Ratings and Reviews
Great on paper but frustratingly laggy!!
I spent about 3-4 hours on this app and while I love the concept and the articles, the rest of the app is not particularly functional. This is because of how laggy it is. I have a new iPhone 8 Plus (but not so new that it’s doing background set up actions eg camera roll stuff), nothing open and not on power saving mode. I’ve never had issues like this with any other more resource intensive app. Then why does it lag even when doing the personality test - seemingly the least resource intensive activity of all?! This makes anything timed beyond annoying and frustrating. The same applies to the two unity games from Deutsche Bank and EY. Great ideas! Fun implementation! But the general experience just feels unfair when it takes 5 seconds for a challenge to load (EY game) but once it is loaded the timer goes from full to empty in 3 seconds. Same with the Deutsche Bank game, whereby you accidentally repeat a challenge because it managed to let you know you lost and registered your click as the replay button, before you even realized you lost! Even the initial form for your credentials doesn’t feel as smooth as it should. Overall, it feels like a simple software optimization problem that is locking me out from enjoying the rest of the app. Please fix it!
Hi there, thanks for the detailed review. Glad to hear you enjoyed the articles but very sorry the rest of your experience did not live up to expectation. We will pass your feedback straight to our developers to investigate as it sounds like there is some bugs causing delays.
Super smart and actually works!
Like all other students, searching and applying for numerous graduate or internship roles is super tiring and takes up a lot of time. The Debut app made it so easy and almost effortless to get a fast-track in the application process, and I would be lying if I said that I didn't have a smile of my face every time I got talent spotted by a firm. I'm not sure how much Debut actually did contribute to me receiving an offer in the end, however, I did apply to a position via Debut and was eventually successful. Highly recommended!
Looks nice but seems too limited
Looks very fancy and I like the idea of the Abilities tab (although it is not functional yet) however I found the sectors to choose from to be too limited, I myself would like find companies that work in game design, but this app doesn’t seem to accommodate much for more arty kind of jobs with is a shame.
The locations are also pretty much limited to London and that sort of area (in the UK).
It would also be nice if there was a search bar in the opportunities section, the inability to search for specific jobs is weird, but maybe there is a search function that I missed and I apologise if that is the case.
tl;dr: It has potential but it’s choice of sectors is too limited for me as it is now.
Hi, Thanks for the feedback. We are aiming to increase the diversity of opportunities available through Debut all the time so hopefully more creative/design roles will be online soon. The first tests on the abilities tab are now live, hope you check them out!
