For those days when dropping off dry cleaning or replacing a windshield wiper blade seem like gargantuan tasks, wouldn't it be nice to download an app, click a button and have somebody else do it for you? Guess what? You can. Lazy people, pay attention.

Laundry and Dry Cleaning

The apps: Washio & Fly Cleaners
Where: Chicago, Boston, L.A., Oakland, San Francisco, Washington D.C. (Washio) & NYC (Fly Cleaners)

Two different apps, each tackling the same tough jobs: On-demand pick up and delivery of your wash-and-fold or dry-clean laundry, with prices that compete with the place down the street.

Cleaning, Furniture Assembly, Painting, and Installing Light Fixtures

The app: Handy
Where: 33 cities, internationally

You can hire housecleaners or a handyman to tackle a whole bunch of around-the-house tasks. Yes, including assembling your IKEA furniture.

Car Repair and Automotive Maintenance

The app: Your Mechanic
Where: 300+ cities across the U.S.

Ever wish you could get a mechanic to make a house call to change a brake light or replace a wiper? Your Mechanic will bring the supplies and tackle them both, plus a long list of other car repairs.
