About

Hi There – thanks for visiting iPad Insight. You’ve landed at one of the first sites that was solely dedicated to the iPad after its release in 2010. As time has marched on, we have expanded our scope to cover all Apple products, but this site will always place a priority on its namesake- the iPad.

iPad Insight blog was founded in January, 2010 by Patrick Jordan. Patrick worked as a ‘techie’ for many years and mobile technology has always been a passion him. Over the years as the site generated more and more readers, other avid iPad users and reviewers joined the iPad Insight team, providing iPad focused content from a broader perspective.

Mr Jordan moved on to other things a few years ago, but the site continues on with its focus on Apple products, especially the iPad. James Rogers, who worked for Mr Jordan here and at Just Another iPhone Blog and iSource, is the current Managing Editor of the site.

If you want to keep up with all our latest content you can subscribe to our RSS feed, follow us on Twitter, or check out our Facebook page.

I hope you’ll enjoy the site, and come back and visit often.

A Few Words on iPad App Reviews & Mentions Here:

As the iOS platform (including the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch) has gained in popularity and the iOS apps platform has exploded, the number of sites covering and reviewing apps has also exploded.  Policies on which apps will get mentioned and reviewed vary widely across sites.  Some sites accept, and even demand, payment in order to review an 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 app, covering an app, or reviewing an app.

The above policy applies to any app that is advertised on this site as well.  Apps / apps 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 do 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.
