How about data sets? Any examples of the types of data the app should focus on?

We've compiled some sample data sets as a starting place for your mobile app development project.  You are not in any way obligated to use these data sets, but we wanted to provide some example resources as models or references during your work.  While the links below will bring you to the source of this material, the data sets themselves have been made available to you on our Resources webpage http://www.va.gov/VAi2/Resources_REACH.asp

(Note:  Including a data set does not constitute endorsement by the Department of Veterans Affairs of the organization providing the data, of any organization or individual listed as a resource within it, or of the quality and completeness of the data set.)
