Seems like a late stage beta more than a refined product

devLife404

Overall, not a bad app but needs some refinement and bug squashes.

1. UX suggestion - The "is typing" notification appears under the text input box which pushes the input box up. This makes the input box partially cover the last message, so if there's a rapid convo goiing, you basically have to wait until the other person is done typing or scroll constantly to see what they wrote. It'd be better if you left a pad on the bottom for notification. The constant shift of elements is maddening. having it appear above the input and shifting the convo would be just as annoying.

2. 1-to-1 BUG - There are times where a single 1-to-1 will silently fail. I will receive messages from every other person and group chat, but won't be able to receive or send messages in that 1-to-1. I have no idea that it happens and will miss important messages. The only thing which fixes it is to restart the app.

No Ability to change Look

Sooth central

It may have Slack like functions but there is no preferences pane to allow for customization of the font size so unless you have a microscope hooked up to your computer monitor and enjy the font of the app store review pages, then you are in good hands otherwise its awful. Colors? There is no documentation anywhere to deal with colors, I think you have to download the source off of github and build your own version in order to customize. I am a developer but I have better things to do with my time than deal with figuring this stupis stuff out, so GUYS GET IT TOGETHER AND HIRE A UX DEV

Pretty lousy macOS app

sef-1

1. Preferences are not done via command-,
2. Puts in a menu-bar icon, with no way to remove it.
3. Normal text edit controls (aka emacs editing) does not work at all.
4. Some of the preferences (done in the window, not the normal way) WILL NOT SCROLL.
5. Doesn’t use Notification Center APIs for controlling notifications.

This is pretty clearly a non-native app that Apple should never have approved.
