    • Very similar concept. Rambox is also open-source and supports more applications. syntaxFeb 2017 • 8 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Similar to Franz but badge notifications are quite confusing. Guest • Apr 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Rambox has similar concept like Franz and has more services than Franz which makes it extremely cool. However, Rambox is still too raw - it forgets your configuration when you try to restore from backup and when you have more than 25 services then you just do not see more than 25 and navigating between them is uncomfortable. edmundlaugassonJul 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very similar to Franz. Same base (Electron) and same concept (multi tabbed window with separate sessions). But Rambox is very immature and raw in design UI details, notification, user experience, so now I prefer to stay at Franz. michalcianiaSep 2017 Disagree   Agree
