Resumes contain the following sections: - Contact Information - Objective - Experience - Education - Skills - References
When I read that there are NO files saved on your device but stored on the cloud, that gave me significant pause. First, this means the app must have internet access to work. Second, what happens to the file if either you have no access to the internet or the service goes dark?
Or worse, who has your private information and what can happen to it?
I went looking for answers. What I found disturbed me, and gave me absolutely no reassurance at all with regards to the security or safety of your private information, nor the dependability or ethics of the developer.
The first thing I discovered was that he has reviewed his own apps, even thanking himself in the review for this one (see M Twain). [UPDATE: Found more fake reviews in January and February.]
Okay, fine, fake reviews happens frequently. But going back, there is no indication what server this file and its information is going. Google searches indicated that the APK info contains twansoftware.com, which is parked on GoDaddy servers. Incidentally, his chuinard.com site is hosted on GoDaddy servers. GoDaddy doesn't instill confidence in me and my tech background; they do a fine job of domain registration and provocative advertising, but not much else.
I suspect that your resume data is being transmitted in "clear text", which means that there is no security on the transfer of the information or file. Naturally, there is no way to determine the security of the server as well, or of its security of the data. Again, I suspect that it stored with little security, probably on shared hosting servers in the care of GoDaddy. I'll check on the security of the transmission, and if I'm wrong I'll revise this review accordingly.
The app apparently uploads your private, sensitive information to the dev's server, which packs it into the proprietary (and problematic) format of DOC. Then the server emails it to you, again without security (not to mention email attachments are a bad practice).
Remember, your resume likely contains very sensitive information such as your name, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and enough history for identity thieves to have a party. Which brings us to the next issue: what happens to your data after you upload it to Tony's server? What does, or will, he do with it? A couple of years ago, he and a buddy named Craig Landry started a company called SpeakBin [...] which lasted about 18 months. The website no longer exists, and the app is gone from the Google app store. His Google+ page make it seem that his business is run from his home office. Nothing here gives me confidence that the service won't disappear tomorrow or the day after, along with your resume data and money you spent for this app.
Not only that, if or when the business goes belly up or is bought out by another company, what is going to happen to your data? Will it be sold to the highest bidder to cover his next month's mortgage? I don't know. But ethically, he's not on the most solid ground in my opinion, so I'm not assured that wouldn't happen.
By the way, this app doesn't have data-mining spyware because you are giving that data to him freely; there's no need for the malware.
On a last note, there's nothing here that couldn't be accomplished by using a template with one of the available office suites, except that you'd maintain more control over your file and your data.
21 year-old, and "Secondly, I could really care less about your data" ... Although what he means is that he doesn't care to steal customer identity data, but it also seems he doesn't care much about protecting the data as well ...
ok majority of jobs require you to fill out paper work online. naturually you're going to need an online resume. Saves time and one less thing stress about. This is what makes this app good. Its stored online. Now here's something for you folks scared of privacy. Uh news flash if you have a facebook or are on any social media guess what someone can steal you're personally infornmation simply by adding you as a friend. This app doesn't ask for a social security number or photo ID. The same thing you would write on a job app you can enter in the categories provided. Once you're done simply email it too yourself and then download it to you're hard drive or whatever storage device. There's no gimmick its so simple I have this and used it countless times landed a lot of jobs with this app. Employers just want a resume that's simple and easy to read and that's just what this app is. It loads on all websites so if it doesn't show its not the app its your uploader for the device you're currently using in combination with whatever website my advice download different uploaders preferably anything Microsoft if that's unattainable then explore around with different companies uploaders. As long as you have Norton firewall nobody will hack you're device and like I said this is low risk app.
I was having issues after doin my resume wouldn't send it to me. I needed it for the next day. I emailed for support an got an email almost instantly. He got me straitened out and the app worked great for me. I'm pulling one star only because it would be nice to simply have the option to have it emailed or stored locally without having to email then download the file then all these security related bad reviews would be gone. The doc.x format was a bit of a pain but 10 minutes I downloaded free Microsoft viewer Would be much better in another file format word would be preferable as its pretty much the standard.
