Home and general services can be easily purchased through apps available for Android and iPhone (iOS). Platforms that offer this convenience can simplify the relationship between client and professional through functionality that streamlines tasks for both parties. For the client, for example, it is possible to analyze professional profiles that detail their activities and present recommendations from previous clients. Another possibility is to receive quotes from different people and negotiate with them about the final value of the service.
The choice of professionals recommended by applications is generally judicious. References from previous work, criminal background, face-to-face training and evaluations of other clients are part of the process that approves the admission of professionals in the apps. Platforms, therefore, not only offer the option of hiring a service for the user, but also of advertising their own work. The following is a list of the main diarist applications and general services listed by TechTudo.
