What's up Producthunt? 👽 This is my first launch on Producthunt, let me give some more information about my product: ⚡️ What is it? Workmode is a (progressive) web application. The goal of this app is to help the user find the best place to work from, depending on the location or search query of the user. 🤔The problem I made this app while traveling and working in Southeast Asia. During my travels, there were moments of frustrations looking for a good place to work with a solid download speed. When I finally found a cool cafe and bought my latte, the first thing I would do is test the internet speed. There's nothing worse than sitting in a cool coffee shop with your MacBook open, ready for work to find out the download speed is 80 Kbps. Finding a good workplace with a solid download and upload speed in some areas of the world can be tough. Out of this frustration I created Workmode. The initial idea of Workmode is to crowdsource the download speed of workplaces from all over the world, one speed test at a time. In addition to the internet speed, a questionnaire is also shown in order to review the workability of a workplace. The speedtest and questionnaire results are saved and shown to users when they are close by or do a search for the region where the workplace is located. ⚙️ How does it work? When the user opens the application, the system checks if the geolocation is accurate and if any workplaces are nearby. If this is the case, the system will show the workplaces that are available for testing. When no places can be found or when the accuracy is below par, a general speedtest will be executed without the data being saved to the server. General information about the listed workplaces is sourced from Google and Foursquare. This information is merged with the crowdsourced data that is submitted by the users of Workmode. Tech stack: NGINX, Node Express, JS and HTML. 🎉 Any comments, tips, and suggestions are MORE than welcome! Thanks a lot, guys.
@frizurd tested the site from the coffeeshop I am in, worked like a charm.🎉
No place have been found near me 😞(I'm currently in the center of Paris) and the search input doesn't seem to work ?

@victor_baudot That's not good at all 💀Did you test it on a desktop or mobile and what browser did you use?
@frizurd oh I just re-tested it and now it works well! Don't know what was wrong before
Just tested it. Amazing! Just had a problem of going all the way to a co-working space only to find out it was closed.
A lot of coffee shops around me. Should I apply one?
