SLINGR is more than a simple application with a bot. We’re embarking on a journey to give Slack users perfect business automation, leaning on Slack as a primary interface. We’ll be adding features and integrations weekly based on feedback. Think of it like we’re crowd-sourcing our application features real time.

Yes, SLINGR works with the free Slack plan. We recommend that you spring for a paid plan, however, to take advantage of the inbound email features in Slack that will automatically create tasks in SLINGR. The time saved searching for that one thing you forgot to do in email is well worth it.

The secret sauce of SLINGR is that instead of just guessing about an app we might be able to sell you, we created a platform to support SLINGR. This makes it easy for us to update the application (at your request), add new features for everyone, and literally connect SLINGR to any application that will have us. (Some applications are hostile, mind you.)
