    Any particular reason you come to this conclusion? (and is that actually the name of the app? doesn't show up in the app store for me).

    He's probably referring to the "Advance Cinema" app. Those reviews that seem honest rate the app very poorly, but the developer seems to be "paying" people with free movies to give the app five stars, and according to at least one comment requires it to gain access at all.

     

    Regards.

    I concur with varjak paw - not only because varjak paw is always right - but because I have seen others complaining about the Advance Cinema App more than a few times around here and I also think that is the app in question.

     

    Why Apple allows it to remain in the app store, I really don't know.

    Ah, would that were true!

    I don't know either, but I've emailed a contact I have (if my contact is still valid) to bring it up. Perhaps that will get it looked at. It certainly would seem to be to be a violation of Apple's terms if the developer is indeed "paying" for good reviews.
