    Pros: 

    Nothing

    Cons: 

    Anything is better than being treated the way their staff treated me.

    They double billed me for 6 months and when I asked for a refund, their staff insulted me. I want my money back. Not a good company to do business with at all.

    Kennedy Marie Hernandez has used this product for one month.

They've also recently (re-)added the ability to make purchases for you, which is great. I wrote up a post on what I use Fancy Hands for here: http://blog.maiabittner.com/post... if you're intrigued but need some inspiration on what you would use them for
@maiab Your company double billed me for 6 months and when I asked for a refund, your staff insulted me. I want my money back. Not a good company to do business with at all.
I think this is a duplicate from the past. Or maybe I just saw it mentioned on Twitter, not sure. I signed up recently to give it a try and see what I can outsource to the assistants.
Surprisingly, Fancy Hands hasn't been posted yet although it's not new. They recently released an API (http://www.fancyhands.com/blog/t...). I'm interested to see how people use it.
API is interesting, almost a higher-end MechTurk. I used FH for a while but kept forgetting to use tasks and they didn't accrue. Been happy with oDesk since.
I've heard some productivity hackers mention it, they use it to save time on trivial and distracting tasks. I wonder if anyone in the PH community uses it actively in their daily workflow.
