With this app, you can use all of the essential functions of the Stinngo Reservation Manager wherever you are: reviewing and responding to your incoming requests with predefined messages, checking the availability for the different rooms in your B&B and managing existing bookings.
Changes that have an effect on your accommodation's availability will be visible instantly on the calendars that you have published on your website, on the "A Place to Stay” directory and on other sites you’ve set up to synchronize with your Stinngo availability.
What's New in Version 1.4
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
This app has really great potential. It's down fall is the lack of the timeline view (like on the Stinngo website). It needs to show an "Overall Timeline" not just "Overall Calendar."
So this leads me to explain the inconsistency there is: currently you tap each room/unit and then a simple calendar displays for that room/unit then you tap each day in the calendar and it shows a list of bookings for that day at the bottom of the calendar. Nice for quick checking and updating details but not when I need to check all availabilities in a clear concise view. I could log into the Stenngo website but that defeats the purpose of having an app right? How court the development team skip an important feature?
The lack consistency creates logic that is a little awkward or cumbersome and seems like the devs took a shortcut. Better logic would have been to also add a timeline view (like on the Stengo website) so that the user can quickly see roomm/unit availability and who's checking in or out.
Because of that simple lacking feature, this expands like a bubble. I won't be signing up for the $150 service because the logic and GUI is inconsistent with the website. When it's updated and available, I'll use it. Until then, there is an app that does this for $15.99 in the App Store and it's a one time fee. $150 for a yearly service is already being undercut but this simple option.
