Horizon is on the App Store

horizon-logoIt’s been quite awhile (July of 2014 to be exact) since we’ve updated this blog, but I wanted to share the fact that our newest undertaking, Horizon, is now on the app store.

Horizon is couchsurfing/airbnb within friends, friends of friends, and communities you belong to (such Peace Corps, Sigma Phi Epsilon, or Kiva). There is a giveback angle allowing travelers to thank their hosts by making a donation to charity (either the host’s favorite charity, or the organization that facilitated the stay).

You can either download it on an iPhone or iPad from THIS LINK or use the web app HERE.

Shifting Gears – Horizon

You may have noticed the updates have been a bit slow these days here at Oh Hey World. There’s a reason for that.

We’re shifting gears.

Over the past 6 or 8 months, we’ve been validating a new hospitality exchange app, which we’ve recently named Horizon.

It’s our 2nd attempt at solving the rampant missed connections problem that exists for every traveler. We’re headed to Santiago (Chile) for the Start-up Chile program, and will be working on the app from there for 6 months. Unlike location sharing, finding a free or cheap place to stay for your next trip is a massive pain point for virtually all 200 million millenial travelers.

As a reminder, Oh Hey World is completely open source (code can be found here). It will remain operational for its existing user base, and we have no plans right now to shut it down.
