From the palm of your hand, find out what’s going on at Edwards

new-media1Members of the Edwards community have a new tool to let them know what’s going on around base.

The My Military Communities is a mobile application that centralizes all of Edwards’ community events, organizations and services right in your pocket for smartphones.

MyMC2 lists activities happening on base as well as a directory to all Edwards units with official Facebook pages.

The app also has direct call buttons to the Airmen Against Drunk Driving designated driver program and the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator.

The app is free and is available through both the Android Market and Apple’s App Store.

Smartphone users can go to their respective app stores and search for “MyMC2″ and install it. Once installed, Team Edwards members can select Edwards from a drop down list (or select another base to find out what’s going on there if you so wish).

To quickly download MyMC2, QR codes are available for both Android and iPhone smartphones in the photo section to the right.

Developed by the 375th Communication Support Squadron web application development team at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., the app pulls event listings from organizational Facebook pages that are officially associated with Edwards AFB and consolidates them into one place.

The app can be downloaded onto iPads and tablets as well, however the phone functions will not work.

If you have any questions or need support please visit www.facebook.com/mymc2support.
