The popularity of smartphones and other mobile devices has changed the way we communicate, and the Fort Meade Public Affairs Office is taking advantage of those changes.

“Our society is very mobile. People aren’t tied to their desktop computers anymore,” said Jason Kelly, the PAO emerging media manager. “The enhanced mobile version of our website for smartphone users means it is even easier to get information about Fort Meade while away from desktop computers.”

Kelly came up with the idea of launching a mobile application for the Fort Meade website nearly two weeks ago and immediately began working on the project to design and test the app. The app seamlessly works on any smartphone with an Internet browser and was designed with a general mobile audience in mind.

Users can access the enhanced version of the website by going to www.ftmeade.army.mil from any smartphone. There are several informative topics to choose from the home page, such as the telephone directory, directions to post from the surrounding area, a calendar of upcoming events, the Freedom Inn Dining Facility’s menu, access to the weekly Soundoff! newspaper and social media sites.
