Review of Warp
Why do you have to sign in to use a terminal app? Really wanted to try this, but I think I'll pass. Reply: (seems it's not supported to reply to replies, so adding it here) I'm specifically referring to trying the app out. Long before I want to share preferences or do anything involving other people, my first need as a user is to try this out without sharing my identity or installing spyware. Earn people's trust first, THEN most will happily share data or money or both if they have a real need that the product solves.

Hi Chris, we appreciate your feedback. We are requiring sign in because it enables syncing settings across machines, command sharing with teammates, and command generation using OpenAI Codex. We understand folks want to see value before signing up. We're having conversations internally about this concern and will keep the community posted.

Review of Warp
why do I need an account to use a terminal app? just let me try before I give you my info. EDIT: > One is that we think there are features that require login in order to create a better user experience. The other is to improve our product during beta. none of those 2 reasons need to force you to have an account, you can leave it open and let people share feedback via email or in a form somewhere else? I see your thinking, but from a user perspective it seems just a marketing tool. "thanks for trying this product, now we got your details"

Login serves two functions now. One is that we think there are features that require login in order to create a better user experience. The other is to improve our product during beta. 1. We believe that the terminal is more powerful when you can share commands with teammates, generate commands using Open AI Codex, or run shared wikis directly in the terminal. These are not possible if users do not have an account with us. We've already begun building team features and we want to be able to ship them to our users without friction. 2. For our public beta, we do send telemetry and we do associate it with the logged in user because it makes it much easier to reach out and get feedback when something goes wrong. But we only track metadata, never console output. For an exhaustive list of events that we track, see here: https://docs.warp.dev/getting-st.... If this is uncomfortable to you, please wait for Warp to enter General Availability. At that point our plan is to make telemetry opt-in and anonymous.

I've some questions/comments. First of all, congrats. This looks amazing. Wish you the best. I use EMACS. What do you think of this? Would you recommend Warp to me? Should I Forget about Emacs? Complement them? ... And I see the term uses vi shortcuts. Is this configurable to use Emacs shortcuts? Cheers! Really excited for this. Looking forward for the missing OS versions.

Thank you! Our input editor uses emacs key bindings! And yes, emacs/vim do enjoy using Warp as well.

The best terminal I've every used. Helped me a lot with the AI integration too.

It is still early days for me, but so far, Warp has definitely improved my productivity on the terminal. The terminal is such a critical part of my toolbox that whoever makes something that is meant to improve my experience needs to nail it, and so far, Warp has nailed it. Good job folks!

It started out great, but the forced login and survey does it for me. Sure, I will login if it improves my experience on your app, and especially if I already like it -- but I hate being forced to go through it when I'm trying to get something done. It doesn't end there either, we have a long mandatory survey with mandatory questions, and a tiny hidden skip button for some of the questions. Why put the skip button there at all if you're so desperate to have people answer your survey? For fairness to Warp, the configuration for the app was reset after I had to reset my macOS password, and the keychains were removed / not synched yet. It is a one time step when you first install the app, but I continue to dislike being made to go through that long process for a terminal.

Hi Naved, thank you so much for your feedback. The survey is optional, but it's our bad this is not obvious enough. We're going to refresh that survey, and hopefully we can win you back then.

Fast terminal app that really redefines the use of the terminal in general. Once it incorporates dotfile sync, alias and env variable syncing it'll be quite indispensable.
