Pocket Reporter is a personal “news editor in your pocket” to guide journalists, citizen reporters, activists and other users through the news gathering process.
It has a variety of story templates that range from covering accidents, fires, crimes and disasters, to obituaries and protests. It takes you through a series of questions that ensure you gather the correct information for your story by asking the right questions.
Just type the information you gather into the box below each question. You then have the option of emailing the information to yourself so you can work on your story later. Or you can send it directly to your editor or news editor, or anyone else you choose.
You keep full control of your information because, unlike some platforms, it is not sent to a central server. So your stories remain private, unless you choose to share them. Once you have emailed your story you can delete it from your phone, leaving no trace of it.
PocketReporter supports English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Portuguese and Spanish.
