The great $13 million App Store scam

Cult of Mac Today
Apple makes a big deal about the safety of its App Store.
But as developer Kosta Eleftheriou shows, there are plenty of scams that slip through the cracks.
Take AmpMe, a “free” app that has raked in more than $13 million, thanks largely to hundreds of obviously fake reviews – and multiple promotions on the App Store from Apple itself.
It’s a scandal.

“A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.” – Steve Jobs
