CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you tired of spending precious time tracking down babysitters and keeping track of their schedules and contact information? A newly released iPhone app and personal babysitter organizer is now available on the Apple iTunes store at . The Sitter Sorter app, created by A&S Simple Solutions, costs $4.99 and was inspired by two parents who were convinced there was a better way to keep up with the frustrating task of sitter scheduling.

"My husband and I were discouraged by the overwhelming process of finding babysitters, sorting out their information, and trying to keep up with scheduling tasks," said Leila Sbitani, mom and television personality who created Sitter Sorter with her husband Andrew Hahn. "We believed there had to be a way to leverage mobile technology and merge communications, convenience, and information."

Designed by mobile apps development company WillowTree Apps, the Sitter Sorter rotary dial animates when you touch it, allowing parents to dial it like a rotary phone. The Sitter Sorter has other user-friendly features, allowing parents to create profiles that can easily be sent to others who do not have a smartphone via text messaging:

  • Children profiles with activities and special needs.
  • Parent profiles with contact and other important information.
  • Sitter profiles with address, phone number, e-mail, rating system, cost, contact preference, and touch screen schedule.

Sitter Sorter also provides an alphabetical list of babysitters, including friends and family helpers, and enables parents to access sitter information quickly and easily from their iPhone contact list. In addition, when parents need a sitter they simply enter the date and time in the database and the available sitters appear on their iPhones. Moms and dads can also sort through possible sitter choices based on three criteria: cost, rating, or proximity to their location.

"WillowTree Apps was delighted to bring A&S Simple Solutions' vision to life using our Mobile Tango™ platform and holistic mobile apps development approach," said CEO Tobias Dengel. "On a personal level, as both a technology executive and parent, the Sitter Sorter is truly filling a void when it comes to raising – and at times leaving – your children responsibly and with confidence
