    Hi

    Weird and frustrating problem, I went into the iTunes App store this morning to well browse and maybe buy some apps.

    The problem is that iTunes is failing to show ANY of the Ratings (1-5 stars)
    Or the reviews/Comments people have made on ANY of the apps.
    (Note: it doesn't say that their aren't any, it just looks like that feature never existed)

    I even checked on apps that I know.
    FOr example Cyan Worlds "Stoneship"
    I didn't buy Stoneship because of the customer comments/reviews

    Strangely enough I can see them on my iPod Touch, but I like using the App Store on my mac, it's faster overall.

    So... is this problem just on my end? If so how do I make it stop?

    I tried Closing and reopening the App store, as well as quitting and reopening iTunes.
    I haven't tried restarting my computer, if only because I don't think it would help. (But if I'm wrong go ahead and yell at me)

    As if iTunes wasn't friendly enough as it was...
    (Would it kill apple to include sub-categories?
    Music > Musical Instruments
    Music > Internet Radio
    Music > Players
    etc...)

    Its not you...

    Nope not just you I was wondering about this. I even checked over at Gizmodo, Engadget et al to see if they were covering it. Nada. TUAW doesnt seem to have it eiher. So far I cant find an explanation. Though I don't believe this an error.

    Thank you for letting me know.
    At least I can stop thinking about how my iTunes could have been messed up.

    However I hope this isn't a permanent thing.
    I can understand why Apple removed the Rate this App when deleting it from your iPod
    (Never did know how you could expect accurate ratings from that system)
    But the user Reviews/Comments can be quite informative

    I concur

    I was searching Google for just this issue - the ratings and reviews are just gone *poof* from the iTunes App store. The ratings and reviews exist in music, but not in the app store. Like you said, it's as if they never existed, there isn't a placeholder for them.

    Bummed! I based my buying decision partly on the comments, I guess I'll just wait now.
