Missing several simple, intuitive features
Tried booking a job as a customer with Takl. I received 2 providers right away: 1 had many good reviews but showed that he was 426 miles away. I wanted to simply clarify with him that he was closer than that before confirming, but the app has no message function that allows customers and providers to communicate and ask these types of simple, clarifying questions before committing. The only way to message someone is to first confirm them for the job.
I was also unable to go back and see/edit the details of my job posting after I submitted it but before I confirmed a provider; I had to go to the help portal and IM with a Takl representative to get the information. If I wanted to change anything, I would then have to cancel the job and go through the entire submission process again.
Takl - please take a cue from other successful service-based customer/provider apps like AirBnB. The above features are very simple and, in the case of the messaging function, can be implemented so that Takl doesn’t lose business as a result of customers and providers making their own arrangements outside of the app.

Thanks for the feedback. We will certainly pass your suggestions along to our development team. You are welcome to ask any clarifying questions about providers with our support team via the in-app chat or by emailing email@example.com.
More like flag football than Takl
The first few jobs I requested went pretty well. It was all downhill from there. I wound up getting my jobs cancelled because Takl blocked them from even getting to the contractor because they didn’t have anyone specializing in the particular job, or they wouldn’t accept liability for the job. My initial disappointment pertained to a job involving drilling into a ceramic floor tile, which couldn’t be done because Takl was concerned about cracking my tiles. They weren’t too worried about hanging a pull-up bar in my 9ft. ceiling, which could severely injure me if it fell, but couldn’t accept the liability of cracking one of my floor tiles. The second job involved repairing my lawn sprinkler plumbing (splicing one break), but they don’t have any irrigation specialists that can do the job. I would recommend Angie’s List or another home service app, Takl seems to be somewhat limited in the amount of jobs they can perform or are willing to supply an expert or “specialist” to do jobs. They would be my 3rd choice. If you can’t find anyone on an “Angie’s List” type of app, use Takl.

Thanks for the feedback. Takl is the app that can help you with small jobs and chores. We have over 400 pre-priced jobs like house cleaning, lawn care, furniture assembly, junk removal and our popular Build Your Own Job. The jobs you mentioned do sound like they require specialized tools. We hope you'll use Takl again for one of our other 400+ chores!
I have to admit that initially, I was very happy with the service I received through this app. However, on the last job request, a young lady came to clean my house and brought her 15 year old daughter. Her daughter did most of the work and she didn’t do a very good job at all. I paid $200 to have my house clean and when they left, the floors were still dirty. They had not been thoroughly swept or mopped. Bathroom toilets, floors and mirrors weren’t cleaned. The one bed that I asked her to make, wasn’t made. The cabinets weren’t wiped down, as stated part of the service. The stairs weren’t swept or vacuumed. When I filed a dispute, the company only wanted to issue a $50 refund, but then decided to give me a $75 refund. I paid $140 to have a 15 year do a poor job cleaning my home and Takl didn’t think it was a good idea to refund my money or send someone else out to clean my house. I have a 5000 sq foot home and they were there less than 2 hours which makes it clear that they didn’t effectively clean my house.
Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
This app may use your location even when it isn't open, which can decrease battery life.
