US Army launches Army Software Marketplace app catalog
Everyone’s got an app store these days and the U.S. Army is no exception - the beta versions of an iOS and Android Army Software Marketplace app catalogs for the military have been officially deployed. There are over a dozen applications for smartphones and tablets improving military training, and the promise is for at least as many to come in the near future.

The titles come with detailed descriptions and screenshots, but there’s no feedback section.

"The Apps Marketplace is at the center of Army efforts to radically reduce the time to deliver applications across the force. This prototype is a first step in establishing and exercising new submission and approval processes that will eventually enable Army members, organizations and third-party developers to release applications for Army-wide distribution," CIO Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence explained.

So what are exactly the apps that soldiers can download? Soldier View tops the list and it’s an application allowing to file and view recent reports on a topographical map of the area. There are also apps helping soldiers locate water wells and training guides.

The Army has been pushing an effort for soldiers to use Android devices and has even modified smartphones making them more secure and less prone to attacks. It’s definitely good to see military personnel trained to operate smartphones which could turn out life-saving in combat.

Like strapping bombs to mentally handicapped women and children in the name of Allah isn't killing innocent people? What about the bombs when they go off? These bombs in a lot of cases are not meant for US troops but for people that don't follow the same sect of Islam or Islam at all. How many other cases where you hear of people blowing them selves and killing many innocent people just because they do not believe Islam or even the same sect of Islam? I'm not say there hasn't been US soldiers that haven't killed innocent people, but not like how we are seeing from "the religion of peace". Maliciously killing of innocent people to spread fear and terror. Can't convert them blow em up.

lol. watch more of your liar media. about of suicide bombers we have caught are schizophrenic boys and some are hindus.

Killing any innocent human being is forbidden in islam,

by the way, about 3000 thousand people have died in pk in suicide bombings till date. 75k are killed by Alchol every year in US. so. think how badly are you brainwashed by this satanic media.

Allah is God. the same God that christians, jews etc beleive in. who does not have a son and does not have a father. who is uncreated and is unseen. who is not a stone, not the sun, not the moon, not anything wich we see. because what we see is all his creation :-)

@drahmad: "Killing any innocent human being is forbidden in Islam". What do you mean by innocent? According to the Koran unbelievers are not innocent. No one is saying our Media aren't liars. The same God? Would the same God command these things on his children? Saying he is the same God takes credit from the other religion because Islam came last. Maybe at one point it was based of God but that time has long passed. Once you create a new religion the whole same God thing kinda goes out the window. No one is denying that alcohol doesn't kill people. What you talking about? It's completely different thing. In all the ways that people die from alcohol is not the same as someone killing others for not believing in Islam. You say I’m brain washed I say you’re using Al-Takeyya.

• Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. - Sura 2:98
• On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. - Sura 2:161
• Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. - 2:191
• Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. - 2:216
• If you should die or be killed in the cause of Allah, His mercy and forgiveness would surely be better than all they riches they amass. If you should die or be killed, before Him you shall all be gathered. - 3:157-8
• Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil. - 4:76
• But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever you find them. - 4:89
• Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah's religion reigns supreme - 8:39
• Allah will humble the unbelievers. Allah and His apostle are free from obligations to idol-worshipers. Proclaim a woeful punishment to the unbelievers. - 9:2-3
• Fight unbelievers who are near to you. 9:123
• Unbelievers are enemies of Allah and they will roast in hell. - 41:14

Want more? There is so much more it’s not funny, but you know that... Now what are you going to say. The translation is off because it is in English and it is only correct in Arabic. Then I would ask. So do all terrorist read the Koran in English? People are reading the Koran in Arabic and acting on. Islam is the religion of peace once all other religions (even if you’re nonreligious), are wiped off the earth.
