Journalism is so much more than newspapers and TV. Today, journalists can upload stories to the Internet or mobile device with photos, video, and graphics, all from their cell phones without having to go back to the newsroom after covering an event.
Here are the 10 multimedia and mobile tools from Mike Reilley’s Mobile Toolbox:
Storyline is an app used to create audio slideshows of photos. Choosing to sign up through twitter allows the photos shared to be posted via twitter as well as on the Storyline app.
Over easily lays text over photos and can be tweeted as an attachment.
Hyperlapse (created by Instagram) is a quick and easy way to shoot time lapse video which adds a dynamic perspective to a story.
Fyuse is an interactive app that captures 3-D photos
Bubbli is a very quick, easy and way to capture spatial photographs from every angle.
With the variety of mobile devices used to create graphics, video, etc., journalism is becoming much more interactive than ever before.
Some of these applications may not be compatible with android devices.
