iMore app contest! Comment away for your chance to win a FREE iPhone!

iMore app contest! Get commenting for your chance to win a FREE iPhone!

Leave great comments during the month of March and you're entered to win a free iPhone!

The iMore 2.0 app is here! That's right, in 2013, iMore re-revolutionized our app, and we're thrilled to finally get it into the App Store and onto your iPhones! And it wouldn't be Mobile Nations if we didn't celebrate with a contest. So... We're giving away an iPhone!

How to enter!

  1. Download the free iMore app from the App Store - iTunes link
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling us you want to enter
  3. Start leaving high quality comments on all the other articles that interest you

How we'll choose the winner!

  1. We'll randomly pick an entrant from the comments on this post.
  2. We'll check their iMore profile to see how often and how well they commented this month.
  3. If they're awesome, with tons of high quality comments, they'll win a free iPhone (technically a $500 App Store gift certificate).

Why Step 3? It removes spammers, trolls, litterbugs, and people who simply post "FIRST! ZOMG I WANNA WIN" on every article from the mix, clearing the skies for awesome community members like you!

Contest ends March 31, 2013 at 11:59pm PT, and our usual rules apply.

So start commenting!!

That's it, that's all! Get the new iMore app, comment often, and comment well, and you're entered to win a FREE iPhone!

I just wanted to say that I want to enter the contest to win an iPhone, or rather, a $500 app store gift card. Teehee. I need to upgrade my iPhone 4 eventually and what a great way to do it. I have downloaded the iMore 2.0 app and it's as fluid as Apple's iOS. Great job representing, iMore. And thank you for giving us so many chances to win so many things. It's always fun to join in and not only read. Contribution is key in having a successful web page. Thanks, iMore. Good luck everyone.

Count me in too. Thanks iMore!

Team George says:

Really interested in the debate about the future of Apple. I know Rene that you believe the focus needs to be on services. However, reading Panzarino's recent comments on battery life reminded me that the next IPhone still need to focus on this area, as poor battery performance really does affect the ordinary customer more than document storage and syncing. Perhaps the two areas are inter-related, as the cloud must affect battery consumption.

Jack Desmond says:

Yes! Count me in! It's a GREAT time to be a tech consumer/enthusiast, isn't it? ;-)
