Soldier Spends Own Money to Develop Military iPhone App
Captain Springer has been testing his app in various situations and with several different types of vehicles and posts in order to ensure it's ready for combat. The officer told the Herald Sun that most soldiers have smartphones on the battlefield, but the capabilities of those devices are not being fully utilized. The military is looking into using smartphones for battle, but Captain Springer decided to jumpstart that effort by taking matters into his own hands. The app is currently awaiting approval from Apple, but, once it's approved, Captain Springer may start work on an iPad edition. Looks like Android device-toting soldiers will be left out in the cold.
