IPhone Beneficial to Journalists
As Apple releases its fifth additition to the IPhone family, there are a few things that will directly impact journalists. News gathering will be made easier and will more affordable.
There are five things that journalists need to know…
The price has dropped from $199 to $99. Even better news, the Iphone 3 is now free with a two year contract with mobile company.
Don’t bother buying that expensive Nikon or Cannon because now the Iphone has an eight megapixel camera. Also, there is a one second delay accompanied with video image stabilization. So for those of you who want to have extensive and raw footage this is good news.
A new Safari App will be installed. This app now limits the amount of adds on the side of the webpage enabling the reader to only read the article. Also, the articles can be saved to a reading list to be read later.
A new app called Newsstand will also be included. It is specifically for buy magazines and newspapers.
Make way Facebook because Twitter is taking over. Apple has chosen its favorite social media site and it is not you. They now have teamed up with Twitter so whatever Apple creation you have you are able to tweet and stay connected on the go.

Having an iPhone is very useful for journalists because they can use it to instantly report news as it happens.

Allowing the iPhone 3 to be free with a new two year contract will make it more available to college journalists and will improve their ability to report.

Not only can journalists report but they can take high quality photos.

As a beginning journalist I can say my iPhone has helped immensely. I can tweet on the go, snap a photo when the action is happening, and I often use my Evernote app to jot down ideas that come to me.

I would say that the next generation of iPhones are definitely a must for a journalist. I am sure other smartphones would work for similar purposes, but Apple has really created a product that is better than the rest.

I'm not biased or anything.
