    If you're like me and away from your desktop or laptop when you're working all day and want to check in with the forums, that's not a problem with the iMore Forums app. In fact, I prefer using the iMore Forums app even when I'm at home with my laptop. With the current app, you can post to the forums, start a new thread, search, check notifications, check settings, send or receive messages and upload photos.

    I find the current app very useful. Rumor has it that the forums app will be updated soon, and might become part of iMore app. I'm in favor of combining the two apps. I like the idea of having one app that would include blogs, reviews, how-to's, podcasts, the iMore store with the current iMore forums app.

    Now, let's take a look at the app as I have it configured. [GUIDE] How to use the iMore Forums app-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1385911279.623235.jpg

    When I open the app, this is the first screen I see. [GUIDE] How to use the iMore Forums app-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1385911311.298448.jpg

    Across the bottom of the screen, I have notifications, latest, forum, messages and more. In notifications, I receive replies to my subscribed posts. (I also have iMore forums alerts set to show in my notification center)

    I can tap on "latest" to see the latest posts, which are searchable by unread threads, participated, in any threads which I have posted a reply or to all threads.

    I can also see the forums by category and by name. [GUIDE] How to use the iMore Forums app-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1385911421.177521.jpg

    Next, I have messages. I can check my sent and received messages here. [GUIDE] How to use the iMore Forums app-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1385911452.276589.jpg

    Finally, I can tap on more. [GUIDE] How to use the iMore Forums app-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1385911591.092472.jpg
    I can see my favorite threads. These are my subscribed threads/posts, search, people and settings.

    If you tap "edit" in the upper right corner it will take you to a screen where you can configure how your screen will look. [GUIDE] How to use the iMore Forums app-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1385911662.388673.jpg

    Well that's a quick rundown of the iMore Forums app as it stands now. I've heard that a new version is in the works and should be released in the near future. I'll update this guide when it's released. Have fun posting with the iMore Forums App!
