Sitterati: A Brand New App for Parents and Sitters

I love my kids, but sometimes we parents need a night out. Finding and arranging reliable babysitting is often the most stressful part of leaving the kids. In this day and age there's got to be an app to help us parents out, right?  Pull out your smart phones because guess what, there is {jump for joy!}

Sitterati is a brand new app that helps you find, contact, schedule, and pay your sitters. Don't worry, I'll explain the steps. 

First, download the app and plug in your information. You can add your all your sitters directly to the app- it's like having big contact list of your sitters all in one place. Once your sitter accepts the request to join, sitters can accept babysitting jobs from people they know, keep track of the jobs they have agreed to do, and even get paid for jobs right through the app. Once friends within your social network download Sitterati, they can share their sitters on the app as well. This will give you all access to a bigger list of sitters available in your area. 

Need a Sitter for Saturday night? No problem, just post the job and send it to all your sitters at once. It's easy to book right from the app! Just enter information such as date, start time, end time, details, and sitter rate. If a sitter would like to accept the job they can respond through the app and confirm the job. So much easier than having to make multiple phone calls or texts. 

My favorite feature of Sitterati is that you can automatically PAY your sitters through the app with your credit card. No more running to the ATM for cash and NO awkward exchanges of money!

You are lucky to be the very first people to learn about and get to try this brand new app. So Sitterati wants to hear from you! Once you have tried the app, they would love your feedback. They want to make this a truly useful and beneficial app for both the parents and sitters. So if you've tried it and liked it or see ways to improve it, the Sitterati team wants to know.

Hope you enjoy this new app & cheers to more date nights!
