Mixed year because as good as the metrics are compared to last year, it saddens me that a huge number of people are laid off and companies closed because of Covid-19. Hopefully 2021 will be different. Hereâ€™s a sneak peek of the OnlineJobs.ph app metrics during lockdown.
In terms of number of installations, active devices and overall metrics, OnlineJobs.ph experienced significant gains throughout the year 2020. I rewrote the app, from React Native to Swift, back in January 2020 and released the new version a month after. Same with Android, I rewrote it from React Native to Kotlin and released it a month after iOS release date.
Also in terms of UX design I also redesign the app to make it more in line with the platformâ€™s guidelines. Below are my initial sketches. My app inspirations for this redesign were VSCO (very evident on the menu) and Apollo.
As you can see on the graphs, May – July 2020 was peak lockdown because of Covid-19. I also assumed many were laid off and installed OnlineJobs.ph app to look for jobs and new opportunities.
Same metrics with Sessions, May – July 2020 had a significant bump on installations during peak lockdown.
Impressions metrics also saw a significant bump. These are the number of times the app showed up on the App Store.
OnlineJobs.ph for Android also saw a huge bump on metrics and still continues to rise.
Android app also, during May – July 2020, saw an increase in new users during lockdown.
For 2021, new versions are coming for iOS. Significant fixes for Android too.
I am aware that the OnlineJobs.ph for Android needs major improvements and fixes, I received a large number of issues and crashes and I am looking forward to resolve it for 2021. Apologies if you are affected and know that I am hard at work on resolving them. Thank you for using the app. If you have any questions, issues or crashes you can email me directly at [email protected].
