  1. I tried to have this sent as an sms message from the Palm website but it didn’t work. Can you offer any suggestions? I work for JTA and, if I can get the app’ to work on my phone, we may place a link on our website so others can use it to.

    Please help ASAP.

    1. Forgive me for asking, but I am assuming that you have a Palm Pre or a Palm Pixi, right? If yes, then visit http://bit.ly/JTAWebOSApp on your phone. It will take you to the App Catalog. If you don’t have a Pre or a Pixi, then unfortunately, you can’t use the app. It is only for Palm WebOS devices. After I finish this one, I’ll start working on an Android and iPhone version.

      I added a shortcut on this site. You can go to http://rayhollister.com/jta and it will take you to the app catalog.

      UPDATE: I just tried it on my Pre and it gave me an error message. Try it again; Palm may be updating the App Catalog.

  2. If you can get one up for iPhone, that would be wonderful. You already totally rock for doing this! Thank you! The closest I have to a JTA app is downloading the schedule .pdfs into iBooks.
