Which one do you prefer and more importantly, which sends out more jobs? Why?

Neither will show jobs that aren't there. Jobulator is from Frontline, the same people behind Aesop. Not sure about SubAlert. I've used Jobulator in the past but not in the last two years as where I am there is such a sub shortage that I don't need it to work a full day, every day.

I'm actually running both right now. There is not a big difference between them. I like that Jobulator tells you the number of available jobs. This is helpful when there are a lot of available jobs. I like that SubAlert allows you to see your scheduled jobs with out logging into Aesop/Absence Management.

There is no difference in which sends out more jobs. What is interesting is sometimes I get both alerts at the same time and other times there is a 3-4 minute difference between alerts between the two apps.

I've used both...no preference really except I always go with Jobulator because they allow you to pay monthly. I will be stopping the app for the school year on May 15.

It is totally random. After running both for the current school year, sometimes one will notify me first, sometimes the other will notify me first, and sometimes they both seem to alert me at the same time.

I think I've tested them all. More recently, I was trying out Sub Alert and Sub Assistant side by side. I think Sub Assistant may be a bit faster via text notifications. But Sub Alert has a great phone app that books with one click and also shows your scheduled jobs (I haven't seen this feature on other apps). It's also less expensive than the others (only $4.99 per month).

Good point about the notification you get with SubAlert. I know I have missed jobs because I didn't click on the notification, and opened the app instead. It seems that both of them are slow to open on my Google Pixel I.
