What should you post here?
: Things related to iPhone (and iPod Touch) applications. This includes reviews, problems, announcements, development questions, etc.
: There can be a fine line between posting an announcement for your new iPhone app and blatent spam. To help with this, we're limiting app announcements to established members only
. You can't announce your app in your first few posts. Also, keep the post brief. Don't make people scroll through 12 screenshots and a bunch of marketing copy.
Announcements should have the [ANN] tag before the thread title.
How to write a Review
: Find an app you like? Did you just waste 99 cents on something you wouldn't give to your worst enemy? Write a review.
Here are our suggestions for what to include in your review:
App Name - This one should be pretty obvious. It should also be part of your thread title.
Price - How much did you pay for it? Was it on sale?
Version - What version are you reviewing?
Age - What is the age limit/restriction on this app?
Link - Link to the application in the iTunes app store and any normal web presence they might have.
Compatible with - Does it require GPS or something that only an iPhone (not a Touch) would have?
Stars - Go crazy here. Want to rank the graphics separately? Go ahead? Controls? Sure. Fun factor? Ok. We only ask that you include an Overall score at the end. We've created some stars to make this easier. They're in the "more..." section of the smilies. Go anywhere from 1 to 5 stars (in half increments). Eventually you'll just learn the shortcuts and type out : 3.5stars : without the spaces. It'd look like this:
Sound fx: :3.5stars:
Reviews should have [Review] at the beginning of their thread titles.
Include a screenshot to explain your problem, or as part of your review
. To take a screenshot, hold your home button and press the top right button at the same time. The screenshot will be in your camera roll.
