Hello and welcome. It might seem like everyone’s lost in their smartphones these days, but with so many informative and useful mobile apps, it’s hard not to spend hours looking at your cell screen. And while there are plenty of entertaining programs perfect for down time, there are also a number of apps that serve as helpful resources for education and communication.

As a current soldier or veteran, there are a few must-have apps you should keep on your smartphone or tablet.

You’ve heard of Groupon, but do you know about Troopswap? This app provides military personnel, veterans and their families with money-saving deals exclusive to them. As an added bonus, 10 percent of proceeds from this app go to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Thanks for watching!
