Chanty

Chanty is very good for networking messaging and low level collaboration between peers and colleagues. It's not great for video or voice calls or whiteboarding or file sharing.

Usability

Abstract

Abstract 7.0
Based on 1 answer
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Abstract

Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

I have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

Alternatives Considered

Abstract

I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.

Chanty

In terms of file sharing and speed of collaboration, I find that Slack is quicker and integration into Google Drive is very handy when it comes to working on documents, I have not seen Chanty do this. As for video Google Hangouts is as simple as it gets; again, I have not seen anything from Chanty in this area. I have also looked at and use https://guild.co/ which is much easier messaging and collaboration wise. The app and notification for Chanty is pretty good but it's loading time is slower compared to Slack and WhatsApp.
