Dear members of Warmshowers and other non-profit hospitality exchange services,
I can code Java and SQL and would like to learn develloping an App. Warmshowers App is the best hospitality exchange App now and was very helpful during my travel. Even the big couchsurfing does not have a good map search function.
Ok. I am very inspired by a healthy non-profit motivation for running hospitality exchange services. The way Couchsurfing went appears unethical to me. The idea to make money on hospex is faulty.
Horizon App is considered to connect many hospitality exchange services. BUT, this thing is for-profit.
What am I thinking about now? Warmshowers App is the only non-profit hospex App on the market now. But, Warmshowers is not the only non-profit hospex service. So! I suggest to include the databases of other non-profit hospex services into Warmshowers App. It is a Win-Win for everybody. Cyclists from Warmshowers get more hosts to easily access from the App using smartphones. Hosts from other hospex services get more guests and more choice.
Who are the other hospex databases? Bewelcome.org, Trustroots.org and so on.
