The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has introduced a pair of mobile apps for Android and Windows 7 that provide information about firearms types and nomenclature.
In addition to the new apps, the ATF also updated its app available for Apple iPhone. The app was developed in cooperation with NIC, Inc.
With the app, users can also learn about ATF history and areas of expertise, find their local ATF field offic, and sign up for e-mail updates on the latest ATF-related news.
"ATF is committed to making its mobile presence one that proves both educational to the general public and useful to our industry and law enforcement partners," said Scot Thomasson, chief of the ATF's public affairs division. "The iOS update along with the Android and Windows Phone 7 versions are important steps toward that goal."
Version 1.12 of the ATF iPhone/iPod app is currently available for download on iTunes.
The Android version is now available in the Android Marketplace, and the Windows Phone 7 Version can be found at the Windows Mobile 7 Marketplace.
