The U.S. Army Reserve has created the Double Eagle App for Army Reserve leaders, Soldiers, Family members, and Department of the Army Civilians to allow for up-to-date information about the Army Reserve.
With the Army Reserve's Double Eagle App (DE App) you can:
*Users can refer prospective Future Soldiers to a recruiter through the DE App. By activating the "Refer a Friend" feature button in the app, the user will be taken to an informational resource about opportunities in the Army Reserve, and then to Army Reserve recruiters through their fillable contact form for follow-up recruiting.
*Share your location and find other Soldiers, Family members, DA civilians, and Volunteers. You can disseminate information about upcoming Family Programs meetings and events.
*Create or message a group for your own team.
*Send push notification messages to user created groups, or structured discussion boards. This allows you to communicate with your group in an open or closed format to provide information or schedule events.
*Emergency Safety Check feature enables leaders or administrators to reach Soldiers by area or assignment.
*'Check-in’ when you arrive at a new duty station, exercise, operational event, Family Readiness function or other event.
*When a Soldier arrives on the ground at a training event, they will receive a specific information push notification “Check In” with command information.
*Whether general messaging or Double Eagle Six Traffic information is blasted to the Soldier, a range of multi-media can be sent, including photos and videos form Lt. Gen. Charles, D. Luckey, Chief of Army Reserve and Commanding General, U.S. Army Reserve Command.
*Compete in Challenges among a large group or select few Soldiers.
*Create and participate in live polling that will show performance metrics.
*Access Army Reserve Resources as a “One Stop Shop” using the “Resources” tab.
Why You Should Download the Double Eagle App:
*Leaderbook - Leaders will be able to manage information, message and send out alerts based on subordinate Soldier data.
*Soldiers will be able to utilize the “Resources” capability to access resources including self-help, mental health, veteran assistance POCs, and training reference information.
*Soldiers will be able to access discussion boards based on general staff functions (G-staffs), Major Commands, and Soldier Support systems (Family Programs, Suicide Prevention, SHARP) will provide professional discussion, push information including standards, training guidance, and resources.

Ratings and Reviews
Great Idea, App needs improvement
Recommend adding a function to grade the ACFT in addition to the APFT. Also, more importantly, I would add another star to my review if the app would actually notify me when someone comments in one of my channels. If notifications actually worked it would be a great resource to communicate with the unit. I’ve enabled notifications in my phone settings but it still doesn’t work.
5 stars for initiative
This is a brand new app, there will be crashes and glitches to come but this enables line leaders to engage their soldiers remotely, and conveniently in a way that has been eclipsed by civilian communication methods. So much reserve soldier management has spilled over into using public solutions which are more convenient than enterprise email, and social media left a gaping and vulnerable hole to be filled. This is the first step in filling that hole by giving young tech savvy soldiers a convenient way to find information and be engaged by their junior line leaders. I don’t know about anyone else but this is a huge plus for my Company element.
I’m happy about the initiative and the creation of this app. It’s still a little buggy. It won’t let you upload a profile pic. The tabs at the bottom for switching to channel etc get misaligned and covered by the page of the tab that you’re in. Over-all, it’s better than nothing. Glad USAR is moving forward into the technical age and finally trying to keep up with soldiers via the one device they always have on them.
