    Hi all, I recently have discovered that I cannot write reviews to apps I own in the app store. I touch the write a review link and the page refreshes and does not give me the text window to write the review. It worked fine up until not long ago but its no longer working now. Is anyone else having this problem and found a solution? I own an ipad2.

    There have been some issues reported by Members recently. Maybe they're getting the site ready for next week's announcements on October 4th.

    I have always had this problem.:( Of course I only have a few, very few apps. But a few times I went to post a review and there just was no way to do it. No options.

    I too had had problems, have been able to write the review but then there is no option to post or if there is it doesn't post. When I go back to the app the review I wrote is still just sitting there.

    Same, I don't get it. I've written some nice, wasted reviews.

    Glad it's not just me. Thanks for the responses I'm just going to have to wait until they fix the problem. I assume the app developers won't be to happy about this. Especially the developers of the good apps :).

    Same here. I must say I am deeply disappointed with my first Apple device. So many things are either not working, not possible or just really complicated. Coming from Android this is a huge step back into the stoneage. I was hoping to JB today, but then I saw it's not possible with 4.3.5 . Cheers, Freshman

    I'm wondering if the upcoming OS upgrade will fix this problem. Sure hope so.

    I bought an ipad2 2weeks ago that had IOS4.3.5 on it, and have not been able to post reviews
    I press "write a review" link on all the apps I have bought and it brings up the same page again

    I have a old iPod touch a doing same on that does bring up the write a review page
    However the one time I tried it and the review has not appeared - yet
    I can also get to the review page using my Win7 PC

    I too was hoping that IOS5 would resolve this issue but no it has not

    Doing that has good no effect on my ipad2
    It even results in the "write a review" link disappearing completely!

    App Reviews page in App Store does seem flakey of late. I find that when I write a review and try to submit it, I get a message that I can't write a review for an app that I have not bought, yet I am on the app page which shows clearly that the app has been installed! Weird!
