PR professionals have stories to share, moments to capture, and campaigns to create. It is beneficial to have a mobile app that can be used to assist in completing these various tasks quicker and in high quality. In a society where the phrase, “there’s an app for that” little day to day tasks have been made simpler to accomplish just by touching a screen, especially in the workplace.

The FiLMic Pro App, a video app assists the PR professional in capturing the moment or creating a moment without having too many pieces of equipment. PR pros can shoot video of high quality on the spot from the palm of their hand on the IOS and the android platform, eliminating the need to carry around extra equipment.

Not Just Another Video App

Sure video applications come stocked on all mobile devices. However, FiLMic Pro is not your run of the mill video app. The app makes the novice feel like a pro, hence the name. Including a quick start guide and a user’s manual easy to access and assist the user how each component works in the application.

The user has the ability change and lock the focus, audio quality, the white balance, along with the warmth of the video to name a few settings available. The video clips can be edited in length within the app with a simple swipe of the finger. Connect a mic to the mobile device to obtain an interview or use a mount to attach to the tripod and the PR professional has captured important content with one simple mobile app.

Sharing is Caring

Each video clip can also be uploaded to iMovie to add that extra touch needed to complete the project. This can be done either on the same device or a computer. The app is simple to use on iPod touch, iPhone and the iPad making sharing video clips easy amongst the devices through the airdrop setting to include the Mac. With easy sharing capabilities, this app makes capturing and editing high-quality video easier for the PR professional capturing content without the in-depth knowledge provided by film school.

Things to Consider

Since FiLMic Pro uses such high-quality filming and several settings, the battery is drained rather quickly depending on the use of the device. It would be wise to have a portable charger on hand for battery life. Also, the video clips do eat up a bit of space on the device. Again, the user should prepare ahead of time and ensure all previous footage has been removed before use. Unfortunately, the app does not include a photo option to capture still imagines. The app does cost $9.99, however, the cost is minimal compared to the quality.

Wish App

 An ideal mobile app for a PR professional when it comes to capturing and editing video would allow for capturing all content in one app. Photos, audio, and video could be captured without having to transfer to other devices or apps to complete finishing touches and uploaded to various social media platforms at one time, to including the scheduling of posts. Currently, content must be transferred to complete a task or content and various applications along with 2 or more devices are necessary varying in different sizes.  If PR professionals had the ability to use one application on a maximum of 2 devices for this area, less time is needed to complete these tasks.

Library Mobile Apps Provides Educational Needs to At-Risk Youth

Share Button

Since I have been employed at the South Carolina Youth Challenge Academy, I have seen first hand the effects of living in low income areas as it pertains teens. When the students arrive, they must take the TABE Test which is the Test for Adult Basic Education. The test measures basic skills in math, ELA (English, Language Arts), science and social studies. Over half of the teens do not score over a 5th or 6th grade level in several of the areas, many score even lower. A large majority of the youth who come through the program are underprivileged and do not have access to out reach programs or local community services, which include the libraries. Often libraries are located within the city or town limits and provide services for the youth, especially during the summer. Tutoring services are available at little to no cost along with several other educational benefits, however without access to transportation these youth miss the opportunity to expand on their education.

Although a website is available to search for events, jobs, and locations. As an example of a local library, the information I just mention can be viewed at the Richland County Library website. The site does not provide any virtual screening of the upcoming events. A mobile app or site catering to the youth, could provide virtual screening of events, virtual tutoring, access to online education materials catered towards teens or anyone who needs to expand on their education at no cost, to include the lower income areas and more rural less populated locations. The app would should have more imaginary to gain the attention of the users not to mention a simple design. The youth would have access to the library and all the educational benefits through the mobile site or app without having to actually be in the library. The schools and other educational entities in the area can provide the information for the app for the families to download who do not have access to the opportunities available to them.

Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIN would be excellent platforms to create awareness of the mobile site or app. Many educational institutes use these platforms to disseminate information to the public, which would be an ideal starting point to grab the attention of individuals seeking to assist their children in reaching their educational goals and staying on target.

The nonprofit organization I develop PR campaigns for currently, sees more and more single parent homes searching for a solution to help their young man or woman get back on track. The greatest part about this is that

The nonprofit organization I develop PR campaigns for currently, sees more and more single parent homes searching for a solution to help their young man or woman get back on track. The greatest part about this is that the youth are the ones who realize in order to have a chance for a brighter future, they need to change. They do it for themselves. They do it for their families and community. They take a young man or women, who seems lost and heading down the wrong path and give them hope. We realize, that if our young men and women are presented with a different choice, a positive one, they will take that chance to make their families proud and to prove they are more than what society or even the system has labeled them as. Families can get back on track as well.

M Vannall Public Relations works for our future, your future, our families future, by giving nonprofits a voice, Raise awareness of these organization who are working to provide better opportunities and choices, not only for your community but, for our youth, just maybe we can begin to bring a sense of proud back to our homes. We create relationships to reach those who need us the most, the lost ones, the forgotten, and maybe those who just need encouragement to get back track. I’d like to believe that M Vannall Public Relations is helping to create stronger communities for families.
