    I have been having some success with my Penny Saved apps, but I am not getting any reviews.

    I would like to exchange app reviews with other devs. You review my app and I in turn will review yours. I am in no way asking for a positive review, just an honest unbiased review of my app(s), and you should expect the same.

    Send me an IM if your interested.

    PM me, I'm interested

    Just a little question,
    I was reading through the iphone app guidelines, and one of them is that you can't cheat reviews or pay people for them. Are we against the rules?

    Only Apple can say for sure, but I'd say this is getting pretty close to that line between okay and against the rules.

    In the end (I suspect), Apple wants real users to give honest reviews of the apps they've purchased. This helps other consumers gauge the quality of each app, and make "informed" purchasing decisions.

    Over time, good apps will get better ratings and be purchased more often. Bad apps will get negative ratings and be purchased less often. This reduces the risk each consumer faces, and encourages them to keep spending money on apps -- which makes Apple more money.


    Given all of that...


    If you are each providing honest reviews of the other's apps -- including negative reviews if the app is really a pile of junk -- then it's probably fine.

    On the other hand, if you're just giving each other glowing 5 star reviews, you're breaking the spirit of Apple's rules and run the risk -- no matter how remote it maybe -- of getting your apps banned from the App Store.


    Just my $0.02.

    Can you still review apps if downloaded with a promo code? Someone who used one of my codes told me he couldn't leave a review because the system would not let him. He then downloaded the free version and was able to leave a review just fine.

    Seems to me apple may have shutdown promo code reviews because people were using them to get fake reviews in droves. Any one else able to confirm or refute this?

    I thought this at first, but to review it:
    They must sync the app with iTunes, or redeem the code on iTunes.
    For some reason, any app redeemed from a promo using just your iDevice won't let you review it until you sync.

    Ok thanks that is good to know. I'll tell him to sync with iTunes if he still wants to write a review for the version he got with the prom code. This is a good instruction to post when posting promo codes- not that I ask for or expect reviews but if some one grabs a code a review is a nice gesture.

    Do you know why? I'm having some reviews that are not going to the itunes wall...

    Using promo code or free... It's forbidden to post a nice review in a different App from a same developer, twice?

    I'm having the same problem. Only the first 3 reviews of my game show up on itunes (on the desktop). Luckily the rest show up fine on the App Store (where it matters). But still I'd like to know how to fix that.
