usb_typewriter_ipadLooks like it’s that time again. We’ve finished draining the nutritious goo from our victi-I mean we’re looking for more writers!

So if you love you some iPods, iPads, and iPhones, and have access to up-to-date iOS hardware (and have a knack for this whole “writing” thing), give us a shout. We’re currently looking for reviewers and news writers to bring aboard.

Potential reviewers should be able to cut a swath through apps and games (that’s right, apps and games; you have to be up for both) without breaking a sweat, be able to critically analyze their subjects, and express themselves well and with authority. They should also be willing and able to edit their own posts and upload their own screen shots so that their work is ready for publishing as soon as they hand it in. But most of all we’re looking for someone who can manage to pull all of that off and keep things fun and interesting.

Potential newsies need to be able to turn out articles quickly and with regularity. They should have a knack for spotting the important bits in each story, getting the information out accurately, linking to sources, and be able to do it all without reading like an official press release. News writer hopefuls should also note that this position requires adherence to a set schedule, and during this time they’ll be collaborating with us directly on coverage of the day’s events. Otherwise how could we stay on top of everything?

If you think you’ve got what it takes for either of these positions, here’s our list of Musts:

– have an iPhone 5, iPad (2, mini, or later) or iPod touch (5th gen or later) and think it’s the best thing since sliced bread
– have a general knowledge of and interest in the iOS community
– can write at a higher than average level, like what you might see in a magazine or newspaper
– have some familiarity with WordPress or similar CMS platform
– reviewers: have the time to write and post at least three reviews a week
– newsies: churn out 4 to 5 news items per day and adhere to a weekly early morning schedule starting around 6am or 7am Pacific, Mon. through Fri.
– must be 18 years of age or older


What do you get? Writing for 148Apps gets you exposure. With millions of eyes reading your posts, that’s a lot of exposure to be had. You also get some money, per post, at a competitive rate. That’s not bad, right? We do ask that you only apply if you can keep up a regular posting frequency. While this isn’t a full time job, it’s not a once-in-a-while hobby, either. Our best writers are the ones that can keep the same quality output coming week after week.

If you think this is something you might be interested it, take a quick read of our review style and send us three of your best clips. These are the best portfolio works of review writing you’ve done. The closer to an app review your clips are, the better chance we’ll have of understanding your style. Don’t have any written samples? Write one up! Pick your favorite app or two and write up a 300 – 500 word review, with proper spelling and grammar, and email it to helpwanted {at} 148apps {dot} com. We look forward to hearing from you, and we’ll get back to you soon.

usb_typewriter_ipadHey there folks. 148Apps is currently in the market – the market for talented writers like you!

If you’re crazy about iPads, cuckoo for iPhones, constantly on an iPod, or can’t otherwise get enough of that iOS (and have a knack for this whole “writing” thing), then give us a shout. We’re currently looking for two more folks to bring aboard: one for reviews, and the other for news items.

Potential reviewers should be able to cut a swath through apps and games (that’s right, apps and games; you have to be up for both) without breaking a sweat, be able to critically analyze their subjects, and express themselves well and with authority. They should also be willing and able to edit their own posts and upload their own screen shots so that their work is ready for publishing as soon as they hand it in.

Hello! We’re looking for new writers with a strong passion for iOS applications and games. Do you love downloading new apps to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? Do you tell all your friends and relatives about the latest gem you’ve found in the App Store? You’re the kind of person we’re looking for.

The ideal app reviewer will devour apps and games, and will be able to write about them quickly and authoritatively. You should have a good critical eye and the ability to express yourself well. You should be able to edit your own posts and deliver them ready to publish. Most importantly? As a good app reviewer, you should be able to do all this while keeping the writing fun and interesting, using the common voice of the site.

All review writers should be able to jump back and forth amongst apps and games, but extra points if you have a passion for non-gaming apps and a nose for finding the best ones across the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Think you have the chops? Check out our requirements here:

You:
– have an iPhone 5, iPad (2, mini, or later) or iPod touch (5th gen or later) and think it’s the best thing since sliced bread
– have a general knowledge of and interest in the iOS community
– can write at a higher than average level, like what you might see in a magazine or newspaper
– have some familiarity with WordPress or similar CMS platform
– have the time to write and post at least three reviews a week
– must be 18 years of age or older

As we continue to grow at 148Apps, we’ve added a great list of writers, all producing the really fantastic reviews you expect. But it’s time to take 148Apps up another notch. It’s time to expand. Part of that involves finding an assistant editor, someone to help keep the editorial focus fine tuned and on course while I start building the next great version of 148Apps. In addition, we need to expand our writing tribe to allow us to expand our publication.

If you think you might be interested in joining us, or you know of someone who might be interested, read on for the details.
