We’ve all been there before… you book a night out with your significant other / girlfriends / book club ladies, then the babysitter cancels with only a day’s notice. What to do?


Now, instead of frantically calling all your friends and begging them to divulge their babysitter’s info, there’s BookJane! It’s the new mobile app that helps you find caregivers for your loved ones, on demand and in your area*.

Here’s how it works:

  • Download the app (free on iOS/Android)
  • Create an account or login via Facebook or Google
  • Search for a caregiver that suits your needs (filter by credentials, reviews, languages, years of experience, etc). You can even chat with potential caregivers through the built-in chat feature, set up a time for a phone call, Skype interview or in-person meeting
  • Book! (You’re required to add credit card information before booking.)
  • You can even track your caregiver while on the job through BookJane’s location tracker for peace of mind  (How awesome is that?)
