Citrix Labs releases Cubefree, a Citrix Experiment that helps mobile and remote workers find great places to work together beyond the cubicle. It is the first community targeting mobile and remote workers so that they can easily connect with and assist each other. Available on iOS in addition to a lightweight HTML 5 version, Cubefree uses Facebook and Parse to power many key parts of their app, from inviting new users to engaging existing users and more.
If you work remotely, then you know it’s not always easy finding a suitable place to work. The Cubefree app by Citrix Labs finds nearby cafes, libraries, and co-working spaces around the world. Before you go, you’ll know if there’s good Wi-Fi and parking, enough power outlets, and a low noise level.
Cubefree locates nearby cafes and co-working spaces around the world that you can use. Before you arrive, you can see what services and amenities are available. Does it have free Wi-Fi? Check! Are there electrical outlets available? Check! Is it usually crowded or noisy? You’ll know before you commit, thanks to reviews and comments written by other Cubefree users.
Once you find a suitable location, you can see if other Cubefree users are there, and make connections that otherwise wouldn’t be possible within the confines of an office. Share a table, offer a cup of coffee, or find a “work buddy” who can keep an eye on your table if you need to visit the coffee counter or restroom.
Whether you’re traveling for business or fun, or if your job requires you to be on the road frequently, Cubefree can help you find a place to plug in and charge your devices — and find a great coffee on the go.
