Mobile App Watch - August '14
LinkedIn Job Search
Find employment while on the go with LinkedIn’s new Job Search app for iOS, which comes with many of the network’s core job search features (e.g. filtering open positions by title, location, company, etc.). Perhaps the most noteworthy feature, however, is the app’s ability to send notifications to a user when a recruiter has viewed his or her resume, when saved jobs are about to expire or when new, relevant opportunities are available.
Google My Business
Similar to the Google My Business Web platform, its new complementary app enables businesses to update and add information on Google Search, Maps and Google+. Through the app, users have access to select Google My Business stats, including data on how many times their business shows up on Google’s search results.
Getty Images & iStock
Getty Images revamped both its iStock and Getty Images apps for iOS devices. Both apps feature an updated interface and more intuitive experience, with better search, saving and sharing functionality. Plus, the updated Getty Images app features the company’s new Embed tool, which allows users to embed and share Getty Images’ collection of photos for non-commercial use on websites, blogs and social media channels.
Slack is an internal communication tool that brings employee conversations together in one place. Through the platform, users can create channels for team projects, groups and topics. Communications on the Slack platform are also searchable for quick access. Plus, users can enable mobile notifications so they can stay informed on projects even when they are away from their desks.
