Hippo iPhone App

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 4:42pm Thursday 13 May 2010    Print Article

Hippo Jobs have released their own iPhone application. Yes, they are still alive. Overall, the application design is quite nice. The app can use your phones geolocation data to search for jobs close to you. Same as some other iPhone job search applications (eg JobServe).
























It is probably the first application I have seen with detailed search results sort options.

Hippo has tried hard to add social networking integration. They have added the ability to share with your Twitter and Facebook friends.

Except as Twitter says "never enter your password in a third-party service". Twitter will turn off basic authentication to the Twitter API on June 30th.

Looks like Hippo will have to release an updated application with oAuth authentication.

All it needs now is more jobs!

Hippo are still around? This must be a very slow and painful death.

Yes, they went into Administration last year but looks like they are back again?
