About iPhone Campus

What is iPhone Campus?

iPhone Campus is a collaboration to build and share the iPhone and iPod touch information, including how to, tricks, hacks, jailbreak, unlock, application reviews, news, and application development. Imagine if every iPhone user on Earth had an expert coach who could teach them how to do anything on iPhone. Eventually, our site should contain accurate instructions on almost every imaginable topic about iPhone. By contributing your knowledge to iPhone Campus, you will be helping iPhone users all over the world learn something new.

How does iPhone Campus work?

It takes a lot of people to weed the iPhone Campus.

iPhone Campus is a wiki, which is a web site that anyone can write and anyone can edit. Any visitor to iPhone Campus can create a new page to write about how to do something. Once the page is submitted, any other visitor can edit, improve, or change the page. Over time, the quality of the page rises as many people make improvements. All changes on the site are displayed on "recent changes" and also in the "page history" of each specific article. iPhone Campus works because we trust our users to behave in a manner which helps others. As a result, our users quickly remove vandalism, nonsense, and material that is inappropriate for our iPhone guild.

How can I help?

Please improve iPhone Campus by editing any page that needs help. Browse our articles in the early stages of development and see if you can add some information. If you are a good speller, these articles will benefit from your expertise. Share your knowledge if you can find a topic not yet covered by writing a new page by clicking "Create a iPhone Campus Article" in the left side bar of most pages on the site. If you need ideas of topics to write you can look at a list of suggested articles made by other users. Be sure to search first, though, as many of the suggested articles have already been written. You are welcome to edit any existing page you find on the site. Read this page to learn more ways to contribute to iPhone Campus. Take the iPhone Campus Tour to learn more even more.

How does iPhone Campus support itself financially?

iPhone Campus needs funds to sustain its operations, but rather than ask our users for contributions, we have chosen to display tasteful, non-obnoxious advertising on the website. We do not have pop-up ads, pop-under ads, spyware, or other scumware. Our advertising is highly minimal. In fact, we don't show advertising at all to registered users. We think that tasteful advertising is the most unobtrusive way to fund our operations.
