app functionality could be better
The system to find childcare is great but the app functionality isn’t. It shows a notification for a new message but then you have to pull down/refresh to actually see a new message. Spell check doesn’t work (I have an Apple 11) on initial messages but it does work on subsequent responses. It’s clear from reading profiles/bios that spell check doesn’t work on job posts or profiles either. Also, if you’re in a search and get out to message someone and go back in, the search reloads and you lose your place. And if you click “message” on someone in a search, it doesn’t show if you’ve already messaged them or any conversation history until you go in through the messages section. It’s certainly a great resource for finding people but functionality could really use some finesse.
This app is definitely not worth what they charge. It’s not super user friendly and will force quit often. Even when you pay for a subscription that doesn’t actually pay for the background checks, that’s extra. It also costs extra to manage payments and any tax information you need for a caregiver. What does the subscription get you, just the chance to see the profiles and message potential caregivers in your area. The messaging system is garbage, you would think it would be just like texting except you can’t place the cursor anywhere to edit, you have to delete everything you wrote to get to where you want to edit. You also can’t see everything you type. You can see maybe one sentence until it disappears and you just hope you typed everything correctly. If there aren’t very many caregivers in your area your subscription is extremely useless. The notification system also takes forever. If I received a message from a potential caregiver I probably won’t be notified for an entire day, unless I’m physically opening the app and checking the messages. My final complaint is that I am not able to clear the filters I first put into the app to find caregivers. There is a button that you should be able to click that says “clear all” to reset your search filter, however, it doesn’t actually work, much like everything else on the app. Super don’t recommend this app.
Great but not reliable
She is soooo good with kids. Was amazing with my infant. I was so happy I had finally found someone that knew how to handle this age and. Someone I could trust and rely on. The first week she was booked she came for the week but canceled the last day which was Friday. Said she was sick. Okay no problem. Canceled the morning of. I rescheduled my day. I reconfirmed she was still coming the next week. Yes. I reached out on Saturday to reconfirm again (I’m used to people canceling on me). No response until the day after. She had a family emergency , won’t be able to come Monday but will for sure be there the rest of the week. Ok no problem. She has already given me heads up about that possibility. I reached out Monday morning to reconfirm the rest of the week. Completely ghosted me. After many texts and calls Monday came and went. Nothing. Not even an acknowledgment. I was left with no childcare and had to cancel my day. Again. I finally heard back Tuesday. She had a family emergency and just couldn’t respond. Ok I understand emergencies. I expressed my understanding. But I heard nothing from her after that. Was she still coming the rest of the week?? Was she ever coming again? Nope. Guess not. Never ever heard back from her and it left me with no childcare for the week. Such a shame cause she is really good.
