CBS Launches Citizen Media iPhone App

Sep 22nd, 2008 | By | Category: Citizen Media, iPhone

CBS has launched EyeMobile (iTunes link) – a free citizen media iPhone application. The application lets you browse the latest CBS new reports, but also lets you contribute to news coverage by submitting images. 

EyeMobile is part of‘s take on social media news. 

  • The iPhone/Web site combination lets you:
  • submit images as you capture news;
  • build your coverage with stories about the photos;
  • track discussion of your stories;
  • discuss other citizen media stories;
  • track CBS EyeMobile coverage of past events. 
CBS is competing with several other networks in a relatively undeveloped area. As more and more people get phones with sophisticated wireless publishing capabilities, though, the potential for social news coverage is likely to explode. 
It’s not much of a leap to imagine a future where mobile citizen journalists will be able to offer dozens of perspectives on major news events in real time.
