In honor of the iOS 5 release and expanded memory, MEDL has set the majority of their app catalog FREE - For a limited time only!

Always find your home away from home.


CrashPad was created in MEDL Mobile's App Incubator. The idea was submitted by Charlie Saravia, an international traveler living in New York City.

Charlie thought the iPhone would be a great tool for connecting backpackers and other travelers with people who are willing to let overnight guests crash at their pad for a night or two.


CrashPad works to bring people together who can help each other out.

Countless people have a spare room or two with nobody there to enjoy them. Weary backpackers and tired travelers often go for days without the soothing relief of a comfy bed.

Put two and two together and what do you get? A fun and useful network that helps travelers connect with generous residents to find their next home away from home.


CrashPad allows you to search for host pads using your GPS location or the place you’re heading.

Crashers can rate the pads they've touched down at so future crashers can know what to expect.

This app allows you to list your residence, show photos and publish any rules of your home (bed time, phone call cutoff, check out time, etc…).

Hosts can rate their guests so that other pads will know what to expect from a certain crasher.


We hope you enjoy CrashPad and the many wonderful friendships and stories that are sure to follow. If you have a great CrashPad story, we'd love to hear it. E-mail them to [email protected]


Any contracts made through CrashPad are between the host pad and crasher. CrashPad's sole function is to bring the two parties together; MEDL Mobile and CrashPad are not accountable for any damages, theft or other consequences that might occur after.
Each party is responsible for ensuring the other is reliable and trustworthy.
CrashPad does not control who is using the service, and is not responsible for arrangements made available through the service. An agreement between crasher and pad provider should be made prior to arrival and CrashPad is not responsible for upholding the terms of these agreements.
CrashPad and MEDL Mobile are not responsible for any problems, issues, situations or circumstances that may result from any interactions between the crasher and pad host. Ratings provided by Crash Pad are the independent opinions of previous users and we take no responsibility for any opinions expressed.

We are proud to call CrashPad a Shiny MEDL Object. You can see all of them at And if you have an idea for an app that you’d like to see on the app store someday, visit
