We are happy to announce that we have upgraded and rebranded our taskrabbit clone TaskSparrow as OnDemandHero. We decided this was the right step to take as now our taskrabbit clone script is capable of being used by any online tasks outsourcing marketplace. Based on our research and feedback from our clients we have also upgraded our ios/android apps and we have completely rewritten them from scratch. So lets discuss about some of the major changes that we have implemented in this update .
Chat Module has been entirely redesigned and rewritten from scratch. In Our old taskrabbit clone only after issuing tasks can a user chat with his/her tasker. We think this is good and our chat system still has this. In our old taskrabbit clone users or tasker’s have to go inside the task to chat with the respective tasker or user. Now we have a new chat dashboard just like in whatsapp or any other chat app. Users and tasker’s can view all the people they can and have talked with in the past.
Invite Friends system was a major missing point in our old taskrabbit clone script. But now it has been completely implemented into our system with all the bells and whistles. Users or tasker’s can invite their friends to become user’s/tasker’s. If any invited people signs up, then the invitee can receive a certain set number of points as reward for the sites growth. This is controlled by the admin through his/her control panel. The reward may be real cash or credits or a achievement badge that shows up in your profile.
Wallet system was a debatable miss in our old taskrabbit clone , as ours was a real time portal where the system will split the money between admin and tasker’s once the payment was made from the users end. This has reduced banking charges on admin’s side. But our clients has learned the cool features and the amount of control they get using a fully fledged wallet system. Our wallet system can be easily recharged from the ios/android app itself. Our wallet system is capable of both positive and negative transactions.
PayPal has been integrated into our new taskrabbit clone. Now users can recharge their wallet using paypal. They can also directly pay using paypal money. Admin and tasker’s can also get paid through paypal. We have followed an all in approach in case of this paypal payments add on. Some of our clients are a big fan of paypal. As they are able to raise disputes and protect their money. Going all in was the best decision we have made with regards to paypal payments add on.
Google Map based tasker search system is a huge addition to our taskrabbit clone. Rather than typing a location into a text box its much more friendly to navigate a google map and find all the tasker’s that are nearby to a particular location. Tasker’s will be displayed as icons in google map and users can select a tasker’s icon to view their full profile. We have also taken this chance to improve the users search by telling them how much time a tasker will take to reach the users destination. This has improved the overall usability of our application.
Social Login is needed in every application that has a login system. Its a simple necessity. It also greatly improves the usability of the taskrabbit clone and it also improves the speed at which new people can sign up into the system. We have chosen facebook as they have very nice developer sdk’s and also they are they number one most required social login’s from our clients. User’s can simply enter their facebook credentials and login . This feature has also been implemented in both our ios and android application’s.
Time & Availability Management has been entirely redesigned and rewritten from scratch on both web application and ios/android applications. Tasker’s can now easily choose their working hours and working days. Tasker’s can also add leave days using our calendar. Users can view this entire time and availability of tasker’s. Our system automatically omit’s these tasker unavailability and does not let user give a task to this respective tasker. This improves the versatility of our application.
We are constantly improving our applications using the feedback that we get back from our clients. In the next post iam gonna show you how we have changed our mobile ios/android taskrabbit clone app.
