Bidbud is an Android and iOS app that simplifies gig work — it allows placing freelance and short-term job ads. If you need to get some task done, you can post a job and simply choose a specialist from those who put a bid. The users can look for any kind of freelance work, from gardening to walking the dog. As a freelancer, the user can choose a job from the list and offer their terms of cooperation.

Bidbud’s creators say that the gig economy is the model of the future. And we agree with that: making direct contacts for short-term work is easy and convenient for both parties. Unfortunately, there are some bugs in the Android version of the app that might spoil the first gig economy experience for many users. Take a look at our findings on how this app can be improved.

An interesting project with a cool idea. In this app, you can post or find freelance jobs, leave reviews, and offer your terms of cooperation. As a QA engineer, I always try to evaluate the app not only from a professional standpoint, but also from the user perspective. While users rarely check the file size when uploading their images, the latter is often the primary reason for app crashes.
