UC Berkeley Launches Mobile Reporting Field Guide

A new journalist reference guide on tools and applications that can be used for iPhone reporting has launched from UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Although the book is called a “mobile” reporting guide, it’s actually device-specific, focusing specifically on the iPhone.  You can download the book to read as a PDF, or download it from the Apple iBook store.

The book reviews various apps, gear and recommendations for a mobile “kit” that covers “everything you would need to cover breaking news or conduct a two person interview.”

Students Casey Capachi, Matt Sarnecki and Evan Wagstaff are credited for their contributions.
