Apps you should have in your mobile phone if you telework in the Canary Islands

We present an overview of some mobile apps any remote worker in the Canary Islands should install

Every destination has its own particularities and understanding how they work can be overwhelming at times. In this article we review some of the most interesting mobile apps that can help improve remote workers’ knowledge of all the teleworking options and the communities linked to remote working, or take full advantage of the leisure, culture and sport alternatives the Canary Islands offer.


The Canary Islands currently offer a wide variety of infrastructures and services for remote workers. One of the most usual options is the choice of a coworking space, the places designed to cover all the needs of a remote worker during their working day: offices, high-speed Internet connection, meeting rooms, etc…

In this case, the app Workfrom in its Android version can be extremely useful. It is one of the most popular platforms for finding work spaces in over 1,200 cities. And the website is an aggregator with more than 25,000 coworking spaces and meeting rooms all over the world.   


One of the best opportunities presented by remote working is connecting to communities of similar people, sharing knowledge and experiences, and – why not? – planning activities together in order to get to know the destination you are in better. There are several apps available that can help you integrate into remote worker communities on the Canary Islands archipelago, such as:

Slack: this is one of the best-known communication and management tools for remote workers. On their website, you can find an interesting guide to setting up a virtual office using their multiple resources, which is extremely useful for anyone enjoying the advantages of remote working in the Canary Islands.

Diginomads app: this tool facilitates connection with other remote workers who have similar professional interests and goals. It also allows you to join themed chat rooms and develop collaboration opportunities that could potentially become business opportunities.

Meet up: on the market for over 20 years now, this is one of the most relevant applications for meeting people, making friends, seeking support, developing businesses and exploring interests. This tool enables you to join events in almost any field all over the world, and you can also find contacts or start groups of people who share interests. It has a simple search engine that functions by cities and topics.

Facebook: although this app is not exclusively for remote workers, it is a very useful one to have installed, as numerous remote worker groups use it. In fact, on the archipelago of the Canary Islands there are currently several remote worker communities that are very active, with groups they have created on this social network.

If you are looking for something a little more global, we simply have to mention Digital Nomads Around the World, a Facebook community of over 155,000 remote workers from all around the world where - naturally - we will find entrepreneurs who are already partaking of the excellences and advantages of the Canary Islands.

Some other interesting options for remote workers hoping to enjoy the Canary Islands’ unbeatable working conditions are:

Web3 Island Makers, the first decentralised autonomous organisation for Web3 entrepreneurs, designers, programmers, marketers and product managers who are constructing the future of the Internet. They are established in Tenerife.

Punta App: with this app, one can create a digital nomad profile with upcoming travel plans, favourite photos, description and interests, and also find other digital nomads with similar interests, chat with them and exchange stories. 

World Packers: this app is heavily geared towards volunteering, which can be a remote worker’s gateway to destinations like the Canary Islands’ archipelago. It is a community with over 9 years of history, upwards of 160,000 reviews and hosts in more than 140 countries. 


The excellent climate and different landscapes mean the Canary Islands are a region well worth exploring for any remote worker. There are several apps that can help with this venture, and we highlight the ones below:


Use this application to check diverse information of interest on nearby beaches, such as:


  • Flag colour
  • Weather conditions.
  • Location.
  • Number of people.

Skylinewebcams an interesting website that is connected to numerous webcams all over the world. In the case of the Canary Islands’ archipelago, this portal makes it easy for one to find out in real time which are the busiest areas on the islands, such as beaches, ports, avenues or other places of interest. It also allows one to check sea or weather conditions before going to the beach, for example, or whether there are any traffic jams in the city.

It isn’t exactly an app, but the website works perfectly on mobile devices.


Windguru is a service specialising in weather forecasts, and is used in particular for practising open-air sports, by windsurfers, surfers, kitesurfers, paddle surfers and people engaging in other types of sports, such as fishing or sailing.

Windguru informs you of the wind and wave forecast for almost anywhere in the world, as well as the direction, period, temperature and probability of rain. It will also help you with forecast details on undertow, tides and currents.


Installing certain mobile apps can really help any remote worker who comes to the Canary Islands to adapt, delivering first-hand knowledge of all the opportunities the archipelago offers.
