Rate Me? Sure

You know those iOS apps that nag you with a pop-up screen and asks your review? Usually the text in pop-up goes something like this, “If you like this app, please rate it”. (This actually doesn’t seem very democratic since the sentence actually only encourages those who like the app to review it, thus giving positive review.)

Quite frankly, I think iOS has a problem. This is super annoying. The popups appear again and again even if I rate the app or click “don’t bother me again”, or equivalent. Apparently it seems that the app doesn’t track what the user does (or doesn’t care), the popup will come again and again.

I actually do what John Gruber suggests. 1 star for every app that annoys me with the request, and a short explanation.
