Review from A Google User
Still not very functionall Theres no messages system, no searching by the map, no searching by couch for more than one person, no access to groups, no giving refferences. It's just a tiny addition to the website. For the money community donates to the corporation it could be done much better. But at least it is some effort.
Slow and tedious
Great Idea. Needs Work. I love the idea of couch surfing and I like the direction it's going with events and hangouts and I have been able to find hosts, go to events, and hangout with people through the app which is good. However, I did have to make many requests (30+) to eventually find a host. Most requests were declined without a ln explanation. The events are a good idea and I have had good experience with them. The hangouts need work though. I've joined many hangouts woth people who ultimately didn't want to meet up at all.
Love the site, app needs work The app does not deliver messages to me even when I have a strong internet connection. I have missed multiple messages by a few days while traveling and had to pay for hotel rooms, just to find out I had 4+ messages but the app wouldn't show them to me. If you are stuck and need a place to stay I would suggest checking your email for responses. Other than that I enjoy the app :) I also wish you could join groups with the app
The idea of couchsurfing is excellent. The application needs some improvements, but all in all it's useful and user friendly. The praxis in terms of finding a host looks a bit different. It's sometimes annoying to write plenty of requests and even don't get an answer. So, I think registered members should take the idea of CS a bit more serious.
Can't get hosts, hangouts has weirdos Lots of weirdos requesting to hang out who themselves are not available to hang out. Not sure how they pulled that off. Then they don't want to do the activity but want to "chat." Also, nobody accepts my couch requests so the whole premise of this site is useless to me. But through posting a trip, I did make a friend who showed me the city and that was a very good thing.
Great app The app is really easy to use and includes all the important things. The only trouble I have is that new messages don't just show up. I have missed a few messages and requests because I didn't know about the "refresh" option. Once I hit the refresh button, several unseen messages and requests showed up in my inbox... Other than that, no troubles and really easy app!
