Last week we asked Journalism.co.uk readers on Twitter and the mobile journalism (mojo) community on Facebook what mistakes they find themselves making regularly within their mojo workflows, from preparing for a shoot, to filming, editing and publishing their footage.
Mojo apps and tools are being developed all the time, which means journalists are constantly experimenting and finding their way around new hardware and software – often while shooting stories to be published straight away.
As well as highlighting the importance of getting to grips with these tools before using them for work, reporters shared other quirky tips and tricks that can help journalists save time when filming and editing on their smartphone.
Their advice includes ensuring their mobile device is in Airplane Mode before starting to film, remembering to use a windshield in harsh conditions, and taking the time to double-check one's work before posting it to social media.
