    Been a loiterer on here for a while, time to give something back!

    Has anyone seen the site reviewed on techcruch a week or so ago? A new service where you buy app's from fuelmyapp.com and they pay you back once you place a review on itunes.

    Not many apps on there at the moment but one is $14.99! I tried it out on a $0.99 one, once I managed to get my itunes nickname added correctly (a right pain until I got a mail explaining it), they paid me back to paypal within the hour!

    Am hoping they get a tomtom app soon in time for when I get an iphone! Slim chance I'd say..

    That kind of pay per review system is absolute fraud and is against the terms of the SDK. Thanks for the link. I will personally turn each developer in to Apple.

    i dont see why this is fraud?
    check FAQ
    Can we specify only good reviews?

    Absolutely not. We tell all reviewers to fully test the application and base their review on honest and true findings. This makes the reviews on itunes helpful to other App users rather than spammy.

    but the advertising to site is against the rules

    The type of review is irrelevant. When it comes down to it, you are offering money in return for a review. That is against the terms in Apple's SDK.

    Because its unfair.
    I am not going to go sign up for some stupid site, hoping that I will get my money back.

    If someone is serious about wanting reviews, they can give out codes.
