Please.Do allows you to easily send instructions to a “Doer” – a real administrative assistant who could be anywhere in the world – for a fee of $.25 per minute of work-time for simple tasks. It’s a “Personal Assistant in Your Pocket.” It’s especially useful when you are on the run or when you are extremely busy and need to focus on more important things.

How it works:

Send us a photo or video of something and then tell us what to do – either by typing or saying the instructions. Your Doer will email you the results. We’ll give you an estimate and ask for your go-ahead first, unless the task is really tiny in which case we’ll just do it and then ask for payment.

Please.Do can:
Transcribe written notes – from a photo of your pad.
Create Outlook contacts – from photos of business cards
Do expense reports – from photos of receipts and a spoken description of the trip.
Do research – from a spoken request.
Enter records in a database – from a photo of a form.
Be creative.


Simple tasks will cost $0.25 per minute of work-time, including the time to coordinate. Let's say you take a picture of eight business cards and ask for Outlook contacts. If it takes five minutes, your cost would be $1.25. More complex tasks will cost more but will still be charged on a per minute basis.

What our beta testers have to say:

"I needed a helper to do the research I didn't have time to do myself, Please.Do got the task done while I slept." – Charles Johnson, Technology Expert

“Please.Do helped me through those times when my assistant was on leave. It’s definitely the best productivity app since it lets me stay focused on more important things instead of worrying if the restaurant kept my lunch meeting reservation or creating simple PowerPoint presentations.” - Dave West, CEO

“I love Please.Do! I asked them to create vector files of my sketches which I needed for a graphics project. I met my deadline with their help. Thank you guys for all!” – Andrea Mattos, Multimedia Graphics Expert

“Please.Do. Please do. Pleasedo. No matter how you write it or say it, they get stuff done (I needed them to look for these cute cake toppers that were so hard to find). I’m hooked to always turning to them when I hear myself saying ‘Please do this for me’.” –Amor de Castro, Busy Mom

"I was amazed by the response time of PleaseDo, they transcribed and emailed me my notes within an hour of submitting the Task - and there were no errors (even with my lousy handwriting). These guys are good. PleaseDo gets the job done!" - Charlie Mullaney, Student

Excellent Service!

I will separate out my review into three segments: initial impressions of the application, quality of services provided, and my eagerness to use the app again.

Initial Impression:

I am a small business owner and my fiancé recommended this app to me. After reading its summary, I thought to myself “Why not?” There was a minor issue with the initial demo (you must exit the app and reopen it to resume normal operation of the application). The user interface can use some “beautification”, but the general idea is simple and easy to follow along. Send the team a task and they will complete it! In the current state, I give the app a 2 out of 5 on initial impressions.

Quality of Service:

I asked the Please.Do team a relatively vague task to test the quality of their services. After assigning the task I received a verification email and proceeded with the transaction. I was quoted 20 minutes and they were spot on as far as delivery of the completed task.

I am incredibly impressed with how far the team went to complete the task. I could not have done a better job myself. I might have been able to compile the same list of items, but it would have taken me 3-4 times longer.

I give the app a 4 out of 5. The only thing I would change is having the email correspondence integrated into the app itself. I give the Please.Do team a 5 out of 5 on their quality and effort in completing the task.

Eagerness to Use Again:

I am incredibly excited to use this app. Time is incredibly important for a small business owner and I believe I will be able to use this app to improve my workflow and save me a ton of time! If you are a small business, I highly recommend you check this app out.

Cant get a response on task I added over a week ago

Just says it was submitted, but no response at all. It was a very simple task so I don’t get why it would not have been picked up and had a price quoted back to me yet. I just need someone to call dog groomers in the area and try to get a same day or a soon as possible dog grooming appt for my dog. You would think calling around trying to do that would be such an easy way to make a little money that it would have been answered within hours of my submitting it but that’s not the case. Which makes me wonder how often anyone’s tasks ever get a response and actually completed.....

A+ for adding contacts!

I recently attended a conference and used PleaseDo for the first time to manage new contacts.

I just snapped a photo of a business card, made a recorded note of the conversation and clicked on the Do button.
