Military.com is a news source for those any actively serving military member, veteran, military family, or civilian interested in the most up-to-date military news. This source goes far beyond publishing news on current military events. It serves as a guide on topics such as benefits, veteran jobs, military family counseling, and more. This iPhone and iPad app serves as a robust resource for just about anyone connected to or interested in military matters. Unlike serving in the military, the app comes free of cost.
The Military.com app is a full-blown resource for all things military. For starters, the ‘News’ section reads like an actual online newspaper. Headlines appear relating to current events overseas and on domestic soil. Feature stories highlighting military heroes or matters that affect soldiers or their families appear on a regular basis. Photos and videos are provided as compliments to longer stories and as stand-alone media pieces. But aside from being a prime military news source, the app offers more than a half-dozen other sections to assist those who are serving, have previously served, or are directly impacted by a family member who is serving.
Extra sections include information on military benefits, joining the military, military education, veteran jobs, money management, and spousal support. There is even an ‘Off Duty’ section for those who need a break from the military overload and check out which TV shows are worth checking out and what bands are shooting up the carts.
A Virtual Handbook
This app has mustered up all the support that could possibly be found in a military resource. Though information and news resources can only go so far to fill the needs of service men and women, this app has a huge head-start on other resources out there. As far as usage is concerned, the app is extremely easy to navigate. Browse by section and view photos and videos with just a single tap.
Curiously enough, most articles are well-written, but poorly spaced out. Instead of breaking news up into short paragraphs like most newspapers and magazines, Military.com tends to run text together in a single long block. This app is also lacking the ability to share articles via social media outlets, a feature many reviewers have cried out for.
As a military resource and news outlet, the Military.com app is an incredibly useful and complete hub of information. From breaking news to feature stories to information on military education and benefits, the iPhone or iPad app really covers it all. It is easy to navigate and viewing photos and videos are flawless. If developers added the ability to share articles, photos and videos through social media, one of the only missing pieces to this app would be instantly filled.
