Is jailbreaking killing DropZap 2 with one star reviews in the App Store?

Check out the slaughter:

I have reasons to suspect that jailbreaking is responsible for DropZap 2 v2.1's freeze and subsequent crash on launch reported by some users.

I would appreciate it if you would give DropZap 2 v2.1 a try and let me know whether it launches properly on your device, what the device model is, whether your device is jailbroken (and if so, how) and which iOS version is running on your device.

To preserve privacy, you might wish to send me a message instead of replying here -- especially in the case of jailbroken devices.

Link doesn't work, and can't find it in the app store. I would download it to try and see, but I can't. Sorry dude.

Works fine on a iPad 2. But how can you review an app if you never bought it? Jail broken or not I believe they bought your app if they left a review. So maybe work on a fix?

You can buy apps even if you're jailbroken...Not all of us jailbreakers download cracked apps.

To be honest the OP was worded confusing. I too thought he meant were jailbreaking pirates rating his app poorly until I re-read it a few times to understand it.

I think the question he meant to ask is:

If you have a jailbroken device does DropZap 2 work?

Are the crash reports showing up in iTunes Connect? Are you sure it's jailbreaking thats causing the issue?

I would check this out before blaming it on Jailbreaking. Unless of course you can replicate the issue on a jailbroken device, which would make fixing it even easier (i.e. JB your device to test n fix the issue).

Anyone encountering freezes/crashes on launch willing to try out ad hoc build variations of DropZap 2 to help me identify the problem?

I've been playing it on my iPhone 4 without incident so far. I'm not jailbroken.
