HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — Smart phone users now have an additional method for obtaining Hill Air Force Base information, as the base has been added to the USAF Connect phone application.
The app augments traditional communication tools – such as the official website, social media sites and the Hilltop Times – by consolidating multiple resources in a single location, easing access to information and news.
“The base works diligently to bring relevant news and information to Hill Air Force Base through a variety of platforms,” said Richard Essary, 75th Air Base Wing Public Affairs. “By leveraging the USAF Connect app, all of these resources can now be found in one place, which makes it convenient for our base’s military, civilians and families to stay informed.”
The app aims to improve workforce engagement and efficiency by providing an array of robust features that enhance access to the information personnel need to manage their Air Force life and career.
The app is free, cannot be used to track your location and collects no personal data.
Top features include:
* Hill general information and contacts
* News and social media streams
* Emergency contacts and resources
* Air Force guides and fitness information
* Mentoring resources
* … and much more
Additional features are planned by Public Affairs, which manages the Hill portion of the app. User feedback is solicited to ensure the app meets the needs of users across the base. Hill personnel are encouraged to download USAF Connect and add the unit sub-app to their favorites.
Once the USAF Connect application is installed from the Apple App Store or Google Play, select Hill Air Force Base when prompted to add favorites. Once favorited, users can swipe left from the USAF Connect home screen to access the base platform. Users can favorite up to 10 organizations, making it easy to get the information they need anytime, anywhere, from the palm of their hands.
