The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
There are lots of ways to tell a story. Some stories are made for video, others work nicely with words and a picture, and a few are just screaming for a photo gallery. Or a graphic. Or a sound clip. Or maybe an animation.
Which is why the iReport.com story tools were made to handle all kinds of video, image and audio files, and build them into tabbed galleries that let the content do the storytelling instead of the medium.
Trouble is, when you're checking out iReport.com in a public place (ceiling-less cubicle, anyone?), you probably want to know which stories contain video or audio before they fill air with the sounds of breaking news.
So today we added little icons that signal what’s behind the headline you're about to click on. What do you think? Are they useful?
YES That is a great idea. Now you know if the story is a picture story or a video story before you click on it. Nice job :)))))
