If you’ve not yet heard about Slack then you should take a look. The com­pany says it’s, “on a mission to make your work­ing life sim­pler, more pleas­ant and more pro­duc­tive” and with the re­lease of Slack it has been true to its bold words.

In a nut­shell, Slack has a pow­er­ful and ex­ten­si­ble plat­form that helps man­age projects and teams by keep­ing all your files, mes­sages and doc­u­ments in one place.

The soft­ware en­ables teams to col­lab­o­rate across iOS de­vices, the new Mac app and as web apps for other plat­forms. There’s dozens of fea­tures too – from voice and video mes­sage ser­vice in­te­gra­tion to project and task man­age­ment, to file shar­ing, Drop­box, Twit­ter, Google ser­vices in­te­gra­tion and more.

One thing it does es­pe­cially well is mak­ing it clear who is work­ing on what. In use, any user can cre­ate chan­nels for projects, groups or top­ics and par­tic­i­pants can ex­change files, mes­sages, com­ments, images, video.

Slack also of­fers a no­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem to let you know if any­one men­tions a word or phrase. You gain com­plete his­tory and search ca­pa­bil­i­ties within each chan­nel so it’s easy to find that in a par­tic­u­lar mes­sage or item.

Slack is sim­ply one of the best and most in­tu­itive team or project col­lab­o­ra­tion so­lu­tions we’ve seen yet.

Best of all, Slack’s ded­i­cated Mac app in­te­grates with OS X’s No­ti­fi­ca­tions sys­tem, so you never miss an im­por­tant item.
