    Before you read this know that I have contacted the mods and Hexalor gave me permission to post this here...


    I am active duty military and I am trying to become a full-time IM and mobile app developer by the time my enlistment is up. I have been working very hard at this with any spare time that I can find. I am still learning ( Aren't we all) But I love this forum and I have learned so much from it. I need to just apply more of what I learn. Let me get right down to business.I am a faithful member here. I love this forum and I know there are alot of people here that are experts.

    I am excited about this milestone and I know this could help me. I just need help getting the word out about it. I have done what I know how so far and I have submitted my press release etc and now I am going to build it some backlinks etc.


    To be blunt. I want to see if anyone in the forum would be willing to help me either with getting the word out or even building backlinks to it. Blackhat or whitehat does not matter at this point I really just want the world to know about it. This would be an awesome support the troops kind of thing too if people would do it. Please do not think I am just asking for handouts I am working very hard here and I am just trying to exhaust every avenue that I can to help me. Anything would help. Please take this request from my heart and let me know what you can do....

    Please PM me or give me a way to contact you if you can help me out.

    Thanks again.



    Here is a copy of the press release I wrote up:

    AF Tracker Helps Air Force Members Get Fit

    Physical fitness is a prime concern for those in the Air Force. The new AF Tracker app will help all service members track their physical fitness status to make sure they are meeting the requirements based off Air Force Instruction. AF Tracker is also working to provide features to help all Airmen maintain and advance in their careers.

    Service member, Julio Medina, developed AF Tracker. The application is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It can be obtained, free of charge, in the iTunes App Store. The PT Calculator is a main feature that calculates a physical fitness score based on user-entered information. This feature calculates fitness scores based on the number of push-ups and sit-ups completed and the time required to run 1.5 miles. It also takes into account the age of the user and any medically exempt exercises while including points based off of waist size. The PT Calculator will always be free of charge. Other premium features will be available in the future for a small cost as an in app purchase.

    The new physical fitness standards, enacted by the Air Force, represent the most strenuous in over a decade. The changes were made to promote a fitness-based culture that enhances the mission readiness of Airmen. The new fitness program accords a specific percentage to individual fitness tasks. The 1.5-mile run accounts 60% of the total score, body composition accounting for 20%, with push-ups and sit-ups accounting for 10% each.

    Five age categories are included in the PT Calculator. They range from less than 30 to age 60 and over. An excellent score is 90 points and above. Scores of 76 to 89 are rated as satisfactory while 75 or less is unsatisfactory. The PT Calculator included in AF Tracker is an ideal tool to help those in the Air Force monitor the various physical tasks required, as well as their scores.

    AF Tracker is devoted to providing an upcoming feature that will allow Airmen to enter the due date of their annual PT Test. This feature will send Airmen reminders one month, two weeks and one week prior to their due date. This is especially important, as the Air Force has deemed it the responsibility of each Airmen to know their exact due date. Medina also hopes to include the following features and many more in future updates.
    Fitness Tracker
    WAPS Calculator
    Bullet Tracker


    You can find the app here

    Thanks! That is just a way for service members to track the good things they do as far as community involvement, work related awards etc. They are called "bullets" and its just gonna be a way to keep a record of them.
