Free Android App: Meporter

galaxy s3 covers

Ever wanted to be a reporter? now everyone can with Mereporter, which is a free app for your Android phone. It’s in the beta right now, but it allows anyone to report the news as they see it happening and it’s location based. I like the idea of this kind of app, but I don’t think law enforcement will take too kindly to it. We’ve all seen and read the stories of citizens being harassed and even arrested just because they filmed, recorded or reported the wrong doings of the police. This is something that should never happen of course, the police should be held accountable for what they do. Anyway, this app is for any news you see happening in your area like the weather, traffic, accidents or police actions. Just open up the app and report the news, it couldn’t be any easier really. As of now it’s available for the iPhone and Android. Here’s some screenshots and more info about it:

Meporter, the local mobile news desk for citizen journalists, launched their official public beta Android App in the Android Marketplace today.

The location-based news app allows users all around the world to report and read news as it’s happening in any local community, right down to the street level. Eyewitnesses on the scene of breaking news can use Meporter to report on anything from weather and traffic to nightlife, local politics, dining and entertainment, professional sporting events even their kid’s little league game. Stories can be shared within the Meporter community or with friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter.

Meporter has been capitalizing on the explosion of smart phone usage and has been an international success. Meporter has regular news contributors all around the world and on every continent. Meporters have been posting everything from local weather reports during Hurricane Irene on the East Coast all the way to hotel fires in the United Kingdom.

Meporter features standard news categories found in local newspapers for an intuitive user and reader experience. Categories include: announcements, classifieds, crime, entertainment, health, nightlife, events, odd news, op-ed, other news, politics, real estate, restaurants, science, tech, sports, lifestyle, traffic, travel and weather.

Now that the Android app is ready and is downloadable, Meporter has extended their contest called the “Million Man Launch” to users in the Android community.
