TaskRabbit Launches Web App For Deliver Now in San Francisco

In June, we were thrilled to launch Deliver Now, our on-demand courier service through our iPhone app. Today, we’re super excited to roll out the first Web-based, on-demand courier option: The Deliver Now Web App. So, what does this mean? It means anyone within San Francisco can enjoy the seamless on-demand experience of Deliver Now from his or her desktop. Of course, those out and about in San Francisco can still use Deliver Now on their iPhone through our iOS app. The Deliver Now Web App is just as easy to use as the feature on our iPhone app. The TaskPoster just enters the details of their delivery and a nearby TaskRabbit will be assigned automatically to complete it, usually in less than a minute. The assigned TaskRabbit will be on their way in a jiffy to pick up and deliver the item to the TaskPoster. The average delivery takes less than an hour. Pricing is the same — an introductory flat rate of just $10 — and the TaskPoster pays expenses directly through our …

Tasking the SF Street Food Festival

This weekend, 80,000 people descended upon San Francisco’s Mission district for some good eats, cool drinks, and really (really) long lines. We’re talking about the SF Street Food Festival, and Team TaskRabbit was out in force. We set up shop near the entrance to the main beer garden to chat people up about Deliver Now, our exclusive-to-San Francisco delivery feature. The response, to say the very least, was extremely enthusiastic. Especially when we mentioned attendees could use Deliver Now to have any food at the festival delivered to them in the beer garden — no waiting in lines needed. We teamed up with eight of our favorite vendors (including Wise Sons Jewish Deli and The Créme Brûlée Cart) to give people an on-site Deliver Now experience. Did you miss the festival? Don’t worry, we’re happy to bring any of San Francisco’s famed street food right to you. Just download the latest version of our app and tell the scooter TaskRabbit what you want to eat. We’ll track it down (even if it’s on wheels) and …

How Are You Celebrating Sandwich Club Today?

We’ll be celebrating by shoving greasy, gooey, delicious Philly cheesesteaks into our faces. [pullthis]Now, we’re not going to take sides in the whole provolone vs. Cheez Whiz Debate.[/pullthis] We’re not even going to offer an opinion on raw vs. cooked onions. And peppers? Well, you’re on your own for that decision. [pullshow]What we are going to do, however, is let you in on our favorite cheesesteak joints in San Francisco. We love The Cheesesteak Shop, Jake’s Steaks, and Metro Caffe (with tater tots on the side, naturally). In case you missed the banh mi kickoff last week, the mission of Sandwich Club is to eat sandwiches. We’ll be carrying out this mission all month long using the exclusive-to-San Francisco Deliver Now feature on the free TaskRabbit iPhone app. Wanna join us? San Franciscans who use Deliver Now for sandwich delivery four times will receive the 5th delivery on us. That’s a pretty tasty deal.

The First Rule of Sandwich Club is…

August is National Sandwich Month. Do you understand what we’re saying here? National. Sandwich. Month. Shoving sandwiches in your mouth on the daily is totally acceptable until September 1st. Here at TaskRabbit HQ, we intend to honor the sandwich as fully and deliciously as possible. That’s why we started a little thing we like to call “Sandwich Club.” The mission of Sandwich Club is to eat sandwiches. We’ll be carrying out this mission all month long using the exclusive-to-San Francisco Deliver Now feature on the free TaskRabbit iPhone app. Wanna join us? San Franciscans who use Deliver Now for sandwich delivery four times will receive the 5th delivery on us. That’s a pretty tasty deal. Today, we begin the festivities with a delightful banh mi. What sandwich will you have for lunch today?
