  • 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.
  • Awesome Idea Jul 13, 2020

    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!
  • 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.
  • Cool app Jun 16, 2020

    By Habesha Ting.
    I like the app. I just wish we had more personality options to choose from or at least be able to manually input them ourselves. Also it would be nice to be able to see who liked/loved my profile without having to pay but other than that the app is pretty good.
  • 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.
  • Easy to use and very fun Nov 30, 2020

    By Zizumar
    I luv this app! It’s easy to understand and set up. I m really enjoying it, it’s fun, it’s Habeshan and is a good opportunity to meet new ppl! And the developers really go over and beyond to try to help, and always looking for ways to satisfy their customers! Just like any other app there r products u can pay for to get extra advantage. However, the number of likes u get per day is sufficient, although I wish they get to make it 2 or 3 free likes to unlock ur matches in a day as well. I really recommend this app!!!
  • 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!
  • Good but needs minor improvements Dec 6, 2020

    By aliciastarr7774
    I love the idea of the app, I just wish they would allow you to view more than 10 people a day and allowed you to see your matches more.

    This app is great because it gives a chance for the habesha community to gravitate closer to one another. So far it’s been an amazing experience. I’ve been able to connect with people from all around the world. Highly recommend 10/10!

  • Please update May 3, 2020

    By pubglover1011
    So I downloaded this app to see how it works. After downloading it and filling out all basic information, the drop down field on location will not show any city or area that I search for but instead if shows any. After a couple tiresome attempts I decided just to select any for location. Then having set my profile I went ahead and tapped on the home icon and there is nothing to display. All see is just loading screen icon with nothing else, I gave it a few seconds but it still won’t show anything.I had high hopes for this app so please take this criticism as a positive to give your users the best experience they deserve.
  • Horrible Aug 14, 2020

    By Honest Employee
    I originally thought this was a great idea, but my experience has proved this to be a waste of finances. I found there to be too many issues with finding people in your area. The people I would meet wouldn’t want any communication outside of the app. It made me feel as if the app isn’t real, and the request to know one another was used to generate revenue. To future members. I would advise them not to buy any packages. Just meet people and see how it goes. If you find someone great, but I have no issues finding women. I just thought this was a good idea. I left feeling like I was being baited to spend money with the app🤷🏾‍♂️🏁
  • Great idea but bad execution Aug 6, 2021

    By Sabrin378
    I love the concept of connecting the Habesha diaspora but the app is severely flawed. It only lets you swipe through 10 profiles and has you waiting 24 hours for your next ten profiles. That’s absurd. No one has an attention span of 24 hours. Seriously, it’s super discouraging and makes people want to just delete the app. 12 hours is fine and most apps do that but 24!?!? Come on that’s trying to trap people into purchasing subscriptions lol
  • 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!
  • No match Jun 14, 2020

    By Kblistena
    Been using this for over a month. I even spent money to heart girls so they would notice I liked them. Won’t get another dollar out of me. It’s not a scam but I don’t think girls use this app. Or they’re getting too many likes... idk. Ladies go through your likes and like back a few dudes. Y’all killed this app. So what I matched you and your friend... y’all both look good and I don't know who I’ll like in person until we go on a date. Get out of your egos. Lol I can’t believe I though this would work.
  • Stop being money hungry May 16, 2020

    By @Hinsta_gram
    What was the point of this app? To monetize every aspect of it or to truly provide value to our habesha community? I’m a very successful habesha business man. I would be more than happy to help you folks make this app better or I will go create my own and create a better experience for our habesha community. Why are we given only 10 swipes including those that we swipe left on? Why do we have to pay for every little thing (Hearts/likes)?

    It’s a hype people, I’m right at the heart of Alexandria, DMV.... zero people in it with the maximum miles. Plus forces you to share with friends, if you don’t want to share the app then won’t allow you to use the app....forces you to give them your location all the time, if not you can’t use the app. They want your location not only when you use the app...all the time......even while your sleeping they want to know your location.... No thank you for me.

    The Jebena team deserves a 5 star rating for creating this much needed app. I didn’t encounter any bugs. It’s UI is friendly and does what it promises. Tries to help you find a match. Personally, Spending half of what you might spend on breakfast to meet your “better” half is not something to complain about. Jebena team, keep up the good work and I hope more people start using your wonderful product. Side note: fellas, I feel ya. Ladies try to give my habesha brothers a chance. If you like someone, make an effort to atleast have a convo.
