Just like the online version and with all the same user capabilities as the online layout, the CareerBuilder app is super easy to use and boasts a 2-million-job database. It knows your location and searches for local jobs based on an easy keyword search.

LinkedIn app works just like the online version and is by far one of the best ways to make connections and keep connections.
