LaunchLab Company, Sxuirrel – SA’s First Peer-to-Peer Storage App Now Available on Android

LaunchLab’s mission is to facilitate valuable connections between startups and corporates, as well as other relevant business partners to help those startups be successful. One of these success has been LaunchLab company, Sxuirrel – who recently launched their free mobile app who likes to refer to themselves as the Air Bnb of storage – has announced that along with their iOS app, the app is now also available for Android devices.


Completely unique to the South African market, Sxuirrel helps connect people who need space with people who have space to offer through a simple-to-use app. Through the app, Sxuirrel’s developers have created a peer-to-peer market place that brings together hosts and guests from within a community, to create local, unique and flexible space finding solutions. The iOS version has been available to Apple users since 2017 and the Android version is now available for download from the Playstore.


“This is our first version of the Android app, even though the iOS app has been live for some time. As developers we have done our best to produce the best possible app but we will be doing regular updates based on the user feedback that we receive. Sxuirrel is built on the concept of community and so we invite all our users to rate and comment on the app so that we can work towards the best possible product,” says Michael-John Dippenaar, Sxuirrel’s Chief Executive.


“We’re extremely excited to be launching the much anticipated Android app as we believe this will not only provide our current users with a better overall experience when using the Sxuirrel platform, but we’re opening doors for the community through complete platform diversification, (iOS, web and Android) to connect instantly, and either find space which was previously unavailable, or turn unused space into cash.”


Sxuirrel allows users to list three types of space: storage space, parking space – and soon to be added eventing space in the form of venues. The incentive that Sxuirrel offers to the users with extra space to offer is the opportunity to turn space into an income stream. Anyone with extra space in their home or garage, unused parking and eventing space (coming soon) can register on the app and list your space for a fee. Those who need it will find your listing when searching for storage space on the app. There is no sign-up or listing fee and Sxuirrel only takes a small percentage-based commission on transactions.


The app allow users to search through the listings based on location, after which you can filter results according to price, size and additional features. “Our goal to provide users with flexibility through booking only the space you actually need – as opposed to the entire listing – and only for the duration you need, it,” Dippenaar explains.


Dippenaar says they have implemented extensive safety measures to ensure a safe and uncompromised user experience. “Our team monitors listings and interactions on the app for reports of harmful content with a built-in messaging system backed up by 24-hour support. The app also has a built in peer-to-peer review system and all payments are through the 3D-Secure platform. The team personally vets all hosts listed on the app as we aim to build a safe environment for users to organically and authentically engage with each other when advertising and seeking space. And, just to make sure that users are covered we also offer The Sxuirrel Guarantee which covers users should anything go wrong.”


The Sxuirrel app is available for free download on Google play or Apple iStore.
