Concept testing iphone recruitment apps

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 4:00pm Tuesday 16 December 2008    Print Article

I am very fortunate enough to be informed daily about new products, innovations and technology from job boards, recruitment agencies and ATS providers - some of that information can be publically talked about, but most (approx 80%) can't be divulged due to various confidentiality agreements.

Today I was sent a number of screen shots of an iphone recruitment application in concept development for a [company] in the Australian market. It was very flash, web2.0... but I am not really sure if it will take off (10,000 apps already created for the iphone)


I do not have a iphone yet; maybe after Christmas and when my phone contract expires I will get one. The concept of this application is good but my advice back to the product team was the following...
  1. You should not be creating applications just for the iphone - Your website/application should be mobile ready for the future. Google android phone will be on our shores soon. What about the blackberry?
  2. Is the data secured?
  3. Is the application data/bandwidth heavy?
  4. Is the application necessary?
  5. Is it going to improve business productivity?

interesting article Thomas. Maybe your readers would also be interested in the iPhone app I developed called Recruiter.

Available worldwide on the AppStore, just search for Recruiter.

Nik
