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.
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.
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

Ratings and Reviews
Loved it, better than expected
Over the last couple weeks since I downloaded it, I wasn't sure what kind of value I'd get from using it. The demo provided gave me some great ideas initially.
So I began using the app for some work uses, mainly as a prospecting tool. I used the recording feature, verified the clarity of the voice message, and simply clicked 'do.'
The results I received via email were better than expected. Instead of me spending time scouring the Internet for businesses in certain zip codes, within as little as 15 minutes one time, I got an Excel file in better format than I could've even asked for. I was impressed. I have used the app for this purpose quite a few times, and each time have received perfect results! There's no doubt that this will be a proven money maker as it is sure to make prospecting easier and more efficient.
I look forward to using this app more!
Didn't know what to do with it
At first I didn't know what to do with the app. But then I started to find all sorts of uses.
When I travel I normally do a lot of research, but I asked the "please doers" to do it for a recent trip, and the results were excellent.
I took a picture of my white board and they converted it to a word doc in only ten minutes, with the drawings and everything.
I even asked them to find a tweed jacket, in my size, at a local store. And they found one within the hour.
Very professional and fast too!
I have a very busy company and needed some tasks done urgently. This company not only finished their task in a timely manner but VERY VERY FAST! They're detailed and very friendly.
I would like to see a "prettier" app because I do feel it looks kinda old but don't let that scare you away they're very good at what they do!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
