As the nation prepares to remember President John F. Kennedy’s assassination that took place in Dallas 50 years ago this November 22, our sister station KXAS in Dallas has made available rare archival footage of JFK’s 1963 visit in a new iPhone app. Through the station’s extensive archives, the app offers unique historical insight into events leading up to and surrounding that tragic day.
The JFK 50: NBC 5 Remembers app, available for download now in the App Store here , features extensive video content, including archival station footage of President Kennedy’s trip to Fort Worth and Dallas and the chaotic days after the shots were fired at Dealey Plaza. When the President was shot, the station broke into programming and stayed on the air for three days. Among the app’s content is video from the Dallas Police Headquarters on the day Jack Ruby fatally shot Lee Harvey Oswald, which was broadcast live from a camera operated by a station engineer.
In addition to the video, users can explore interactive maps retracing the route of the Presidential motorcade on the day of the assassination and Oswald’s escape path, noting important points along the way. The app also includes a special timeline detailing the events of each day in Dallas from November 21 to November 27, 1963, paired with corresponding articles and videos to transport the user to the seven days surrounding the President’s trip to Texas. Within the app, various other sections explore JFK’s legacy, the Kennedy family and the major figures and landmarks of the 1960s as well as video of key speeches delivered by President Kennedy.
The app also offers users the opportunity to live stream the ceremony taking place in Dallas on November 22, 2013 to mark the anniversary.

Pamela in Odenton Maryland says “With the instant RSVP feature I know how many people are coming, when they’re coming and if they’re on their way. And I check all this using my IPhone or IPAD. This helps me plan better for our family events leading to the event day”
Antonice Strickland, who just moved in from Detroit Michigan uses it to plan girls night out with her sorority sisters. She loves sharing photos from the past before everyone meets up! She says “It is so easy to use from my computer or tablet!”
We’ve had success with one of our events too. Last year.. it was great for the DC Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer. We posted past pictures and video, directions and ticket sales all in one place! People loved it!
What’s ahead… there’s a new IPhone, IPAD and Android app coming with many more features. For now, go to www.Kojami.com when planning the next event!
Just heard from MCPS and apparently this is NOT their app. They’re looking into who made it. They pointed out that they’ve worked on making a very mobile friendly site: http://mongtomeryschoolsmd.org
MCPS says no one should pay for this app.. it appears the company scraped public information off their site to make it.
