A 5 Star Thank You
The original 1 star reviewer has now contacted me and has said he will change the review as he thought this was the way to leave feedback. I’m just grateful he got in touch and this allows me to work with him to find out what the issue is regards WhoNews and his iPod Touch.
Once again thanks for the continued support it means a lot to an indie developer.
Did you leave a 1 star review?
This morning I read at the App Store a 1 star review from a user saying v2.06 now crashed on his iPod Touch. For any developer a 1 star review is really disappointing after all the hours of hard work especially when you haven’t been given the opportunity to put things right.
So if you are a WhoNews user and you’ve found a problem then please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org first and then write a review when you’ve seen how I respond.
