WHY HIRE A WYNDY?
All potential Wyndys must apply online. As part of the application process, Wyndy verifies the sitter’s college enrollment at a Wyndy-approved school and requires the sitter to pass a background check. Additionally, sitters must provide information about their academic performance and babysitting experience before being accepted as Wyndys.

Ratings and Reviews
Good, not great.
A lot of the bugs have been fixed. I’d love it if you could filter out the reoccurring jobs on the main board (the jobs that parents post for the same days every week, indefinitely), or if there was something on the post indicating that it’s a repeating job. I’m usually just looking for a one-time job, and these posts can make it a little hard to find. I’d also like if you could talk to parents before you book. It’s just nice to know whose house you’re agreeing to go to before you actually accept the job. Haven’t had any bad encounters, but you never know. I’ve talked to a lot of parents that feel the same way.
The app still has a lot of bugs for how long it’s been out. It crashes, or shows the wrong address/parent info if you’ve clicked on too many jobs without closing the app out. It also has become very very hard to get jobs, plus the average pay rate has gone down drastically. Also, there are jobs available that are more than 30 minutes away from Samford, which just isn’t realistic. I have been able to meet great families on the app, which I love, but I’d prefer repeat jobs and you don’t get a lot of that on the app.

Good but could improve
I wish I could give 3 1/2 stars. I love the ability to try to find babysitters when this can be a difficult task. I have used the app successfully once. However I hate the fact that we cannot communicate with a Wyndy or have any contact info until after they are booked, because there are some sitters who look like they would be great for the job but they decline perhaps because they are not available. I would like still like to be able to reach out to that person to find out about their future availability and also just to ask questions about their experience etc. to see if they are a good fit. But if they decline the job there is no way to do that unless I post another job in the hopes that they can book. And I don't want to have tons of different people to babysit my child I would like to find someone on a semi-regular basis. If there were some sort of inbox system in the app like there is with Airbnb that would be great. Also it seems like it would be a good system for parents and sitters to post a short paragraph/bio of some sort. To summarize I am very grateful for apps like this but I think it could be greatly improved.
We love Wyndy, such a lifesaver!
Having Wyndy as a babysitter resource has been awesome. The platform is easy to navigate and view the profiles for the sitters. In our time using the app we have come to love specific Wyndys and now typically reach out to them first when we need someone, however if they're unavailable it's easy to post a job to the public board and within minutes I have multiple people offering themselves for the job. I then can go through all their profiles and see a little bit of who they are, how many sitting jobs they've done through the app previously, their average rating, etc. Now that Wyndy has expanded to so many different metro areas, I'm looking forward to the future possibility of being able to book a Wyndy in another network when we're traveling in that area (wink wink nudge nudge, please do this because it would be AMAZING).
