Army news now available on iPhone.

Soldiers and others can now read the latest Army news on their iPhones, thanks to a new application by the team that developed www. army.mil.

The new iPhone application was launched in December, and is available for free from the iTunes application store or by visiting www.army.mil/mo bile.

"The Army developed the iPhone application to put U.S. Army stories, images and videos in the hand of users,' said Patricia Downs, deputy director of the Army's Online and Social Media Division. "It allows Soldiers and their family members to save their favorite content and to share it over Facebook, Twitter and e-mail. The application also offers several entertainment and informational sections."

The application provides users Army news headlines and allows readers to choose which news feeds they want to receive.

Also available on the iPhone is the daily "Stand-To!" which is a compendium of news and information for Army leaders. In addition, a complete archive of Soldiers magazine, as far back as 2002, is available through the iPhone application.

The iPhone's wide screen and multimedia capabilities don't go to waste just reading text either. The new application provides access to both Army video and still imagery, including content hosted on the Army's Flickr feed and YouTube page. And for those who want to relive the greatest moments of Soldiers Radio News, podcasts of the show are also available through the application.

The application also serves as a digital pocket almanac and includes information about the Army.
