All you need to do is de­scribe what you need to get done and then TaskRab­bit will link you to some­one who will do your tasks on your be­half. The tasks range from the most me­nial – l ike run­ning your er­rands or wrap­ping gifts – to more in­ten­sive tasks like help­ing you move or plan­ning an event. Taskers sign up and are screened through what the app claims is an ex­ten­sive process, which in­cludes check­ing iden­ti­ties and crim­i­nal records. They also have to do an app-ori­en­ta­tion ses­sion. You then have the best taskers to choose from.
