Awesome Website, Even Better App

WorkAway has become my key to traveling the world at a fraction of the cost that it would for most people. The site has been great to use, but the app is even cleaner and makes searching for hosts and navigating all the functions even smoother. Love it lotsa!!

Good, but.....

I have this app downloaded on my iPhone as well as my iPad Pro. My only critical feedback is that the App does not rotate from Portrait to Landscape with the rotation of the device. I am a vision impaired person and the ability to better see, type on my iPad is compromised by the lack of this particular feature.
Is this capability something that can be added? I would rate this at 5 stars if it was.

Must choose a Country?

From what I can tell, there’s no way to search without choosing a location. A significant bummer because I find my next destination by discovering great opportunities that match my interests. I’ve found myself in some pretty unexpected places this way, and been the better for it. I wish you could do a worldwide search based on skills, language, setting, etc. As it is, this app is pretty useless for me.
