Code-blooded present Odd Jobs
Doing, doing, done...a marketplace for odd jobs
Odd Jobs arose from the need to get jobs done, which may be too small to hire a professional, but could be beyond your skillset, or you don't have time for.
An app to bring the community together. People can ask for, or offer, help with odd jobs. A simple way to pick up extra money if you have some spare time and want to help your neighbours.
