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.
Basically the app has been useless before this update. It looks and feels MUCH better to use. I suggest to add more functionality in the app...like vouching for friends for ex. & be able to easliy find other members. Also needs the ability to create events through the app!
Love the app very much but unfortunately it doesnt work properly on my xiaomi redmi 4. My inbox is not automatically updated, I got notification on my email but did not show up in the app. Could you please fix this problem? Thx
I can't see groups I'm member of..and the messages lag. it's more detail to check through the laptop I feel but definitely good enough to check for a quick update or couch requests
Even better than the website. It has some minor problems from time to time thou, but nothing serious.
Couchsurfing isn't what it used to be. There used to be forums and easy access groups, people making public events for all fellow travelers to attend, visits to friendly CSer houses, music jams, dinner nights... This app limits access to the group forums, hangouts is only good for last minute stuff, messages take hours to appear, it's difficult to get the word out on events you've created, hosts are harder to find without map search... I used to be able to post a question to a city group page and get dozens of answers, now I'm lucky to get one. I still use CS to meet travelers, to host, and to find hosts, but it's now just a travelers Facebook.
Limited profile edit options, and a strange decision to make the user have to manually refresh to see recent changes to requests and message threads, but otherwise fine.
