The BBC is developing an app which will aid reporters when out on the field. The app will combine all the heavy equipment that is usually used into an iPad or iPhone. The tool will allow the reporters to submit their videos, photographs and audio directly from their location.
The BBC said that they are adapting what their journalists already use and have made it sleeker and more reliable. The journalists will be able to use the app wherever there is a 3G network, therefore cutting costs of bulky reporting equipment and improving their mobility.
This app will be ready for release within a month.
