Jobulator is the official companion to Aesop, created and supported by Frontline Technologies, the makers of Aesop. The mobile app is free with your Jobulator subscription.
Jobulator Mobile is not intended to be a competitive advantage in getting jobs, nor does it increase the number of available jobs for the user. It is intended to be a convenience tool that provides notification and easy acceptance of available jobs in Aesop while you’re away from your computer.

Helps a little, mostly torture
The functions are fine--notification sound/visual on lock screen, the app lets you see the gist of a job on its home screen, you have to click on it to know things like length of the job (end time, for example.) Easy to accept, and you can see a calendar of your jobs. The major problem I have with this: I would say that 75% of the time when I get a notification, there is no job there. I can be holding my phone, get a notification, unlock, refresh the app screen (I'll have left it open to be ready), and in those 10 seconds there is no job listed. I've also tried having the phone next to me while my computer is open, the Aesop page on a tab ready to go. I hear the notification and go to the tab (so, maybe 3 seconds?), and no job. Leaving the app on in the middle of the night, same thing--it can be 2 a.m. and there's no job when checking right away after a notification. How is this possible? Consistently? Makes me wonder about how the app really works...is there a delay, to jobs put out a "notification" when they already have someone specified? Does the app randomly send out notifications to make customers feel like it's worth it? Bottom line: it'll help you get a few jobs, and make you feel like you're missing tons for taking more than 2 seconds to get access.
Would give it a 0 star if it was an option. I went 2 years finding sub jobs on Aesop and found jobs everyday. Another sub told me to try jobulator, so I did. Thinking that jobulator was goinf to send me alerts when a job was available, I stopped checking the Aesop site here and there for jobs. I noticed I was not getting any job notifications, which was odd because I know sub jobs are often available. However, when I get notifications the job is no longer available. I was under the assumption that every time a teacher requested a sub request then jobulator would let me know, WRONG! I decided to test it next to the Aesop site. Well long and behold, I saw jobs on Aesop sitting around waiting to be picked up and yet Jobulator is not sending me an alert. I also noticed that when I did get a jobulator alert, it was after I watched the job sit for an average of 25 minutes. Now that explained why 99.9% of the time the job was already taken when jobulator sent the alert.
So save your money and don’t bother. I find that refreshing Aesop here and there gets me jobs. Jobulator sends you alerts after a job has already been taken or when it has been sitting there forever. Which means you can just check Aesop here and there and still get more jobs than paying Jobulator for nothing.

So many problems for substitutes
“It is not designed to be a competitive edge” is right in the description. It “may not” have been designed for that, but please know that it can be one.
It can also be a nightmare when trying to accept jobs. I have gotten a message that a job is no longer available and have been able to accept the job because I refused to concede that it was no longer available and kept clicking. A common numbers of tries is around seven, but I wanted to find out just how many times I would have to click one Saturday morning when I knew I was the only math substitute who should be seeing the job. Exactly 600 clicks later, it allowed me to accept the job. Convenient? Not really.
Now it has stopped syncing with my Apple Watch. That was a nice feature because, when it worked, I would get a silent notification. If I have my iPhone on silent mode now, the notification is just like all of the other notifications I get; so it is easy to miss them. I now keep my phone in normal mode, which means it might ring while I am in school.
The app has helped me get jobs I probably wouldn’t have gotten, so I will put up with the major inconveniences.
