Why should I use Myjabba instead of other similar web applications?
You don’t need to. We set this site up because we felt that other sites were too clinical and the character limitation was frustrating. We did not think others would change their set up just for us, consequently we set up this site to give a better visual feel, more flexibility and by limiting entries to 60 days we hope to keep the content fresh.
