New App Helps Mobile Workers Find Their Ideal Work Space
Freelancers and Startup CEOs can find desks for a day or a month with the click of a button.
A space to relax and work can be a hard thing to come by in the city, especially if your apartment is small. Not to worry – a new app called Work+ uses satellite technology and a list of your workplace preferences (quiet, dog-friendly, ‘artful ambience'?) to explore your local area for spots to try.
A user can either search for a specific place name or fill out a survey to begin the process. You'll need to consider how long you'd like to work (the app will check your productivity afterward and record it), whether you need WiFi or food, if you're in a large group, and your beverage preferences (among other questions). After you're finished, you can rate the location or add it to your favorites.
