When I launched BoostApps 2 1/2 years ago most Boost users were using the iDEN network. The Send to Phone feature made it easy to send apps to the iDEN phones. Today most of you are using CDMA phones or non-Boost phones which means you have to download the apps from the mobile version of the site using your phone browser.
I’m working on a series of changes that I hope will make the mobile site easier to use. The first new feature, “Jump Codes for All Apps” is now available. This is for anyone who ever used their PC to find an app on BoostApps and then had trouble finding the same app on the mobile site. To make that process easier, all games and apps on BoostApps now have a Jump Code, which is displayed on the app’s page in the desktop version of BoostApps.
Here’s how to use the new feature:
1. On the BoostApps PC site find an app you like and look for the Jump Code. It’s at the bottom of the post (circled in the image above).
2. Go to boostapps.com with your phone browser and click the “Enter Jump Code” link just below the page header (image near left).
3. On the next page enter the Jump Code in the text box (image far left) and press the “Jump” button which you take you to the app’s download page.
4. Click the JAD link near the bottom of the app page to download and install the app.
Unlike the Jump Codes generated by the Universal App Loader, which expire in one hour, these new Jump Codes for permanent apps on the site do not expire. So you can share the jump codes with your friends and in emails, texts and online.
