APR 3-Nearly everyone has replaced their mobiles to smart phones nowadays. But what is so charming about smart phone? Reporters said- it is their savior.


Stephen Quinn, the Digital Development Editor of South China Morning Post, has long been studying the application of smart phones on journalism. He pointed out that the multi-functional character of smart phones brings along a more efficient and easier way on reporting.


“MoJo (mobile journalism) is very important because it helps delivering multimedia forms of breaking news almost live. It can also help building audience online,” said Quinn.


Furthermore, he also appreciates the decrease in size and cost on the working devices.


“In the past, the kits we used upon reporting were very massive in size,” said Quinn, referring to a kit set of a personal computer, a notebook, stationeries, a voice recorder, a camera and many other digital devices. “While a smart phone can serve various functions, like video and photo taking and voice recording, the size of the silicon chips is smaller than a termite. And the cost for a smart phone is comparatively much lower.”


Regarding the easy access to mobile reporting, Quinn is confident that the rise of “citizen reporters” would not have much impact on the journalism industry.


“Professional reporters know about the codes of ethics and law, and have developed sense on reporting and a press card to get into events. The audiences pay for the quality of our work,” said Quinn.


“That’s why we always need to learn new skills-we need to stay ahead of the challenging curve.”
