As the SDK for iPhone OS 4.0 continues to reveal more interesting information about upcoming features, it has been confirmed that Apple will be removing the ‘rate-on-delete’ feature for their apps within OS 4.0.
Previously, iPhones owners were greeted with a pop up menu, advising owners to rate an app before they removed it from their iPhone. Owners had the option of choosing between 1 and 5 stars, but Apple has now removed this feature within their OS.
This is due to concerns from developers that previous ratings did not give applications a fair review that they deserved, as Apple has no such feature in place for owners who actually like the app – but rather only when they decided to delete.
What are your thoughts on the removal? Perhaps Apple are planning to introduce a revamped application approval system for their apps, which would explain Apple’s decision to remove this.
