Last week I was invited to try out the Bidvine app for size and I have to say I am really glad I did. Bidvine is perhaps one of the most handy apps that have been released in a while, I’m confident I’ll be using it again.
The idea behind the app is that you find people who can do jobs for you, quickly and easily. I had a look for photographers, because I’ve always liked the idea of having professional shots done for the blog – but you can basically look for almost anything you need. Put in what you’re looking for (it guides you through with handy sections and sub categories), the area you are and how much you want to pay and wait for bids to come in.
You can practically look for anything on the app – photographers, cleaners, handy men, creative people and much more. It’s a London based app but it’s extending throughout the rest of the UK – I had no problems getting answers to my query based up in the Midlands, so they must be expanding pretty well!
I got a text message within an hour of signing up to tell me someone had sent a bid for the kind of job I needed – which was pretty impressive as it was around 6:30pm by the time I got round to signing up. The replies I got were really thorough with lots of information, so I can imagine that when it comes to hiring someone for you what you need the decision is made as easy as hassle-free as possible.
I have to say I found the app really easy to use which is a massive bonus for me. I love ordering stuff online but when an app is fiddly or time consuming I quickly lose interest. What I also liked is that you can message people who have sent you bids and ask any questions you have before you choose to book them for an app, and that has to be a good thing!
What would you search Bidvine for if you were going to use it?
