Too wide search results
The app is ok, and the results do match well for search terms unlike some other job apps. My complaint is that the search area is way too wide. I’m north of Baltimore and my results are for DC and northern VA. The website lets you narrow it by distance but the app does not. I hope this changes because otherwise I can see this being a good, useful app. I just don’t have time to look through all these jobs I’d never apply to.
Easy to use
This is a great app. It is easy to use and not overwhelming to look at. I love how they organize jobs in different categories such as by location and category. If you feel you are limited, their filters can help you narrow your search.
UI is very problematic
I cannot see what I type when adding a description to my job experiences. The description text field is hidden by my keyboard when I tap to type something. What I mean is the field doesn’t move up to allow me to see what I type and also you cannot copy/paste anything either since you can’t highlight or long press in the text field since it’s not visible on screen when typing. This is such a huge oversight and I cannot be descriptive about my experiences which is troubling as potential employers won’t know what I did/do in my past or current experiences which defeats the purpose of this app. Please fix this blatant and critical issue.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
