Last year’s Apps for Army competition is set to evolve into a servicewide applications store that would let soldiers download apps straight to their work computers, and possibly even to their mobile devices.
The Army Marketplace, as it’s dubbed, will start of with roughly a dozen apps from last year’s challenge and will grow as the marketplace breeds new app ideas, Spencer Ackerman reports for Danger Room.
The Army is looking to sidestep the current, lengthy software development and deployment process by using social media to allow users to share their needs and collaboratively develop new apps.
