Review from A Google User
This is a joke. I use web-based one Long as the web-based account works like charm on my phone why should I be bothered giving permission to have this little thing explore my Phone data? Uninstalled
I love couchsurfing ... But the app just lacks some of the features the website has which makes it impossible to use sometimes: one is that you can't tick whether or not you're flexible on your arrival and departure days. That one can be bypassed by just saying so in the message. The other one is much more annoying: once you messaged someone or cancelled your request once (to change the dates) - there is no button that will let you send another request. So then you can't use the app anymore but have to go to the website.
Hangout feature is so useful, but could be improved The new hangout feature is an indispensable tool, especially for solo travellers. However, the sending and receiving of messages is a bit slow and clunky, so it's not quite 5 stars yet.
Problems with messages sync Messages are not synchronised on the app when using my mailbox (Gmail). Or the app doesn't send messages correctly. Otherwise it's good to look for hosts.
Excellent I wish the push notifications were a bit more intrusive (most might not like that idea but where can I tune it?) and why not fuse the dashboard and messages in one clear page? Aside from this, excellent app and concept, giving opportunities to all! :)
Not fixed!!!!! Hangout is not working! Location problem!!! GPS is on and still not working We tried it on few devices, Same problem!!!
The bomb diggity Couch surfing and it's community has saved my skin a couple of times, and just made me some global friends other times. The app itself works great, but really I'd like to extend my gratitude to all those out there that are opening their doors and company to weary travellers and future friends!
