iMore for iPhone app: A guided tour

The iMore for iPhone app is here and while thousands upon thousands of you have downloaded it already, we wanted to take a moment to show it off, and show off some great features you might have missed!

iMore for iPhone was meticulously crafted to provide the absolute best reading and listening experience possible for our community. We specifically chose to focus on doing a few things really well at first, so that we had a solid foundation on which to add more and better things later. I think we accomplished that and the way I can tell is simple -- the iMore app is the only way I read iMore on my iPhone now (and a lot of you have told us the very same thing.)

If you haven't already, go ahead and download iMore for iPhone now. I'll wait. It's totally FREE and, if I do say so myself, totally awesome.

Once you're done, check out the video above for a quick guided tour from yours truly.

You'll see how to browse articles and categories, and how to re-order tabs so you get what you want, where you want, when you want it. You'll see the podcatcher, which gives you access to not only iPhone & iPad live but all the Mobile Nations shows, including Iterate and ZEN and TECH, Android Central and, and much more. And you'll see how to send us YOUR tips, so if you come across breaking news, you can instantly let us know all about it.

We want you to get the most out of your iMore experience and this app. And we want you to share your thoughts -- what you love, what you hate, and what you want to see in the upcoming version 2. (Yes, the universal iPad version!) Once you've had a chance to use iMore for iPad, leave a comment in our official iMore for iPad feature request thread and let us know what else you want to see!

iMore for iPhone app: A guided tour


Great review and great app Rene. But where did you get the red outline on your phone? It looks very nice!

The interface is lighting fast, it's connecting to the internet to pull down the data that's taking the time. We're working on a caching system for version 2 (that will also let you favorite articles.)

Thank you for the video. This is a nice clean very well designed app IMHO. I took a screenshot of the starting image of the app and I am using it as my lock and home screen wall paper.
By the way, how did you mod your iPhone's antenna band? Very nice!

Great app! Beautiful graphics and very nice use of tabbed interface and sectioned table views (plus the awesome content on iMore, of course!)

ya a caching method would be nice.. i cant seem to edit the order of the tabs. all stories should come first i feel. so that it mirrors the site.

I agree. I'd prefer to see all of the articles instead of going thru tabs to finally get it all. When I bring up the All tab and close out of the app when i"m done, it does not reopen in the All tab. Kind of annoying.

That was my one complaint too - until I figured out how to fix it. Open the More tab at the bottom of the screen, and touch the "Edit" button in the top right corner. Nowe you can drag and drop the icons in the order you want. I have "All" first, so now when I open the app, it lists all stories. You can have any four icons showing, so pick your favorites in your favorite order, but the first one opens with the app.
Awesone app guys!

Nice app, Rene. It's especially useful to have a way to easily access the podcasts. Thanks for the work on this.

would like to see push notifications for when new shows are available, that's the main thing that would differentiate between the app and the website for me

Truly enlightening cheers, I'm sure your trusty followers could possibly want a good deal more articles like this continue the excellent work.

I got the iphone new, and my first impressions of the new iphone are largely positive. Apple has once again built a product that looks good and feels great in the hand, and the user interface is perfect. I LOVE IT! I use Wapzilla as my first browser and its perfect! Thank you for making such a great browser!
