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.....On Monday I launched my first app for sale in the itunes app store.
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 (or ipod touch or ipad), I’d appreciate if you download it and give it a review. (.99 cents). I sold 25 copies the first day and have modest expectations that I can earn enough to cover my car payment. Of course the apple tax of 30% will cut into that but not much I can do about that.
Right now its beeing featured in the Business section of the app store.
I got the idea after seeing some of Jim Stroud's posts on the subject and thought to myself. There should be an app for that. So I found a developer on elance and the app was done in less than a month. Its intended for job seekers, career coaches, reporters or anyone who wants to learn about companies that are hiring.
