Apple pulls 1% of App Store listings over ratings scamThis article contains unofficial information.
In a written response, Schiller says, "Yes, this developer's apps have been pulled from the App Store and their ratings no longer appear either." Considering that Molinker had 1,011 apps that were removed, that is about 1% of the total number available at last count. Subtracting apps instead of seeing them multiply like rabbits is a new situation for Apple. And even though the bad actor involved was nabbed copying apps and placing bogus 5-star reviews on them, he feigns innocence. AppFreak managed to get in touch with Molinker about the removal of his listings and his response was, "We got email from Apple yesterday (Sunday, 6th) which told us our contract is changed to pending status. Actually, we do not know what's wrong so far. We had contacted Apple for such sudden changes, hope we can get quick response and actions from Apple." The bottom line? Don't rely on the reviews when determining which Apps to download.
