About iSource

Hi There -and thanks for visiting.

iSource.com is here to provide news, reviews, and hopefully some good insight on all things Apple related – iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMacs – hopefully you can guess why we’re called iSource. With coverage of devices, apps, rumors, tips, tricks, tutorials, humor, industry news and everything in betweeen, we’re excited to serve the folks who equally love their iWhatever.

iSource launched in 2007 under another name: JustAnotheriPhoneBlog.com. But people who are passionate about their iPhone are often enthusiasts of all Apple’s products, not to mention must of the hardware and software overlaps and integrates, and our goal is to be your one-stop-shop for curing your insatiable crave for Apple.

We hope you’ll enjoy this site, and come back and visit often …

A Few Words on App Reviews & Mentions Here:

As the iPhone has gained in popularity and the iPhone apps platform has exploded, the number of sites covering and reviewing iPhone apps has also exploded.  Policies on which iPhone apps will get mentioned and reviewed vary widely across sites.  Some sites accept, and even demand, payment in order to review an iPhone app, or to review it sooner rather than later.

It seems worthwhile to mention here a few of our policies on this subject:

We do not request or accept any sort of payment – ever – for mentioning an iPhone app, covering an app, or reviewing an app.

The above policy applies to any app that is advertised on this site as well.  Apps and app publishers who advertise here are treated 100% the same as those who don’t.  No guaranteed mentions or reviews because of an ad placement.  All potential new advertisers are told these things right up front.

Here is how we choose to mention an app on this site:

  • One of us finds it interesting

Here is how we choose to review an app on this site:

  • One of us finds it interesting and/or useful enough to want to review it

Accessory reviews are treated similarly to app reviews. We will specify in the review whether the item was purchased by the author or provided by a company for site review.

We try our best to produce thorough and fair reviews.  Hopefully we manage this most of the time.  One thing we can guarantee though – all of the time – is that our posts and reviews are *not* paid for.  If you see an app or accessory covered here, it’s because we thought enough of it to want to cover it.

We are also members of OATS – the Organization for App Testing Standards.  Here is a brief description of the mission of OATS:

O.A.T.S. is a group of sites that were brought together with the goal of improving the editorial ethics and standards in the emerging world if iPhone application and game review sites.
