    After playing around in the market for a little while looking for new and exciting apps, all I have to say is wow! Certainly not saying that it would include anyone from the forum, just putting it out there anyway. I can't even count how many apps had low ratings from people that obviously just didn't read what the app was, or how to properly use the app, and therefore decided to give it one star. The Android developers do a great job providing us with apps (and a ton for free to boot) that expand the functionality of our phones. Before you decide to give an app a low rating make sure its lack of functionality wasn't user error (launching a font pack won't get you anywhere), and give the developer a chance too. If you have a problem with an app try e-mailing the developer with the issue, I've found that most of them will be grateful if you alert them to issues with their app and will work hard to resolve them quickly. In conclusion, don't give an app an automatic one star without further evaluation, this will help encourage the developers to continue their hard work for our benefit.

    Go look at toggle widgets. Multiple people complaining that it doesn't work and giving 1 star. Some people need to learn how to use the phone. A widget app cannot be opened, only placed on a homescreen.

    I try to avoid giving low ratings in general, when I do it's mostly for apps that seemed malicious, were spam or that have a false description.

    Kudo's to ALL the Dev's working hard to make the Android platform a success.
    Remember, if we don't support them, they will find a platform that does.
    ;)

    Great post OP...

    Happy Trails

    I saw an example of this on for the Headset Toggle Widget (which works great BTW) A couple of people said it didn't download after numerous tries & a couple more it wouldn't open.

    Thing is, most people pick up a smart phone, expecting results similar to a dumb phone; everything in the application store is meant for your phone in particular, and every single thing you download works the same way.


    Fact is, if you want everything really, REALLY simple, and with big buttons that are labeled 'START', and can only run by itself with no other applications, then you might need a phone that's made by someone that rhymes with snapple.
