Tom's Launches Two iPhone Apps

Tom's has hit the App Store!

It's been a long time coming but the day is finally here; Tom's Hardware and Tom's Guide readers can now download official apps from the iPhone App Store.

We know it sucks that you have to be sitting at your desk or in front of your computer to read up on that graphics card you're thinking of buying or to check out our latest charts. With that in mind, development have built a separate app for both Tom's Hardware and Tom's Guide.

The former gives you access to the latest charts, benchmarks, hardware news and reviews, while the later gives you access to all our consumer electronics product reviews and news. Both allow you to publish or share content via Facebook and Twitter, and offer access to the comments sections of articles and reviews.

The best part is that all content is loaded in the cache when you launch the app so even if you're stuck chaperoning a boy scouts camp-out in the back-arse of nowhere, we'll be right there with you.

Both apps are free and can be downloaded from the app store.

    What about WinMo? Most of your readers seem to dislike Apple and you release an Apple app :D

    Come on Tom's... you guys know that iPhone isn't in your demographic. We are intelligent people that know how to use technology... so break out the Android app already... ;)

    I read the main site on my Nokia N95 with Opera Mini 5 Beta 2 just fine! I have no idea how the iPhone's web browser handles the site, so it might me a welcome addition, but I'm quite happy with what I have (it's free too). Opera Mini 5 is quite a welcome upgrade for on the fly reading. I don't recall the last time I used Nokia's built in browser - that thing just loads the page in it's entirety, with all the quality - it eats megabytes for breakfast, Opera on the other hand compresses everything :D

    You should check out Tom's Guide--iPhone is well within our demographic :)

    this is like saying that Safari on iPhone sucks balls so much, you need a separate app just to be able to access the thg news...which you don't need, anyways, cause you probably have an un-upgradeable Mac!

    whateva...

    We're working on other platforms. The Apple App Store for iPhone came before the Android market and the Blackberry app world. Don't worry, we'll get there.
