A new iPhone application from OK! Magazine creates a social network for users to report star sightings through geo-tagged images.
Aligning itself with the trend of location-aware mobile services, a new app from OK! Magazine makes it more difficult for celebrities to hide from the public eye. A service that gossip bloggers would consider a godsend, the Ok Celeb Spotter iPhone app creates a proximity-based social network for users to report celebrity sightings in real-time. Citizen journalism has paved the way for an upcoming wave of citizen-paparazzo. Through incorporating Google Maps and geo-tagging features, it streamlines the process of celebrity stalking to a highly-convenient degree that makes the hunt for local celebrities and bumping into Angelina Jolie a breeze.
