    When you fight under the US Military, you get nothing but the best, and that’s why they have an Android app and even their own Market for Android. Just last week we wrote about the army beginning to use the Android platform for the war based communication needs. Now Wired got a first look at their own app store, and wow, it seems the army has a few developers working with them and hopefully Angry bird Army Edition makes its way to their store.
    Now some of you might ask why they need their own app store. Well Wired says it’s all about security, they don’t want security issues that might put them at risk, like maybe Skype not doing their job right and other things. The other reason is that they don’t have time to go through all the 200,000+ applications available, so they just made a way to put only relevant applications on the hands of the people in the front line.

    P.S. Aren’t you glad that their phones aren’t always tracking them like some other phones have been said to do and are being sued for doing so?
