    This app could be better. Android users can't select location and have to message the dev for example but overall it's a good app when it works, the approach of 10 per day is a good way of stretching out a limited number of single habeshas around the globe.

  • Great Idea and in the future be further improved. Apr 27, 2020

    By ye_gojam_lij
    I love the idea of being able to find someone who is Habesha with this app. There is a definitely a feeling amongst the youth to find a quality Habesha partner. So thanks to Selam Central and others involved in creating it! I only hope it becomes successful in the future and only through patience will that be achieved. I do want to add that the Jebena app can be improved. I find that the app does not allow you to scroll all the way down for some reason. A patch update can address this. Also if it possible, maybe more features can be added such as a better preference system and also adding more information about the individual (such as education or job occupation). Make it simple like tinder but also a mix of other more in depth dating apps. Edit: Wait if you get matched with someone do you have to pay to see? Or is it just to pay to see who liked you, but you didn’t like them.

    By Nathan Tebebe
    Having used Jebena app for a couple of days, I think it's the only dating app aside from Kum Neger app, where you can meet decent and genuine Habesha Ladies! I do understand the developers need to limit swipes up to 10 people per day as their are not enough users yet in addition to the Habesha community being small in the US relatively speaking. Patience is key and with time, I'm sure Jebena app will thrive with the support of the Habesha community as does any other project! I don't understand why reviewers rant about having to pay for a service that the developers put their time, effort, and resources to provide a great platform for Habesha's to find friends or future partner. I am more than glad to pay for a service that serves its purpose! The ability to give goes a long way. What goes around comes back around. For those reviewers that want everything to be free or somewhat, in life there is no free lunch whether you like it or not. ; )

    The app is simple and gives you access to individuals within a area you select. Other apps like tinder are just now rolling out that feature from being paid to now free. While Jebena is giving us that free option from the get-go. The app seems to be new and it is going to take time until there can be the option to have more than 10 swipe limits per day. It’s a volume issue which takes time to resolve based on getting more people to join, but most people don’t realize that and complain. This app is going to be game changing, just be patient and give them a few months and share with your friends too. God speed Jebena!

    It's a good start but not a lot of people there and they already charging. Get more people first client have to be happy to pay any dime on the app. Not worth paying money yet

    So many problems. Support has been super helpful that's why there's 2 stars, but I draw the line after losing literally half my matches. I just can't keep going back and forth with support like we're in beta.

    I'm not sure if it's compatible with android, but it wouldn't even let me log in. Tried multiple times with Google/Fb. I even installed the app again.

    This is an edit of a previous review. At first this app was okay and had its flaws, but now it’s truthfully completely useless. I’ve been limited to one swipe per day (sometimes I’m not even getting one) and somehow my account has -1 likes left, so when if I buy more I’d lose an additional one I PAY FOR?? But that doesn’t bother me more than how I’m not able to get at most one swipe per day. That’s an absurd limit to place, there are enough users at this point to at least get 10 a day. These bugs are just not acceptable and honestly the developers were too quick to launch this product; it still has a ton of work to do. I’m deleting the app and not coming back. It’s sad to say because I was really looking forward to using this app but it ended up being a flop instead.

    1st it won't let me edit my location.2nd my conversation with the only person keeps disappearing.3rd after waiting for a whole day to see what my 10 people options are it resets the clock to another 24 hr count down.Now if I was to pay which I won't.It's not worth the money because nothing is functioning as it should. I get that you need $ to develop the app further but get the funds 1st maybe get investors and get the app working properly before charging so much $$ for so little reward

  • A really good idea like big time Aug 13, 2020

    By K4id0s
    The first thing of all i loveee this app. App like this can help you narrow down your options so you don’t waste your time with people whom you don’t share similar interests with. This can include narrowing down age, location, sexual preference, and physical appearance. On top of that it attracts people looking for all kinds of relationships, from casual sex or a one-night stand to marriage and everything in between and most of all it makes it easier to find people from the same culture. Another thing to note is their quick customer service which i think it helps a business to stand out in an industry like this industry.

  • A breakthrough!!!!! Aug 21, 2020

    By aandlenatu
    This app is probably one of the best things to happen for the EthiEri/Habesha community, especially for those of us who are in different part of the world. I do believe we’re left behind in the dating world for many reasons but lack of networking to meet not only the right person but also those who share the same culture is one I’d like to point out. And this app have made that barrier that much simpler. I honestly think as a community we have the responsibility to grow this platform to maximize any one person’s chance to find his/her soulmate.

    Very good app, but difficult to use in an Android phone. Keeps getting stuck, but it's a good start. As for the people a bit of patience is warranted.

  • Great start Nov 13, 2020

    By everynicknameistaken1001
    Great job on creating an app that habesha and non habesha can meet. As someone that considers themselves an innovator I noticed that there is nothing new/exciting about the user interface... meaning after 2 weeks or so of being on the app I am super board and thus I am deleting my account. You want people to pay to see their match but I don’t want to pay to match with a 20 yr old lol. Thus provide a option for limiting age like all other dating app. I’ll be back if I’m still single lol but I suggest some sort of user incentive (better preference filter option).... Good luck!

    Chats don’t properly load, if they load at all. I received notifications of likes/match or message but nothing in the app. The daily reviews aren’t consistent or daily. Also why is there a 10 person limit? I tried logging out to reset things had to re-create profile.

  • Preferences settings... May 10, 2020

    By senuteddy
    I love the app and so glad y’all stopped making us pay to see who liked our pic (that was a very dumb idea). As for the preferences, it would be helpful for you guys to add an ethnicity factor into it (Eritrean or Ethiopian), for the ones like me who have a specific preference. I don’t like playing the guessing game and wondering if a guy is either Ethiopian or Eritrean—it’d save me time. I know when I first made a profile it asked for my ethnicity but not sure how that was used. Thanks!

    It's very annoying everytime you have to buy hearts and likes. Why don't you set a premium price with subscription???? Like LinkedIn?? And another thing if you don't buy anything sths it doesn't open for 48hrs it's crazy. I like it as an app it's so cool 😊 however, I know you can do a better job come on 😑 give us a better access.
