Ratings and Reviews
Does exactly what it’s supposed to, perfectly.
This app is designed for one single purpose: to provide immediate access to the major support hotlines for veterans. If you have a buddy who is talking about hurting themselves, open this app and two clicks later you have someone on the phone who can help. The idea is that you never know when you might encounter a vet needing assistance - or maybe you are the vet facing a difficult time. It is important to talk to a qualified person as soon as possible. If you have this app you basically have speed dial to all of those resources so you don’t have to hunt thru multiple contacts or websites. You can get in touch with someone literally in just a few seconds. No clutter, just the info you need all on one screen. If you want loads of info about the partners linked here, go to their websites.
I have to agree with the first reviewer. This application does not seem to be ready for prime time.
Many of the links do not go anywhere. At first glance the app looks like a great idea but access to any meaningful information is greatly lacking.
This site should be taken down until it actually works.
Whoever was paid to make this should be fired. It calls phone numbers and send you to a link. This could be so much more and isn't.
