I think apps are the new websites. As mobile devices become more prevalent it will be important to offer these users of smartphones and tablets a good user experience. The best way to do that is through an app. An app gives your users easy access to your site/content.
If you haven’t thought about transitioning to an app I encourage you to do so. Even if its just creating a mobile friendly version of your site, that will help your user engagement when viewing from a smartphone or tablet. Its been proven that people stay longer if you have a mobile friendly version.
Today I launched by first app for sales in itunes for iphone/ipad.
Its called the ‘hidden jobs app’ and it tracks hidden job announcements across the U.S. in a simple interface that accesses a proprietary database which I update daily. If you have an iphone, I’d appreciate if you download it and give it a review. (.99 cents)
I think there are lots of opportunities for job boards to create their own apps. Stay tuned for more from me. This isn’t the last of my apps coming out.
