The solar eclipse may block the sun for a few minutes, but it doesn't stop us from making this app more awesome for you!
News articles now display all related photos, and the photos display their corresponding captions when you tap the "..." button on top of the photo. Simply drag left and right to scroll through a news article's related photos. Tap any photo to view it in fullscreen mode.
We've also updated the UI to be more media focused and modern looking for the following screens:
• news article
• photo detail
• video detail
• SEE ALL screen for news/photos/videos
Also added a sweet parallax effect when scrolling in the home screen.
Ratings and Reviews
Think of this app like a shared storage folder that pics and vids get thrown into. You don't need an account of any kind to access stuff. There is no naming convention, or intuitive usability of any kind. You only have the ability to sort "content" by service (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, etc.) and then the user has zero control of anything after this. No search. No identity. No content of worth.
I clicked on a link for a Change of Command, and it opened up a web browser where I could access the "live stream" event. The option was available to open it in the app, so I tried it... Nothing. Just went to the blank splash page and continued to be worthless.
What is the Point?
As a service member in the MOS that this app matters most to (CommStrat), I’m incredibly disappointed. Having to log on to a website through a browser in order to look up specific shoots you’ve been on or things you’re interested in can be a hassle, so when I found this app I thought I was going to be saved. That has NOT been the case. When I open the app I’m basically shown whatever they want me to see. I can’t search anything, and I have no control over what information I see apart from which service branch. Incredibly disappointing. I won’t be recommending this app to anybody in the foreseen future.
This is terrible. Much like the website, the search function is mostly worthless and it’s a pain to use. I hoped this would be an easier way to download content. But there is NO way to download content onto your phone. This is content the public owns, too. You can only share links. And the links are terrible for the viewer. I wish I could give it zero stars. Military units are being misled that their content is getting used when they upload to DVIDS.
