JumpForward Traveler

Any Shark Tank fans out there? If so, you'll see some BlackBerry-related action on tonight's show. And if you've never checked out before, maybe tonight's the night. Here's the word:

JumpForward Traveler, a BlackBerry app, will be featured in tonight's season finale of ABC's Shark Tank at 8pm EST! The JumpForward app simplifies the college recruiting process for both high school athletes and college coaches, and makes sure that coaches play by the rules when communicating with perspective players:

  • High School Athletes
    • Provides high school students and their parents with the ability to search for the contact information of 2,600 colleges and 55,000 college coaches.
    • Tracks and organizes the communications between athletes and coaches.
  • College Athletic Departments
    • Allows coaches to read and manage recruiting contact information directly on their BlackBerry.
    • Features a patent-pending technology that proactively stops coaches' phone calls, text messages and emails that violate recruiting rules and regulations.

For more information on the JumpForward Traveler app, please visit BlackBerry App World.
