PENSACOLA, Fla. (NNS) -- A new mobile application which provides a direct access point for approved unclassified U.S. Navy mobile apps was released March 16.
The Navy App Locker is an app version of the U.S. Navy's associated website, www.applocker.navy.mil/ and provides Navy Sailors, civilians, and family members a central location to view mobile applications, review detailed information about Navy-developed apps, and have streamlined access to their device's appropriate app store. The Navy App Locker assures users the apps they are downloading were developed by the Department of the Navy and contain relevant, up-to-date information.
The Navy App Locker App can be downloaded at no cost via Google Play or iTunes. Users can search by "navy app locker" or "seawarrior."
Both the Navy App Locker app and associated website act as a gateway to download the Navy's mobile applications, taking the user straight to the specific app requested to download on Google Play or iTunes.
The Navy's mobile apps are a great resource for annual required training, career tools and education resources. There are currently 18 mobile applications searchable on the site. Five of those mobile applications provide access to complete required annual General Military Training (GMT).
All apps located in the app locker are bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and designed to work on personal devices outside of the NMCI domain. They can be downloaded at no cost via Google Play or iTunes. Users can search by the app name or "seawarrior."
If a command would like an official Navy mobile application added to the Navy App Locker, please contact the Navy App Locker Team at firstname.lastname@example.org
The U.S. Navy Sea Warrior Program (PMW 240) produced the app and Tracen Technologies Inc., a company which specializes in integrated mobile and web solutions, was the software developer.
