MoJo: Mobile Journalism

Mobile phone tools for capturing, editing and sharing video are growing in sophistication and are now able to produce high quality video easily in the field. Some products, like the ReelDirector app from Nexvio try to improve on Apple's iMovie iPhone features, while VeriCorder's 1st Video app tries to appeal to new niche users by promoting its use in a specific field: journalism.

VeriCorder is touting "MoJo", or Mobile Journalism with its 1st Video video editing app for journalists. The video below shows how it is used with the iPhone and the companies' Owle Bubo lens and mic mount iPhone accessory.

VeriCorder also has programs for educators to enable journalism instructors and students to easily create their own television news stories and post them to iTunes U or a school website.
