Looking for a (better) job? Pull out your iPad, because it can help you find what you’re looking for with the new Monster.com app. It lets you search for and apply for jobs, and it heads up the last Fresh Apps list for January. Read up on the details for Monster.com below, along with some apps we thought were interesting that have nothing to do with job searching.

Monster.com Jobs for iPad (iPad) Free

Use your iPad to help find the job you’ve been hoping for, with a little help from Monster.com. The job search service has just released an iPad-only app that hooks you straight into the company’s website, allowing you to search for jobs, read their descriptions, save them for later and even apply without ever leaving the app.

Once you’ve created an account on Monster.com, you can sync the app with it, which will keep track of any changes you’ve made and jobs you’ve saved or applied for. The app also gives you access to things you’ve added to your account, like saved resumes and job alerts. And anything you can’t do through the app — like apply through employers’ websites — you can save and access on Monster.com through a regular web browser.

Portal – Full Screen Browser (iPhone) $1.99

As the name implies, Portal is designed to give you web browsing that isn’t impeded by search bars or the other elements that can crowd up a mobile browser. It’s also designed to be simple and operated using only one hand, with an easy-to-use interface, and amped-up privacy protections.

READ  Home Security Maximized with These Apps

In addition to its full-screen features, Portal allows the use of multiple browser profiles, allowing you to share the use of Portal on your iPhone with others, without stepping on each others’ toes and crowding one another’s bookmarks or histories. It’ll also let you use stealth profiles for your browsing, to keep others out of your web-browsing business.

FaceMan update (iPhone) $0.99

A photo booth in your pocket — that’s how developer Libero Spagnolini describes FaceMan, a photo app designed to take portraits with both the front- and rear-facing cameras on the iPhone 4. The app contains about 20 different effects that can be applied in varying degrees to your iPhone photos, and also allows you to save altered photos to your photo roll or share them on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.

While snapping photos is nice, shooting video is even better, and FaceMan has been updated to support video. Effects can now be tweaked with a slider, and when you’re done shooting and altering video, it call be shared — just like photos.
