    One thing that Android does MUCH better than Apple

    I love my ipads but i hate the iTunes store. Any developer can take you for a run by putting out a crap app. In the android market you have 24 hours to return a crap app for a full refund (first time only) whereas here you get screwed.

    I bought the iBearMoney iPad app for ten bucks based on the awesome reviews for the iPhone and the so far good reviews for the iPad.

    Well it does nothing but crash.

    Another example...UNO for the iPad....you can't even play the game because oftentimes it Will not let you select the card (a known bug) ....no updates since day one when i bought it, the developer doesn't return emails, and the game is unplayable.

    And what is the recourse? Nothing. The developer doesn't have to fix the UNO game because they already have your money and there is no recourse for a bug filled app.

    If you make returns allowed for the first 24 hours, then if the developers want to not only get but keep your money, they have to build q quality app.

    I agree completely. One thing I noticed is that an app can have great reviews with a 4 star rating and I still may not like it or find that it doesn't suit my purposes. I recently purchased Iron Man 2 for $9.99 and beat it with about 3 hours of casual game play. What a rip off. Also, I've been looking for a good to-do app. I've had to purchase a handful of them to try them out and most are crap. What a waste.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    Crap Apps

    The best way to stop crap apps is with reviews. Give them bad one. I respect reviews and seldom buy an app with even one or two bad reviews. It's like feedback on eBay.

    Interesting. I don't buy or download many apps. But I agree with everything said above. Good thread.

    It's sounds like you're not aware, but you can return apps from the AppStore as well.

    Don't see it anywhere in the TnC's except in the case of non-delivery, which is not what we're talking about.

    I know some people have gotten them in extreme cases, but I beg to differ with your confident proclamation.

    I saw some sites that sell feedback for your app too. So some guys can get lots of 5 star feedback really quick.

    So if an app has 40,000 reviews and 1,000 bad ones and the rest 5 star, you don't buy it?

    Also, it's not just crap apps. Perhaps you think an app does something but it doesn't. Perhaps you want to try a game but start it up and realize you just aren't a fan of the controls. 40 people could have given it a 5 star review but it just might not be your cup of tea.

    I think this sort of thing drives more people to pirate ipa files. Why buy PvZ for 10 bucks only to find it's not your cup of tea when you can try it for free first?
