You can call the iPhone many things these days: a computer that fits in the palm of your hand, an extremely versatile mobile device, G.P.O.A.T. (greatest phone of all time). But I’ve been hearing a few people suggest that the iPhone can also now be used as a new way to report and file a story. Because of iTunes’ expansive library of apps, developers are coming up with an abundance of creative tools. But could it be? Can you actually turn your iPhone into a reporter’s notebook?
It’s already being tried.
I also did a little experimenting with my iPhone this summer with the built-in camera and Voice Memos. I was in a rush, so I didn’t get to spend as much time capturing this great doo wop group that sings everyday at one of Washington, D.C.’s Metro stops. But that’s what happens when you’re a reporter: sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
