UrbanSitter lets you find a babysitter in your neighborhood recommended by friends and other parents. Watch video profiles, read parent reviews, book a sitter for the night, and message them right from the app.

What is it about?

You need to find a reliable, safe sitter, and sitters need to find regular sitting jobs. What better way than an app to connect the two? UrbanSitter has lists of locally recommended sitters so you know that other people in your area have tried them out and found them to be good. Babysitters can rest easy knowing that the families they're working for aren't going to stiff them a fee or make their lives uncomfortable.

Why we love it

UrbanSitter offers an easy way to connect parents and babysitters.
