    "Having to travel abroad for extended periods for work, I decided to rent my home out and make a little extra cash. This app is so easy to use and vert potential renters. You can add pictures and information with ease and even the transactions. "

    "I recently completed a year studying abroad. Before leaving I wanted to begin a job search to maintain an income while overseas. As an international business major I thought it would be useful to gain work experience in a different culture. I had a difficult time finding a reliable source for job postings for someone in my position - this app was not the solution. It had limited job listings outside of the US, and those that were listed were mostly out of date. I would not recommend this app for those looking for work abroad."

    "A good website to post/look for remote employment options. Of course, most postings are related to software development, web design etc, however, there are also marketing, customer support jobs. The number of job postings is quite large, I liked the design as well. It would be a good idea to bookmark We Work Remotely."

    "This app is great. It provides you with a constant warning if prices are going up or down on flights. You can really feel like you are getting a good deal, but they took the bar graph and buried it. This was one of the best features! It makes it easy to see it right there laid out in a graph so you can easily compare, but with the newest version you can't see it. I love the app, but would prefer to see it laid out in graph form. They need to bring this back to the forefront and it will be perfect."

    "This app is alright as far as bare bones translation goes, but I wouldn't recommend it as your only resource. The grammar can be a bit skewed if you plan on translating whole sentences, so remember to keep that in mind while using it."

    "While I was staying in Barcelona, I had a hard time finding a steady job. I started working as an Uber driver through the Uber app. After about a month as a driver, I was able to maintain a steady income and easily pay for my flat each month. I highly suggest rather working abroad, or anything for that matter signing up as an Uber driver."
