BBC develops iPhone app for its reporters

Journalism.co.uk
BBC’s reporters in the field will soon be able to file video, photos and audio directly to the network’s production system from an iPhone or iPad. Developers are adapting a special app to handle those functions. The BBC also is seeking to license an existing app, Luci Live, to enable reporters to broadcast live from a phone. ”It is beginning to be a realistic possibility to use iPhones and other devices for live reporting, and in the end if you’ve got someone on the scene then you want to be able to use them,” Martin Turner, BBC’s head of operations for newsgathering, told Journalism.co.uk. || Earlier: 8 must-have iPhone & Android apps for covering breaking news; iPhone 4 offers new tools for journalists
