Sneak Peek at JobLens: a new way to find a career that suits you

Joblens home screen

Bringing our coverage of Nokia's partner apps that were demoed today towards a close, we have a somewhat intriguing use of the Windows Phone lens feature: JobLens.

Positioned as a service to help those looking for work, JobLens provides a friends list to help you network and look for opportunities through your contacts, but that’s not the clever feature. As suggested by the title, this app uses augmented reality to show you jobs that are being advertised near your location.

You might be wondering what purpose that serves, but if you think about it, the location of your job is actually quite a big deal. Finding a job near where you work, or even coming into an area you find pleasant and looking for jobs nearby actually does make sense.

One of the coolest things about this app though, from a veteran Windows Phone user’s perspective at least, is that the background of its main panorama is animated. Seriously check out our video hands on, it is funky! This may be a sign of things to come, but more on that later...
