Sure it can be slow to get them, and it sucks to have dumb 1 star ones, but to resort to having fake 5 star reviews is hardly a solution.
I totally agree. This is one reason why I don't bother with app reviews anymore on iTunes. They're either full of fake shill ones, fake ones by devs promising iTunes vouchers or fake ones such as what this thread suggests

Makes a mockery of it all if its basically give me a 5 star review and ill give you a 5 star review

Another way to get more reviews is to kindly remember your users on writing them. As we added a reminder dialog the users gave us a significant amount of reviews. It's up to you how often you like to remember your users. Fieldrunners for example has a heart shaped button where you get the "Rate Hint".
As mentioned above we remind the players after they solved #n levels. (To get better ratings use good timings and care about the mood the player has)

My two cents

I've just joined toucharcade and have posted an article in the Mac App Store on my new creation Dublin Quiz App (free version). Having read what people have said here regarding reviews and rating, its hard to get a foothold when your just starting out developing.

So much emphasis is placed on reviews its really sink or swim. I think exchanging reviews is a good idea between developers, ONLY if its honest and truthfull! Posting 5 stars does more damage and destroys reputations.

Thanks for reading

Sounds good but if some guy left you a 1 star review and then you have to review his app, i just cant see you leaving a 5 star review.

Again they're fake either way, look at some of the apps mentioned, New York travel Pangea guide ? You'll honestly review this ?

Its like when i read about people trying to win a voucher in a contest where the contest is to do with learning for babies and they dont even have a kid ! Just want to win.

Just think exchanging reviews with each other (which are fake, come on lets be serious) is a bad idea

Not to mention that Apple has began deleting reviews randomly.

Even the reviews I got for Small Chronicles by asking players to help review & improve the game's experience FROM WITHIN THE GAME (via a prompt) were deleted.

Meaning that my legit reviews were deleted.

Not 1 but 4 of them -_-''
