iPhone Reporting – A lesson from Neal Augenstein

Your iPhone is a newsgathering machine! WTOP radio reporter Neal Augenstein knows all about it. He uses his smartphone for all of his assignments.

Augenstein uses his iPhone to record sound. He edits with the application, VC Audio Pro, and once he’s done, he simply e-mails his report to the station. How cool is that?

Surprisingly, Augenstein says that he’s among the few.

If you watch the interview, I think you’d agree that he is a great resource for anyone who is interested in smartphone reporting.
