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.

Features

Brandable iPhone/iPad & Android Apps

Although our app comes baked with a ton of amazing features, you can make it look like your own! Simply download our graphic package and skin the application to fit your brand. You can also edit text and change languages. Using Filemobile, you can have a native application ready for the appstore in a fraction of the time it would take you to build one of your own. Once your app is live and in the wild you can still edit text and configurations without having to re-submit to the various stores.

Social Sign-on

Filemobile makes registration easy by providing social sign-on and single sign-on (SSO) options — including via mobile apps and the mobile web. This enables quick registrations so your audience can start submitting content without a second thought. No usernames to create or passwords to remember — social sign-on makes it easy and keeps users engaged. In fact according to Janrain, 77% of users prefer social login. Of course, if a registration form is required, we offer that too and our registration system is easily customized from your admin panel.

Apps, Apps, Apps

We have native apps for iOS and Android supporting a variety of uses: Gallery, Contest, Community and User-Generated News. If you prefer to integrate Filemobile technology with your existing apps, our SDK or APIs have you covered.

Social Media Integration

The number of connections you can make with your audience is amplified when you extend your reach into social networks. Using Filemobile, content can be seamlessly shared into Facebook, Twitter and other social networks. Content such as photo/video submissions and shares, comments, and votes can be automatically pushed into news feeds. This increased exposure generates, on average, 16% additional traffic for Filemobile clients, allowing for more connections, increased referral traffic and greater program success.

Notification Center

The lines of communication between you and your audience are always open with Filemobile's Notification Center. Within minutes you can send a mobile push notification to your user base, targeting a specific geographic location or other user grouping. You can send members on a timely assignment or simply inform them of something you want them to do. When your members receive the notification they can connect directly to your communication, allowing for instant action and an engaged audience.

Maps

Geolocation is built right into the mobile applications, allowing you to engage your audience with content assignments related to their current location.

Integration

Integrating Filemobile's extended suite of APIs, feeds, and SDKs makes it the most flexible solution on the market. You can integrate Filemobile functionality into your current CMS, use only certain functionality for certain purposes, or create an entire user-generated news site using our white label applications . You have lots of options! Some common integrations include SSO registrations, Brightcove Video Cloud, Broadcast Systems, and Content Management Systems. Consult with our team of experienced professionals for the best approach for your current setup.

Reports

Track and measure program results and social impact. Time-saving filters allow you to create segmented reports for targeted insights and specific measurements.

SDK & API

Your technology team can implement social content functionality within your current infrastructure using Filemobile’s SDK and API and supporting documentation.
