The new design is great. Took a while to be finally refreshed, but the latest version is less bulky/heavy than before. It may not be perfect or as full featured as Google G Suite, but it's the only product that feels designed for mobile *and* web/desktop.
Quip is hands down my #1 favorite tool. We rarely use email at all because most discussions happen on Slack or Quip.
Pros: Simplicity is awesome. It's important to treat People and Documents as first class entities in a document (or just as links). Embedded code formatting and highlighting works well enough (funny but so many products don't get this right). I wanted to give Notion a try (mad impressive!) but just its complexity didn't feel right (and they are more expensive).
Cons: this is a very competitive space and many popular options are free. I've recommended Quip to endless people and many still find the $10/person/month price expensive.
- Can't import from markdown (not just export to markdown)
- Can't keep code color when exporting to other formats or printing.
- There's a way to do markdown-style table, not excel-style table.
Easy to connect collaboration with Chat, and helpful for driving transparency. Beyond that though it can be a massive distraction to have docs and chat integrated, and tough to prioritize information and chat simultaneously
