When Apple introduced iOS 7 back at WWDC 2013, the new look and new experience forced a lot of developers to put their update plans on hold and scramble to rethink and redesign their apps to fit into the brave, bold new world. That's precisely what happened to us with the iMore for iPhone app. Rebuilt practically from scratch, iMore for iPhone 3.0 is now iOS 7 native in every sense of the word, and we can't wait for you to try it!

Now, some things have moved or changed in the transition. You can no longer re-arrange and customize tabs, because the tabs are gone and an iOS 7-style sidebar is in its place. Favorites are gone, as are options for Instapaper and Pocket, but iOS 7 Reading Lists is now supported. (We didn't have time to re-add Instapaper and Pocket, but if you want it, let us know and we'll include it in one of the next updates.) Podcasts are still there, of course, but we're letting Control Center handle the persistent play, pause, skip, etc. duties.
What we've gained, however, is all shades of awesome. We've still got all the recent news, editorials, help and how-tos, app and accessory reviews, and podcasts you can handle, and a new feature section right on top so you can always, easily find the big stories. We've also got a screaming fast new display engine that feeds you articles pretty much as fast as you can get to them.
You can also still login with Twitter, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, as well as Mobile Nations Passport, and comment right from the app - now with avatars and new, nifty, threaded view. And you can still share via Messages, Mail, Twitter, and Facebook.
As to the future, yes, we're busy working on dynamic fonts, push notifications, and on an iPad version. We're also working on forum integration so that you can have all your iMore, all in one place. And that, still, is only the beginning.
If you have feedback for the tech team or want to report any bugs you might come across, please use this forums thread so we can track everything in one place:
We really appreciate all of the time and attention you give us, and we want to give you best app we can in return. So. download it, try it out, and let us know what you think!
