Capture Current

CaptureMedia
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

Current is a new app that allows you to film live stream events for top media companies using your iOS device.

You can download the app and create a profile for free. Once you've created a profile on Current, you're eligible to receive a job offer (via text message) from a media company looking to hire you to live stream a nearby event.

Background location tracking is enabled ​so that media companies can send you a job offer when you're near an event. Once you're hired for a job, the media company will also be able to track your route to the event's location.

Once you've arrived to the job location, a push notification is sent to you to initiate a live video stream. When the live stream is completed, background uploading of an HD video version (of what you just streamed) begins. You are paid by the hiring media company for your time (via PayPal) and receive a performance rating from the hiring media company after each job.

Current is a companion app to Capture.com, the enterprise platform media companies use to find and hire contributors in the Current network.


Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
