  • Pros: 

    tells you which places have power outlets, which is awesome


    buggy map clicking

    I recommend this app more than any other. I travel about half of the year and often find myself working in cafes.

Portland represent! (I'm a native Oregonian) I could have used this in Memphis last week. I hunted through yelp to find a cafe that (1) had free wifi and (2) good atmosphere/seating. My biggest complaint with Yelp is that they rarely have good photos of the actual place. Eventually I found Tampa and Tap (great spot, they even have video games!) but Workfrom would have been far more useful. More people seem to be working remotely, doing "workactions." E.g. @tommoor sqwigggles around the world. ;) @darrenbuckner - a mobile app seems like the obvious best platform for something like this. Is that in the works? P.S. Philz on 399 Golden Gate Ave is my jam in SF.

Workfrom was built to help those of us who work from coffee shops and cafés find good places to set up shop based on the information we need. What's the WiFi actually like? Is there usually seating available? Do they have accessible power outlets? We're currently featuring Portland but we'll be in several cities soon. Seattle and San Francisco are leading in popular vote right now. I'd love to get some feedback and favorite places if you've got them!
