Much more user friendly than the last app!
This app is great to use. Sometimes it’s a little slow to load, but otherwise fine.
My only issue is not being able to differentiate the sits. As you have to pick the same rate for everything. On most nannying agencies or babysitting companies you would not pay the same rate for school runs, as a sit in the house, or an outdoor excursion, or late/overnight sit. It would be helpful to have these categories when booking or accepting a sit to help sitters and parents have a service that matches the traditional nannying and babysitting models. Sometimes I’m forced not to accept a sit that are overnight or involves going out because it simply is not viable cost wise, or I would be out of pocket or drastically underpaid.
Having said that the families I’ve sat for are really friendly and welcoming, and I’ve enjoyed most of my sits... just think the aforementioned is an area needed for development.
Great app! Great sitters!
I’ve used the app a few times to find a babysitter and have always had a great experience.
The app itself is easy to use. Choose the date and time of your required sit. Sitters apply for the job. You choose which sitter you like the sound of/hourly rate of. You get their phone no from an email confirmation so you can confirm things directly with the sitter. They turn up at required time and place. And they take over while you work/go out/whatever. At the end of the session you pay them through the app too, and it pays them to the penny for their time so no awkward scrabbling around trying to work out what you owe or looking for change 😉. Simple and effective.
The sitters tend to be fantastic. I say tend to be, as of 5 sitters I’ve booked, 1 did not turn up at all 🤬, 1 was an average personality and preferred talking to me than playing with my kid, and 3 we’re so tremendous I would move them in.
Brilliantly convenient but now CHARGE SITTERS to use!
I was a huge fan of bubble, as it’s incredibly convenient and I think what we’ve all been looking for in an app for mums and babysitters. It’s a great way of connecting with families and building up a work profile, and for me I love the ability to be spontaneous and flexible which the app greatly enables. HOWEVER, I’ve been incredibly disappointed with their recent decision to charge babysitters- I understand they are a business however there is no other ‘agency’ that charges the sitter/nanny, parents are happy to pay for the service, but I am not happy to pay to work, especially as we don’t get paid travel. It should be the investors who should be approached to help out financially and not the babysitters- you don’t pay to work in other professions and I feel this was an unfair and poor decision by the app. They did send an explanatory email however I do feel it will cause parents and sitters to come off the app after meeting and book jobs privately.
