The all new iMore for iOS 7 app is here! Download now!

iMore 3.0 for iPhone puts all the best Apple related news, how-tos, app and accessory reviews, podcasts, and more in the palm of your hand!

When Apple introduced iOS 7 back at WWDC 2013, the new look and new experience forced a lot of developers to put their update plans on hold and scramble to rethink and redesign their apps to fit into the brave, bold new world. That's precisely what happened to us with the iMore for iPhone app. Rebuilt practically from scratch, iMore for iPhone 3.0 is now iOS 7 native in every sense of the word, and we can't wait for you to try it!

Now, some things have moved or changed in the transition. You can no longer re-arrange and customize tabs, because the tabs are gone and an iOS 7-style sidebar is in its place. Favorites are gone, as are options for Instapaper and Pocket, but iOS 7 Reading Lists is now supported. (We didn't have time to re-add Instapaper and Pocket, but if you want it, let us know and we'll include it in one of the next updates.) Podcasts are still there, of course, but we're letting Control Center handle the persistent play, pause, skip, etc. duties.

What we've gained, however, is all shades of awesome. We've still got all the recent news, editorials, help and how-tos, app and accessory reviews, and podcasts you can handle, and a new feature section right on top so you can always, easily find the big stories. We've also got a screaming fast new display engine that feeds you articles pretty much as fast as you can get to them.

You can also still login with Twitter, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, as well as Mobile Nations Passport, and comment right from the app - now with avatars and new, nifty, threaded view. And you can still share via Messages, Mail, Twitter, and Facebook.

As to the future, yes, we're busy working on dynamic fonts, push notifications, and on an iPad version. We're also working on forum integration so that you can have all your iMore, all in one place. And that, still, is only the beginning.

If you have feedback for the tech team or want to report any bugs you might come across, please use this forums thread so we can track everything in one place:

We really appreciate all of the time and attention you give us, and we want to give you best app we can in return. So. download it, try it out, and let us know what you think!

Special thanks to our app developer, Neil Sainsbury, to our web developers Tom Kaminski and Steph Koenig, to Marc Edwards for our awesome new icon, to Silvia Gatta for making the Essence glyphs, and to Nick Arnott and all of our beta testers for their feedback.

Said it before guys.
This app is befitting the iOS 7 experience. Love it. Good job all around.

Posting from the app right now. This. Thing. Is. BEAUTIFUL. Push notifications for new articles would be awesome in that future update. Can't wait to see what's in store.

Nice app upgrade. On par with the your network partners. Looks way better than 1.0 version and the functionality is great.

Wow, really nice update. I have always been a Safari guy reading the site on the iPhone, but it looks like this update will change that.

Great job!! It looks and functions perfectly to blend with iOS 7, + your one of the first tech news apps to do this!!

Really liking the new layout. Good job guys. Easier to navigate. Only thing probably add a tab for current contests that you guys may be running at the time.

iMore 3.0 looks awesome! Pocket inclusion will be appreciated, as well as rewind/forward audio player. Felicitaciones!

Loving the new update, you guys have done and do an amazing job with the site, and now with the app! The only thing I would add in a future update would the timestamps on the articles that were in the old version so I can remember where I left off!

Love it on the iPhone.
On my iPad, the app icon is just the iOS 7 icon grid. The nice blue icon on the iPhone is not there.

I like how the new app is simple just like ios7. Also like the new redesign and the updated comments section which is much improved from before. I would like to see the comments section improve though, in the sense that when someone replies to another's comments there some form of indication, or arrow which let's following the thread a bit easier, rather than just and indentation.

Stated this on the bug and feature request page, but worth repeating here.

Email seems to work fine for sending to pocket. I, personally, don't mind the extra step to get things to pocket if it allows you to focus elsewhere, as I am sure that if it was a feature most people used you would be adding it back.

One suggestion: can you auto populate the email subject with the article title or something? Would be a good add.

This is a well thought out app; still looking forward to be able to use your app on a new iPad Mini Retina Display when it comes out.

The app is very well done! I noticed the old one wasn't always in sync with the web page, i.e., reading online with Safari had articles that were not yet loaded in the app version, so I hardly ever used the app. Hopefully, that's fixed.

Looks great! Love all the new changes! Great job and thanks! Will there be similar changes to the imore forums app?

Sent from the iMore App

Wonderful job guys, absolutely love the update. I'm especially enjoying the updated icon for some weird reason so props to whoever designed it. It's been great seeing the site progress over the last year or so and I'm sure you guys have even more planned for the future. Keep up the good work!

Sent from the iMore App

I love the intuitive design and just the gorgeous app icon! I'm glad the update wasn't just a "fresh coat of paint" but instead is subtle and most importantly more functional than ever. Thank You

Can't seem to play podcast videos in landscape. I rotate my device, and nothing. It wants to stay in portrait mode.

Great job but........there is one little thing that did not stay on this version and that is the ability to save favorite articles for reading offline. I love that feature in the old version but that's now gone or has it? I can't, for the life of me, find it on new version. iMore team, please return that feature asap! Other than that, this is a v good update.

Sent from the iMore App

While saving it to Readling List is there as an option which is fine but it's pretty inconvenient as I'd have to jump out of the iMore app and onto Safari in order to read it. Last version IMO is better where I can save it within the app rather than reading it out of the app, don't you agree? Does others here feel the same? I saved many articles so I felt a bit aggrieved to see them all gone on this new version as I didn't bother saving it somewhere else.

Haven't had a chance to try the update yet, might start using it instead of downloading the iMore Podcast into the Padcasts app.

Nice to see everyone agreeing on a thread! A pretty unanimous "fantastic effort" on the new app's design and ease of use ....from me too. Well done.

I just may have to delete Flipboard now Rene and access the site right through this app now. You guys are awesome people and this is an awesome site. I'm sure your hard work here is just a reflection of who you all are outside of this site. I appreciate all that you have done with iMore. :)

It's great thank you!! Of course the iMore team will be submitting updates to the app. Here are my thoughts: Return landscape mode and choosing font size please. Also a way to mark favorites as the "reading list" feature does not work for me. Also changing avatar is a bit buggy. Buy thanks for the new app update!

Sent from the iMore App

Great App!!! Thank god you guys improved the Display Engine in the App. It was really terrible, almost to the point of me abandoning the app experience all together and going the vanilla route of using the Safari web experience.

I do have two major issues with this new version. The first issue is I believe a major bug. There seems to be a bug where watching a YouTube video, like the recent posting from Richard Devine in reviewing the iMovie app, it would not rotate into landscape mode and instead stay in portrait mode. Obviously, this is annoying but I'm assuming it's a bug and can be rectified.

The other major issue, is one that has already been pointed out by Rene as a previous feature. I'm a big user of third-party "read-it-later" services like Instapaper and I would love to get back that ability in this new version of the app. Also, it would be great if you not only restored the ability to use Instapaper, Pocket, etc., but also incorporate Notes / Archiving services such as Evernote. If you could first fix those two glaring issues, I'd be a happy camper. :)

There are a few other quibbles, that have been mentioned in previous posts by other users (i.e. time-stamps, etc.) but I'm assuming you'll rectify those issues in later updates. All in all, I absolutely love the new iOS 7 ready iMore App experience and I'll definitely be using the app as my primary way to read iMore. So far, job well done! :)

Love the new app. Can we get notifications? Would like to be notified every time a new article is posted. Also, how about an 'Open in Chrome' option?

Nicely done! Everything from the type to smooth scrolling is top notch.

(And if ads were to be added at some point, please find a slightly different method than the hideous strip at the bottom of the screen)

Sent from the iMore App

Just a heads up. I redownloaded this app and it gave me the old iMore app! Not upset or anything but just wondering if anyone knows why this is? It took me a few tries to get the new app back. iMore bug? Or App Store bug?

iPhone 5s iOS 7.0.3.

Great app. Would love to access the forums from the sidebar though, as the seperate imore forums app always force closes when I try to use it.

Great update iMore. U guys are awesome! I check this app every day for all my apple news.

Sent from the iMore App

Love the new design, love the new icon!
Three things needed to make it great:

Landscape mode! Absolutely necessary for me. (Which, I see in the comments above, you are working on, thanks!)

Direct Pocket integration (as well as services other folks use, like Instapaper). This was one of my favorite features of the iMore app prior to iOS 7.

And/or, as another poster mentioned, the ability to save articles (w/comments) for reading offline.

Otherwise, the app is beautiful!

Loving the new app. My only request would be to have the forums here as well, just like they are done on the iMore Forums app. I would great to have everything together in one app without losing any of the apps features.

I love iMore, especially when they get an update! Everything in the new application has been redesigned to compliment the new iOS7 look. It's the same app, but with major improvements. iMore has been keeping us up to date with the latest new on Apple, and their new design has completely changed the way we look at our devices and the app itself. Keep making improvements and working hard!

This app is awesome! You guys obviously put some work into it. Love that you can swipe from article to article in a continuous fashion. Forum integration is a great idea. Unless I'm missing something editing typos would be great addition as well. All in all phenomenal job. Keep it coming.

Sent from the iMore App

I have to say the commenting system on the app is amazing! I don't think I've ever tried an easier way to comment in articles. Nice job!

Sent from the iMore App

Really love the app update!! Massive improvement (and the old one wasn't half bad). Also, keep up the high quality photos on posts! One of my favourite things about iMore besides the content.

Sent from the iMore App

I really like this app. To be honest I had the original version if the app and found it frustrating and stopped using it. This new version is so user friendly.
