    SAN DIEGO, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Using a mobile phone to access the
 Internet has just become a whole lot easier.  With JmpAT (pronounced JUMP-AT),
 users enter the first few letters of a company's name, website or business
 category to access the site.  JmpAT.com, a new service of eMediacy, Inc., is
 available today on millions of wireless devices worldwide.
     JmpAT provides a simple solution to a critical problem.  "Trying to use a
 cellular phone's 10-digit keypad to enter a website name is a nightmare of
 keystrokes, symbols and frustration," said Sanford P. Weisman, eMediacy's
 President and CEO.  "With JmpAT, users can access sites in a common-sense way,
 by entering the first few letters of the name they associate with the
 company."
     For example, users entering the wireless version of the Barnes and Noble
 Books site, "mobile.bn.com," would have required about 26 keystrokes on a
 cellular phone.  With JmpAT, typing the digits corresponding to "bn" (2-6),
 "Barn" (2-2-7-6), or even "book" (2-6-6-5) would allow you to access the site.
 To access United Airlines, users can type in "UA" (8-2), "UAL" (8-2-5) or
 "UNI" (8-6-4).
     "Users will be able to 'jump at' most websites with 5 keystrokes or less,
 without having to memorize anything," said Nigel Waites, eMediacy's Chief
 Technology Officer.  "And JmpAT is easy to find as well.  In most cases, you
 simply go to the 'enter site' selection on your browser and enter 5-6-7-2-8 in
 either alpha or numeric mode."
     JmpAT is a complete site management interface.  In addition to rapidly
 finding websites, JmpAT automatically displays the last eight (8) websites
 visited and allows users to easily list and access their favorite sites.
     JmpAT is compatible with any Wireless Access Protocol (WAP) compatible
 device, including cellular phones on the Sprint PCS, Verizon, Cingular, AT&T
 and Nextel networks, providing access to millions of potential users.  Over
 100 of the most popular WAP sites, including Microsoft, Amazon.com, Yahoo, and
 AOL-Time Warner are already registered with JmpAT, representing the vast
 majority of all wireless Internet page views.
     Site owners can control the amount of visibility their site receives, with
 registration fees starting at $50.00 a year.  "The challenging process of
 entering mobile URL's has forced site owners into expensive and sometimes
 exclusive deals with carriers in order to have their sites listed on a
 carrier's home page," said Weisman.  "Users see a small selection of sites,
 with the rest of the mobile Internet out of reach.  JmpAT removes this
 artificial barrier to mobile Internet usage by providing site owners access to
 users at a price any site can afford."  Registration is handled through a
 simple, secure, process on the jmpat.com website.
     More information regarding JmpAT and eMediacy, Inc. is available on their
 respective websites, jmpat.com and emediacyinc.com.
