Just downloaded the app, logged into my account, then navigated to a city. I see the icons for hosts, but when I click one then click “full profile” it tells me I’m offline. I am connected to WiFi, and I have strong cell reception. Tried messing with settings in the app and nothing seemed to fix it.
Wow. I haven’t used this app in a long time so I didn’t know how it had changed. I think it’s fine to charge a little per a month for cyclists to help keep this app up. But I’m trying to be a HOST in a very popular long haul cycling area where there are like no hosts and it’s just not organized for hosts. And cuz it’s so focused on getting money out of people that if you are trying to be a HOST it doesn’t remember you marked host and ALWAYS cycles you back to the GIVE US MONEY page. So frustrating. Make this easier for hosts.
I live the app and am so happy to see it is now available for my iPhone. I’ve been a long time user of the Warmshowers website and using the site on the phone can be difficult at times. With the app, I just open it, it finds my current location and I can see all of the hosts around me! I even get pop up notifications if someone sends me a message. Very cool!
Unfortunately I did not have good luck with this app. It runs supper slow and locks up every time I try to use it. I’ve tried to contact the help desk to no avail.
Like all things in life I’m sure it will take a few tries to work out all the bugs through updates but I love the layout and functionality of this app. I can’t wait to use it once I get back on the road after this whole covid thing is over. I know this has been a long time coming and y’all nailed it! Great work!
Skip the app, use the website for free.
