TouchArcade (stylized as toucharcade) is a mobile games journalism website. It was launched in 2008 as a sister site of MacRumors by its founder Arnold Kim and Blake Patterson. TouchArcade also hosts a forum and a weekly podcast.[1]


TouchArcade was launched in 2008 as a blog by MacRumors founder Arnold Kim and Blake Patterson.[2][3] The spinoff site "(tracked) the new games available for the iPhone and iPod Touch".[4] It also included articles, reviews and a forum.[5] Eli Hodapp became editor-in-chief in 2009.[6]

In 2012, TouchArcade released an iOS app which included mobile game listings.[7][8] In June 2015, TouchArcade launched a Patreon for crowdfunded donations. Hodapp explained that mobile game journalism has been struggling as developers shifted towards in-app advertising, and that ad revenue for the website was plummeting.[9][10] Hodapp stepped down from his position in 2019 to focus on his role as co-founder of GameClub,[11] and Jared Nelson succeeded him as editor-in-chief.[12]


In 2009, CNET ranked TouchArcade sixth on its list of the top ten gaming blogs.[2] Time named it one of The 50 Best Websites of 2011 and described its reviews as a "cogent, reliable guide" to the games in the App Store.[5]
