Hi there, thanks for stopping by VetsApp, a nongovernment initiative that I hope compels interest in the app development marketplace for tools, such as this app, that simplify the user experiences of U.S. government websites.
While I do work at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), this product is not a result of any collaboration or technical information sharing between me or VA, it is purely my own work, and it leverages public websites and images in the public domain.
If you’d like to learn more about me and the projects I’m passionate about, or if you’d like to get in touch, check out my website. ~Jonathan
If you’d like to learn more about developing apps for VA in particular, check out VA’s new API Management Platform, “the ‘front door’ to VA’s vast data stores—giving developers the ability to design technology solutions that leverage our data and serve our Veterans.” –U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

1) This is not an official government or Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) application, this is simply a mobile platform that connects users directly with the many benefits, services, applications, and forms available at many government and public websites. Users can bypass this app altogether and visit these websites from their primary web browser to access the same applications.
2) None of the applications available within VetsApp are hosted on VetsApp servers; they are hosted directly on the official website the user is accessing.
3) VetsApp does not record and maintain keystrokes, messages, or any other information input through VetsApp, nor any information exchanged between the app user and the secure website being accessed.
4) VetsApp is not liable for any problems associated with using this app, as the app is simply a shortcut to secure websites and forms and does not interface with any government authentication platforms.
