A listing of some of the top practical apps available for you.

Marine Cadence

Need an on-the-run refresher to help you polish up your cadence calling? Marines can thank a soldier. Of course, Staff Sgt. William Ernest also has an Army version, along with a slew of other helpful military apps.

Price: Free.

For: Android.

Military Traveler

Created by Marine Corps Harrier pilot Capt. Anthony Hatala after one too many moves to a new base, Military Traveler is more than a quick reference base-apedia. "It's more like Yelp for the military," says Hatala. It comes packed with helpful phone numbers and basic base info, but the user-shared content such as ratings and reviews for on-base restaurants and uploaded photos is what really makes this app sing.

Price: Free.

For: iOS and Android.


Who hasn't fretted over the all the finer points of putting together the finery of a dress uniform? And what long-suffering spouse hasn't had to endure all the fussing that goes with it? Navy spouse Terrence Goggin figured he'd lend a hand by creating Uniformity, "an app that reduces all that trivia to what you really need to know." It includes a rack builder, cross-referenced illustrations for every Navy uniform, updated grooming regs and even a handy ruler.

Price: $5.99.

For: iOS.

BAH Rate Query

A simple app for a simple job, BAH Rate Query was born when then-Army Maj. Gregory Motes found out he'd been promoted. "I was curious how much my BAH would rise," he writes on his website. "Went to the official website and looked it up, but decided this would be a good app to create." Such is the apparent ease with which this app-making machine cranks out new titles.

Price: Free.

For: iOS and Android.
