About iPhoneography blog
The iPhoneography blog was formed in November 2008 and was created to provide fellow iPhoneographers with the best single source to all things related to iPhone photography.
The iPhoneography blog code of practice
The goal of the iPhoneography blog is to provide honesty and truthful reviews, that reveal both the good and the bad that we find as we test these apps, and to ensure our integrity, we follow the following code of practice:
The iPhoneography blog does not accept any sort of payment for mentioning or reviewing an app or product. We do not accept any sort of payment or compensation to fast-track an “express review.”
Unless otherwise disclosed in the story or review, we purchase the apps and products we review. Occasionally, we receive promo codes and betas from developers or sample products to review or to give away. These do not guarantee that we will mention an app or product or review them. When we receive a freebie, we’ll state it clearly in the review or story.
Promo codes do not effect the results of our reviews. We do not trade promo codes for a guarantee of a positive review.
We do not guarantee reviews or mentions in exchange for ad purchases. Developers and companies who advertise here are treated the same as those who don’t.
All advertisements will be clearly marked as such. While we may publish a piece written by an employee of an app developer or manufacturer, they will be written from the standpoint of an expert in their field and not as an “Infomercial.” Any connections or possible conflicts of interest will be clearly disclosed in the article. We do not publish “Advertorial” pieces.
We will always write the truth about an app, product or service regardless of whether it’s good or bad.
We will not publish a review of an app, product or service that was not tested hands-on by the author of that review.
We are not employed by Apple Computer or any app or product developer for iPhone. We do own more than one iPhone and several Apple computers.
The only criteria we use in determining whether or not to write about an app or product is if it is relevant to the iPhoneography community and if we find the app or product compelling enough to write about it, good or bad. We pretty much write about apps that pique our interest, apps that we use ourselves (or would like to use), or to test — to refute or support — claims made in App Store descriptions for the benefit of our readers.
