- Dozens of integrations with tools including: Dropbox, Asana, Google+ Hangouts, Twitter, Zendesk
- New integrations and features added frequently
- Inline images and video, with rich link summaries giving context without leaving the app
- Instantly synced across all devices

- Scientifically proven (or at least rumored) to make your working life simpler, more pleasant, and more productive

“There are two types of people in the world: those who have never heard of Slack, and those who can’t imagine life without it.” - The Guardian

“You can tell that the team that designed it really took their time focusing on the little big details. It’s simple to use and powerful at the same time.” - User Experience Rocks

What's new in version 2.05

- Fixed: performance issues on teams with lots and lots of users
- Fixed: crashes related to the aforementioned performance issues on large teams (the ones with lots and lots of users)
- Fixed: much whizzier loading times for all teams (even the ones with lots and lots of users)

This is a very good client and one of the reasons we use Slack at work. It's being actively and heavily developed, too.

SLACK has been a fabulous way to break away from tedious email threads and get messaging across quickly to my team.
