What users are saying:

“Excellent app – works like a charm and worth every penny. I have Job Browser on all my computers, but now I have the DOT/SCO information in my pocket (on my iPhone). This means I can use it in meetings and many other places where I don’t have my computer.” ~ David Camp (SSDB Attorney)

Job Sleuth “is a great asset for Social Security Attorneys and Vocational Experts to use while interviewing clients in their office or at the hearing […] It is a MUST have for a Social Security Disability Practitioner.” ~ Ed P. (Vocational Consultant)

NEW FEATURES in version 1.8 (released 10/29/15):

Job Sleuth is now Optimized for all iPhone Screen sizes in Version 1.8

The biggest news in this update is that Job Sleuth now looks beautiful on all iPhone screen sizes. Ok, I realize the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus came out over a year ago, but better late than never, and I am very excited about finally pushing this update live. Better still, the groundwork I laid for this update will make future updates much easier to implement. In addition to supporting all screens, there are many user interface improvements that should make using the DOT even easier and more intuitive, including: landscape orientation support; also, now Work Force Requirements listed in the detail page are now identified (labels to the left of cell specify each class of requirement).
