here's no question we're asking reporters, photographers, anchors and producers to do more during the news gathering process. We're also asking them to connect with viewers more frequently on social and digital media. If they don't streamline the process or take advantage of tools that can make these tasks more manageable, the additional work can be overwhelming. It doesn't have to be.
Here is a list of tools and apps for your team to make not just mobile storytelling easier, but also their entire workflow more efficient.
Adobe Spark – this free tool helps you create graphics, web stories and animated videos quickly. The app also offers story templates to make this process quicker.
Awesome Voice Recorder – this app has multiple uses. It allows you to record interview audio on your smartphone, which is helpful for logging interviews. It also allows you to record voiceover audio. If you need to send something back to the station, this produces broadcast-quality audio.
