The Ozark A&M Club has created a smartphone app to let you keep up with all the activities for the weekend! It is free and easy to use. This is a great way to keep informed of game day activities. When you allow the app to send you 'push notifications' you will receive real time updates of activities and plans. There is a tab to post your photos, videos, and share your status. This app is a great way to connect on game day! To get it just go to http://my.yapp.us/OZARKAGGIES.
