  • 5 Tips To Help You Spot A Genuine App Review



    Donny from the InsideBB Blog has written up a very useful article for all of you app lovers out there. BlackBerry 10 is coming soon and you are going to want to fill up on apps as soon as you get your new device! But who is to tell what newly submitted apps are good when there are very little reviews to go by? Here are a few tips from Donny to help you figure out which ones aren't authentic:

    1. Consider the Source. Does the app you’re looking to download have only three reviews from users “FredFlintstone”, “WilmaFlintstone”, and “BarneyRubble?” You may want to take those reviews with a grain of salt.
    2. Help the Cause. Make sure you’re signed up for a BlackBerry ID and that you’re writing your own honest and fair reviews. Suggest changes the developer can make in a helpful way.
    3. One of These Things is Not Like the Others. If an app has a ton of stellar reviews, then one one-star review stating the app is terrible, you may be looking at a fake review or simply someone who didn’t understand the app. The same thing goes for many bad reviews and one great one.
    4. Trust, but Verify. If an app is poorly reviewed, take a look at some of the other apps the developer has done as well as their reviews. If the app is a rare miss for the developer, there’s a good chance they’ve developed an improved app to replace it.
    5. Contact the Developer. Almost all of the BlackBerry World developers have a way to contact their support team if you have a question. If you’re concerned about the app’s features or price, connect with the developer before you download the app. A good app developer will look to customer feedback for making their product better rather than just sit back and read negative reviews.

    Let's help each other keep out the fake reviewers. If you suspect there is a problem, you can contact BlackBerry World Support.
