strange ratings on appstore
I have just noticed something strange happening on the Star ratings of the appstore, and I would like to know if anybody else experienced something similar.
I was checking all the ratings around the world today, when I came across Russia, where we have received 17 ratings for our full version application, then I asked myself, 17 ratings? This is strange I donīt think we sold any copy in Russia actually. So I checked and in fact we sold only 1 copy there.
Now the first thing that came to my mind was, Russia = lot of pirate versions and by thinking that I came to the conclusion that possibly people with pirate version can actually vote on appstore! Does anybody can confirm this? If this is possible it would be very unprofessional from apple and could lead to more false ratings then we can already see.
