Voice from team

StayFree is my favourite project so far. Started as a small app for adding private spots on a map a grew up to be one of the best vanlife apps used by thousands of people. 

Creating new features, adding new content and polishing the UI  is even more fulfilling, knowing that it will have a great impact on how and where people spend time in their campers.
