Slack for Mac 3.3.8
Bring team communication together, within one app, using Slack

Being an entrepreneur is most people's dream. Getting started and organised makes it tough to launch your own business. It's made worse when you try and work with potential business partners, long distance.

How do we then ensure we can work effectively together? There are many tools becoming available for us to be able to efficiently work together remotely and online. One of these tools is Slack.

Slack enables you to collaborate with your colleagues, especially when you’re on the move. You download the app and you can access various channels, DM’s and get notifications when there are important messages for you to see, which means you can jump into communication when you’re needed and not at other times. Slack integrates with several external services as well.

Using Slack, you’ll be able to keep all your communication in one place, with real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams. You basically have all your team’s communication available in one place and you can easily search through all communication on the go. Need an answer to a previous question asked by another team member? Slack might have it archived.

Overall, it is extremely useful to have that access available for you, however, it comes at a price, and usually, when there are enterprise solutions, this is not cheap. Luckily, Slack has a free option, but you can only make audio and video calls between two people and no groups, and there is a limit of 5GB for uploads across the entire team, nowhere near enough even for the smallest team.

Slack Standard removes many of these restrictions and increases the allowance to 10Gb per person, and with Slack Plus, you get everything Standard has and 20GB storage per person 24/7 support as well, and you can easily provision and de-provision users. The price for Standard is 8$ per month per person or $80 per year, and Plus is $150 per person per year or 15$ a month. 

What's new in 3.3.8 (see release notes for more)?

- When you sign in, you'll now sign in through the browser rather than within the app.
- We've fixed the tray icon to make the notification badge easier to see, because, let's face it, if you can't see a notification, it's not really doing its job.
- Switching from one channel to another will now give the correct name and information of the new one, rather than the old one, as was previously happening.
- The new loading animation was a little stretched, or a little squished, depending on how you looked at it. It's now practically perfect.
- A few icons in menus went missing on Windows 10, and have now been retrieved.
- Occasionally, the "Open the Slack App" browser button was not opening the workspace in the desktop app. 
- If you use SSO (Single Sign-on) to log in, it should now work perfectly every time.

Verdict:

Extremely useful for centralizing your work communication on the go. But it can get expensive if you have a smaller budget or a larger team.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.30

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.30 

• Adding contacts using WhatsApp is now easier. You can enter a phone number and check if it's on WhatsApp before saving it. Tap "New Chat" > "New Contact" to get started.
