AskIH: Nomadlist for co-working at the cafe

Shun Yamada @shyamady

A half years ago, I have been working on an application called "Seatify ( )". This is a smartphone application like a community where users help each other to book a seat at the cafe, office, restaurant, anywhere. So you can book a seat through the customer, not the owner.

I have already quit 2 reasons. 1) Not too often, 2) Booking fee is so expensive for even $5. But today, I have an idea if it's a membership model like Nomadlist, that may work. I hope I can pay $10 monthly.

In addition, it helps users to give an opportunity to meet up with new tech people :) What do you think?

    I don't see why someone would want to rent a seat from a coffee shop to be honest. I just show up places are sit down.

      What app do you use for that?

    Not sure if the cafe owners are gonna be happy with this, especially because they tend to make much less money on the people that like to study/work at cafes ...

      Yeah, I have to solve this problem :(
