In the US employers tend to like someone who is currently working. This is probably true in much of the rest of the world as well.
Taking a peek at your profile, I see references to User Experience and Android. This hints at things like web page layout, app storyboarding, etc.
If you are 'between jobs' in the full time sense, then the first fallback is the 'contractor' role where you work on a time and materials basis. You might also work 'temp', which is similar in some respects, however the contract is with the temp firm, not with you directly. Often this starts to look like full time work, with the distinct difference being that they can let you go on almost no notice.
In general, someone in your situation will need to cast a wider net. If someone tells me that they can't find work for a big company developing websites, I suggest that they work on departmental databases (i.e., Microsoft Access) at a local medical clinic or wholesale warehouse. Anyone that works 'indie' gets used to taking on strange jobs - that comes with the territory. Work like this changes one's perspective pretty significantly, successfully completing it even more so. In general, employers are impressed with flexibility and adaptability.
The value in this is that if someone asks you what you're doing now, you have an answer beyond 'sitting at home emailing resumes'. The work might be ghastly and the pay miserable, but taking on a challenge is better than appearing inactive.
