What's New in Version 2.1
Minor listing updates
The people saying it doesn't work are morons
This app relies on trades people actually signing up to the app. If there is no one in your area, it's not the app's fault - it means no tradies have signed up to the service. I've used the app 5 times now for quotes and it's worked perfectly. Sure, I live in Melbourne and there are plenty of plumbers and carpenters around, but the system works and it works well!
Hopefully as the company grows they will get more tradies on board and it will clear up these issues people are having. Thanks for a great service!
looks pretty but not much substance - poor resource
This app should never had been released until it had sufficient listings to be perceived as a valuable resource. At the moment it is heavily advertised as being the ants pants of an app, when all you get is suppliers/trades who are several hundreds of kms away. This only leads to dissapointment by visitors, due to the lack of suppliers/trades who have signed on. The cost of $600 for the premium listing is outrageous and no wonder there are minimal listings. This is the fault of the developers with this poorly thought of revenue model.
All looks pretty but not much substance in my opinion. If you want a resource like this, yellow pages beats it hands down.
Kill the advertising spend before you sink more bad money into a poorly conceived product.
Way over rated by TV hype
2013 - Total rubbish, no one has even bothered to respond to quote requests for work we need doing (and we are in the middle of Sydney) It's quicker and easier to just pick up the local paper, check the phone book or look on the Internet for tradies. The Block overly exaggerated this apps capabilities by receiving payment for advertising it on TV. The concept is good and it might work better if more trades people were on the App.
- January 2014, tried the App again to try to repair a burst water pipe in the backyard...result was a deafening silence in the response.
Complete waste of time and effort. Really dissapointing!
