Looks like they fixed it!
Thanks! Yeah, I didn't realise Twitter enables that by default. I've changed that to a read-only permissions.
The sample resume that this generates (dropbox) has kerning that is bonkers. The text is nearly illegible
Try downloading it, it seems that Dropbox borked the file in the preview. It looks much better in Preview and Acrobat. While it's still kerned (or tracked) a bit too tightly, it's much better.
Yes, viewing the PDF on a browser does have some issues with kerning embedded fonts. I'll be implementing a fix where the sample link will take the user to a live public resume page (e.g - glyph.pro/username) — where the user can see the web version and also download the PDF.
Sucks that it's not responsive. Also, I clicked your logo 3 times thinking it was a hamburger icon, just sayin'.
Finally something to help me create lists on the compuper screen.
Woah, there is some really useful feedback here. Thank you to everybody who checked out Glyph and providing your feedback here. Of course I realise there were some issues with UX and positioning. I'll going to be working on that ASAP. If anybody wants to get in touch or have more specific feedback - I'd love to hear from you.
the sample resume needs work, it's not worth $12 imo
I agree. Cute sample, but before I pay $12 I want to know what it looks like with job descriptions of realistic length in there. Is it flexible enough to work for someone with no schooling and a lot of work experience, or a recent masters grad? Can I only list core skills, or can I list things I'm trying to learn as well?
Bottom line, show me a couple examples that demonstrate versatility.
Agreed. Just seems quite basic to me.
This is cool. We've seen quite a bit of simvilar solutions to the resume problem in the past, but this looks quite promising.
The first impression was good. The design was simple, the colorful illustration was awesome. But while signing up, do I have to write bio? I think it's appropriate to do after signing up, when I build my resume. And after signing up, I just want to look around, recheck samples, but I can only see the page for paying. It's weird.
Yes, thats been fixed now. Post sign up you'll be able to explore the app and fill out your resume at your leisure. Once you're sure you want to publish your resume, you can pay and do so.
It's really fast! I'm gonna take a look around :D
They're on-boarding process isn't good. They should probably have me invest a lot more time before trying to get me to pay. Seeing the $12 fee after entering 3-4 lines of text was off putting.
Thank you for this. This is by far the most important feedback I've received from various sources. You're not seeing enough of app the and what it does for you to even decide if this is for you and most importantly — if you really want to pay $12 for it. This is going to be working on ASAP (ready right away).
What I'm going to do is let a user sign up, go to the dashboard and be able to explore the app. Take as long as you want to complete your resume and preview it. When you're comfortable you can publish the resume for which you'll have to pay the $12 fee.
Brilliant (: That sounds like the best approach. Good luck!
Some feedback I would give is that the light grey text might be a bit too light for print. A baseline grid would also be nice.
One bit of feedback from the sample resume is the company/school names are underlined so I would expect them to be links.
