Recently the developer Molinker, creator of over 1,000 apps on the AppStore, has been removed due to them having mostly fake user generated reviews.
iPhoneography reports that one of their users, who goes by SCW, tipped off Apple executive Phil Schiller to the problem. SCW informed Schiller that he had looked at many of the reviews for several Molinker apps and found that many of them were very grammatically similar.
SCW’s letter to Schiller read: “Please investigate for I have just looked at 44 of the reviewers who posted reviews for this Molinker Inc app NightCam Pro & EVERY Review except 2 of the 44+ are ALL FAKE 5 star reviews.“
Schiller’s response was, “Yes, this developer’s apps have been removed from the App Store and their ratings no longer appear either.“
