When you delete an app on the iPad, you are asked to give it a rating. Isn't that a bit odd? If you delete something, you're much more likely than usual to give it a bad rating. We might say "it's still fair because every app gets the same treatment, so it won't skew your app ratings in relation to other apps", but some observations: - Does it disfavor iPad apps? I didn't see such a request on my iPhone/ iOS4 when I deleted something... - Does it disfavor apps which are good but simply not for everyone, or for every use case? Perhaps I download something then realize, I wanted it to do something else, but the app is still cool in its own right. - Does it disfavor free apps, because people are more likely to give those a quick try then quickly delete them again? To make it more fair, perhaps Apple should: - also ask people to give a game a rating if the person has been found playing the game a lot. This might give more 5 star ratings. - add the choice for the user who deleted something to choose "just wasn't for me" instead of giving a bad rating - simply remove this rating-upon-deletion dialog? Then people who didn't like an app would be required to go through the same obstacle -- looking for the app store review page -- as people who did like it. Would love to hear your feedback!
