The best apps for #MOJO and social video storytelling

These are the apps I use to produce social video stories, for #MOJO (mobile journalism) and mobile filmmaking. 


I dedicate a pane for each task and the first one is the first step for any visual story - Capture. 

Doing this helps me find my recording and live apps quickly - which is very helpful for covering breaking news.

Below is my list of top apps as of June 2016. 

(For my broadcast clients I have some different choices that are tailored to their workflows and story formats.)
