    HI, I have an android app, which has over 10000s reviews, the problem is my user thinks the application is getting bad day by day. and i need to evaluate what most user are commonly thinking about the app.


    Is their any faster way to evaluate the reviews, rather than reading each and single review which makes it a very tedious process!

    any help would be very appreciated! thanks!

    I have moved your question to the Application Development Forum, where other developers will see your question and help you. If you have any question about the move, just PM me.

    It's great to have you here :)

    First of all congratulations for your application sucess. My question is, if you are making some money why don't you hire some one or just talk with a friend to help you out with that?

    There's nothing in the developer console that will allow you to filter out the 1 or 2 star reviews? If you go to your apps Play Store listing, you should be able to sort by most recent which should give you an idea of what's going on with it now.

    @scary alien any ideas?

    You should be able to go to your Developer Console -> Reports -> Reviews -> Select an application and you can download the reviews by month.

    The download files are in .csv format and there are columns with the following information in each:

    Package Name
    App Version Code
    App Version Name
    Reviewer Language
    Device
    Review Submit Date and Time
    Review Submit Millis Since Epoch
    Review Last Update Date and Time
    Review Last Update Millis Since Epoch
    Star Rating
    Review Title
    Review Text
    Developer Reply Date and Time
    Developer Reply Millis Since Epoch
    Developer Reply Text
    Review Link

    Cheers!

    Oh, and I just noticed there's a section at the bottom of that Reports area that says:

    To access your reports programmatically download the gsutil tool. Learn more

    Direct report URIs:

    <developer-specific link to all your .csv files>

    The gsutil tool might be the solution to your issue/question (never used it, though :)).

    Cheers!

    edit: brief description of the gsutil tool:

    gsutil is a Python application that lets you access Google Cloud Storage from the command line. You can use gsutil to do a wide range of bucket and object management tasks, including:
    • Creating and deleting buckets.
    • Uploading, downloading, and deleting objects.
    • Listing buckets and objects.
    • Moving, copying, and renaming objects.
    • Editing object and bucket ACLs.

    ^^^ Yep! It's highlighting the Developer Console where they (Google) made some changes to help you see how the ratings change from day-to-day, week-to-week, or month-to-month.

    I got the feeling from the OP they wanted a way to more easily see the actual comments people were leaving and the monthly download ability should give them that.

    Kudos for continuing to think about this and post back here, EP! :)
