iMore's hiring: Best there is at writing about apps? We want you!

Last call! Best there is at writing about apps? iMore wants you!

Whether it's the latest productivity software or the sequel to the best game ever, you can quickly digest it, figure out what's great, what's not so great, and write it up powerfully and succinctly. You're comfortable approaching and talking to developers, and are able to sort through the deluge of new and update apps that hit the store, ditch the duds, and find the gems that'll make our readers lives better (or just more fun). You understand embargoes, NDAs, and deadlines, but most of all, you love apps and love helping others get the most out of them.

UPDATE: We've gotten hundreds and hundreds of submissions! Thank you all so much! Tomorrow is that last day we'll be accepting them, and then we'll go through them over the next week or two (we want to give all of them a fair reading!). We're aiming to pick well, not fast! So if you haven't submitted anything yet, please do! If you have, you'll be hearing from us soon-ish!

You're also informed an opinionated about kids apps, family apps, educational apps, and all other things good and right in the universe. You, yes you, are the perfect person to be iMore's next app writer/editor!

If this describes and appeals to you, drop me a line at with the subject reading "iMore app writer submission", include at least one (1) sample app announcement/news article and one (1) sample app review article, and we'll explore the next steps together.

So, this will be for people who write and edit Apps? The headline is confusing.

Rene Ritchie says:

Updated. But if the headline was confusing, reading the post would clarify it greatly :)

Silentradar says:

This is for someone to write about and review apps. I suspect.

unstoppablekem says:

Good luck to the people who apply!

I see what you did there,..."Bub."

Hopefully iMore takes time to really choose the right person for the job and continue their tradition with having great writers contributing to the site. IMO Crackberry made a poor choice in bringing on Jubei Raziel as his material is considered lackluster and has been scrutinzed excessively by the CB community. I feel iMore will NOT run into this kind of problem though. :)

Nathan Bael says:

I don't dislike Jubei's material. He creates long posts that are filled with information. I can understand that not everyone likes to read a long post, but that is more opinion than anything.

Overall I think a lot of people commenting on CB are being negative just because they can. I see it happen on this site, as well as AC and WPC. It is the nature of the internet. People tend to value things more when they have to pay. These websites are free (they even give away stuff), so I think that they are potentially under-appreciated.

I have been looking for a way to get into this field but alas with no past Review Writing I don't see a point.

DennisRFreitas says:

You have to start somewhere. There are several sites you can write for build up a bit resume. Its been fun having a Mac/iOS Site. However i do mostly Video tutorials. Good Luck

Looks like a sweat shop!

walt j says:

I agree.. not my idea of a creative environment from what I can see:(

Richard Devine says:

That was our workspace at CES. It's not as glamorous as you might expect sometimes ;-)

Allyson Kazmucha says:

Most of us work from home 99.9% of the time. At events we may have small quarters but that's a few times a year. Honestly, what other job lets you play with your favorite apps and get paid for it? Not exactly sure id call that a sweat shop...

Ok I didn't realize that was on location. At our company we all work from home also. But once a month we rent a board room and all managers are required for a work session.10-15 people sit shoulder to shoulder for 10-12 hours. All of us pecking on laptops multiple conversations and the guy next to you eating a bag of chips you thought would never run out. These work session are mostly unproductive and the highlight for the day is using the rest room. Everyone's anxiety for these work session starts to build the week before. So The picture in the post triggered my anxiety. Now some smart company's like Google have a different idea of how work session environments should be. But I do realize there is only so much you have to work with on location.

Good OL MC says:

This is a great opportunity! About how long are you looking for the sample pieces to be?

Edit: Whoops, double post. Over eager :-p

Nathan Bael says:

Is this considered a part-time, freelance, or full-time position?

App developer says:

True but my suggestion is do not go for an individual developers. When every you want to create an application for your business or any other purpose always hire app development company. because they can assure you the quality of the work.
