App’tive audience

U.S. Air Force Capt. Liaquat Ali, deputy director of AF Connect, speaks to Airmen about the Air Force Connect mobile app during the service’s Public Affairs Agency Digital Publishing Workshop, Aug. 8, 2018, at the Air National Guard training and education center in East Tennessee. Captain Ali’s team at the Pentagon have been rolling out the innovation, which allows both public and restricted-access (MyPay, email, AF link) communications on personal mobile devices. Their idea to pair mobile CAC readers with Airmen’s cell phones and tablets were among the finalists in the recent USAF Spark Tank competition. It has been lauded and approved by top leaders, including the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright in a July Facebook post. The free app is available to download. Captain Ali said that units AF-wide are implementing and customizing the app now and in the coming months. (U.S. Air National Guard photo/Master Sgt. Mike R. Smith)
