Are you having problems signing customers up with the Jump app?

Some partners have experienced problems signing up their customers with the Jump app and the Skinny team has asked us to inform them of any issues in case there are things that can be fixed in the back end. With so many varieties of smartphones and operating systems it is impossible for any app to cover all models. Most app developers do try to ensure that their apps are compatible with older models, but there is a limit. I have just tried by old iPhone 5 and when I try to download the Jump app it says: “requires IoS 14.0 or later”. When I google to find out what IoS is on my phone, I discover:

So the moral of the story is that if your customers have phones that are over 7 years old, then the Jump app probably won’t work.
