The BedKin app is proof that there really is an app for everything. BedKin is designed to make it easier to manage and coordinate the visiting of friends from out of town. In the app you can list your house and its amenities as well as chat with friends who are coming to visit. You can even invite friends to stay via text, and they can check out your place and all it has to offer all from within the BedKin app.
What makes the BedKin app different from AirBnB and other homeshare apps is that no money changes hands and the interactions only involve friends or acquaintances. Some might say calling a friend or texting them about visiting is easier. That's true, but the BedKin app offers that and manages the logistics and scheduling as well. BedKin is out now for both Android and iOS.
