Remembrance Day. There’s an app for that
Tomorrow 11-11-11 is remembrance Day across Canada..the 92nd year that Canadians have paused to remember the sacrifices made by our veterans. Veterans Affairs Canada has created an app for your smartphone called Veterans Matter.
Available for free download for Android and iPhone Veterans Matter provides both a gateway to Government services for veterans as well as ways to celebrate Remembrance Day. You can locate an event near you, find nearby war cemeteries and share the app with friends.
We Remember a similar app for iPhone lets you find events and ceremonies across Canada, watch video from the Veterans Affairs Canada YouTube channel, read the Veterans Affairs Canada Facebook wall, and more. It is free from the App Store
There is also a Facebook app called Twibbons that enables you to wear a poppy on your Facebook and Twitter pages..I really like this one, check it out here.
