Fantasitc team messaging app with a clear UI Design

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Offers a very strong free plan option which allows you to try out all of the great features and the paid plans are very reasonable.

Cons

Time differences on users comment can lead to some confusion on following time lines- similar to the likes of Slack- however the fact Flock offers such in depth features for a more reasonable price point makes it a great cheaper alternative to the likes of Slack

Budget friendly alternative for Slack

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The biggest plus of Flock is that it's pricing is much cheaper than Slack and comes with almost all the features of Slack. I've used multiple team communication tools - Slack, Stride, Google Chat, Chanty, Microsoft Teams. If budget is not an issue then you should always prefer Slack. I was using Stride(from Atlassian) - they retired the product and i'd to find an alternative. I finalized on Flock after evaluating all of them.

Cons

If you've used Slack, it's a little difficult to migrate to Flock. Mainly because the user experience is not as good as Slack. There are slight performance issues when it comes to Mac and Android apps for Flock.

A strong competitor for the likes of Slack

Reviewed 3 years ago

Flock has successfully replaced the likes of Slack and Skype at my organisation. There are still a few bugs here, a few features there that need to be sorted out, but it's stable enough for daily use.

Pros

I love the integrations and apps it offers, and the price at which it does that.

Cons

Flock tries to be a tad too annoying with its notifications.

Flock is the best!

Reviewed a year ago

I am a very satisfied customer. I feel I was provided with accurate information throughout the app so I could make an educated decision with my insurance options & finances. I hope we use Flock with our open enrollment every year!

Pros

It's super user friendly! I love how it breaks down the price & has a description for all items available.

Cons

Needs more of an explanation on the life insurance portion. Lots of questions that I had to call & ask for ehlp with, but that really wasn't an issue.

Great Replacement for Slack

Reviewed 3 years ago

Slack was limiting our ability to upload images, and had no way to delete very old images, so we had to make a move. Flock has been a great choice.

Pros

Set up was easy. Support staff was very responsive on a few questions I had. They have more functionality than Slack. And they have better pricing for the premium version.

Cons

Could you a few formatting fixes to make it easier to see unread messages. Everything else is great though.

Cheaper alternative to Slack

Reviewed 2 years ago

Flock is great if you need real-time messaging between and across teams

Pros

It's better than most chat software out there today. It gets the job well done for a better price than some of the higher-end options, like Slack, but at a higher quality than Microsoft Teams or Google Hangouts.

Cons

It doesn't have nearly as many plugins and features as Slack, but if your team only needs the core messaging functionality you should be fine.

Flock is the new slack

Reviewed 3 years ago

Flock is a competitive and great alternative to slack

Pros

Flock is a similar app to slack and is useful for team communication and collaboration. Although Flock's look is different from slack's it is however in my opinion a good substitute for Slack. Flock's competitive pricing also makes it endearing and worth a try. Flock supports file and media uploads and the possibility of creating different channels for varying conversations among team players.

Cons

So far, I haven't observed any flaw that is worthy of note. However, i'd recommend that upon first installation, there should be a popup to either turn notifications on or off as it could be overwhelming when there is a lot of conversation trail

Just Telegram or Whatsapp with some integrations!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Flock is really good, I recommend it to small IT or ITes company as most of the apps made available for keeping developers and programmers in mind. Whereas for rest it's better to use Telegram with IFTTT and Zapier or Try Workplace by Fb and MS Teams then switching from Slack to Flock. But those who're already using Slack, Flock is like Bullock cart Vs Bently (Slack) and sooner or later either you'll upgrade to Slack or Workplace by Facebook or Teams by MicroSoft.

Pros

- Easy to use - Affordable then Slack but not anymore after entry of Workplace by Fb and MS Teams (as they're almost free) - Best in class Support and they're always there to assist you

Cons

- A complete dearth of apps and integrations, NOT EVEN the 100 essential apps (by Slack) and must have Integrations are available on Flock, literally you'll regret and repent if you're switching from Slack. As just 54 App integrations are available that too without full functionality. - You can search a file but couldn't click or access it. - A Big NO for Media or Marketing Company as it may take years for you to find the image your teammate posted just 3 months back. - Slowest, let me repeat slowest app development I've ever seen in my life so far. No need to feature requests or app integration suggestions

A great alternative to Slack at a lower cost

Reviewed 4 years ago

A great cost-effective alternative to Slack. With unlimited members and unlimited teams, it really is an excellent tool for startups and SMBs.

Pros

To Do lists and faster speed versus Slack. The software is also lighter and doesn't hog as much hard drive, memory and bandwidth.

Cons

With more advanced features, it's a little less intuitive than Slack. I don't like the lack of passwords though and really don't like that I cannot send a message to myself (which was a great way to send files between my own devices before with Slack). Also, a VERY unfortunate name. A number of our younger staff still giggle when somebody in the office tells them to "flock something to them"

Good for small teams but lacks many features+integrations

Reviewed 3 years ago

We're a remote first startup and flock is helping us mainly in communication, work-related discussion and project managment.

Pros

We're one of the early adopters of the Flock and we've switched from Hipchat to Flock couple of years back. We love the channels and file sharing feature with integrations with Dropbox and G-Drive. It's quite affordable in comparison to Slack.

Cons

We wish their project development bring some essential features as there's very slow growth of the development of the Flock in past 24 months.

Wonderful Product

Reviewed a year ago

This has been a real saving time saving issue because I can

Pros

This software replaced a cheap messaging program we used internally. It allows us to communicate desk to desk without having to leave an office which now that Covid is limiting mobility, this works well. I am able to select a couple of computers that are support staff and create a team message so I don't have to repeat the message to them separately. Something I just discovered is that this is a cloud...

Cons

I would like to be able to have distinctive sounds assigned to specific computers so that when a message comes from a particular computer, there is a recognizable sound that I've assigned to that computer and I know then who it is from. The program minimizes and if I'm interviewing a tax client, I don't want to break the interview to review the message if I suspect it isn't immediately important.

Flock - easy-to-use solution for team collaboration.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We've tried Skype as our team communication app, it was good, but faced with advertisements, and we kept on receiving spam from hacked accounts, no integration as well so Flock is a better option. 1. 5 integrations in Flock for their free plan. 2. Group video calls. 3. Affordable than its competitor.

Cons

I like Skype's new redesign better than Flock's current UI. Their interface a bit too complicated for us. A little bit slow.

Flock

Reviewed a year ago

We are a construction company that uses this for our field techs to load pictures and we have had no problems, whenever I have had to contact flock which was twice, they were able to handle what I needed at that time, I would highly recommend this software. (still looking for in expensive software to use with my techs on sending work orders)

Pros

Our main purpose for using flock is being able to share pictures.

Cons

There is only 1 thing I would say is cons, when contacting flock it is sometimes hard to understand what they are saying due to they have a different accent the usa does. I would recommend a search bar for finding older pictures.

We Chose as an Alternative to Slack

Reviewed a year ago

As we are all working remotely now, Flock is especially useful for everything from early morning check-in to quick sharing of files.

Pros

Having used Slack with several organizations, I was familiar with the benefits of a direct real-time communications platform tailored to enhance work activities. In choosing for our small company, we found Flock to be a better alternative both cost-wise and overall look and feel. The ability to bring in guests on specific projects without adding to our baseline use cost was a key recommender for us. The integration with Google Docs is very good. Flock also seems to be a more customer-focused independent company, rather than a large public corporation (and even larger now) that will be driven by how much more rent it can charge across its customer base, which is a personal pet peeve of mine.

Cons

Some of the audio/video features need to be better integrated. The video conferencing still seems a bit buggy compared to other platforms, so we don't rely on Flock for that service.

Works for start-up | Good Alternative of Slack

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The beauty of this product is providing the exact same feature with unlimited integration which directly enables a path for startup guys. Some stage we don't want to spend money but we want a good stuff for the team, and that point this helps a lot. The feature which is enabled till the day is really awesome. Having a bunch of integration helps to keep tracking the status. Let's say your build stats, your social media stats (Having Facebook, twitter etc), your DevOps notification which is free of cost.

Cons

Team can work on UI as some time I get confused. Flock is now having ample of feature it's high time if they can plan for UI enhancement. Recently I have seen they enabled password earlier it was OTP based. OTP was good for verifying account but asking every time doesn't help to user.

An Excellent Team Communications and Utility Tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

Flock has quickly become a single hub for a lot of my daily work.

Pros

Prior to using Flock, our team was on slack which handled communications well. But what Flock brought to the table was more. In addition to the features that Slack has, Flock also has a calendar app, note taking app (which works with individuals, channels and myself, a feature which I really like), tasks app, drive app which I felt adds a lot of value to the product, and makes it a central hub for a lot of my daily activities. They have also recently added a feature that enables you to have repeated processes setup, bringing in automation into the platform. I think they're doing really well in the space that are in and hope they continue to keep innovating while keeping their users in mind.

Cons

They don't have enough integrations (like Invision). They also don't seem to have an easy way to export all data (Slack has this). A dark theme for Flock would be great.
