It almost there, but no...
I am a Mac user that just about had it with Skype, desperately looking for an alternative. Wire seemed very similar, so I gave it a shot. Sadly, this is not the solution:
- The alert sounds are nice and high-tech, but way too gentle. My peers had trouble realizing they have been texted. Even the Ping is subtle. The app should offer alternative alert sounds.
- There is no “prescence” indicator. This is VITAL for any messaging service, as well as displaying when you are busy, or on break.
- Yes, if you type :) it will replace it with the actual emoji, but an emoji selector tool would be preferred. I am a businessman and a leader of the sales team here, and emojis are the pop culture of modern day communications. A single image says more that a thousand words…
I am hoping to come back to Wire in the future. It definitively has the potential. I hope the development team keeps improving. Cheers
Developer Response ,
we really appreciate your feedback.
We will share your feedback with the team!
Also you have the possibility to add emoji's with :tag - like :smile .
But we get your point!
Solid chat app with lots of features
Wire works well as a Skype replacement, and it has a few extra bells and whistles too. I enjoy the macOS and iOS versions.
However, there are a couple quirks with the macOS version:
- Sometimes a chat window gets a bit laggy/unresponsive when trying to scroll (selecting a different chat and then going back to the initial chat seems to fix this).
- The biggest annoyance for me is that there’s no way to customize the window, specifically the panel on the left that lists your chats/contacts. There should be a way to resize this panel, especially to shrink it down to just icons, because it takes up way too much space as it is. You can do this on other chat apps (e.g. Messages and Skype), and I would love to be able to do this on Wire too.
Keep up the great work!
Electron based desktop application
Please, please stop using this cancer of modern desktop — Electron, nobody needs a copy of a browser running for every application on the system. It's limited, it's resource intensive and it will never offer flexibility like real desktop applications written in Swift.
Regarding application UI:
- Can't collapse sidebar with contacts it takes lots of screen estate
- Can't rename a contact
- Message formatting in a chat is awful, won't support markdown, markup languages, etc. Can't even normally select text.
Swiss roots, Haskell and open source are a huge win for this project.
Would be paying for it if it gets somewhat closer to Telegram Desktop speed and UI...
