Clean app. Not issues with use, but falls short in onr major way...no way to set parameters for distance. I travel for work, bit if I can't filter between HI, TX and FL it renders the app practically useless unless you have and hours to search 131 pages for the titled position in the area you're willing to work. Therefore, I can't rate beyond 3 stars.

The app is SO SLOW. I don't know if it's an optimization issue or what, but the app is nearly impossible to use. Loading the app takes several minutes, and then even more time as you click through the tabs. Loading messages also takes forever. Another fun bug is sometimes you can't click on the job you want to view. If you can, applying for it is buggy, with some necessary sections often becoming unclickable. Some features are available in this app that weren't before, which is nice but still.

Good, but could be faster. It's convenient to be able to browse job posts and see messages from my phone, but it boots up pretty slowly. The current version of the app is significantly slower than the previous version. (My phone is a bit older, though, so that could be causing it.) For anyone getting stuck on the "download client app" screen, uninstalling and then reinstalling the app fixed that for me.
