Mobile Apps

Two mobile applications of interest to veterans on-the-go have recently been created.  First, VA has created a mobile site, http://m.va.gov.  It is designed to provide information on the VA – such as news releases, facility locations, suicide prevention awareness, and a gravesite locator – in a format that is easy to navigate on a mobile device. 

Additionally, the DoD has created an iPhone application that helps military personnel and veterans handle stressful circumstances using breathing exercises.  The App, called iBreathe, will be available free to the general public in the iTunes Store after January 2011.  Researchers are working on a version that will be compatible with the Android platform, as well.
