DAMASCUS – ISIS has released its own smartphone app named “Nasher” for its fighters and recruit members directly through their smartphones. Which is only made available by downloading a specific code from the internet.
The ‘Nasher’ ISIS app has to be installed manually by downloading a special file.
An app made by the terrorist group ISIS has been launched for Google Android smartphones and tablets.
Known for its mastery of the internet and social media, ISIS has created the app in order to easily spread news to its smartphone-carrying supporters.
It can also be used as a recruitment tactic by the extremist group.
The app was discovered by a US security consultancy and isn’t available through the Google Play app store.
Instead, users are required to download a special code hidden on the internet and install the app on their device manually.
Islamic State uses the app, which it calls “Nasher” to catalogue written reports, radio news and video files.
At the time of writing, the landing page for the app’s APK (Android application package) file had been viewed over 7,500 times although there’s no telling how many downloads have been made.
