Enhanced UGC App Plays Up Mobile, Location

Last year, Andy Leff turned a five-year-old hunch about user-generated content into Meporter. The app allows users to turn their phones into all the tools they need to create and publish news stories. Meporter also allows citizen journalists to use their phone’s geolocation features to pinpoint where they are reporting from.

The location-based Meporter service is aimed at both professional and citizen journalists, and creates a community within its own environment as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
