Use Cases
Clients use our white-label mobile apps for a variety of purposes. Here are a few of the popular uses:
User-Generated News
EXTEND YOUR NEWS COVERAGE THROUGH THE POWER OF CITIZEN JOURNALISM

News is happening in real-time and news organizations need to capture it from the source, when it’s happening! The Filemobile User-Generated News app provides an instant connection between your newsroom and app users. Through the mobile app, your users can be alerted in real-time when news breaks. From the newsroom, you track your app users in real-time, see them on a map and push notifications to their devices. This notification is linked to specific assignment pages in the application (also controlled by you) so users are instantly engaged with the news-at-hand. Available for iOS and Android, the mobile application can be quickly white-labelled to look like your brand and submitted to the app stores. Whether you use the app internally, externally, or both, the UGN app is a powerful utility that will keep your newsroom and audiences connected.

Community
CREATE SUSTAINED ENGAGEMENT THROUGH YOUR AUDIENCE HUB

With sustained participation you can quickly create a sense of community. Filemobile’s Community functionality provides a place for your audience to see program activity (past and present), discover content and connect with other users. The community infrastructure comes packaged with the mobile application, where users can browse assignments, content, profiles, audience maps, comment on content, share and vote. The community also works with widgets so your content is always visible, your star contributors get noticed, and your audience stays engaged.

Contest
HOW MANY CONTEST ENTRIES ARE ON YOUR AUDIENCE'S PHONES

Your contest advertising made an impression, but will it result in participation? Advertising is not enough — you need to meet people where they are and where their photos and videos are — on their mobile phones. Filemobile enables you to support mobile uploads and interactions, such as votes, and comments . By doing this, you make it easy for your audience to create and consume content during their downtime (e.g. on public transit), when opportunity strikes (e.g. a spur of the moment photo opp) or anywhere their mobile phone goes. That means more entries, more views, more social impact .

Gallery
DISPLAY & ACCEPT MEDIA THROUGH ONE APP

No matter what your social program requires, we’ve got you covered. The Filemobile Gallery App enables you to accept mobile uploads and display them in a user-friendly mobile interface. It can accompany your desktop initiative , or operate exclusively on its own.
