Airmen from Andrews AFB create inauguration app
The Reading (Pa.) Eagle
Christopher Bevins, an Air Force staff sergeant, created a cellphone application to help people navigate Monday's presidential inauguration.
The program, Inauguration, is a free application that compiles news and other material related to the 57th presidential inauguration from a variety of official sources.
The program is available at itunes.apple.com.
It collects real-time updates and contains a map of the inaugural parade route. It also automatically orients the map based on the user's location and gives information about medical stations, road closures and walking routes.
The application will provide a live video stream from CNN during the inauguration.
Bevins, 34, is stationed at Andrews Air Force Base, Md. He created the program with Senior Airman Daniel Burkhardt. Bevins and Burkhardt are among hundreds of military personnel providing support during the inauguration.
