CBS Mobile, a division of CBS Interactive Inc., has released its EyeMobile iPhone application, making CBS the first broadcast network to launch an application enabling users to become citizen journalists as they upload, view and comment on photos and videos.
The EyeMobile application was developed for CBS Mobile by Seattle-based Treemo Labs. The EyeMobile application offers the full functionality of CBSEyeMobile.com, which launched earlier this year. Using the iPhone camera, users can capture and upload photos to the CBS EyeMobile site, where they can view and rate reports and interact with others. After submitting information, EyeMobile application users can update their report, track the report's number of views, and engage in discussions with members of the EyeMobile community.
"Soon we will be able to broadcast anything live from the street, essentially becoming walking televisions. This application enables any iPhone user to report news from their hometown or wherever they are. It also allows users to engage in nonfiltered reporting from real people," said Jeff Sellinger, executive vice president and general manager, CBS Mobile.
The EyeMobile iPhone application is now available, free of charge, in the iTunes App Store online.
