We Remember iPhone App by Veteran Affairs Canada

Remembrance day is on November 11th, and is a time when every Canadian should take a moment to reflect at the 11th hour to honour our troops both past and present. With November just around the corner, Veteran Affairs Canada has released their Remembrance iPhone app called We Remember. This app will encourage ongoing support for Veterans’ Week, which takes place November 5-11.

Designed by MindSea Development, out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, this app will help you remember in a variety of ways. Using your location the app will find a ceremony near you, you can write on the Veteran Affairs Canada Facebook wall, and more. Each ceremony includes a brief description, map directions, contact info, and the ability to share on twitter, Facebook, and via email.

Other goodies include a link to the Veteran Affairs Canada website, the ability to share the app, Remembrance Day Wallpapers, the poem In Flanders Fields (which a lot of us had to memorize in school), and a toggle switch to “Remind me on Remembrance Day”. Kudos to the team at MindSea Development for this well thought out and polished app.

Here’s the iTunes description:

How will you remember? The Remembrance iPhone App, We Remember, lets you find events and ceremonies across Canada, watch video from the Veterans Affairs Canada YouTube channel, read the Veterans Affairs Canada Facebook wall, and more.

Make remembrance more than something you feel. Make it something you do.

– find a ceremony near you
– check out the Veterans Affairs Canada Facebook wall
– watch a video on the Veterans Affairs Canada YouTube channel
– download an iPhone wallpaper
– share this app with a friend.

If you’re Canadian, it is your civic duty to remember the sacrifices that our soldiers and veterans have made for the freedoms we enjoy today. Tell all your friends about the We Remember iPhone app. There’s still plenty of time for everyone to download this app leading up to Remembrance Day.

    I remember 11:00am November 11th 1918 as the beginning of WWII. The allies blamed & punished Imperial Germany for WWI when it was clearly not Imperial Germany’s fault. This caused the Treaty of Versailles which lead on to Imperial Germany becoming Nazi Germany. Hitler was elected in 1932 because of this Treaty.
    So – I believe that war is bad. This includes WWI. That is why I remember November 11th as a horrible day for humanity.

    I remember those 16, 17 and 18 year old men and women who VOLUNTEERED and bravely fought and most lost their lives fighting for humanity. Fast forward to today and most teens could care less as long as they get whatever they want without having to work for it. I would rather remember those great generations than deal with today’s “Generation ME”. Lest we Forget.

    The apps has alot of faults. For Winnipeg very few remembrance day services are included. The main event in the Convention Centre was NOT included. The address for Deer Lodge Hospital was incorrect and the time was incorrect. DVA needs to do alot more to improve this programme. As a former DVA Chaplain I am not impressed by this Apps.

    ya maybe your kids, but please speak on your own behalf. I am 15 and I respect very much what the soldiers in the war did for us. Without them id probably never have this computer to use, my house to live in, or my right to free speech. The soldiers suffered for us and all i ever hear is parents complain about their kids. ITS YOUR KIDS. teach them that were wrong and guide us the right way instead of complaining on an iphone site. I will be downloading this app right away in memory of our soldiers. R.I.P. canadian ww1+2 veterans.

  • I hear what your saying. My eyes still show me that 9 out of 10 kids I
    see are acting out, simply not caring about anything but their selves.
    I understand yours words, but for the reasons I just explained is what
    causes me to say what I did.

  • It’s still a start and more features can come later. You can always email
    the developer with your concerns too.
