Jaumo Review November 2018

Jaumo was founded in 2011 in Southern Germany by Jens Kammerer and Benjamin Roth. They chose the name "Jaumo" because it meant "sunrise" in Aramaic - an allusion perhaps, to the app's promise of a new start or beginning for its members. Today, Jaumo has around 30 million members, with majority of its users coming from Germany, US and Brazil. 

Signup Process

Jaumo Registration
  • You can register using your email or Facebook account
  • Registration takes 3-5 minutes
  • If you register using FB, it will upload all info it needs from your Facebook account
  • The app only asks for your gender and birthday
  • Jaumo needs to access your phone's location to work properly

Jaumo's registration process is extremely easy, especially if you opt to signup via Facebook. The app takes all the information it needs, plus a few photos from your Facebook account to create your Jaumo profile easily. If you choose to signup via email, you just need to input your gender, birthday, and then allow the app to access your phone's location. After that, you can start using the app as you please.

Contacting Members

Jaumo Zapping
  • You can meet other members via suggested matching
  • Swipe left or right to show your interest (or lack thereof)
  • Once both parties show interest in each other, they can message each other for free
  • The action of swiping left and right is called Zapping
  • You can superlike someone by tapping the Heart icon

Jaumo employs the same suggested match format that other dating apps like Tinder and Happn use. Called Zapping, the app asks you to swipe right if you like someone, and left if you're not interested. Conversely, you can tap on the check mark or the X mark to make your choice. If someone you're interested in is also interested in you, then a match is made. You can start conversing with each other after that at no extra cost.

If you want to show someone that you're really interested in them, you can superlike their profile. However, free users are limited to a single superlike, and after that you need a VIP subscription to superlike more profiles.

Profile Quality

Jaumo Profile
  • The app takes information from your Facebook profile if it is your chosen mode of registration
  • Users can edit their profile information any time
  • You can see other members' profiles clearly for free
  • Pictures can be viewed clearly and are not blurred
  • Profile information is public by default

Free users can view other users' profiles and pictures without any limitations. Jaumo's profiles are more informative compared to a lot of apps - aside from basic info like your age, occupation and general location, you can also divulge your height, religion, and smoking/drinking preference. Profile information is public, so if you don't want to reveal something, you can always choose the "ask me" option instead.

Special Features

Jaumo has special features that make interaction and socialisation more enjoyable, and give you more opportunities to find your perfect match.

Jaumo Live Video

Liked List

Unlike other apps where you need a premium membership to see who liked you profile, Jaumo offers the feature free of charge. See a list of people who already swiped right on your profile, so you can swipe right on those you're interested in, resulting in an instant match.

Live Video

Users can stream videos of themselves doing anything under the sun, as long as it's not indecent or offensive. It's a great way for users to increase their popularity as other users can watch and like their videos.

Real Life Review

I use apps like Tinder and Happn, so when someone suggested Jaumo, I didn't see any harm in trying it as well. So far it's been a blast - most of the people I talk to are actual people and I don't really have to pay for anything to chat to them. The ads do kinda get annoying sometimes, but at least you can try the premium service out for a week if you don't want to see the ads. In the end, I decided to stay as a free member. Ads are still annoying, but at least I can experience the site to the fullest without paying a single cent!

Why is it that I get stuck in the Jaumo registration process?

If for some reason the registration process doesn't lead you to the dashboard after you've given the necessary information, it may be because you've disabled your phone's location detection. The app needs you phone's location to give you matches in the nearby area. While the app always requests permission from the user to turn on the location settings, sometimes the notice bugs out and doesn't appear, resulting in the user unable to move on in the registration process.
