App World Reviews

One of my apps got reviewed, but only as a 1-star.  The comment was 'test'.  Assuming this was a test, will it be removed so the 1-star does not weight the post-release ratings?

Re: App World Reviews

John, two thoughts.


1. Asking in the App World Development forum might get a larger audience of people with a clue about that.


2. Possibly it wasn't a test by a RIM employee, but by someone who has a PlayBook legitimately and who wanted to test out App World ratings for themselves.  (Assuming anyone fits that category.)


Certainly if it was a RIM test, it shouldn't be left there.  Maybe they'll do a "flush" of all ratings for PlayBook apps before launch.

Re: App World Reviews

The rating looks to be by a RIM employee - I've seen similar ratings get removed within a few days on other apps.  Looks to just be temporary testing of App World and the ratings should be gone before release.

Re: App World Reviews

Wouldn't be such a big deal if they tested the 5-star rating, instead of the 1 Smiley Wink
