Description
This is a Dedicated Windows client for Slack, with the ability to be minimized to the tray.  Inspired by DC User app103.  Slack lacked a dedicated Windows application, so I was asked to build one.  After fighting with Gecko and WebKit for Visual Studio and failing, I found a way to get it working (Slack does not work with IE).

Currently in Pre-Alpha so may contain bugs/errors and missing features.

Features
• Easily connect directly to your Slack Domain.
• Minimize To System Tray (To keep it out of the way).
• Links within the app open in your default browser so the app is NEVER directed away from Slack.com
• Status Bar:  See what links you are about to visit when you hover the mouse over them.
• Show/Hide Balloon Tip on Minimize.
• Remember the last Slack domain used, in the text box.
• Stores Cookies/Web-Sessions/Cache Locally Within The SlackyApp folder.

Planned Features
• Progress Bar: Gives you an indication that things are actually loading.
• Click Here To Submit Feature Requests

Context Menu:



Downloading
Sometimes you may face an issue when downloading the installer and see the following:


Simply press the "Keep" button (Chrome) - Other browser may also have a complain about it, but there will always be a way to install it anyway!

Usage
Installation
Run the installer and follow instructions. (Follow the video below for help if you need it):



Updating
SlackyApp uses a lightweight version of DCUpdater to check for file version changes.  Simply right click the notification icon (Near your clock) and click "Update" or run Update.exe within the application folder.

Windows 8/8.1 users may get moaned at by the Operating System by a means of a large green bar across your screen telling you that I am an evil evil person that wants to steal your children and eat your pets and because I didn't pay Microsoft to recognize me as a real developer...then the Software I have made is probably completely messed up and will do stupid things to your computer.  Putting it simply...it lies...this Software will do NOTHING bad...I install NO extras into the software...no bundled toolbars, no adware, no malware, no spyware, no viruses, no keyloggers, no homepage changes, no changes to your search provider, no nag screens....the ONLY thing you will get, it SlackyApp...which does ONLY what it says on the feature list here.

I am fully open and transparent about everything I do and if you have any problems, then let me know ASAP.

Using the Application
Open and use - very simple interface.

Uninstallation
Run the Uninstaller

Known Issues
• If large amounts of data are passing through Slack at any one time (IE: Oeruse of the Giphy Integration), Window will go blank due to a possible memory leak - Bug has not been identified fully but I am aware of this happening.
• Cache and Memory not being cleared properly. - Resolution for this has been (hopefully) identified and will be resolved in the next build.

Testing out the pre-alpha, I'd have to say it's coming along quite nicely.  :)

Deozaan:
Slack looks interesting, but I don't really know what I'd use it for. I was going to sign up so I could try it out, but it asks for a company name.

I don't want to sign up as a company. I want to sign up as an individual.

Personally I had never heard of Slack before making this...and the only real reason I have an account there is for the purposes of this Software...for company name I just put my own, it worked fine @Deo :)

Ditto. I hadn't heard of it until you started making this. :D
