Zerion Software releases iPhone Data Collection app for the Inauguration

January 20, 2009 in Lifestyle (E)

[prMac.com] Herndon, Virginia - Zerion Software today announced Inauguration Report. Inauguration report lets users send personalized 'reports' about the inauguration, and share it online with the public at large. In a collaborative effort, NPR and CBS News will also incorporate public contributions in their coverage of the inauguration, so those who submit content may be contacted if they decide to use your submission.

Reports can be submitted in the form of a text message, photos, or audio. Location information, if the user chooses to submit it, is also captured, so detailed data of who and where the content is being posted from is stored and mapped, creating a picture of the worldwide scope of the event, and those individuals involved in it.

The Inauguration report utilizes Zerion's mobile data collection framework which allows data to be collected offline and submit to the server when connection is available. "Offline capability is critical to this project as during the Inauguraiton event cellular coverage may be affected." Scott Hunter, Partner of Zerion Software.

"The opportunity to be involved and contribute to a project of this scope is a tremendous opportunity to serve the community at large, and be part of a historical event all at the same time. We are happy to contribute our skills in the mobile data collection space to this effort." Sze Wong, President of Zerion Software.

Results of the project will be posted online at NPR, CBS News, and Inauguration Report. Content will be added to a collection of submissions from other iPhone users, as well as people on Twitter, Flickr, and other online communities. Inauguration Report joins iGravy and Rochambeau in the growing number of iPhone applications created by Zerion Software.
