I searched for it on my iPhone but could not find it. \:\( What is the "keyword" that I need to type in to query for it? My service is through AT&T, does that matter?

And, the 2013 license Sales start today as well. When it was demonstrated last week, it looked pretty simple to buy a license through this app. There is a $3.00 internet surcharge, but that may be cheaper than gas if you were having to make a special trip to a license vendor to get one.

The link is supposed to be http://www.gotwra.org

I can't get it to work, either, so hopefully somebody on here can link you in. I have a test version on my phone, and I'll check with my IT guy in the morning when we teach a session at our officer's in-service on it to see what I need to do to make that one live.

We worked hard last week on getting it ready to be rolled out today. Let me know if there are any issues so I can get our IT folks on them if/when they pop up.

Thanks Steve. I went to this link and scanned the barcode and the app appeared to load, but it seems as if it is loading through the internet, rather than downloading an app that will be permanently on my iPhone for me to click each time I want to use it. Let me play around with it some more and I will follow up with you if I have any further questions.

Andy,

The app is through the internet and will required wifi or 3G service to work. There is a box to hit when it comes up on your phone that will put an access icon on your screen so you don't have to hunt through bookmarks. On my iphone it is the center icon on the bottom that is a square with an arrow.

My IT folks will LOL at the thought of Steve helping with anything involving a computer or smart phone. To say they have to baby me through the processess is a gross understatement. I frequently remind them that I was part of the last generation that got through high school/college physics using a slide rule. I envy the way the computer stuff is intuitive for younger folks.

I'm heading over to our officer in-service at TLETA in just a minute. I won't be around a computer all afternoon. I'll try to check back in when I get in tonight to see if any issues have cropped up.

I love the new site! Although an actual app would have been nice, i'm sure the issues involved with updating on a regular basis would mean submitting updates to the app store constantly. This way they can update the site anytime they need to. Well done TWRA!

You don't have any records in the system at this point. The diary will start with the 2013 turkey season .

I assumed there would be a database migration of the current data.

It is my understanding that there are space limitations on the mobile application that limit the amount of data that it will store. We have been promised that the system will store the kill records starting with the 2013 spring turkey season for up to three years. We have some hopes that can be extended.

They are working on some instructions to add to the App article on the droid shortcut. They hope to have it up by the end of the day.

Awesome. No more waiting to get home to the computer.

I assume that you will just have to print the permit kill tag later?

The check-in information will automatically be saved in your hunter's diary and will be there for three years. You will need to be able to show a taxidermist or meat processor or TWRA personnel after the check-in that they procedure was completed. The phone diary will meet those requirements. However, to guard against not having cell service or having a drained battery, it may be worth taking the 30 seconds and jot the information including the confirmation number on a harvest log.

But, if you are sure you will have cell service and a working phone, there is no need to fill out or print anything.

I have a link on my home screen too now. Once you bookmark it then hit the button on the left and there's a link to create the shortcut. This is how I just did it on my razr maxx.
