    Jobr v0.7.3: [7/25/09]
    This app uses Indeed.com's API to search for jobs. I wanted to do a job search app to help others find employment because of the economy.

    The app uses the GPS API to get your latitude and longitude and do reverse address lookup to get your local city.

    You may freely distribute and install this app. It will remain free once the App Catalog comes online.

    Feedback, bug reports and feature requests are welcome.

    Features:

    • Search for a job by keyword.
    • You can choose to filter jobs by how many days old they are.
    • Search the entire U.S., a city/state or just your local area.
    • Save a job as a favorite on the app home screen and jump directly to it.
    • Each job search is saved to the app home screen so you don't have to retype it.
    • Open up a browser to view more information at Indeed.com.
    • Send a job to a friend or other person.
    • Open a map of the job location.






    Updated to v0.7.4 on 7/26/09:

    Updates:
    • Fixed issue with the next button not working properly on the job results scene.


    Updated to v0.7.5 on 7/28/09:

    I got a great response on the poll. Thanks to everyone that gave their opinion. 90% said that the ListSelector was a better choice for the State field.

    Updates:
    • State field was changed to a ListSelector.


    Known bugs:
    • For some reason the City TextField widget is not fading out when it is disabled like what the State ListSelector does. It's probably a styling issue.(?)

    This is nice. It searces whatever the database for the word no matter where it is at. Suggestions, is there a way to set your home city and state as the default so you don't have to type it everytime but leave the option if you want to search in another area you still can.

    All I can think of right now, I like how it saves the recent searches.

    nice.. it would be great if you could support multiple sites in a search such as Monster, Dice, Craigslist, etc. I will def. check out the app now though.

    That is a great idea. I will add that feature.

    Indeed actually pulls in the other websites; I am not exactly sure which ones. But I think the major ones like Monster are included.

    From Indeed.com:
    Indeed.com is a search engine for jobs, allowing job seekers to find jobs posted on thousands of company career sites and job boards.
    I have plans of supporting the other job engines as well. It just depends on what their API offerings are.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    I agree the more search engines the more results. But this app sounds very helpful. Hopefully this will help me get a job!

    When I do a job search, i get this message: "error:Status 404 returned from job search. Found 25 jobs! page 1 of 3 pages". I can only view page one. It will not allow me to proceed to the next pages. It does this with every search I do. Any thoughts?

    You need to download the newest version 0.7.4. Remove the old version before installing the new one.
