Great concept, great app I have met so many interesting people through Couch Surfing! In addition, I've saved so much on accommodations! The app is easy to use. The only drawback I know of is that email alerts don't work with Yahoo mail, and there seems to be no hurry to fix this.
Serendipity A friend suggested that I try couchsurfing when she knew I was doing some solo travelling. Only lately have I realized that she's actually referring to this app. I stumbled upon this app later on due to a research I'm doing but got hooked to using it instead. Haven't tried actual couchsurfing yet though. Another thing added to my bucketlist.
On the surface awesome, but actually lacking No bugs at all, the design is clear and appealing, but it's annoying as hell. You can't access the sidebar from anywhere but the home screen (seriously, I want to check my inbox, but instead I have this useless back button)! Also, you can't save messages as drafts. Use the mobile compatible website instead. Devs, I really want to love this app. Please hid to my critique
Love CS, but the app needs to be improved Points of improvement: -No notifications, so I need to open the app and refresh messages to know -Groups are not in the app -can't search for hosts in a country, only cities. Besides that most things are very good :)
Missing discussion I downloaded the app because I wanted to participate in discussions and answering questions easily (in mobile site it has some bugs). But turns out it is not included in the app... I need a complete app, this is totaly insufficient. Also the UX is bad, I did not orientate well in the left menu. Please redesign and complete the app, it has a lot of flaws.
This is just the beginning I don't know what the alternative to such a big service can be. You get people who help you in every possible way and you have the security of others having stayed with them from the comments left by previous hosts/guests.
