iView: Be a friend of iPhone Life

Have you benefited from iPhone Life? Perhaps you've discovered great apps and accessories, discovered time-saving tips, or decided which Apple iDevice to purchase. Maybe you've enjoyed the ability to read iPhone Life in print and on the iPhone, iPod and desktop. Perhaps your company has had products or services written about, providing valuable publicity. 

Our unusual business model

Although we've been in business 25 years, as a consumer publication company, we're quite unusual. First of all, we publish only one magazine at a time, going deep into a single platform. That means iPhone Life and the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch get all our attention. Secondly, we work with real world expert end users like you: you create the great content for iPhone Life and iPhoneLife.com.

How-To-Guide-high-resDuring these 25 years, we've remained small and have survived tremendous change: change in our core subject, mobile technology; change in the publishing industry with the Internet, and changes in the economy.

99.9% of iOS users have yet to hear about iPhone Life

Although we have over 100,000 readers, the vast majority of the one hundred million plus iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users have never heard of iPhone Life.

In 2011, we will publish two bonus guides along with four regular issues.
