Workaway mobile app

July 2015

 

Workaway.info is a travel community online which connects working volunteers with hosts around the world. 

11,000 hosts around the world offer accomodation & meals in exchange for volunteer work. Volunteers can have a cultural experience, get off the beaten track, learn new skills and meet people outside of their own community. 

 

Problem

The Workaway website was outdated and difficult to use on a mobile device. Many travellers now use mobile devices as their primary point of internet access while travelling.

  • 87% of travellers use mobile devices while travelling
  • 62% of 18 - 34 y/o travellers use a smartphone to research online before travelling or booking
