Just wanted to say great job on the practice test app, I don't get data roaming with my straight talk service so I can't access this website as often as I'd like. I wasn't able to complete the hazmat high road training before taking the test today, but did use the heck out of the practice app......and I nailed it with only one wrong on hazmat, and all correct on tanker!

Thanks for all the help!

Probably not. I'm not going to mess with apps too much. I'm going to focus on building everything right into the website in a way that it works well on all devices. For instance, the Practice Test Mobile App is nothing more than an Android-specific repackaging of the High Road Questions which are already built into the website and already work perfectly on every device out there. And by doing it that way I can make updates and improvements to the system which will just work without anyone having to download the entire app all over again.

Brett: Can't install the practice app. Says no eligible devices found. When I open the dialog box it shows my past three phones and when I select the current phone a Samsung GT-S7582L. I think it is saying it can't be installed i my devices country. But the dialog does not word wrap.

Can you please take a look at this? I would very much like to install the app.

Unfortunately there isn't anything I can do about that. That's a good example of why I don't want to mess with mobile apps. That exchange is happening between your phone and the App Store. I don't know if it's an old phone that doesn't support the software or what it is but there isn't anything I can do about that on my end.

You can bookmark this page instead - it's literally the exact same thing as the mobile app except you don't have to install it:

Thanks Brett:

It isn't an old phone bought last August and it is running Andriod 4.2.2. I was just wondering if you had set a USA only limitation on the app. I'll be moved back in a couple more weeks God willing and am already set up to get into Daly's Truck Driving School in Georgia. Was hoping to get a jump on the process... I'll use the link you provided.

Thanks for the reply.
