I was enjoying it except for one thing, which made me stop using it. In the free version, when you open the window after leaving it in the background for a while, it makes you wait 10 seconds before using it, with a nag that tells you to subscribe to the paid version. This got annoying fast, since I just wanted to use it for basic messaging on a few services.

I switched over to Rambox a couple weeks ago, which does everything that Franz does but without the nag. Much better

The developer guy is not very talented programmer and constantly updating app with minor version which breaks the all loaded webapps so you need to login all of them again. You can just use random browser this app doesn't give huge benefits.

More polished then most of the alternatives out there (Rambox, Station, Wavebox). One inexplicably missing feature and the primary reason I'm still using Wavebox is navigational shortcuts (e.g. alt+left arrow & alt+right arrow).

Great except some of the services (Steam/Skype) require login everytime you start Franz whilst others (Whatsapp) don't.

It's okay, but you can't tear out a tab and make put it into a new window.

So no grouping things logically.

I've been using this app over 1 year now. Both in win and mac os. It saves a lot of time from jumping between apps. It replaces other apps for me like Slack, Skype, Messenger, WhatsApp, Discord... Only problem is with voice calls because they do not work properly with every clients in Franz. So when I need to take voice, I need still to use separated apps :( But still this is one of the best and simplest app for messaging!
