As featured recently in WIRED magazine:
Whether you travel for business or pleasure, you’re always at risk of being attacked by bed bugs. Bed bugs can be anywhere, from the swankiest hotels to roadside motels. This app makes it super simple to inspect a room in 30 seconds. The app comes with a visual guide which shows you where to look. The app uses the phone’s built in flashlight, camera and zoom lens to help you inspect the areas where bed bugs can hide.
If you find something suspicious, just take a photo and compare your photo against a built in library of bed bug eggs, and adult bed bugs. Using this app is just like having a pest management professional with you, helping you screen a room before you stay in it.
This is a must have app for travellers or anyone concerned about being exposed to bed bugs or bringing them home.
Ratings and Reviews
Works as described. I think it needs a better set of pictures to compare though. Not sure I will use it much, but if I traveled more maybe.
It’s an infomercials app. Don’t border.
The app basically tries to sell you their pest control product - nothing more. All the tips on how and where to check Bed Bugs are things seasoned traveler already knew about. Nothing particular will make you want to keep the app. I uninstalled it right away.
When I open the app, all I get is a black screen. Opened it several times to no avail.
