Work from the Road
Need to get some work done while you're on the road? Find yourself constantly on the hunt for reliable Wi-Fi, a quiet space or an illuminated "open" sign late at night? A new app helps travelers locate the best work-friendly spaces in destinations all over the world, making it easier to work while you're out of the office or on tour.
Workfrom maps coffee shops, cafes, bars and Wi-Fi locations in over 1,250 cities for you to turn into a mobile office. Users can prioritize their search fields to find spaces unique to their needs, listing factors including open hours, noise levels, access to power outlets and even natural light levels.
The app, launched in October 2016, is socially focused. In addition to scouting locations, it allows users to organize meetings or to participate in chats with community members. (Maybe you want some expert advice on local hotspots while you're in town?)
So far, Workfrom boasts over 5,000 sourced workspaces and 30,000 users worldwide.
