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.

Developer Response

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

Broken App

Generic Dislike

It's a completely useless app that is targeted and advertised as being an easy way of tracking job efforts however every time you go out of the app and come back it crashes and asks you to log in again as well as when you leave your job search effort, and come back to fill in more jobs, you're sent to a blank screen that won't load properly. Would give a 0 star as it is an utterly useless and broken app but Apple doesn't give 0 stars. Even deleting the app and redownloading makes it worse and you end up restarting job efforts based around an even more broken welfare system that is Centrelink.

Not a good app!!

Ridiculous!! Way to slow, cannot figure out how to do most of the stuff on here as it’s not set up properly. We already do all this on paper, give it to our job agency. What’s left for them to do in their job that we don’t already do? Why does it all have to be online?, where is the face to face contact. Meaning I see this as pointless an a waste of gov time & money to make this app!!! If it was easier to use & actually be able to understand all the BS then yes it might be ok, but when the agency doesn’t even no how to work it, then you no this app has come out way too soon!
