Ratings graph added to App Store

Sorry if there is a thread about this already, but my searches didn't find it.

Now not only do you get ratings by version, but you get a bar graph of how many ratings are of each score. What does everyone think? Personally, I like it.

I like it. It's a lot like Amazon. And this should be in the lounge section

It is interesting to see how most apps get very split reviews. The fewest categories of the apps I checked out are the 2 and 3 star sections. I guess most apps are either a love or hate buy.

I can picture it already. Zen Bound with 500 5 star reviews, and 50 1 star reviews.

Personally, I'm glad apple is doing this. I'm not sure though if the rating when you delete an app will count toward it.

Yes, it is interesting. I was looking at quite a few games and noticing the split.

I'm glad Apple added the graph. About time, and it really is like Amazon's.
