This app has been easy to use to find occasional or one-time sitters who end up being available to babysit again! They all have been pleasant and trustworthy! This app has allowed my hubs and I to go on date nights. I got last minute (literally) sitters from this app. I've probably poste dat least 7 jobs and got different sitters for different occasions. Some I've remained in contact with. Now I have 4 different sitters I can contact when we need help.

Very misleading app. It allows you to post a job looking for a sitter with a free basic account, but the only way you can get in touch with applicants is to pay the $45 a month fee for premium. Even then none of the sitters have current background checks & you have to pay extra every time you want to run one. We live in a major metro area & had only one applicant for a very flexible job. They also make it so you cannot cancel the mandatory auto renewal in the actual app itself.

App doesn't work, I lost track how many times I have reinstalled it over the months ! You are able to use the website perfectly from a PC, definitely not on a App. App poorly made. My phone is a new galaxy and its up to date so no its not the update. I can see from many reviews talking about the same thing about the app not working and still haven't cared to fix it!

Thanks for posting your review! I'm sorry to see about your disappointment with the Sittercity mobile app. At this time, our app is more of a companion to our full website, but we are working to update it as fast as possible. Please feel free to reach out to our customer service team if you need any additional assistance.
