    FIRST

    Download the official iMore for iPhone app from the App Store. It's FREE, so hurry up!

    SECOND

    Read this so you know what's NOT included, WHY it's not included, and WHEN it will be coming:

    Were already planning the next version of iMore for iOS, and as the name foreshadows, the biggest priority will be delivering an insanely great Retina iPad interface. It. Will. Be. Done. Were also planning to integrate CoreData so recently read articles will cache, and youll be able to Favorite articles to store locally. Adding share via iMessage is on the list, and so is read later. We want to add a gesture shortcut to make navigating between stories faster, and we want to add search so you can find exactly what youre looking for.

    Commenting is also in the roadmap, but since were also hard at work on a better commenting system for iMore, were waiting for that before integrating it into the iMore app.

    We tried hard to integrate the iMore forums as well, both as an embedded app and as a web extension to the iMore app but it just didnt work right. Instead of being convenient it was a bit of a collision. So ultimately we made the decision early on to split the iMore Forums out into a separate app. Thats the bad news. The good news is that app is almost done now as well (I have the beta on my iPhone already!).

    Its built on the Tapatalk engine which if you follow the greater Mobile Nations family of sites you may have already guessed, given that the Android Central Forums app and CrackBerry Forums app have already hit their respective worlds and markets.

    The iMore Forums app will be out soon as well, so sit tight! Theres lots more to come!

    Give us your feedback in this thread!!

    I just downloaded it to see what it's like, however, I found out there isn't much to see so far. When I clicked on news, reviews, and apps, I was met with the following:








    I realize this is just out, but it is a little hard to give feedback on a app when not all of the content is available yet.

    Thanks for fixing it as I can now give Some feedback. After downloading and testing it out on my iPad this morning I can say it works well even though it is not optimized for the iPad yet. You guys did a nice job on the lay out of the app. I like how everything is easy to get to and I don't have to go searching all over the place to find what I am looking for. Also, as a reader of iMore's reviews, the app makes reading them much easier. Can't wait till my 4S finishes charging so I can test it out on the iPhone. I know you are probably still tweaking things with the app, so I'll post any issues that I find as they come up, but so far it looks awesome, Rene. Please come out with the forum app soon.

    True, however, there are some who don't post on other forums or for one reason or another just want to have one specific forum app that they can use for individual forums that they are on and that is who an app like this would be targeted for. I use Tapatalk and do like it, but I would use the iMore forum app as well when it is released.

    I just downloaded and tested the app and I am seeing the articles on the main screen. I can't wait for the forum app. Thanks, Rene, Seth, Tammy and Dave and everyone else who has worked and will work on the future versions of these apps.

    Since I'm not a techie, just wondering why there has to be two separate apps: one for the articles/reviews and one for the forums?

    TIA

    Wish there was a way to pinch and zoom. Would also like to see the ability to change the font size and also be able to rotate to landscape mode.
