Building and keeping your resume current can be a task all by itself. Luckily, there are some great resume builder apps for iPhone that make staying on top of your resume easier than ever. From a great selection of templates to exporting your resume to the web, here are our picks for best resume apps for iPhone…
Modern resumes, LinkedIn import options
RadResume has some of the most modern looking resume templates you’ll find. The interface is one of the best and data entry is dead simple. You can even pull all your information from LinkedIn to create a resume in just minutes. You can create and export as many resumes in RadResume as you’d like. The only thing you’ll pay for is additional templates. You’ll get a few for free but you can buy more packs as in-app purchases if you choose. Each additional pack will cost you $1.99.

Ten templates, one low price
Resume Maker offers ten great templates to choose from for a one-time only $2.99 purchase. You can also attach a photo of yourself to your resume, something not found in a lot of resume apps. Data entry is dead simple and you can create as many resumes as you’d like at no additional cost. There’s also built-in cover letter support so you can tailor each resume to each job you apply to. When it comes time to share your resume, you can email it, print it, or save it in Dropbox, Evernote, or Google Drive.

Resume Builder Pro
Easy online resume publishing
Resume Pro offers a quick and easy way solution to get your resume in front of as many eyes as possible, by publishing it on the web. The best part? You don’t have to know how to write a single line of code to use it. Just build your resume like you would in any other app and choose the export to web option. Resume Builder Pro will take care of the rest for a one time $20 fee. You can of course use Resume Builder Pro to make printable and PDF resumes as well. The traditional template selection isn’t as robust as some of the options above, but they get the job done. I’d only recommend Resume Builder Pro over the others if publishing your resume to the web is a top priority.

If your needs are basic
I can’t help but mention Apple’s own Pages app. It may not have tons of resume templates, but the ones it does have are decent and easy to use and fill in right from your iPhone. If you have a Mac or iPad, you can pick up editing right where you left off, thanks to iCloud sync. If you’re already using Pages for other things, I’d suggest taking a look at the resume templates it offers to see if you can make one of them work.
* $9.99 or Free – Download
Note: Pages is free for any device purchased after September 2013.
