Nowadays with so many smartphones available in the market at a very low cost, their popularity has increased in an enormous way. With that, the use of apps has also increased. An app is nothing but a shorter version of the term ‘software application’. These software applications are commonly used in mobile phones and tablets. Most of these apps are free of cost and are available on the application distribution platform operated by the owner of the mobile operating system and can be downloaded easily. Although certain apps need to be bought for some nominal charge-- a fraction of this goes to the developer--while the rest goes to the distribution provider.

Earlier apps were mainly for entertainment, general productivity and information retrieval, but now the scope has widened a lot and you see all kinds of apps for ticket purchasing, location based services, banking and many more. One such type of app was made for people who are searching for jobs. At present there are many such apps, but some of the most popular apps for searching a job are as follows:

  1. Job Compass: It is an app which helps you in searching for jobs which are near to your home within a certain radial distance. This app is available for iPhone users for free in the iTunes store.
  2. Jobs by Careerbuilder App: This app helps you in finding and applying for the jobs from your Apple device even when you are not online.
  3. Resume Tips: It helps the job seekers about the golden rules, tips and warnings on how to prepare a good resume.
  4. Indeed.com: One of the most extensive app for job search with thousands of listings and is very popular among all kinds of job seekers. It is available in both iTunes and Google Play.
