A New App Can Help You Find a Place to Work on the Road
A free service lets entrepreneurs on the move find a quiet, professional space to get some work done.
What do you get when America's great commercial real estate buildup collides with America's great corporate downsizing? A lot of vacant office space. Now it's time to put those empty buildings back to work.
That's the aim of a new free iPhone app called LiquidSpace, which launched in San Francisco this spring after debuting at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas.
LiquidSpace is designed to help mobile workers find a spot where they can temporarily plug in and get work done more effectively than in the back of a cab, a loud convention center hall or the narrow space between other airline passengers' elbows. Using the location-aware LiquidSpace app, users find available workspaces nearby that meet timing needs and other requirements they specify. Spaces on the app are classified as "public" (libraries, Starbucks, etc.), "priced" (buildings that rent office space by the hour or house shared-workspace firms) and "private" (companies with empty offices they're willing to share with partners or customers who happen to be in the neighborhood).
