A new version of AP ENPS Mobile includes powerful features to make mobile newsgathering more efficient, The Associated Press announced today.
The new application carries the “AP ENPS Anywhere” concept forward. Users can now upload photos and video from mobile devices directly into AP ENPS stories. The new version also includes real-time dynamic updates of content wherever a journalist is working, user-configurable and mobile-specific rundown views and native apps for both iOS and Android devices.
“The new AP ENPS Mobile brings the look and feel of the latest desktop client to journalists’ mobile devices, reducing training times and giving journalists greater ability to create content from wherever news happens,” said Director of AP ENPS Product Design Jason Smith. “This includes quickly feeding media from the scene back to the newsroom, directly into the newscast rundown.”
Talent using AP ENPS Mobile in the Tablet Story Viewer (TSV) mode will appreciate seeing the rundown timing bar advance automatically along with their newscasts. They will also be able to edit stories from within the TSV.
AP ENPS is the world’s most popular multiplatform news production system in use by more than 60,000 journalists. Every day more than half of the news seen across the globe is produced on AP ENPS.
