Types of Mobile Apps Infographic by FreeMan Marketing

In today’s world of mobile devices, having a mobile app is all the craze right now. There are some things you need to know before plunging into the mobile app world; The different types of mobile apps. Yes, there is more than one type of mobile application and knowing the difference is crucial if you are in the market for having a mobile app built.

As this infographic by FreeMan Marketing explains, there are 3 different types of mobile apps. The first type of mobile app is Native, the second is Hybrid, and the third is Web.

1.) Native apps are housed on the device and have access to various phone features. Some examples of native apps include most games and utilities that you can use without internet access.

2.) Hybrid apps use both the native phone features and web features. Some examples of hybrid apps are Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, and The Weather Channel.

3.) Web apps require internet access, as they are on actually just websites, but they look and feel similar to a regular app. An example of a web app is if you visit Twitter or Facebook on your phone using the phones web browser, both websites look like apps but they are actually just mobile versions of the website.

Below you can see in the infographic various examples of each type of app.

Taasky Task Management App

As designers and developers, task management is a crucial process in our everyday lives. Without order and management, getting things done on time would be near impossible. Having a way of keeping your tasks in order and all in one place is something we all need, and not necessarily just for work purposes, but for our home life as well.

Lucky for us, Taasky is here to save the day. Taasky is a beautiful, simple, and easy to use task management app, designed by Scrape apps and powered by CLEEVIO, that features a minimalist design and stunning UI. Taasky offers up categories so you can sort your tasks and filter through them easily, each category is color coded, so keeping your tasks organized is easy and effortless.

There are many task management apps out there but the problem with most of them is all the unnecessary clutter and features we don’t need or use half the time. Taasky has done a great job at eliminating all of this and focusing soley on the tasks at hand. The app also makes creating and completing tasks fun with its swipe animations and cool sounds (you can optionally turn off the sounds).

Right after downloading the app and opening it, Taasky has a nice welcome screen and it quickly walks you through how to use the app. Once you are at the main app screen you will notice the preset tasks that Taasky created for you. These tasks are for information purposes and they show you more on how to get started creating, editing, and changing the priority of tasks. I will be honest though, this app is easy enough to use so you may not need the intro tutorial.

Taasky App Welcome Menu

Taasky App Default Home

To add a task you simply pull down on the screen or push the “+” icon at the top right. A small area will appear and you will be able to name the task (where it says “add new task”) set the date for the task, set the alert time for the task and select a category for it.

Add task Taasky App

Set Date Taasky Task App

As I mentioned before, you can organize your tasks by category or “list”. It gives you four different default lists, but by visiting the settings section, you can edit them as you please and create your own categories or “lists” as you can see in the image below.

Taasky Lists

If you have tasks in place and you wish to edit them, prioritize them, or delete them you simply swipe over the task to the left and a menu is displayed as you’ll see below.

Menu for Taasjy app editing task

Swiping to the right brings up the main menu that displays the various categories you have set up and also the settings. This way you can display tasks from a certain list, say your tasks you have set for work so that you don’t get them confused with other tasks. Below you can see a screen capture of the main menu.

Taasky Side Bar menu

Taasky features push notifications in case you were wondering and they do work with a very distinctive sound to help you distinguish them from texts or emails.

Here are some more images of the Taasky app and if you wish to download it here is the link.

Features I wish it included

This is version 1.0 of the app that I reviewed so hopefully we will get some other additions to the app in later versions. Something that I thought would be useful is the ability to add more categories or “lists”. Right now you can only have 4 categories ( no less no more) and it would be useful to be able to add more or subtract some if needed.

*UPDATE*: Version 1.1 allows you to add more categories now!

It would be cool to have the notification badge on the icon for tasks yet to be completed, that way users know how many tasks they have left without having to open the app.

Using Social Media for Recruitment

In recent years companies and recruiters have taken to social media as a means of finding and hiring people. 92% of companies use social media for hiring, LinkedIn being the number one social platform used by companies to hire. This is not an unbelievable statistic by any means, you can use social media to find out more about a person than any interview would reveal.

What platforms are companies using for recruiting? Three main ones to be exact; LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. In 2012 93% of companies used LinkedIn for hiring, 66% use Facebook, and 54% use Twitter. One of the biggest benefits to using social media is time, 20% of recruiters say it takes less time to hire and employee thanks to social media.

There are fall backs for using social media if you are trying to get hired that should be consider. You need to be careful about what you say and post on social networks. As this infographic by Staff shows below, 3 of 4 hiring managers check candidates social media profiles even if they’re not provided and 1 of 3 employers reject candidates based on something they found on social profiles. So it’s important, if you’re using social media, to be careful what you post especially so if you’re looking for a job.

Although social media is an ever growing tool used by employers and employees to find and hire, there are still some companies who don’t use social media for recruiting. 36% of firms don’t use social media for hiring, so don’t ditch that paper resume just yet.
