The U.S. Army Reserve will be releasing the Double Eagle App for Army Reserve leaders, Soldiers, Family members, and Department of the Army Civilians to allow for up-to-date information about the Army Reserve.
The Double Eagle App will allow for:
• Users can create or message groups based on geolocation results, inviting other Army Reserve Soldiers to events or social gatherings.
• User can ‘check-in’ when arriving at a new duty station, exercise, operational event, FRG function or other event.
• Whether general messaging or Double Eagle Six Traffic information is blasted to the Soldier, a range of multi-media can be sent, including photos and videos form Lt. Gen. Charles, D. Luckey, Chief, of Army Reserve and U.S. Army Reserve Command commanding general.
• Users can compete in Challenges among a large group or select few Soldiers.
• Users can create or participate in live polling that will show performance metrics.

Frequently Asked Questions
The News Feed of the Double Eagle App is the resource for Army Reserve articles and polls. The articles are visible to the general public, but only select Soldiers have the ability to upload new articles and only account holders can see and participate in polls. The primary purpose of polls is to engage Soldiers directly around particular issues.
The Channels feature is the messaging tool of the Double Eagle App that allows Soldiers to communicate directly with other Soldiers, unit leaders and important resources such as Family Readiness and Suicide Prevention. This will allow Soldiers to connect with people they may not have the opportunity to meet or speak to otherwise, fostering a greater feeling of community.
The Nearby feature aims to connect Soldiers to other Soldiers and resources within a set radius by allowing them to opt-in to share a general location using the app. Locations are generalized within 6 to 10 miles and the app does not store location information, provide directions or share it with any other applications, ensuring the safety and security of Soldiers. Some potential uses for this feature include messaging another Soldier to meet for a run, networking with other Soldiers and Families in the area and finding and accessing key resources when immediate support is required.
The Challenge tool is a new, exciting tool to prepare Soldiers physically for the demands of service. It allows Soldiers to take part in fitness challenges put forth by the Army Reserve and test their physical Readiness. Soldiers can also use the Army Physical Fitness Test calculator to measure their fitness against the Army Physical Fitness Test. These tools take the guesswork out of physical preparation and provide a new and exciting way for Soldiers to track and improve their physical fitness without relying on third-party resources. Additionally, Soldiers can compete against each other in challenges, adding another level of motivation to train.
Aside from increasing Readiness and connecting Soldiers, the Double Eagle App has two additional use options for those not in the Army Reserve: guest access and family & friend accounts.
