Review: Shine App (CV & Resume)


Shine is fantastic CV/resume creation app which can make your CV/resume look polished, professional and perfect. You don’t have to worry about designing the look – the app has amazing templates to care of that, you just need to enter your information and the app takes care of the rest.

When you are hunting for a new career direction or just managing your own personal files, your CV/resume is probably sitting on your computer somewhere as a Microsoft Word document and maybe has not been updated in a while. If you are not particularly confident on a computer, perhaps your CV/resume is pretty basic to look at as well with just your recent work history, interests and references.

Shine changes all this. The way the app works is that you enter all the information that the app requires, then the app will take that information and apply it to a several different templates to choose from. You can even use a different template each time you want to print or share your document – without editing any of your text that you previously keyed in.


The notes state:

Email and print high resolution print-ready PDFs and images right from your iPad.

– Create beautiful info graphic CVs or resumes. No design experience required
– Pick from professionally designed layouts and enter your own information
– Change your chosen design and preview your CV or resume at any time
– Easily update your information and tailer for different jobs

It’s one of those apps that will stay on my iPad tucked away in a folder with my CV/Resume all ready to be shared if needed and best of all it will look miles better than the version knocked up in Microsoft Word..


The app is $4.99 and you can download it here.
