WHA by Work Hard Anywhere - WiFi Cafes and Spaces

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
As freelancers, one of the most frustrating things we deal with is the process of finding a decent work space when we’re on the run or in a foreign city.
Often times, we show up to a cafe that seems promising for the work day, yet the wifi is virtually unusable, or there is nowhere to plug in. With your help, we hope to solve this conundrum. Rate the internet speed, the work space size, and more.
Made by Freelancers for Freelancers to help get work done.

Hard to use. Was a contributor but not any more
The app makes it hard to contribute, which only cause problems for themselves. Usability problems: buttons are too small for tapping. Secondly, if I want to rate a cafe which has no wifi, I can't. Some cafes give out wifi codes for one device at a time, so I wasn't able to rate a cafe without connecting to it on my phone (even though I'm connected on laptop). Thirdly, the flow to add a cafe is very bad. There's no auto searching, means there's more taps than necessary. Finally, comments are hidden so you might as well not reply comments. Even though this app tried to reward users with gamification, but the usability problems stopped me from contributing. Instead of 1 star, I gave 2 stars to give some credits to the generous creatives who contributed. But the developer seems to not care about the usability of the app.
The best app for finding places to get things done
This app tells you if cafes have power, fast internet and other deets. It would be great if they also indicated if the bathrooms are gendered or not. It works pretty flawlessly in populated urban areas. If tried it in SF and New Orleans and there is no shortage of spots. They make it really easy to add new places as well.
