JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. --

315th Airlift Wing Public Affairs recently performed an overhaul of its mobile app to make it more compatible with mobile devices and offer more useful features.

The now nearly two-year-old app currently offers tools that are built into the application instead of pointing users to web-based products such as the wing’s web news feed, or online biographies – something that originally presented inconvenient or inconsistent layout, now is designed specifically to fit your smart phone or tablet.

Some of the apps key features now include:

An alert message inbox notification icon at the top of the apps home screen

A new mobile device friendly weather app within our app

 An RSS format news feed that is easy to browse

A much more user friendly UTA schedule

An easy access button to the Commander’s Inspection Program giving our wing mission, vision and commanders intent

A button that gives you quick mobile biographies to wing leadership

Self-contained fact sheets within the app

A brand new button for Airman and Family Readiness that gives you access convenient resources including a deployment checklist

A new button giving important resources for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program

 A direct link to the Wingman Toolkit

A new Air Force Fitness Program button, puts charts and information about appealing fitness assessments conveniently in your hands.

The ability to send a photo to be considered for use on the Wing’s Facebook page

And other useful items

We are also working with our Aerospace Medicine officials to add a button for medical profiles and other related information. Look for that later this year.

“As commander, one of my favorite features on the 315th Airlift Wing app is the ability for me to send out emergency push notifications to inform my folks of weather or other emergencies or events that might impact the base or a drill weekend,” said Col. Gregory Gilmour, 315th Airlift Wing commander. “This app is a real game changer! It really came in handy during the last hurricane evacuations we had here in the Lowcountry.”

“I’m glad that we were able to make the app a lot friendlier for people’s smart phones and tablets. Besides our Reservists and civilian employees, I encourage their family members to download the app so that they can stay in the loop on things,” Gilmour added.

The wing app is free to download from your device’s app store by searching for 315th Airlift Wing. If you already have our app, you do not need to do anything as the update is automatic.

In order to take advantage of the push notifications, your ability to send a photo or to contact us the app requires standard app permissions. It’s important to note that at all time you control what information is shared with the Wing through the app.

If you have any questions about or suggestions for the 315th AW app, please feel free to send us a note through the app, or via e-mail at 315aw.pa-1@us.af.mil.
