I am very excited about the new features and improvements in Version 1.10, with the Advanced Search getting a major upgrade!
The Advanced Search improvements include:
- Search for occupations by their Work Force Requirements (i.e. how much involvement they have with data, people, or things);
- Search by General Educational Development levels (i.e., the reasoning, math, and language requirements of the occupation).
- Change each search component to look for the exact value or the minimum of the value you specify (you used to only be able to search by the maximum). Have you ever wondered what are the SVP 9 jobs? Just swipe left and find out!
Other improvements and bug fixes include:
- Better printing/emailing formatting to page-break correctly and adjust dynamically;
- Added change log intro and version history page;
- Fixed bug in Transferability view where hitting group information button would cause crash;
- Fixed bug in color of email header bar; and
- Updated all WebViews screens to have consistent theme.
Here are some pictures showing off the new features:
Job Sleuth now takes advantage of the full modern iPhone screen (iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max). Also included in this version are a host of other small improvements and bug fixes.
Some of the fixes are:
– Printing from the list views should no longer crash the app for any users.
– The Transferability Analysis page had an issue with the layout of the modifier cells; no more.
– Layout issues that kept some explanation pages from fully displaying are now fixed (e.g., explanation views for the SCO, Strength Rating, Work Force, and GED fields).
– Improved visibility of navigation panel when emailing.
– Made it even easier to leave a rating (I appreciate all positive reviews left!)
Below are some pictures of Job Sleuth Running on the glorious new iPhone XS (seeing how much information can be displayed at one time makes me want to chance broaching the subject of buying a new iPhone with my wife!):
Ok, version 1.8 has been live for a while now, so sorry for the late post. I am going to blame (or, well, thank) my firm for making me a junior partner and adding a whole mess of new responsibilities on my tardiness…
Anyway, a while back (October 29, 2015), I released version 1.8, which I am really excited about. Basically, the new version is now optimized for and looks beautiful on all iPhone screen sizes. I know the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been out for well over a year already, but better late than never, and I think the new Job Sleuth looks amazing! Better still, the groundwork I laid for this update will make future updates much easier to implement.
Other improvements in this update, if less exciting, should definitely make the user experience better, and include: Landscape orientation support(!); more visual cues in the detail view to make understanding/digesting the data more intuitive and fast.
So what does the update look like?

So, this has been a really busy year, and because of that, Job Sleuth was basically placed on the back burner, sorry. Priorities like a beautiful new baby, exciting and challenging new responsibilities at my day job, and moving to a new house had basically taken up my free time until a couple of months ago.
That said, having now had a couple of months of off-and-on spurts of free time, Job Sleuth is nearing a new update and I am really excited about it. Ok, this first update is mainly a face lift to take better advantage of the new larger screens on the current iPhones. I know, this is about a year after these changes should have been made, but I am stoked to be finally close to pushing this out. Here are some picures of the new app on my iPhone 6.
Like I said, nothing flashy, but Job Sleuth is now a modern app.
Also, there are several behind-the-scenes improvements that will make future updates easier. Speaking of which, my next goal is to make the app Universal (a free update, as usual); first because it will be nice to take advantage of the big iPad screen, and second, because it will finally show up when people search the App Store on their iPads (yay!). Once these updates are in place, I have some fun ideas on some new features I hope to add that will make Job Sleuth even more useful!
If no delays occur, the update should land in the couple of weeks.
