The U.S. Army Reserve Command’s first mobile app, dubbed the Double Eagle App, recently went live. The new app will link Reservists and their families with others using the technology in their immediate area.

"This app gives us the ability to see ourselves and to take care of each other,” said Chief of Army Reserves Lt. Gen. Charles D. Luckey in a video presentation explaining how soldiers can download the capability.

Luckey said the app allows users to support one another by giving them information on the locations of other members of the Army Reserve team. The app also allows users to message a group like in GroupMe or WhatsApp.

“I know if I am in some location at some moment in time, I know there are soldiers right there in that area and I can reach out to them, contact them if I need help, that kind of stuff,” he said. "This application, whether it's on your iPhone or your droid or your Samsung or whatever it is, is your link to all cool stuff inside America's Army Command."

The website gives users a tutorial on how they can download the app, which also gives them access to command information videos. It also provides users with tips on how to prepare for the new Army Combat Fitness Test, which will replace the current test in October 2020. 

Installation information is also available via the app.
