Fleep

A flexible messenger for team communication and file sharing

4.7/5 (32 reviews)

Fleep Overview

Fleep is a flexible messenger app and collaborative communication solution designed to be used by teams and project groups involving any combination of participants. Open to those inside and outside of an organization, any Fleep user can converse with another. Fleep integrates with any email client to allow contact connectivity even before signup and also the sending / receiving of emails from within the app itself. Aside from supporting team chats, project communications or simple one-to-one conversations, Fleep also stores and share associated files or assets. Fleep's file drawer feature gathers documents or photos into a convenient side tab alongside each conversation, while the "pinboard" also attaches editable messages, links, contacts and notes etc to corresponding threads. Presence features also aid cohesive collaboration by indicating user activity with real time status updates for online availability, message reading and reply writing.

Fleep has broad integration capabilities with third party tools and services, including that of appear.in for deeper discussion. Extending predominantly text-based conversations, the platform also allows audio or video calls to be placed at a button click with invited participants to join via link. Beyond integrations with Trello, Dropbox, Slack, Google Drive, IFTTT and more, the platform's reach can be widened thanks to the availability of a public API. In addition to multi-platform support for Mac, Windows and Linux, Fleep includes native mobile apps for Android and iOS devices for responsive remote accessibility.

Fleep compared to Slack and others

Used Daily for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/02/04
Review Source: Capterra

Actually, most people around me uses Slack (without any comparative evaluation with other chat services including Fleep). So I have to use Fleep relying somewhat on Slack integration.

But I love this elegant service so much using for communication, mail replacement, jotting, note-taking and sharing, bookmarking, simple task management, and more.

Pros

What have been impressing me the most in Fleep are:

(1) Elegant and carefully-chosen, minimal in some sense, design and features, opposed to a luxurious "everything-you-want" style, although I know the latter attracts most people.

(2) Thorough integration of chats and mails, not just something like mail notification of a new message. In-house communication could be replaced with chats, but correspondence with customers and clients still heavily relies on mails.

Some reviews say Fleep enables an in-house team to work with outside people with chat/mail integration. True, but there must be more. We could enjoy team communication and customer correspondence in a single place.

Cons

What Slack excels above Fleep, in my humble thought, is its publicity, and the number and variety of integratable services.

Clean set of well-thought features

I'm using Fleep as an ad hoc teamwork tool for the courses I give. I'm just sharing the ideas, links, and code snippets during the lectures. Often the discussions keep going after the main event. I'm also following some discussions on other platforms though Fleep. The Fleep provides me convenient tracking of message threads.

Pros

Fleep's way of integrating simple task management into a discussion has an interesting logic. One can capture the tasks during a discussion and keeping the thread of messages going on. This approach represents very well a real-life scenario of task identification. The idea is built into clean user-interface working on multiple platforms.

Cons

The main problem of Fleep is that it is not as widely used as Skype or Slack. The teamwork features of Fleep make often sense when used by a group of people. It is hard to attract new users on a communication platform in the world of a whole rainbow of chat tools. Fortunately, Fleep supports many integrations that allow to be a rare Fleep user in a team.

Excellent rapidly developing chat service

Outstanding user experience, excellent and quick customer service :)

Pros

- New features being added frequently, the features implemented are also easy to use and it's easy to just intuitively start using them
- Very easy to use and intuitive application in general
- Works great on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and in the browser!
- Visually gorgeous and easy to under

Cons

- Unfortunately there is no on-premise option, meaning we can't use it at my workplace anymore, however, I still use it for private non-work-related chats.
- Weird sound glitch that plays all the notification sounds in a row when connecting a new audio device, this has not been fixed over the course of the past 2 years unfortunately.
- Some rare with notification delivery possibly related to syncing between devices. (This is very rare, maybe once a quarter)

Great for small teams

Fleep works great for intra company chat, but lacks some features that bigger companies might need.

Pros

Fleep is simple and easy to use. It is not cluttered with unneeded features, works fast and realiably.

Cons

Since Fleep is smaller and newer than other apps it lacks some integrations, but that is not a dealbreaker and usually, workarounds can be found.
Also there is no option to combine teams from different company in the same chat.

Response from Fleep

Thanks for the review! Just wanted to note that in fact it is possible to have teams from different companies in the same chat.

To do that, first add someone from the other company's team to the conversation, and they can then add their team to the same conversation.

Please do get touch with us at [email protected], if you'd like more detailed guidance.

One of my clients asked me to join fleep for their workflow, and I am not disappointed when using it. It's simple and minimalistic features are just up to the mark. For a simple consultation, it is really very very easy to work with.

Pros

I like the simple UI and how fast I can start connecting to users.
I really like the group discussion feature. The UI is not different so for my contacts it is one fewer thing to learn.
Sharing with gdrive is a plus. Now as I am signed up with Gmail and it is easy to share email. The default space is 10 GB and with gdrive, it is total 15 of space which is massive.
The simple task manager and task assigned is helpful when doing some pre-website design collaboration.
Right bar with all the option available is a really nice feature, all options are quickly available.
All the shared documents are listed in the file drawer, assign a task to the member is better than just posting a task and no one has no idea what to do with it.
Android app is available which is another plus point for this app.

Cons

Pinned notes are really not pinned. It just scrolls with the conversion which is a bad Idea. There must be a spot where pinned notes are available quickly, hope they include this in the next version.
For video conferencing, it uses another service which is not that common.

Response from Fleep

Hey Debjit!

Thanks for the review. Just wanted to comment that there are fixed Pinboards as well, in every conversation. There, all pinned messages are shown and 'fixed', separate from the conversation flow. See the first screenshot here: https://fleep.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201491571-What-are-Pinboards-

All the best!
