Last month, I announced that we’ve been cooking up some awesome stuff on CTB specifically the site’s design and layout, a dedicated page for local tech jobs, and one thing I missed to mention – the “Apps Highlights” section which features Top 10 apps across all available categories and will be published in a daily basis (weekdays only) beginning this Monday. The “Apps Highlights” however will focus on iOS apps for now, but that doesn’t mean closing the door for other apps in other platforms. Apps for Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry OS, or even Symbian OS will still be featured from time to time, but not as frequent as with iOS apps. The reason for this is the availability of tools that will aid me in web scraping and ranking apps directly from each platform’s app store.

The Fresh and Cool New Design of CTB Blog

The theme in designing the new CTB blog focuses on simplicity and I want it to be as clean as possible, yet still has the feel of a professional technology blog (yey!). I left it to our friends at Clicking Labs to apply the makeover and of course, do some coding magic. And the result? Well, just let the pages speak for themselves so I’d suggest you view it here, here, here, here, and here.

The Cebu Tech Jobs Portal

As some of you already knew, CTB entered into a partnership with Cebu Tech Jobs (CTJ) so the latest job openings in Cebu and its nearby cities are also available here. That Jobs section is now live and you can browse for the latest job listings here.

So, do you like this new development? Well, I do. But of course, it’s always best to hear what you think about all of these. After all, this blog is nothing without avid readers like you who care how appealing the site is. Right?
