A lot of attention in the news industry has been given recently to the idea of using mobile devices for reporting. This class decided to serve as a case study on how well these devices, apps and third-party accessories work in the creation of multimedia.
We attempted find all the accessories that had potential to aid a mobile journalist in the field, then we bought them all. With shipments arriving every week and students armed with App Store gift cards, we embarked on a quest to put the apps and gear to the test.
This field guide is the result of the hard work of students, Casey Capachi, Matt Sarnecki and Evan Wagstaff.
