My Main Source of Income


As an actor/singer primarily, flexibility in my day job is important. I’ve been using this app as a sitter for my main source of income when I am home for about 3 years now and it has been wonderful. I’ve met great families and the ability to do payment via credit through the app is so handy (plus it gives me a little control without having to awkwardly bring up payment in person.)

If you are a sitter who has some experience, just know that it may take a little time for the amount of work you get to be consistent. It’s always a little slow for me when I am just back in town, but with more reviews and such, it picks up fairly quickly.

Excellent service, horrible app


UrbanSitter has consistently allowed me to find high quality sitters, often on short notice. It has been essential to my survival and we have been satisfied with the babysitters - we have even found some sitters we really like and use regularly.

The app itself is designed horribly and has no workflows that make any sense. As a technology professional, I find the app very frustrating to use, but it is worth figuring out as the service itself is valuable. The website is just as bad so it is not unique to the app.

Great App for finding a sitter in a pinch


This app is great for finding a trustworthy babysitting candidate last minute. It's very useful when something unexpected comes up and no one is available to watch the child(s). It's also nice for finding a full-time caretaker if that's what you're looking for. It's very secure and offers the option to interview the babysitter prior to having them come over. Highly recommended app for any parent.
