iPhone App Store pulls 1000+ apps in fake 5-star review scandal


The iPhone app developer Molinker has been accused of faking reviews for a number of its 1000+ iPhone apps, and Apple has pulled all of Molinker’s apps–nearly 1% of all iPhone apps–from the App Store, according to PC World.

Brennon Slattery, who wrote the PC World report, speculates that Molinker’s apps aren’t the only ones with bogus 5-star reviews. Slattery urges Apple–and its App Store customers–to be more diligent in exposing fraudulent reviews.
