As Andy Leff, Meporter CEO, describes his project :
Meporter is a local mobile news desk that allows citizen journalists to report, update, and read local news as it happens from their mobile phone. We have some really cool location based features allowing Meporters to check in to news stories when on the scene and winning badges for reporting breaking news. Here is a short video on how it works:
We were first only on iPhone iOS when we launched in May 2011 but we have now just released our Android App in public Beta which can be downloaded here
So the Android App was released on September 9th 2011. Users of the Android App can expect a similar experience to our iPhone app and will be able to post local news and events as they see them from their Droid phones and Tablet devices. The layout is similar to the iOS version except for a new home screen that is consistent with other Android Apps. We have been slammed with emails from people all over the world asking about when the Droid app would be released so we now finally have an answer for them. We welcome all user feedback as it helps us create a better experience and product for future releases.
We invite everyone to check out this new Android App by Meporter. And of course enjoy in doing citizen journalism.
