Happy New Year from iMore!

It's been a hell of a year. In 2012, with your help and support, we changed our name to iMore and relaunched on a powerful new platform with fantastic new forums. We released the official iMore app and some forum apps to go with it. We broke a bunch of news and wrote a bunch of editorials and reviews, we loved a lot of apps, and you did to, and we began our hall of fame.

iMore hit almost 2 million readers and 10 million pageviews a month and, as a network, Mobile Nations hit over 12 million readers and 56 million pageviews.

We launched a couple new podcasts, including Debug, a companion show to Iterate, we like to think of as DVD extras for apps, and Ad hoc, where we bring together a bunch of nerds to talk about everything but mobile (like Star Wars and James Bond). Yours truly also joined the team at MacBreak Weekly, bringing you a couple extra hours of Apple talk a week.

It's been a hell of a year. Crazy as it sounds, we're still only just getting started.

Next week brings CES 2013, and next month, Macworld|iWorld 2013. We'll be covering both. There are going to be new and better features on the website -- you'll be seeing some of them soon on our sibling sites. We're working on hard on making the forums best in class. We've got the iMore app 2.0 well underway, with a lot of your most requested features, including commenting and push notifications. The forum apps are going somewhere really interesting as well.

We've got some amazing guests lined up for the next few podcasts as well. We've already posted the iMore show's 2013 preview, and tomorrow we'll be posting a special Iterate interview with Pacific Helm. All of them.

And that's just the stuff I can tease.

Once again, it's all thanks to you, our readers, listeners, and viewers. We appreciate each and every one of you, and what you allow us to do for you and with you.

You're why 2013 is going to be our biggest, best year ever.

Thank you, and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from iMore!


Happy New Year to iMore too!
Thank you all for a great iMag. I only found you a few months ago, but you have become one of my regular reads.

Happy new year to the iMore team.

There was a marked improvement on iMore all through this year because of the hard work all of you have been doing, specially Rene and Leanna. That just make me want to come back and participate, so let me enjoy this opportunity to thank you and to wish all of you a happy and fruitful 2013.
