PSA: Don't update to iOS 12.4 if you use apps in AB output slot or IAA apps that use the mic.
https://forum.audiob.us/discussion/34030/urgent-psa-hold-off-updating-to-ios-12-4-if-you-use-apps-in-output-slot-in-audiobus

Do developers get notified whenever a review is updated?

.. or only when the first review is submitted ?

Comments

    "Consider promptly replying to new and updated reviews following a major release of your app so that you can have a dialogue with users when they’re most interested in sharing feedback. You can set up email alerts in the Users and Roles section of App Store Connect to notify you when a user edits a review to which you’ve previously replied."

  • Thanks @AudioGus that was really helpful👍

    By default developers don’t get notifications at all. In fact, this is the first time I even hear it’s possible to get notifications... must be new to iOS12?

    I’ve never received a single notification about a review.

  • Never got a notification ... App Store Connect App is my favourite way to check rating and reviews :)

    I always used App Annie, as they at least aggregate all 4 million app store regions into a single list...

    I've to check that out!

  • Yah I always heard without using a service that it was a bit of a pain checking all the regions.

    So when developers respond to a review it’s simply because they usually just sporadically check them every so often ?

    Can’t speak for everyone, but in my case yes, indeed. In fact, I seem to remember that the reviews were never meant to be a communication channel with the dev in the first place. They are for sharing opinions with other potential buyers.

    There’s always contact information provided on the same page, which is how you’re supposed to contact a developer most effectively.

    Thanks. I get the contact info section but I’m sure developers are partial to a few five star fan reviews rather than direct comms :)

    The App Store versión of instagram likes ha ;)

  • OT.... But If you have an opinion on an app I feel like it's important to at least drop the stars even if a written opinion isn't something you wanna do.. Just cuz everyone looks at that pre purchase.. But I hate when people that don't know how to use an app run their mouths and get hateful just cuz they are frustrated they suck at using the app 😁

    I would say there’s a large percentage of people that do that. It’s lazy and damaging

    Another riddle of the App Store is, that even as reviews should be deleted after a new version came out, I again and again see Apps with reviews from 5, 6 or 7 years ago.
