Mobile journalism

Today in lecture, Mike McKean (a professor in the Futures Lab) showed us the crazy, scary, really cool possibilities of the future. In talking about mobile journalism, Professor McKean showed us how a lot of companies and media outlets are trying to keep up with all the new technology out there: QR codes, tags, apps and smartphones. My favorite part of the lecture was McKean’s demonstration of iPad apps he called “innovative.” These included apps from Newsy and Wired Magazine, which both showed great multimedia possibilities. Lecture almost made me forget that I don’t actually need an iPad…I just really, really want one.

Here are some more great iPad apps, courtesy of a slideshow from CIO.com: iPad Apps.
