Our Review:

JSwipe Review November 2018

JSwipe is the largest and the fastest growing Jewish dating app available in the market. Since its conception in 2014, the app has gathered over 600,000 members across 70 countries already. Most of its members are found in the large cities in the world, including Los Angeles, New York, and Tel Aviv. Your matches are based on location, but you can always adjust the distance scope in the app settings. You can even set it to worldwide if you want.

JSwipe is an app that helps millennial Jews find love, romance, and friendship. Though the app was first developed to cater to the needs of the Jewish community, it has now opened its doors to non-Koshers who are interested in knowing Jewish traditions and are actually considering marrying a Jew someday. 

If you are looking for casual arrangements, this may not be the best app for you. Most of its users are looking for long-term relationships, someone they can bring to every family dinner, or someone they can celebrate Hanukkah with.

One Tap Sign Up

  • Registration is only through Facebook.
  • One tap sign up process
  • No need to answer tests upon registering
  • No fees needed
  • Only has four slots for pictures
JSwipe Registration

There is only one way to register an account in JSwipe and that is by signing up via Facebook. Apparently, the app can only be used by Facebook users. So if you're planning to try JSwipe, better make sure to have a Facebook account first. 

Upon launching the app, you will see a button which says "Login with Facebook." By tapping on it, you are granting the app access to some information you've given in Facebook. That information will then be synced to your JSwipe account. The registration process won't take long since you no longer have to fill out forms or take personality tests before getting an account. 

Profile Information

  • Profile Information is not that detailed
  • No verification process
  • Your profile is linked to your Facebook account
  • Pictures can be viewed for free
  • You can input your Jewish Preferences
JSwipe Match Profile

The app does not ask for a lot of information from you. That means you have to make an effort to actually get to know your matches. Message them, and let them know you exist!

What has caught people's attention is how JSwipe managed to categorise the "Jewish Preferences".  It has the "Kosher" and "Non-Kosher" option which allows people to determine if you are a Jew looking for another Jew, a non-Jew looking for a Jew, and so on. It also has a "Denomination" option which gives people an idea of your religious background.

Setting up your account is very easy. It takes no longer than 5 minutes since most of the fields are already populated by the information from your Facebook account.

Matching and Contacting Members

  • Sending messages to your matches is free
  • Distance scope for finding matches can be adjusted
  • You have to pay if you want to send messages to people who don't like you back
  • You can send photos to your matches via instant messaging
  • You have one free super swipe everyday
JSwipe Match

Your match suggestions in JSwipe are based on your distance/location. But unlike other location-based dating apps, JSwipe allows you to take control of your distance settings. You can choose to shorten or widen your distance radius anytime you want. It also has a  "worldwide" option that makes you swipe through members from across the world for free.

There is no swipe limit in JSwipe so you can just go and swipe all day! When you get a match, make sure to leave them a message. Matches expire within 18 days so better strike a conversation before it's too late. Besides, it wouldn't hurt to say "Hi!" because it's free! 

Special Features

Super Note

The 'Super Note' is a premium feature that allows you to send messages even to those who haven't swiped right on you yet.

Passport

This is a paid feature that functions like a VPN, but instead of changing your IP address, what it changes is your location.

Optimise Photo

This is another paid feature that gives you the power to optimise your photos. With this, you will see which of your photos can get you the most right swipes.

Field Test

"I am a traditional Jew and I find dating very challenging for me. I'm always having a hard time finding someone who wants the same things as I do. 

I was never a fan of dating sites or apps, but I was really intrigued by this. I never thought someone would actually create a dating app that is (almost) exclusive for Jews.

It's only been a month since I started using this and it's going really well so far. I'm glad that I gave it a try. It has so many features that I liked. 

I have matched with someone who has the same beliefs as I do and I plan to get to know her more in person. Also, I am keeping the app for a little while longer (in case my first date goes bad)." - Benjamin (24)

Do you really need an upgrade to enjoy JSwipe? Well, that depends on your definition of 'enjoy'. If you are happy with unlimited swipes and free messages, then the answer is probably yes.

New members have the privilege to experience some of the paid features for a limited time, specifically the Passport and the Explore option. With this, you will have a firsthand experience of how a First Class account would be like. After your free trial expires, you will be prompted to upgrade to first class. If you enjoyed the free trial, then you should maybe consider upgrading your account.Their membership fee is reasonable, considering all the benefits you can get from it.
