Review: unSnow.me On-Demand Snow Shoveling App Can Save You a Lot of Time and Effort

Those of us who live in snowy climates can appreciate an app like unSnow.me (free). unSnow.me is actually an app and a service, similar to Angie's List, but focused exclusively on snow plowing and shoveling. That singular focus makes it easier to navigate, get in, get out, and get the snow off your property.

The unSnow.me app features a clean interface that is easy to use. The app is not just for customers; snow plowers and shovelers can use it as well to bid on jobs. Since the service is not just for driveways, but also for steps, walkways, sidewalks, and even cars, it could be a good way for teenagers to earn extra income, with just a shovel and some muscles, when they can't do the same mowing lawns. Heck, last season I helped shovel out two neighbors whose cars were stuck. The only downside to an app like this is that it needs more exposure, so more customers and providers will sign up, making it more likely you can find a match. Hopefully this article will help in time for the next snowy season!
