Local News App Empowers People


Local news is always placed on the shoulders of journalists, mass communication professionals, and the media. However, the media pertains to people, and local news is best told by the locals themselves.

With the newest Android app in the market, The Zipper makes it possible for ordinary citizens to become journalists of their own for as long as they own an iPhone, smart phone, or android phone.

Why it empowers people

With the popularity of social networking sites and the dwindling updates from the media, more and more people are getting the latest news from their friends through text messaging or status updates on Facebook and other similar networking sites.

News coming from real people themselves are more credible to the public, since news casters and publications usually screen out some non-newsworthy events. People rely much to android apps and text messages to get the newest happenings and events in their local area, or perhaps worldwide.

With The Zipper, people can broadcast news that they have seen with their own eyes and their own un-glamorized version of the story at the touch of their android phones. This empowers people to become responsible citizens who can give relevant and informative news to others, as well as being more aware to their environment.

The Zipper comes with private texting to protect the identity of the one posting the news. This new android app makes it possible to empower and protect people at the same time Ė the same type of treatment that journalists receive for being news media people.
