Check out the new iMore commenting system!

As you may have noticed we've launched an all-new, all-awesome commenting system. I should start by saying this is just the beginning and we'll be adding many features to the new system in the weeks and months to come, but for right now there are three highlight — new design that matches our new header, up/down-voting so you can support the really insightful, productive comments. (And, you know, bury other kind...), and report a comment so you can flag spam and anything truly inappropriate.

Check out the all-new iMore header!

Look all the way up! iMore got a shave and a haircut! Well, no. It's a lot more than that. A lot more design. A lot more code. A lot more work. And a lot more smarts. The new iMore header is a reflection of our growth over the last year and the many more stories, and types of stories we're covering. Our old wedding-cake navigation menu got us through some great times, don't get me wrong, but it was static, it was manual, and it was already past its limit. Our new header is fluid, responsive, dynamic, and gives us a foundation from which to grow even better, faster.

Help us help you and take the iMore 2014 Reader Survey! (Oh, and you can win free stuff, too!)

As you've no doubt noticed, 2013 was an incredible year for iMore. Our community has grown in the forums, the comments, and in the wider social networking sphere. iMore has never been better, from our coverage of the most important news to the latest and greatest in apps for your iPhone, iPad, and Mac, to the insightful editorials and in-depth help and how-tos that define our coverage. And we didn't change our name again this year!

As great as 2013 was, we want 2014 to be even better. We're always looking for new ways to better serve you, our loyal readers, with what you need to know around iOS, Mac, Apple, and the mobile technology space. You've let us know that you love the expanded coverage, and we want to know what else you might want.

So we're checking in with you — yes, you — to get your feedback on what we're doing great here on iMore, where we can improve, and what new things you'd like to see us do. We've created a survey to do just that so you can tell us what you think. It will take at least a few minutes. Yes, it's a little on the long side, but that's because we want you to give us an honest critique on how we're doing. Your opinion truly does matter to us.

Oh, and once you reach the end of the survey you'll have the option to enter for your chance to win a brand-new Apple TV! Thanks for taking the time to take our survey — it really is appreciated.

Editor's desk: What do you want to see from iMore in 2014?

2013 was a huge year for iMore. We covered CES, Macworld|iWorld, BlackBerry Live, MWC, GDC, Google IO, E3, WWDC, IFA, and completed a 10 week event all our own, Talk Mobile. We reviewed the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPad Air, Retina iPad mini, iOS 7, OS X Mavericks, and some award winning and amazing apps. Sadly, we lost Leanna Lofte but gained shared custody of Richard Devine and launched our Mac coverage with Peter Cohen. Collectively, we wrote 4,965 posts containing 1,885,784 words, and produced 7 podcasts comprising 208 episodes, including the brand new Vector. Most importantly, we once again doubled our amazing community — all of you! — to almost 7 million readers a month. That makes us one of the very biggest Apple-focused communities on the planet, which is an incredible honor and huge responsibility, especially when it comes to figuring out... just what the #@(* is next?

iOS and iOS 7 readership on iMore now dwarfs Windows and iOS 6

As might be expected, until recently most iMore readers used Windows to read iMore. That's been changing, and now the largest group of iMore readers are using iOS. That's amazing in two regards because, it shows our readership moving from a Microsoft platform to an Apple platform, and more interestingly, from traditional personal computers to mobile, very personal computing appliances. Equally amazing is how quickly iOS 7 adoption moved through our readership. Of course, the people who read iMore are probably the same people likely to update immediately, but even so within a week it all but obliterated iOS 6. Here are some rough numbers:

How to get iMore to cover your apps and games

Today's Talk Mobile was all about helping developers better market their apps. Media outlets like iMore are an important part of that marketing, yet like any resource, we have our limits. We get dozens of app submissions a day and sometimes hundreds a week, but we only have time to cover a handful. And as much as we love developers and apps, we love our readers even more, and take our responsibility to them incredibly seriously. We're only ever going to offer them the very best apps and games we can find. To put it bluntly, if something looks or works like crap, we're not going anywhere near it.

So, if you're a developer and you've made an amazing app or game, what's the best way to ensure it gets featured on iMore? There's no absolute answer to that question -- it's a classic chaos equation -- but there's a lot of things that can help, and a few that can hinder:

Editor's desk: Putting the more in iMore
