Franz allows you to add every service several times. This makes Franz the perfect tool to manage multiple business and private accounts at the same time. You can even use Facebook Messenger with five different accounts at once if some inexplicable reason urges you to do so.

love this application, however 2 concerns with glitches in google voice and slack. google voice doesn't push notifications anymore and always has to be reloaded to update, and slack constantly disconnects and has to be forced reconnected. hope these things get resolved in next update

I don't do subscription software. I would pay a lot for Franz, but I won't keep paying for it forever. I saw an alternative to this not too long ago, but I dismissed it because I already had Franz. Now that Franz gone subscription, I'd love someone to post what the alternative was!

I am loving this app. I have tried a lot of them and when you consider the functionality plus the fact it's free this one is a winner. Well done.

If they ever add iCloud Mail to this then it's a 10/10

While Franz works and works quite well, I had a weird experience with it. I was mass messaged while using the Telegram component with an account I had just created and only given to a handful of people. I could see other peoples handles and message them. I don't have the skills to go through the Franz source code but better to be safe than sorry.
