Jaumo – Free online dating
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
There are a few app categories we tend to see a whole lot of: Angry Birds clones, classic puzzlers, and video players galore. Another solid entry into this genre is the online dating utility, and for the most part—we aren’t going to lie to you—the selection isn’t great. That being said, we’re pleasantly surprised by what Jaumo – Free online dating, from Jaumo GmbH, is offering.
It’s a new, fresh-looking dating application for the iPhone that promises good, clear results in a private, secure and friendly way. We tend to agree with that, and if you’re looking for a new dating tool for iOS, it may just be your next ticket to ride. For our full review of the app, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
When it comes to dating applications, there are a couple of ways in which you can approach the central mechanics. For the most part, these apps offer some kind of match-making utility. This allows you to enter some personal information, hit a button, and then have your dates served to you like sushi.
Jaumo however, takes a different approach—and one we like quite a bit more. Each user signs up for a social profile, putting in some basic information about themselves on the front-end. After that, other users can patrol user profiles, looking for interesting and engaging partners. Want to let someone know you’re interested? Just drop them a like at their profile page. Want to go out on a date with them? Just leave a notice, and if they’re interested, they’ll get back with you.
In this way, the whole kit and caboodle is a lot more like Facebook than it is Zoosk. We like this a lot, and in our not-so-humble opinion, it’s perhaps a better way to go.
Design and Graphics
It also happens to help that Jaumo is one of the better-looking dating applications that we’ve seen in a while. Its interface is rock-solid, and incredibly simple to use. The entire registration process, for instance, really can be finished in three steps.
Furthermore, the tabbed navigational controls and handy lists make sure that everything you need to stay social can be found in only a few clicks. All in all, it’s a stunning design—though perhaps not the most original. Either way, it’s better than the rest, and that’s what matters.
We’ll spin it to you this way: Not everyone is going to have an interest in Jaumo, or perhaps even in any other dating app. If this is your shtick, however, and you’re looking for a new way to get out there, we can’t recommend it enough. It’s free, it’s easy to use, and it comes with a whole lot of promise.
If that sounds like a good thing going, then get to grabbing: Jaumo is recommended.
Jaumo requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
