ATF apps provide firearms info to police, public

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has introduced a pair of mobile apps

By PoliceOne Staff

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has introduced a pair of mobile apps for Android and Windows 7, the agency announced Wednesday.

The ATF updated its existing iPhone app in addition to the new releases, and with the apps, users can learn about ATF history and areas of expertise, find their local ATF field office and sign up for e-mail updates on the latest ATF-related news – all in addition to finding basic information about firearms types and nomenclature.

"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 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.
