Citizenzide launches English iPhone app

Amateur photography and video platform backed by Agence France Presse (AFP), Citizenside has launched an English version of its iPhone application in beta.

The app is intended as a mobile news reporting app for news organisations

“We’re really proud of this V1.2 application as French contributors are using the 1.1 version more and more and understand its goals: share news, faster,” Matthieu Stefani, vice president of Citizenside, told in an email.

“As the international application market is more than 20 times bigger than French one, let’s hope we will receive more than 20 times more pictures.”

In an interview last month, Stefani told us the app will tap into an existing community of picture-sharers and amateur videojournalists, as well as promoting geotagged submissions.
