Creating an iphone enabled job site

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 1:00am Monday 17 August 2009    Print Article

Last week, we released our white label iphone job search applications and since then, we have had a number of queries as to how you can create an iphone enabled job site without creating an application.

It's possible. But as I previously talked about, there are numerous problems with mobile recruiting and mobile enabled job sites. Unless you have programming experience, I would suggest you let us create the iphone application or iphone enabled job site for you.

The goal is to simply turn an ordinary standards-based HTML into a polished, usable interface that meets the high standards set by Apple's own native iphone apps.

This is a very basic example. All we are going to do is list the latest jobs, and then open the full job advert.

I have created an example for you to play with. Try it on both your iphone and computer browser.

Many websites and services offer great mobile versions without being packaged in an App Store application.

As you can see, it looks and feels like an iphone app but is really an iphone themed web site.

If you want to be able to quickly access these sites from your home screen, follow these steps
  1. Launch Safari on your iphone

  2. Enter the URL and browse to the desired mobile site (most sites will automatically redirect you to the mobile version once they determine that you're using an iphone)

  3. Click the Favorites (+) button at the bottom of the screen

  4. Click "Add to Home Screen"

  5. Type a name for the icon that will appear on your home screen

  6. Click the "Add" button
