Well it looks like whoever has been doing it (we have our suspicions) has tried to cover their tracks a bit.
We changed iFarkle’s iTunes Application Description to suggest taking any negative iFarkle review that suggested purchasing Three Jacks Software’s “Ten Thousand” with a grain of salt … So now one of two suspicious reviews (the one from codemonkey57 has been edited to no longer mention “Ten Thousand” … The other review (from The Cheesemaker) recommends “Then Thousand” but has upped its rating from one star to two.
Well isn’t that nice of them?
Oh, it is also important to note that it seems like editing an App Store review pops it back up to the top of the list when sorted by Most Recent.
Also, our previous blog post also mentioned that these two reviewers’ only other reviews were rating down another competitor of “Ten Thousand” and rating up both of Three Jacks Software’s own software, thereby adding to the suspicion. Well, now both of those users have reviewed a number of other apps to try and hide that fact, but sorting by Most Recent when looking at a user’s reviews seems to sort based on when the review was originally written and not when it was last edited, so ultimately it doesn’t hide a thing.
Stay tuned to see what their next shyster move might be!
