    "XOJO scam with no integrity! Still huge security holes."

    January 23, 2014  |   By betty54321

    Version: Xojo 2013 release 2

    Pros

    - their live demo site is cute n pretty (all smoke and mirrors as most seasoned programmers know). This product doesnt even have the true ability to make the site you create AJAX capable (which is the standard today to help save your server resources). Also they care more about making pretty live demo graphics than spending time providing a product that doesnt have security holes all in it.

    Cons

    Simply google "Security Hole in every Xojo" here is an excerpt below.

    There is a big issue in the Xojo and Real Studio runtime. It will load at startup any dylib in the frameworks folder.

    Below you can download a empty dylib. This is a plugin library for Xojo/Real Studio for Mac which does nothing but writing a message to Console.app. You can drop it in any Xojo or Real Studio made app (Carbon or Cocoa doesn't matter). When you launch your app the library is loaded and executed.

    This makes trouble for us as some users have installers which don't remove the old dylibs. So the new version loads the old plugin dylibs and complains about bad registration or missing entry points.

    Not to forget this is an easy way to add a key logger or other malware into each app!

    Summary

    This is the main problem with their products, whenever a major bug is reported to this company they make excuses and blame other companies for the issue which then makes all of their security holes and hacker access available. They need to acknowledge and take security and product bugs serious (and stop posting their PR statements and replies that denys they have any serious security holes and bugs).

    Also they need to do something about all the server memory their apps use. I think the product is flawed with memory leaks in some of their dlls.

    Why start using a buggy IDE that you will have to spend $900 to make your app live on the internet? This is what they call a scam ware company with no desire to honor any level of integrity, just hungry for money.

    I wouldnt use it for free and I would run away from this product and not waste my time.

    "MUST READ! XOJO A SCAM - Foo Basic Web Studio is better"

    January 22, 2014  |   By IDECodeDoctor

    Version: Xojo 2013 release 2

    Pros

    This company spends it time making pretty hackable demos than investing time making a product that is more secure. They prey on ignorant consumers.

    They claim their product creates secure when theyre own website (which was create with real basic which they renamed the company now to XOJO) was HACKED and taken down by last summer.

    If you dont believe me just google "bkeeneybriefs.com RealBasic hacked"

    here is a link to one article it seems XOJO hasnt been successful to remove from the internet. Seems like they blame other companies for their site being hacked. If you don't see or admit to a problem how can you fix it.


    Cons have to start here since there are many to list:

    1- NO AJAX! Xojo doesnt do AJAX well. No fast way to add AJAX to entire projects. Watch them laugh at your browser reloading with every click.

    Cons

    2- $900 INVESTMENT, COSTLY! You cannot deploy your app without paying them $900 (with required database addon)! Money hungry company.


    3- HAS BUGS! Beware THEIR cross platform claims && attempts have made their product bug ridden!

    4- MEMORY HOG! You better be prepared to spend a lot more ($$$) on hardware because the apps you create with XOJO uses a lot of memory which in turn requires you to purchase more hardware to handle more site users (not cost effective).

    5- CREATES HACKABLE APPS! As mentioned above some hackers easily penetrated and HACKED XOJO's website (called RealBasic before the site was hacked, go figure).

    6- NO REAL HASH AUTHENTICATION. This company spends it time making pretty hackable demos than investing time making a product that is more secure.

    7- I think Ive listed enough reasons to avoid this money hungry company that appears to be more focus on PR and marketing and aesthetics and making money than making a great and secure product.

    Summary

    I would HIGHLY suggest to our $900 and dont be fooled by this company's flashly live demos that are hackable and go with web ide that at least offer the basics like AJAX and real user and form authentication methods. Personally 2 much better and free products you might want to try are Foo Basic Web Studio by foobasic.com (which is what I now use and is pretty darn excellent) and ASP.NET by microsoft (this is good but is more time consuming and complicated for beginners than Foo Basic). Hope this helps you and good luck with your apps!
