AFLINK mobile app keeps people connected to everything Air Force

FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. (AFNS) -- Staying connected and keeping up with the latest news and information has never been easier for America's Airmen.

On the Air Force's 65th birthday, Sept. 18, officials announced that the service has released a mobile application designed to keep Airmen, families, retirees, recruits and the public informed about the latest happenings around the force.

The AFLINK mobile application for phones and tablet computers aggregates up-to-the-minute content including headlines from the official Air Force website, Airman magazine, Air Force Blue Tube, the AF Week in Photos, Air Force Inventory and ceremonial music from the Air Force Band; it also allows sharing through Facebook, Twitter and more.

"There are so many apps out there these days that it's tough to choose which ones to keep on your phone or iPad," said Airman 1st Class Zach Vucic, a beta tester who reviewed the app during development. "It's always updated with the latest Air Force news, awesome photos and new videos. Whether you are already in the Air Force or even thinking about joining up, you need this app."

AFLINK is free and available now for download. It is presented in several languages on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android. It is accessible worldwide via those online stores so that Airmen stationed overseas can also stay connected.

"This handy app will change the way Airmen and anyone interested in the U.S. Air Force will get the latest news and factual information about the service," said James Pritchett, deputy director of Air Force Production. "One of the most useful features is the Air Force Inventory section. It not only has beautiful photographs of the aircraft and other Air Force hardware, it also gives you historical reference and up-to-date details about each piece of equipment.

"In the past, we had to wait a year for publication of an annual almanac or wait until you could get to a computer to get all of this info in one place," Pritchett said. "Today, AFLINK provides all this information at your fingertips, wherever you are in the world."
