Navy App Adds Push Notifications Functionality

The official U.S. Navy App added new features that will help Sailors be the first to get important stories and leadership messages.

The two main new features are push notifications and "My News Locker."

Here are four things you need to know about the new and improved Navy App:

1. The "My News Locker" feature allows you to save stories, photos or videos to build a reference library.

For example, if you see something on the Career Intermission Pilot Program or a story explaining step-by-step instructions on how to transfer your GI Bill benefits to dependents, you could save the story and refer back to it as needed.

2. Push notifications automatically send alerts when there are breaking news items posted to Navy.mil-whether it's advancement results or the latest on tuition assistance, Sailors with push notifications enabled will be the first to know.

3. Feedback is critical to the success of both Navy.mil and the Navy App. Email usnavyappfeedback@navy.mil with your questions and recommendations.

4. You can download the App to your smartphone and tablet by searching your operating system's App store.
