Chatwee has a clean and easy to use UI. On the left there's a clean and defined user list, each name has a flag next to it. It's also very easy to move from one side of the screen to the other. There's only the most useful information on the screen at any time and the design never feel overwhelming or cluttered. See More
Although IMO has a comparable, and in some cases superior, feature set when compared to the competition its key selling point is its interface. From LifeHacker when it won "Best IM Client": Signing on, navigating chats by tapping the tabs at the bottom, searching for buddies, and virtually any other operation is easy to find and use. The app, itself, is very quick. Even sending a voice IM, if you don't feel like typing, is responsive and sends quickly. Everything imo does it does well, but it's excellent navigation really makes it top notch. IMO also has a fully functional website that you can use for chat while on your desktop or laptop. This really puts IMO ahead of the competition as you can use the same system on all your devices so you don't have to deal with overlapping notifications etc. (Note: IM+ also has this feature) It should also be noted that it has the highest rating in the App Store due to both the UI and its stability.

If you are worried about third-parties getting access to your data you should consider self-hosting. With self-hosting you are in control over where your data is stored, who has access to it. You will also not be vulnerable to exploits of a third-party provider. Trillian supports both cloud hosting and a self-hosted Trillian Server. See More
Moving a team or organization to flock does not require any setup from the company's IT team. At max, what might be required would be to whitelist their domain in case the organization's IT team has gotten external domains blocked. You can simply download Flock and invite others in your organization by using their email ids in order to start collaborating. That's all there is in the name of setup. See More
There are multiple options like slash commands, message buttons, chat buttons, attachment picker etc., where the integrations can surface inside the native app. This greatly eases the discoverability of a integration, making it really easy for the team members to find and use the integrations.

There is clearly a User Experience issue esp. in web version which the developers are aware of and are working hard to improve. They've got the concept concrete, so UX won't be an issue in no time. Most often used parts are functional, but some are yet not. The success of riot depends on how fast the development is, or it'll get outdated too quickly as developers of Signal and Telegram have predicted. See More
