Well thats the thing, this is their way to get round that. Previously you could write a review if you got a promo code, now you cant. So now its 'download our free app and write a review in order to try and win $1 gift voucher...' kinda thing.
You see here sometimes, though very rare, someone leaving a 2/5 stars review. But 'amazingly' they never win the competition ! Too many people here leave glowing 5 star reviews for crappy apps. Then months later moan when they see fake reviews for games !
This is one major reason i dont bother with iTunes reviews is because so many are fake or from 'competitions' like this
I mean many people here dont have kids but still give apps 5 stars for some baby app because they want to win $5 or $10, its embarassing.
I wish these 'leave our app a 5 star review to try and win $5...' competitions wouldnt exist. As its just making the reviews on iTunes worse.
