Canada’s Veterans’ Week & Remembrance Day Go Mobile on the iPhone
MindSea Development Inc., located in Halifax Nova Scotia, developers of several popular mobile apps including Pocketbooth and Transit to Go have just launched a new iPhone application.
“Halifax is home to a large contingent of active and retired armed forces and reserve veterans, including wartime merchant marines” says President & Founder Bill Wilson. “We are proud to help honour all veterans especially given that our hometown of Halifax has played such a historic and strategic role in past and current world events.”
The App, which has been developed for Veterans Affairs Canada, will support ongoing and increased participation in Veterans’ Week (Nov. 5-11) and Remembrance Day activities by delivering a variety of information to iPhone users. Once installed the app offers up-to-date GPS supported location search for events and ceremonies nationally, social media feeds from Facebook and YouTube resources. Users will also be able to interactively share their own individual contributions to the Veteran’s Affair’s national “How will you remember” campaign.
“The MindSea development team really enjoyed working on this project, which provides an innovative way of linking both younger and older Canadians with veteran history and information on the contributions that veterans have made to society. ” says Wilson. The app is available for download in both Canadian official languages from the Apple App store.
