UNC Reese News Lab publishes mobile journalism e-pub

The Reese News Lab at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has released an e-pub book about mobile news gathering: News On The Go. The book is priced at $4.99 and available in e-pub or pdf format. From the press release:

Americans are rapidly adopting mobile devices, transforming the way they obtain news. Nearly one in five Americans now access the Internet primarily using their phone, not a computer, according to an April 2012 survey by the Pew Internet & American Life project. In June 2012, the Reese staff – a team of designers, programmers and journalists – decided to explore how this trend could affect journalism. They created stories meant to be consumed on smart phones and tablets and launched WhichWayNC.com, a “mobile-first” project focused on North Carolina politics.

I just received a review copy of the book, and will update as I get through it. I hope to have an interview as well sometime soon.
