Military members can connect with Robins AFB with mobile phone

We can do an ever-growing number of amazing things on mobile phones today, but one mobile application just came out that is geared specifically toward military members and their families at Robins AFB
and other bases across the nation.
My Military Communities (MyMC2), is the first program in the Air Force that allows users to access a list of every event at their base. The app may help military families who recently moved make themselves at home in their new communities.
The app was developed at Scott AFB
by the 375th Communication Support Squadron's web application development team. It works by pulling event listings from the Facebook pages of organizations officially associated with the base.
Opening up the free app on an Android or iPhone, users see a main page that lists the next five events at their particular base, and can expand the search to see other upcoming events by narrowing or expanding the search by organization or event type.
The app may also be helpful during military travel
, since users can see what types of events are going on at bases they are visiting or passing through.
