Device Optimization/Mobile App Setup

This article is for Device Optimization  

Here are a few tips and tricks to keep your mobile devices (phones & tablets) running as quickly as possible.

#1. Turn off Wi-Fi

When working in the field your device will auto-connect to different Wi-Fi networks, and this will cause the app to stop working or move very slowly.  Only rely on Wi-Fi when you are using a trusted network like Work and Home.

#2. End all other apps from running

There can be several running apps in the background that will cause the device to run slower. Restarting the device does not prevent these other applications from running. 

#3. Clear your Cache and cookies

We recommend you do this weekly. You can google search how to clear your cache and cookies for the browser and phone you are using.

#4. Make sure that "pop-ups" are blocked

You can google search how to do this for your specific phone and browser. For Chrome, go to "Settings,"  "Privacy and Security,” “Site Settings,”  “Pop-ups and redirect,” and select  "Don’t allow sites to send pop-ups or use redirects"
IOS (Apple) through Google Chrome

#1. Open Google Chrome and type in

#2. Click the gray Login button at the top right of the page.

#3. Scroll down and click on the orange Jobba Login button.

#4. Bookmark this login page for easy access moving forward.

#1. Open Google Play Store and search for “Google Chrome”

  • Install or update if needed

#2. Open Google Chrome and type in, then click on the square with the arrow pointing to the right (top of the screen, a gray icon).

  • This will take you to a screen where you can choose between Mobile or desktop log in, choose mobile.

(IMPORTANT: Now that you are on the login screen, *DO NOT LOG IN*)

#3. Click the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window, then scroll down to the bottom and click on Settings.

  • Click on Site settings, click on cookies, check the radio button to allow cookies
  • Click on "pop-ups and redirect" and make sure the toggle is on.
  • Confirm that JavaScript toggle is turned on.
  • Make sure "location" is set to "Allowed".

#4. Under Settings, click on Passwords" make sure the toggle is on, so you don’t have to log in each time; it will give you an option to save and remember password & login.

#5. After all settings are set up correctly click the 3 dots again, then click "Add to Home screen".

#6. You will see the app shortcut on your home screen; click it and log in with your username and password. It will give you an option to stay logged in; click to allow that. Once you enter your info it will ask you if you want to save your password with Chrome; reply "Yes" to this.

(VERY IMPORTANT: The first time you log into Jobba it will ask if it is OK to use your location…you need to click "YES".)
