VoIP bloggers are all abuzz about something called JaJah. Its is supposed to be a Skype Killer – except it doesn’t look like it can kill anything. Skype Journal is showing some skepticism – but I think its like April Fool’s Joke in June! There is some newspaper clipping on their site, except no name of the newspaper. (Hmmm!) There are no technical details available, and everything seems so sketchy. I am going to reserve judgement. I think some security experts should check out the software as public service!

  1. Ya, for a supposed “Communications Guru” and “Legendary Free Thinker” you would think there would be at least a SINGLE google reference to this guy.

  4. Seems like it does work though. I was able to call my cell phone number for free. The service gives you 5 Euro free calling. I have not been able to get the Skype calling feature to work though.

  5. [...There are no technical details available,...]

    You should have had a look at
    http://www.jajah.com/en/features_frank.asp (where – of course – you can find all technical details of the product)
    before you post such incorrect statements.

  6. For me jajah works very well. It has lots of features Skype does NOT have (for example: SMS to mobile phones(!), SIP, IAX, and and and) and has the coolest interface ever seen in a Webphone. Also, their rates to landline and mobile phones are lower than Skype´s are.

    jajah will overcome Skype – like Goggle did it with Altavista & Co – I am sure.

  7. True, my research on this strange Watamba figure had no results as well. However, I tried the tool and it was quite a surprise. My first impression was: nice and simple. After calling a friend on landline and talking to a Skype buddy I am really impressed. The voice quality is just brilliant and the video is huge. Somehow it reminded me on my first visit to Google some years ago …
    It is only a pitty that it is not availabe for Macs.

  8. The Joke That Was Jajah

    A few days back I read about Jajah in a note written by Phil Wolff in Skype Journal. Based on that, when I visited Jajah’s website, some of the claims were outlandish. And when I read Om’s entry, I felt…

  9. Buzz and criticism

    It’s always good to receive positive feedback like we did. But sometimes it’s also valuable to receive negative feedback, because you learn where you have to get better. That’s why we listen very carefully to the more critical comments on the web.

  10. I also tried jajah and I think it’s great. The features are simple and you’ll find a lots of them. Skype & Co don’t offer such many gimmicks :-)

    Have a try… it’s worth…
