    I wanted to leave a very positive review, but I can't. The same thing happened to me a few week ago. Can anyone fix this?

    Make sure you are logged into the store. On the computer you'll see your Apple ID in the top right corner. On the iPad you'll see it at the bottom of the page on the left. You also have to have purchased that app to review it.

    Make sure you are trying to review the exact app you purchased. If there is more than one version (lite, HD, pro, etc.) then you can only review the one you actually have.

    If you've checked all that and still can't review, I have no idea.

    Well, you can try restarting the iPad. That helps with the oddest problems from time to time.

    I'm having intermittent trouble posting reviews, too. I hit the Write a Review link and it just scrolls the app page back to the very top, with no review window opening.

    There are a couple of strange things happening in the App Store right now. Just have to wait for Apple to fix them.

    Is it running real slow as well? I'm thinking of stopping the iTunes updates n restarting them when I go to bed!

    I'm not having any slowdown problems, but in another thread it was pointed out that there is a problem with using the More button in the Top Charts tab. You can only push it once. It never finishes cycling so that you can do it again.

    I too had a problem trying to review Friendly for Facebook yesterday. It would not let me view more reviews beyond the first page either. Luckily you guys gave me a good fix for the problem, so no more need to one-star it.

    This must be a common problem, I have had similar problems with iTunes top charts swapping from top 50 to 70 to 80. Separate days. I posted a thread and Tim from Scotland got top 100 when he tried and we both live in same country( itunes uk) I've also tried to leave reviews and they just seem to disappear even though when I go back into it, the review I placed is there but just not on the site. I've stopped reviewing for the last two weeks because it's just a pain to do.

    There is a delay between writing a review and having it appear. Not sure how long it is, but it usually takes a few hours.

    The reviews don't get proofread, do they?

    Anyway, I can't leave reviews either right now. Hitting Leave a review sends me straight back to the top of the page, even after restarting, being logged in and owning the app.

    Twerppoet may be right again, wait for Apple to fix their servers.

    Thought I'd resurrect this thread rather than start a new one. Bought my iPad last week but I can't leave reviews either - I've left several but they never appear.

    When I click back into the app via the app store, even my star rating has disappeared too. Is that normal??
