We built a water app called "Absorb Water" for people that hate the taste of water. We calculate the water content from 12 different sources. So we promoted the app correctly had it reviewed by many sites, press releases etc. Noticed quickly that a company with an app for athlete's water consumption (the exact opposite of our target market) would always add in the comment section of the review sites or iTunes, how our app was made by people that make puzzles and that their app was made by doctors. They went on talking about how great their app was and how bad our app compared to theirs. We received 1 star reviews from this group as well with the exact same comments on itunes! These people have elephant balls! I have promoted my product shamefully as well (guilty), but find it repulsive when people bash other products simply because they are considered competition. If you are going to bash someone try to do it a little more secretive and don't leave elephant droppings all over the place. After a threat they did clean up some of the nasty comments. A lot of the review sites actually got pissed off and removed the comment or removed the review altogether. Wondering if anyone has had similar encounters?
