    Our apps get updated all the time - but often don't include the changes we want! Really silly, but frustrating. Eg I just loaded the free app "trickster" for movie reviews and showtimes and it's great. But there is no "wish list" that I can find, so you can note the movies you want to see! Seems obvious to me... But how do we tell them that?

    I usually to the App Store - find the app I want to make a suggestion about - click on the link to the Developer's web site and leave a message there. Some app developers are very responsive indeed. I've had them email me to clarify exactly what I was after. I quite often see that sort of thing mentioned in the app reviews - always a good sign.

    Most developers have stat tracking software setup that allows us to look at all reviews on iTunes (and translate the review to English for us). We use reviews as a primary way of figuring out what to address in future versions of our app.

    I would create a new thread or have one of the moderators move this as a new topic into the appropriate forum. You're posting in a thread that is specific to providing feedback to app developers.

    This is so true. And don't forget that you can always mail the developer. There's always a mail provided on the developer website or in the description page so why not just use it and have a nice discussion? You would certainly learn the reason why something is missing which is often quite obvious but has not been realized by people.
