Zulip mobile app usability

Zulip is a communication software designed for teams to discuss code. It is a chat system with an interface that appears more like a social media site.

The app is organised with a threaded conversation view and can do private, one-on-one chats and broadcast messages. The app also has a robust feature of editing conversations that allows you to delete individual messages or entire conversations. Unlike Slack, Zulip does not have a desktop version. Still, it simultaneously syncs with the chat on the desktop, so any messages typed on the desktop are automatically synced to the mobile.

Users like:

  • Free Plan
  • Easy to Use
  • Effective Conversation Thread Algorithms

  • You receive notifications of important messages that were missed
  • Create To-Do lists for optimization and to ensure that you don’t miss anything important
  • To ensure that only your team or desired guests can see what is being discussed, only those invited can see the conversation

    • Awesome and open source! If one were to run into any problems, the community is very responsive and fast-acting.

    • There’s no ability to share anything from another app to it. Also video can’t be played directly. And the list of users I have chatted with disappear I have to search for the User again to write to him

    • One of the best tools for collaboration!

    • So buggy; it is completely unuseable.

    • Great on desktop, buggy on phone. Needs more feature control.
