TaskRabbit Goes Mobile, Makes NYC Debut

"Service networking platform" TaskRabbit is making its mobile debut with the launched of a iOS app for the iPhone and iPod touch. What does TaskRabbit actually do? A "two-way marketplace," the start-up "connects TaskPosters, people who need help, with TaskRabbits, a network of pre-approved and background checked individuals, who have the time and skills needed to complete the listed task," The Next Web explains.

"The mobile app will allow you to coordinate tasks you can't handle while you're on the go, which is exactly when the busiest people need it." Even more exciting for The Next Web, TaskRabbit is making its New York City. The service is already live in San Francisco, Orange County, Los Angeles and Boston.

How is TaskRabbit differentiating its service? By focusing on the verification process with added transparency and what The Next Web calls an "unparalleled vetting process."
