Newsforce app for Adelaide readers to contribute to news

Advertiser Newspapers Pty Limited have launched a new phone app to allow readers to share news tips, video and photos with the newsrooms of the Advertiser, Sunday Mail and Adelaide Now.

The announcement:

 Make the news – with NewsForce
Introducing NewsForce – the new, simple way to send news tips, video and photos. The smartphone app allows readers to become part of South Australia’s news and share their content with newsroom of The Advertiser, Sunday Mail and AdelaideNow.
Launching today, the NewsForce smartphone app is free to download at the App store and Android Market, giving readers the opportunity to easily share news on the move and see their contribution published across The Advertiser, Sunday Mail and AdelaideNow.
In the past year, Advertiser NewsMedia has experienced an increase in user-generated content – from people on the spot at serious news events; to photos and videos that share the lighter side of life in South Australia.
“The NewsForce app will make it much easier for readers to become involved and engaged, providing them with a sense of ownership” said Mel Mansell, Editor, The Advertiser. “The first of its kind in the country, the development of NewsForce demonstrates the commitment of Advertiser NewsMedia to use state of the art technology to better engage with the community.”
Designed by Advertiser NewsMedia in collaboration with Okado and Teknograd, NewsForce will be promoted with a press and online campaign from Monday October 31.
To download NewsForce head to iTunes, with Android Market available soon. Those without a smartphone haven’t been forgotten either, with a NewsForce page set up on AdelaideNow, www.adelaidenow.com.au/newsforce to allow readers to easily share their content.
