Now That You Can Work from Anywhere, Where To Go?

Because more and more company employees, independent contractors, consultants and startup founders have the tools to work from anywhere, there’s now an app to help them find the perfect places to go. 

It’s called Cubefree, a free app that helps you find cafes with WiFi, power outlets, parking and even a table to share. CubeFree shows a map view with nearby cafes, along with user ratings and comments, as well as others who have checked in.  

This perfectly complements the other tools the modern workforce uses to work portably: Virtual Desktops hosted in data centers, documents in cloud storage, mobile work apps on tablets. To power these, all that’s needed is a quiet place to sit, WiFi and power.

For many that means working from home if they are out of the office, but if you’re on the road or just want to escape the house or office, Cubefree may be the ticket. You can think of it as Yelp and Foursquare for mobile workers. In fact, the app includes thousands of locations based on Foursquare, plus users can submit new locations. 

There also are social aspects to Cubefree. Users can rate, comment, share a table, offer a coffee, or chat – all from the app.

Cubefree is the brainchild of Marta Guerra, a user experience designer at Citrix in Fort Lauderdale.

“Once you find a suitable location, you can see if other Cubefree users are there, and make connections that otherwise wouldn’t be possible within the confines of an office,” she says. 

“Share a table, offer a cup of coffee, or find a work buddy who can keep an eye on your things if you need to step out.”

If you want to escape your cube, the iPhone app is available now in the app store, plus Android or Windows phone users can use the HTML5 version at https://app.cubefreeapp.com/website/?

Chris Fleck is on the board of the South Florida Technology Alliance and vice president of mobility systems and alliances for Citrix Systems (NASDAQ: CTXS), a Fort Lauderdale company that provides secure remote access to data and applications.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
