@benguild @cafewifi Yes! While I often need a "place to work" when I'm out and about, it's much more likely that I'll know when I'm going to be WFH/WFC a couple of days ahead of it actually happening, and get to plan out where I'll park for a few hours. All of that happens on Desktop, so super happy to see the support there!

@benguild @cafewifi Sitting at Non solo bar in Stockholm, with my macbook and android. Could not add it. But it seems like a good initiative. Have been thinking about building something similar with AWS Lambda and Ionic.

Awesome work @benguild one thing - I would love to be able to add/update places via desktop, I'm more likely to connect to wifi at a cafe with my computer than phone. So adding details that way would make me a more regular user and contributor 👍

This is a great idea in theory, but unfortunately, it still depends on users uploading data. In my area (Fort Worth) there are zero cafes listed (they are all in Dallas). I wish there was something that didn't rely on users. Or something that ran in the background picking up WiFi networks you pass or something.

@ninjinka It's a work in progress. We're making it as easy as possible for people to add places using the app, which can automatically do a latency test on the Wi-Fi you're connected to after hitting "check in" on a place. Try it out! We're releasing an Android version soon.
