Don't just take our word for it, see what our customers have to say:

  • Increase Active Users "Users who download our desktop app are more active than our existing users and we've reduced our churn rate as a result."

    Michael Fitzgerald
    Co-Founder of Interplay
  • Less Cluttered "Dropping the URL bar makes our UI look much cleaner and less cluttered. It makes it easier for our customers to keep the app open all day and not get lost in a sea of tabs."

    Joe Lennon
    CTO of Workvivo
  • Native Look and Feel "Having that ‘installed’, native feel is important to our users. It gives them confidence that our app is solid."
