Just imagine what it would be like to be standing in front of the world about to give a press conference with everyone hanging on your every word. Obviously, this is something very few people experience in their lifetime, until now. The Meedia app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is meant to give you a taste of what it would be like if you were to give a press conference that the whole world was watching.

A Unique and Engaging Idea

Part of what makes the Meedia app so impressive is just how unique it is. The developers have taken great pains not to leave anything out and really deliver a high quality product that feels like the real thing. The developers explain it as "a new way for users to engage friends, foes, family, opponents, followers, forums, fantasy sports leagues, social media communities, and anyone with a mobile device through a new and unique video experience that was once reserved for those with "celebrity" status."

The app has been created in a way that is easy to use so that it truly is accessible to all. "We provided easy steps to help record your Meedia press conference (MPC)," says the developer. "Navigate through our easy to use screens to create your own press conference setting, and choose your topic to set the tone of your MPC."

The app was released mid-2015 and since that point it's been getting a lot of positive feedback from users.

What to Expect with the App

As far as what to expect from the Meedia app how about an engaging experience? You truly will feel like a celebrity after filming your Meedia press conference. Some of the elements that can be used in your video are of you standing at a podium, a logo on the background of the screen, cameras flashing, and you can set it up so you are answering questions that the "reporters" are asking. The end result will look completely professional and sleek and can be shared with all your friends on social media and video sharing sites. Keep in mind that the medium where you post your video must be able to support videos of 30 seconds in length.

There are plenty of tools here that let you customize the experience and really give it that polished look that a true press conference would have.We mentioned being able to answer questions. The way this works is that you pre-load and record the questions that you want asked so they can play during your press conference. This gives the illusion of reporters being on-hand to ask these important questions.

So what can you use this app for?

Well, think of it as a new way to make your very own customized video blogs, discussions on important or trending topics, cover an event you attended, promote something, and even do a little trash talking just for fun. You can really let your imagination run wild with this offering.

How to Ensure Your Conference Looks Great

Through testing the app, reading comments from customers, and tips from the developers there are a few things to keep in mind which will help to ensure your press conference turns out amazing. You'll want to start with a few trial runs first. While the app is easy enough to understand, you want to pay attention to a number of different things at once, but not let this show on camera. The best way to do this is with a couple trial runs.

When you're ready to record your video be sure you are standing in front of a background that is a solid color. Ideally it should be a light color if possible.

As you set up your shot, think how it will look. If you're holding your device it's going to take away the whole feel and look of it being an actual real press conference. Prop your mobile device up on a stand to fix this problem. This also gives you the freedom to stand a few feet away from your camera, which will look better.

One thing to keep in mind is the timer that appears in the bottom left corner of the screen. It will be counting down so you know exactly how quickly you need to wrap things up. You have 30 seconds to record your press conference.
