A new mobile application from the state of Ohio allows jobseekers to search and apply for jobs using an iPhone, iPad or Android.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services announced the free OhioMeansJobs app on Monday, saying it allows users to search tens of thousands of job openings and internships using a job title, keyword or location.

The app combines state of Ohio data with search and filter tools from Monster.

Ohio's unemployment rate was 8.1 percent in December, a drop from November that officials say can in part be attributed to people who gave up looking for work or otherwise left the labor force.
