs. I personally do not trust them any more and won't be using it anytime soon.Pros:
I liked how it could put all the apps in app.Cons:
For now stop being so creepy.
If you're working with multiple cloud apps I highly recommend Station, it changes your workflow so that you have way less back and forth between tabs, windows etc.
It already has 300 apps integrated and its just the start!Pros:
Super convenient to have all your apps in one place, you become much more productiveCons:
Can't imagine myself getting back to working without Station, literally a no-brainer when it comes to working across a zillion different software! Keep up the good work Station!Pros:
Keep me organized and focused throughout the day like I've never experienced before!Cons:
Can't wait for the single sign in feature!
Is there a way to replace chrome with station or to integrate chome in it? as there is no chrome app in stationPros:
neat and simplistic UICons:
I am still to figure out how to replace my chrome and all its tabs with station, without it, doesn't make much difference to me
I've used Station for a few months now, apart from a break of a few weeks when I changed company. After a couple of weeks without it, I had to contact the team to get access again because I fell into the Infinite Chrome Tab problem, which Station fixes.
It's great to keep you productive, keeping all of your work apps in one place, and well organised too. Need a Google Sheet, find it in a tab under Drive. Need ProdPad or Hotjar? Just click the logo and you're back in. Need to focus? Just turn off notifications. Need a new app added? Just ask the guys and they'll add it to their backlog.Pros:
Clean, great supportCons:
Doesn't yet support password manager, or Chrome apps like Grammarly
I have tried Franz and other sorts of unified workapp.
Station is definitely one that makes a difference !
I'm not sure it will be a reflex to open Station instead of Chrome/Firefox/Safari to find quick info ! The future will tell us :)Pros:
It's really convient to have everything in one place, with a great UX :)Cons:
I'd like to have extensions from Chrome for Gmail, Hubspot and other apps.
Seen it and Product Hunt and immediately replaced Franz for me, love the UI and the easiness of use, I have some nitpicks against it, but otherwise it is very nice.Pros:
Nice UI, has similar services to Franz and adds a lot of cool different services on top of that, love the open up to new windowCons:
Hate the sidebar that gets in the way when switching between services
Lacks some services that Franz/Rambox have, such as Facebook Messenger
Google sessions are shared, if you sign out from one app, you're signed out from other Google apps (not good, when you have multiple G accounts).
No Lastpass integration.
Zero security implementation (.. not cool)
I could go on.. but I'll stop here.
Great idea! Useful tool.Cons:
Station is a great app that let me offload several accounts that I used for school work and group projects (why does everyone use a different communication platform??). So far battery impact has been minimal, compared to what I experienced with Franz, and it offloads apps/accounts you haven't used recently to save energy. While mostly is just a web wrapper, it's an excellent application that lets you have 'permanent' web windows open to a wide range of accounts.Pros:
Excellent collection of 'apps' and smart freezing of unused apps.
Multiple windows for apps allow usage like web browser.Cons:
UI not as customizable as I would like.
Switching apps activates the info pane for that app, obscures window.
Some details about UX are annoying. Like for Slack, the icon is always the same (so you'"re not taking advantage of the slack customizable icon) and as the navbar is also on the left, when I change slack I have to put my mouse in the center of the screen before seeing what's new in my slack. The preferences panel is just BOooOoOoOoOooring.Pros:
Good performances, great view.Cons:
Improve the sidebar and the rollover of a service
I have multiple slack channels, some I want to receive notifications for, some happy to just check when I have free time, in which case I don't want to see an unread badge. I see no way to differentiate two in this, whereas Franz has this.
Happy to alter review if I missed settings on how to configure this.Pros:
Beautiful design, easy to useCons:
No per app notification handling, which makes it unusable.
