Airbnb for iOS 7 - Update

We recently shipped a huge update to Airbnb for iOS 7 and Android. I'm excited to share some of the pieces that I worked on. Specifically, Groups.

We launched Groups to over 350,000 diverse Airbnb Hosts around the world. Our goal was to give hosts a platform to share insights, exchange tips, and connect with one another. Hosts can now create a group with a unique purpose (taxes in New York City, creating better guest experiences, tips for first-time hosts, etc) and run their own self-organized group.

Here's a real example of group purpose by a host, Steven, in Sydney:
"I love airbnb and strongly believe that together, by connecting with one another, we can make the experience for our guests, and ourselves, even better. If your are a host based in Sydney, this is the place to ask questions, share your insights, exchange tips and flourish as a host."

Huge shout out to the entire team, all of the mobile engineers, all of the community managers, and everyone who helped ship this!
