The National Press Photographers Association's first iPhone and iPod Touch application is now available for free at Apple's iPhone App Store. It enables you to get the "best in visual journalism industry news," while putting photojournalism into a global spotlight beyond just the profession's insiders.
NPPA executive director Jim Straight says this app is just the first in a series -- future ones will adapt specific features of the NPPA Website.
The NPPA iPhone App allows users to view a live feed of news stories from NPPA's Web site as well as access many of NPPA's most popular member features and services, including NPPA's calendar of upcoming workshops, seminars, and educational events, and the organization's monthly and yearly contests and professional development opportunities.More info here.

App users can also reach NPPA features such as "Find A Photographer" and NPPA's online professional mentoring program for student photojournalists.
