As the world is celebrating the turn of the calendar to January 1st, 2013 around the globe, iFans wanted to take a moment and wish everyone that follows the tradition a happy, healthy and safe new year.
Today also provides a good opportunity to discuss the direction iFans will be headed towards going into next year, so I will take a moment now to reflect on some of the changes that we have in store.
To begin with, we have plans to implement a new top bar on every thread within the iFans discussion forums. This bar will contain useful links to get the answers to your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch questions, discover the latest apps and games, find a new wallpaper or theme, browse our upcoming cases and accessories catalog, and much more.
This new top bar initiative will be highly tailored towards incoming visitors from Google searches. We will also be encouraging these users to sign up for the discussion forums, to make the community a livelier place for everyone. Moreover, we’re opening our arms even wider to all smartphone owners — Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 10 users are all welcome.
We don’t want to spill the beans too much, however, so you’ll just have to wait and see what 2013 has in store for iFans. We’re really excited about moving into next year and emphasizing iFans as a leading hub for iOS devices, while also embracing competing platforms. I invite you to share your thoughts about iFans heading into the new year. All suggestions, questions or comments are read, and we genuinely appreciate the feedback.
