Fran and all;

Let me tell you a bit more about the MUFON App. First of all it
is an App with three modules to it. The first module is free,
the second will cost a little, and the third, the most
important, will cost a bit more but the total will be under $10.
I wont get into the first two modules, but will elaborate on the

MUFON Mobile
The MUFON Mobil Application allows the user to freely navigate
MUFON's online content from the comfort of their mobile device.
This module also provides some quick tips and educational
material on investigating the UFO Phenomena.

UFO Search
UFO Search is a comprehensive application that allows the user
to search the MUFON database quickly and easily while on the go.
MUFON's database holds tens of thousands of reports spread out
all over the world. (Our Case Management System files, CMS II)

Skywatch Alert
Skywatch Alert is the UFO Connect's flagship application. This
module will revolutionize how the general public, UFO/Skywatcher
enthusiast and serious UFO investigator interacts and witness
the phenomena we have come to know as UFOs.

The third module is put together similar too the Amber alert
system, so that if one person reports a UFO on there iPhone,
everyone who has the Skywatch Alert module will get an immediate
notification that a UFO was reported. The individual owner gets
to choose how big of a circle that they want to be alerted
about, ranging from 5 miles to All (world wide). They can also
set how old of a case it is from less than 2 hours, 6 hours, 24
hours or all.

What is so amazing is the idea that if the person seeing the UFO
takes a picture with the iPhone the have captured latitude,
longitude altitude and azimuth for that picture and also a very
accurate time for when the picture was taken. Then if some one
else in the same general area also takes a picture of the object
and reports it with that much information we are playing a new
ball game. And our imagination runs away with us saying what
have you got if 10 or 15 people photograph the same object with
that much data per picture.

We do have to be realistic too, in that we understand that the
large majority of buyers will be in the younger set and that we
will get all kinds of reports. Well that is nothing new. The
people who monitor our CMS system now are constantly throwing
things out of the system due to the many and varied things they
find being "reported". The newer CMS II system has some built in
filtering for some of the prank stuff and it also automatically
evaluates reports as to there basic type and forwards good
reports directly to the MUFON State Director where the incident
occurred. Our statistics for completed investigations are
showing that approximately one-thrid of our states are
completing 100% of the cases assigned to them, and the trend is
on an "improving" slope.

Of course we do also look forward to making a few dollars on
this App, which is always needed in this community, and
hopefully that will allow us to do even more and do it all

Wish us luck.
