The project created software Storini (previous working title Little J) which helps citizen journalists create news reports wherever they are and send them to their local or nearest hyperlocal news team.
The Storini platform has so far been well received whith it being fully operational with a newly launched Welsh language hyperlocal who now use it daily. It is now being rolled out to three other Hyperlocals in Wales and interest has been registered by a further 60 hyperlocals across the UK who are keen to use it when it is rolled out further.
