Cooper helps TaskRabbit design new iPhone app for help with chores

TaskRabbit’s service connects people who want help with simple tasks—anything from walking the dog, standing in line at the DMV, or moving furniture—with “Rabbits,” a network of background-checked and pre-approved individuals who have the skills and time available to complete tasks.

TaskRabbit With a design ideal for mobile task posting, the app provides a simple, seamless process for securing extra help.

Cooper designers collaborated closely with developers at Pivotal and the TaskRabbit team to design a user experience specifically optimized for busy, on-the-go people, offering timely help for folks with unfinished errands or other tasks. With just a spin of the wheel and a few taps, the app enables a task to be posted on the TaskRabbit service network in a matter of seconds with minimal, if any, typing.

TaskRabbit, has more than 1,500 runners in San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, and Orange County fulfilling up to 3,000 tasks per month and they just opened the service in New York City.

Congratulations to the TaskRabbit team, as the new app release has been featured on Mashable, TechCrunch, and Forbes and has received great reviews.

Wow- TaskRabbit.com is wonderful! For the past days, I have been winritg means and ways on how to snowflake debts. One way is doing freelance jobs via sites like Vworker.com, Odesk.com, Freelancer.com and Elance.com. These sites offer jobs that can be done on remote basis. I'm just amazed that TaskRabbit.com includes services such as shopping, fixing things and the likes. And the best part is that worker background is checked!Best regards,Belinda

Thanks Tobias. I think getting the right banlace between commercially led opportunities to sit and truly public’ seating is a difficult one. Whilst perhaps you’re right that there is a concentration of commercial seating in the busiest parts of the city, in other areas the Municipality (Kf8benhavn’s Kommune) has recently built new and inventive public spaces that are completely free to use. Kastrup sea baths and the whole of Amager strand Park is an astonishingly generous statement almost completely non-commercial space. There are other new spaces the city has recently delivered; the new Banana and Super Kilen parks in Nf8rrebro. There is also a fair amount of free public seating – i.e. benches along Strf8get and comfort along the water’s edge in Nyhavn that is in close proximity to paid seating. Not to mention, secondary seating like opportunities to rest, lean and watch along the doorways and steps, the Theatre decking and edge to the canals all offer many moments for resting and staying.In some cities, London, New York, the Middle East and many others there is a real threat to public life from privatised public spaces where real restrictions on what, who and how things can happen there. Copenhagen is not amongst these and it is important to celebrate that, we feel very positive about the banlace between commercial and non-commercial in Copenhagen.
