add a Linux desktop app
mirroring the features of the is OSX app
You can create your own Linux app with the help of the Chrome browser. Simply install the Flowdock web app (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/flowdock/ecfaiclpokecdjgdbnoogehobmmgalah?hl=en) and create an application shortcut with the help of these instructions: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95710?hl=en
Chrome web apps are bing discontinued. https://developers.chrome.com/apps/migration
An official native linux app would be appreciated.
Thank you Omid, I'm giving your app a try today.
I created a linux app for myself using electron / nativefier. It's on github, tested on Ubuntu 16.04
we need linux support, and it should be simple to use electron as a engine, Problems with chrome browser app: that notifications are broken, instead of native, chrome notifications are shown which is a pain, also if my main browser firefox and someone sent a link in flowdock, the link opens in chrome instead my default browser.

Linux support +1
This would be good for everyone! Please make it happen. I'm sure it would not be an issue using something like Electron
Please add this native app, the current work around of using Chrome web app, is not good enough.
Otherwise Flowdock is pretty good. We're planning to use it for our whole team.
Many users (including me) don't have chrome and don't want to have it, I want a native client to have something fast and chome is heavy, bulky and not integrated well a true native linux app would be great
Similar situation. Our company is trying to decide between Slack, Hipchat, and Flowdock. Slack has an unofficial linux client, ScudCloud. Hipchat has a native linux app. But we haven't been able to find a native solution on linux for Flowdock. Is it in the works?

It would be great to have an app similar to one on the OS X. We use Linux extensively, and of course Flowdock. An application shortcut is good, but a native app would be awesome.
well, advantage of a native app would be native notifications!
hmm… but just tried and see, that the integration is much better than several months ago. So maybe it's actually enough.
But the same argument then would be also valid for Windows and Mac ;)
That's right. But it does not really feel the same :)
