Ratings and Reviews
I have found amazing volunteer opportunities with free accommodation, which have been great learning experiences. Very grateful for Workaway and would recommend it to any budget traveler or a person looking to gain more hands-on experience in a field they’re interested in!
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.
Could be good, but...
Unfortunately this app could be a great travel-networking app, but it ends up being just an exploitative experience.
Working five hours a day, five days a week, often leaves the traveler without much time to do anything that is fun. The exception is when you get a host particularly good at taking their workawayers for local hikes, events and to nearby attractions as part of the schedule. But most f the time its just a person or business who wants to get free labor and push you along out the door as soon as they aren't.
You have to really get a good host invested in making it a balanced experience, which in seven months of being a member and actively using the app, I've found 1 out of every 7 hosts actually are going to make it a good experience.
So be careful, rate often, and choose wisely.
