4 Apps That Take “Sharing” To the Next Level

Recently we’ve spoken in depth about the benefits of the Sharing Economy. Today however, we thought to slow things down and take some time to look at the sheer area this movement encompasses. Here’s some really cool emerging services that take full advantage of this trend:

Always wanted to try snowboarding or skiing? How about surfing? Have you ever wanted to spend a day riding a bike but never had the money to invest in buying one? Spinster might be perfect for you. This system is easy and already quite popular: indicate which city you are in, what type of ride you are looking for and browse through all of the offers, which include price, a picture and an address.

Ever wanted to learn how to design a logo, use photoshop, bake a pie, master calligraphy, make the most out of your cellphone camera, learn about SEO? Browse through the many classes available on the site and watch the videos of those that catch your interest. Or you can also teach a class yourself (and get paid!). Viewing videos is free but limited (1hour/month): to have unlimited access to all the classes, membership is $9.95/month with a 7-day free trial.

If you’re in a big city you know the struggle that is  finding a parking space. Irregular visitors can take perfect advantage of this app. Just type in the desired location, browse through the different offers and select the one that suits your needs based on price and location. That simple. Some spaces are available either for short term or long term stay.

You’re new to a city, you don’t know anyone and need help with something, say someone to help you carry boxes when moving in? Or you are lost with accounting and need expert advice? With Taskrabbit, you can chose between four categories: cleaning, handyman, personal assistance or moving help. Then, either you search yourself for a “Tasker” (which all have a picture + a description + grades and comments based on their previous performance) or you let Taskrabbit search for the perfect person for you! With transparent hourly rates and a 20% service fee.

These are just a few examples of the many new apps that all promote the sharing economy movement. As you can see, there is no limit as to what kind of services exist on the web.
