    "An extremely easy way to make a simple, but a visually appealing resume. You can go with super simple or something a bit more modern and edgy if it matches who you are. I would recommend this to everyone that is interested in the same old boring look!"

    "CV Maker works well in terms of helping you customize visual aspects of your CV/resume. It has some templates that can really make your document stand out from others while still looking professional. Unfortunately, it does not really provide a lot of guidance in helping you edit its actual contents, which is possibly of more actual importance, but it does not necessarily promise that, so I think it delivers on what it does intend to do."

    "This app is worthless. There are too many ads in the first place. Secondly, it is completely user unfriendly. I couldn't type my name and it kept trying to take control of my keyboard. Even at free it isn't worth the money!"

    "This is an incredible app. I've never really been able to put together a decent resume: I always find some crappy word template and just try to fill it in. Being able to actually just create one on my phone, while riding on the subway? Brilliant. The interface is very straightforward, and other than a lack of customization, this app's just perfect."
