A couple of weeks ago I made a tremendous technological leap into the
world of the smart phone. I have a distinctly acute fear of technology
and change, so for me, this was a pretty huge deal! For years and
years I've had a rubbishly cheap pay as you go Samsung mobile; the
only thing changing throughout the years being an upgrade to a slightly
newer version of the same winning formula. But, I guess sitting with a
bunch of techies finally started to wear me down, and I was launched
kicking and screaming into the generation of Internet phones.
having some, frankly confusing discussions, with the tech team about
the type of phone I should get, with each brandishing a new and
complicated phone and selling the benefits to me with relish, I finally
decided on the HTC hero, a glorious example of a smart phone, and so
I'm told, is a strong competitor to the iPhone. I am all smug with my
new found ability to not only text, but 'tweet' and 'Facebook' on the
move, upload pictures at the tap of the whizzy touch screen- I'm
totally in my element.
And it seems that I am not the only one
to have embraced the smart phone era. Since 2008 when the iPhone
launched itself upon us, it has been purchased in its millions! Which
is why when my friends at AllTheTopBananas.com told me about their
latest product, I was very interested indeed...

job searching application for the iPhone. Making them market leaders in
mobile job searching, those clever devils!

had a play with it on the iPhone, and I can't help but marvel at just
how slick it really is. Easy to use even for a technophobe like me, and
with great features that make it even easier to job seek, it truly is a
great app- and best of all, it's completely free!
assured me that there is going to me an equally whizzy version for my
little android phone soon, so I'll be sure to let you know when that's
finished. But for all you iPhone jobseekers, download the app now!
you're in for a banana-y treat!
