"Is XOJO a scam? Yes. Please read this review first."

May 04, 2015  |  By georgefao

 |  Version: Xojo 2014r1.1

Pros

Nice idea but very poorly created by Xojo, Inc. which resulted in a very unstable and unsecure unusable product (even though this company keeps claiming differently) with many frustrating bugs you have to keep stopping writing code and focus and waste time figuring all the bugs in Xojo software.

Cons

Too many cons to list here. Please see my review in the summary section below.

Summary

I would just like to warn other people so they do not make the mistake I did and get scammed by XOJO. I purchased XOJO product because their website demos seemed like the product would work well for me. I found out later that XOJO hired a slick ROI marketing company to create their slick demos and websites (not even really using XOJO even though the website claims to). Their site is designed to lure unsuspecting people like me to buy their bug ridden XOJO software. In short I tested the product in house and here are just a few from the long list of many bugs and issues I experienced: 1-the product has some serious security issues which will allow most hackers with basic hacking experience to gain access to anything you create with XOJO. XOJO is easily hacked. Hackers even took down XOJO's own website a few times (along with all their customer's financial information like credit cards). Xojo (back then they called it RealBasic) website was easier hacked by a teenager (which Xojo refuses to admit and still places the blame elsewhere which is why bugs are rarely fixed. You can fix what you don't acknowledge). http://www.bkeeneybriefs.com/2013/04/real-software-website-hacked/. With all these issues.

2-Also another serious flaw and bug in Xojo is anything you create with it will require a lot more of your web server's memory and resources. This means as more simultaneous users access your website or things you create with XOJO the slower your site and response time will get. In simply terms you will need to invest a lot more in hardware to handle many simultaneous users if you choose Xojo products.

3- When coding and debugging in XOJO ide a whole lot of things that should work simply dont and if you contact XOJO about it they will simply deny the bug exist or say we are aware that we have some bugs that needs to be fix and then a few years later guess what, its still not fixed. If you want to waste your valuable development time then use XOJO. We stopped using XOJO all together and found a much better product called Foo Basic.

4- Also about 2 weeks after I purchased the product on their Xojo website I notice someone was making charges using my new bank VISA debit credit card (and XOJO is the only company I used this new card with). Maybe they have a criminal element on their staff? This isnt a company I would recommend you should trust with your credit card info or IT project. They also keep releasing things (they call add-ons) that should be already included free and then try to charge your credit card for it. Bottom line is if you add up the cost to use XOJO its going to be hundreds of dollars (with all the basic add-ons like database access) you need to purchase and a lot of frustration and wasted development time. I'm almost 100% certain they will try to reply to my complaint using one of slick marking companies to discredit me however if they simply admit their problems they can work on eliminating them and become a more trust worth company.
