There are plenty of reasons for develepors to hate the iTunes review system. The problem mainly lies in the way that uninformed or biased reviews can negatively affect the success of a good app.

If you search for some of your favorite apps in iTunes and look at the reviews, chances are you’ll see a lot of 1-star “sucks” or 5-star “this is awesome” comments. If you’re lucky, you might stumble across a review that’s half as good as a recent 5-star rating for Color…

Color is a new social photography app that’s been making waves in the tech sphere (we featured Color on last week’s picks of the week). Thanks to Mike, we have the pleasure of reading an amazing review by iTunes user Ghostmoth,


What do you think about this review for Color? Pretty brilliant, huh?

    Stupid too damn long obviously a writer or some imaginative nerd. A waste of time and space beside the app sucks it doesn’t do squat it’s useless.

      “chances are you’ll see a lot of 1-star “sucks” or 5-star “this is awesome” comments.”

      Thanks for reinforcing that.

      • Jason Masters

        Your welcome and this app does suck..

    • QBert

      You’re still alive?!?! Fuckin troll.

      • Thomas

        He’s not trolling…

      • Jason Masters

        At least I’m brave enough to use my real name dickbert!!

      • Pirates Suck

        Thomas, he is the phucking Head Supreme Troll Overlorlord Emperor.

        And I’m certain “Jason Masters” is your real name.

        Idiot. And the sad thing is, you have a fan in Thomas.

      And the author’s point is made valid.

    I like the one small bar of AT&T service you’re getting.

    Great review – though all these stuff like rating and reivewing app people (iTunes Users) see them as comments, I mean realy everybody needs to review all the apps they wanna say they like or dislike by rating it? Apps also should stop asking people with pathetic popups to rate the app 😛

  • ddr

    I love funny reviews, and I think this one is one of the best I’ve read… Very imaginative! =D

  • Lee

    Cant say ive used the app but thats a great review.

  • A good review means a lot for me, but I pŕefer the video reviews or demos, I hope some day apple include official video reviews in the description of the apps

  • Doug

    The best review i saw was on that makes gays straight app that got pulled. It said something like.

    “Wow. This app really works. I used to be a drug addicted homo sexual but after using this app I have become a normal productive member of society. Now all I think about is having sex with women.”

    It had me laughing.

    • Jason Masters

      I saw that one but the other one I saw said it didn’t work lol. That cracked me up!

    • Yellow

      No joke, that was me. I got the idea after reading a review saying that the app would never cure homosexuality, so I decided to “prove” them wrong. What a coincidence that we both read iDB

    Didn’t read it all.  To long. I’ll go check my mail instead. C ya

  • Vitica

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….zzzzz

  • Jj

    Fake fake fake. Bet the developer write that

    • appletiser

      i was thinkung the same, the app store has no verification as to who writes a review, could be any one associated with the app for all we know. an the fact that its rated relatively poorly only strengthens that suspicion.

  • feelthepain444

    What the hell were you doing at 2:15AM looking at some appstore reviews..?

    • Kuipo

      LOL!! Good observation

  • Z

    This app sucks. Stop trying to promote it with your referral link

    Great Review, makes me want to download the App and try solving it for myself.

    Gives me the idea to create my own website based strictly on iPhone App reviews.

  • Twited21

    I don’t see what all the fuss is with color as an app for a start it dosent even work just closes everytime it’s opened
    Major pants 

  • Nick

    Restart your phone fool, thats not the apps fault thats your jailbroken iOS’s fault.

  • Xepptizz

    It might be a nice read any other time, but i read reviews to QUICKLY check the general opinion and if it has any recurring issues. If you need an artistic outlet go to forchan or whatever it was called.

  • Mikenick

    OK, so, judging by the comments there are a bunch of people here who are notfamiliar with sarcasm. That review’s very tongue-in-cheek.

    • Quit using fancy talk! (lol)

    • Pirates Suck

      And well written. This site attracts the lowest common denominator. Get used to it.

      Too bad, because Seb and the other writers do good work.

      • Jason Masters

        Quit brownnosing!! your such a fucking asskisser how much shit is in your nostrils? You got sebs balls in your mouth you must be his “official ballwasher” huh? Your a lame ass troll go do us a favor and get back in your trailer with your sister/wife and make more inbreeds and name them teabagger after you lol!!!!

  • nice review but better to add the download links for all which will save time and will be easy to use..

  • woojoo
