Twitter Treasure Hunt: Find, follow, and retweet your way to over $500 in prizes!

For many people, Twitter has come to replace RSS as the go-to way to get the latest news, reviews, and how-tos, and many of you have told us that's how you keep up with iMore these days -- or @iMore more precisely. We love that, and we figured we could have a little #FollowFriday fun to help us reach even more fantastic readers on Twitter, and give something back to everyone who considers us worthy of a follow.

So we're going to have a little treasure hunt!

Starting tomorrow, Saturday July 14, once a day for the next week (7 days), each iMore editor will take a turn tweeting out a link to the treasure hunt accessory of the day (and they'll be good ones -- all thanks to the iMore Accessory Store!). Follow our Twitter streams and re-tweet the treasure hunt accessory tweet each day. Successfully find and retweet all 7 of them, and you're automagically entered to win. There'll be 7 winners, one for each accessory.

And If that's not enough, give us a #FollowFriday and you'll also be entered to the win the grand prize -- all 7 of them!

Sorry, Twitter clients, but Twitter's just not that into you...

The analogy came upon me while recording the iMore show this week -- Twitter's recent, ambiguous, ominous proclamations to developers feel to me like the tired old cliché of someone who works their ass off so their significant other can get through college and make something of themselves, only for that significant other to graduate and dump them for a hotter, richer, more glamorous life.

Dear Apple, could we please have a Kids category in the App Store?

When Apple added the new Food & Drink and Catalog categories in the App Store, it showed that Apple was still working on App Store organization, but also highlight how much work App Store organization still needs to be done. As the mother of a young child, I've been waiting a long, long time for one category in particular -- a Kids category.

Stealing in-app purchases and what it could cost you

There's a story going around today about a new hack that appears to allow users to bypass iTunes and steal in-app purchases "for free". I put "for free" in quotation marks because, as Ally pointed out in her editorial on app theft, there's no such thing as free. This time, however, the cost could be something more than money. The way I understand it, the hack in question uses a proxy, requires you to install a bogus certificate, and change DNS settings. That allows the transaction to be intercepted before it reaches iTunes, and that's what lets it cheat developers out of payment. It's also what could let the hacker collect all your information instead.

And that's dangerous.

Chrome vs. Atomic vs. Mercury: Best alternative browser for iPhone shootout!

The iPhone offers one of the best mobile browsing experiences on any smartphone platform. The built in Safari browser is great, and will only get better with iOS 6 features like iCloud tab-sync, image uploads, and smart banners. Still, it isn't, won't, and will never be for everyone. That why alternatives like Chrome, Atomic, and Mercury are so popular. But which one is the best? And which one is the best for you?

That's what we're here to find out!

Amazing Alex for iPhone and iPad review

Amazing Alex is a "new" game by Angry Birds maker Rovio. I say "new", because it has actually been in the App Store before -- as Casey's Contraptions. Rovio purchased the physics-based puzzle game and rebranded it as Amazing Alex. It promises 100 levels of challenging fun, the ability to create and share your own levels, and the frequent, free updates that have made Angry Birds an enduring hit.

Tiny Wings 2.0 for iPhone and Tiny Wings HD for iPad review

Tiny Wings is back with a big update. Now there's local multiplayer in the HD version for the iPad, and a new racing mode called Flight School, which pits you against rival hungry birds. There are 15 hand-crafted stages, all Retina-optimized. There's cloud sync, so you can keep your progress saved across iPhone and iPad. Best of all, the update is free for previous owners of the iPhone version, and Tiny Wings HD is a steal for just $2.99.

How to sign up for iMore and add your own custom avatar

iMore 2.0 will be bringing you a ton of great new features, but one of the ones you can enjoy right now is our fancy new registration and login system, the glorious way it integrates with both the blog comments and the iMore Forums, and awesome way it lets you share the same avatar between the two.

Setting is all up is a breeze. Sadly, until iOS 6 and Safari uploads are generally available, you'll need to use a desktop browser to actually upload your custom avatar file, but everything else you can do just as easily on iOS.
