App Store Reviews are the life blood of the indie app developer. They help others choose apps that are right for them, help separate the wheat from the chaff (and there is a lot of chaff out there), and they act as an independent, crowd sourced, marker of quality.
App developers are an emotional bunch however. Positive reviews send us on a high, encouraging us to add new features and build new apps. But negative reviews send the roller coaster over the edge, plummeting us to the depths of self-doubt where we question the very nature of our existence and the time & effort we have put into moulding our app’s every bit and byte.
I am please to say that #CashWise has received mostly positive reviews on the App Store, and so I thought I’d share a few with you. Recently srhottie gave #CashWise 4 stars, said it was “Wonderful” and wrote that it is “A great app, straight to the point and can be customised as well which is a great bonus, the only thing missing is a total in the front screen or being able to add totals for all accounts into one IF required, but most definitely a great app and I am not easy to impress , keep it up !!!“.
Reviews with suggestions are great, a boost to my ego and another line for my to-do list. Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t provide any way for developers to have a proper conversation with customers. Sure we can now respond to app store reviews, but we still can’t have a proper conversation. So while all reviews are read, suggestions noted and questions answered, problems can potentially go unsolved. If you have a question, a problem, or would like to discuss a suggestion then please get in touch, either through the app itself or via the help page.
Other reviews show that srhottie is not alone with their liking of #CashWise. Baloeran55 gave it five stars and wrote that #CashWise is “Simple and good … works as described, great app“, and @top wrote that it is “Convenient and fast. Very easy when you want to keep track of your expenses“. Mr Beni finds it useful, “It’s nothing complicated. It just helps to keep track of multiple accounts. It works for me“. Plut64216 says #CashWise is a “Most convenient app” and it is “very easy to look after your money“, and Juddings says, “These kind of apps are what makes apple mobile device worth buying“.
I’d like to thank all these people, and indeed everyone who has taken a moment out of their busy day to leave feedback, good or bad, that others can use to make their mind up.
Feedback and independently honest reviews are critical to indie app developers like myself, please keep them coming :—)
