If you are fond of shopping and like finding what you need for the lowest prices, Joom might serve you well. It is a well-constructed application for quick online shopping that is offered free of charge.
Interface - 4/5
The app possesses a simple, well-organized list-style interface. It highlights all products that might be offered at a lower price. Users can also sort items by the particular interest or parameters, and the menu offers different categories of goods (e.g., clothing, accessories, toys, households, etc.) The learning algorithm of Joom is pretty good. Several small oddities are still present, but they are not critical.
Looking for a specific item frequently results in a list of prices: from affordable to rather low. It should be an alarming sign of the potentially poor quality of some things, but that is how it usually works on such platforms.
Content and Features - 4/5
Joom is a unified platform for wholesale purchasers with lists of products of various types and for different purposes that are currently on sale. The buyers obtain recommendations concerning their further purchases based on their interests, preferences, and earlier deals. The catalog with the available items and search option are the two fundamental features of Joom.
Other features of this app include the following.
Rating of the sellers. Users can review a full catalog of top sellers from the most trusted to sellers with the lowest level of credibility and worst feedback/reviews/ratings.
Relatively fast delivery. The service guarantees one of the quickest deliveries on the web, but it does not mean that you will always get your stuff on time. It depends on the seller, and the Joom cannot control them, unfortunately.
Warranties and refunds. The maximum delivery time is 75 days, according to the delivery policies of Joom. You may send a complaint or money-back request only after this period. On this platform, the solution is in favor of the buyer in 90% of the cases.
Usability - 4/5
Overall, the usability of Joom is similar to famous AliExpress. The primary feature that makes it look and function better than its main competitor is the well-designed and well-optimized app. Joom for mobile devices looks pretty good and convenient. The translations are much better too, while they simply drive people nuts when it comes to Aliexpress or eBay.
The catalog with products and sellers is easy to navigate. Simply choose categories you are interested in, and sort them the way you want (e.g., from the lowest to the highest price). The ordering process might be a bit time-consuming, but it is only for the first-time purchase during the registration.
Compatibility - 5/5
It is possible to download and set up this free shopping application on Android devices. Android compatibility varies with the device. As for Apple device owners, they should keep in mind that Joom requires at least iOS version 10.0. The app is compatible with such devices as iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
It is one of the applications that may seem too good to be true. The prices for many products seem too low, and often the quality of such goods is below the medium. However, if you choose the top sellers and ignore too attractive discounts, you will most probably get an item of good or high quality for a yummy price. This makes Joom a good option for shopping addicts.
