My review

I do enjoy the notifications and the tasks to complete section. It is quite a well designed app.

However, recording job search evidence can be a little tricky. I feel sorry for whomever is not technologically savvy for they would struggle and become annoyed quite easily.

For example: I have learnt that if I have the app open for too long and then reopen to record evidence of a job I applied to, I can enter all the information in but once I submit it the app logs me out and I have to re-enter all the info once more. To get around this little glitch I log myself out and in again after I know the app has been open for too long and not been used.

Hi Ames23! Thanks for your feedback about the app. We're glad to hear you find the notifications and tasks to complete sections useful. For security reasons, the app does log out after a period of time. We are working on creating a PIN login to make the process easier, which we hope to roll out by the end of the year. Best of luck with your job search

Some bugs. Good otherwise.

I’m not sure if this was an intentional change or a bug, but since the last update the background colour in several sections of the app has changed to black with the text being a dark grey or black (not visible). In other sections the background is instead light grey and the text white. It’s making it impossible to read anything.
I’ve also stopped receiving alerts that I have notifications or messages from my consultant, despite giving permission to the app to do this.
The app overall, apart from the above issues, has worked quite well. It’s easy to navigate and input information.

Hi Spuzfinkle. Thanks for the feedback.
It sounds like you might have your mobile in dark mode. If you go to your mobile's device settings > Display and brightness, you should be able to change it there. Hope this helps.
Best of luck with your job search.

Helpful but

The app is good, it helps with keeping track of things & I find entering the jobs easier this way but, it makes you put an email or phone number in for the employer and if it’s an online application for a large company, there isn’t any of these details available and most large companies these days make you contact them via an online form. This makes it rather difficult to use.

Hi Thank you for your feedback. I have passed this on.
