DoD plans its own mobile app store

The Defense Department is just weeks away from launching its own internal app store for DoD users. And along with the store, the Pentagon is promising a faster securing approval process to bring more consumer mobile devices into military use. The new store is part of DoD’s first ever department-wide framework for mobile devices, being led by the Defense Information Systems Agency. DISA says the store will take a federated approach, and let the military services aggregate their work on mobile applications all in one place.
