Further stability tweaks to make managing your listing and your travels as easy as possible.
Ok App, Extremely poor customer service
The app was easy to install and you're immediately able to view lots of really great properties. If you get as far as actually wanting to rent one for a quick trip though be prepared to give out all kinds of information, more than any other entity with the exception of the day I bought my home and the mortgage company needed the same. In any case I decided to go ahead and quickly ran into an issue at checkout with an error stating the app was experiencing technical issues and I couldn't reserve the property I wanted. I hit the button a few times not realizing the app was actually processing my request despite the error stating it was not going through. This ended with my account being suspended for suspicious activity. I emails airbnb support with no response and finally found a phone number to call for help. There is no ETA for issue resolution if you have a problem. I'm supposed to get a call back ... someday. Ultimately it wasn't worth the trouble to download the app and enter in my life's details for this. I'd suggest going with a reputable hotel and skip the hassle.
Poor navigation, some big bugs and terrible implementation
I have been an Airbnb user for the past 6 months on a weekly basis, so I use this app every day. It's unbelievably poorly designed and executed for a software company of that size. The app takes forever to load, then crashes randomly. When it eventually runs, it has some major inconsistencies with the website, e.g the calendar doesn't match for some rentals!
Things that's should be displayed prominently are not; one has to dig around to find crucial info like the home address. The navigation should be very simple but it has been made unnecessarily complicated. That's a major issue when you're on the road abroad with no connection and all you have to navigate is the Airbnb email. The app should be able to work offline with cached data!
Love AirBnB but....
I love AirBnB, but I miss the older version of the app where it included different categories of places you could rent....for example if I wanted to rent a treehouse or a boathouse or something else outside of your typical house/private room. Now it just goes by one big list after you select what place you want to go to, so it seems like the only way you can stumble upon an "out of the ordinary" place to rent is by luck.
I also think there should be a minimum in terms of the amount of pictures of the accommodations. Some places that are financially appealing to us budget travelers literally only give you one or two pictures of the room and the rest is left to the imagination.
