  How to scam $200,000 per month and get 67,882 all 5 Star reviews on the app store

How to scam $200,000 per month and get 67,882 all 5 Star reviews on the app store

6,771 points•348 comments•submitted 5 days ago * by busymom0 to r/apple
I often go researching apps on the app store to see what's trending, inspiration for app ideas, look at nice UI designs etc. This morning I came across this app which is currently ranked #26 in their category and had over 67,882 all 5 star reviews. Yes, you read that right, all 5 star reviews despite only being available since September 15, 2017.

As soon as I read the name and rating, my bullshit meter went ding dong and I got extremely curious on how they have acheived such high ranking? Let's dig a bit.

The name is "One Night Stand - Adult Hook up Tonight" - if Ashley Maddison's "Have an affair" was too bold for you, this isn't that bad. Who doesn't want to have instant sex at a moment's notice with a complete stranger right? But any how, I digress. Let's move on to the app icon. Sure beauty is subjective but I would expect such a top rated dating app to have a bit better looking icon.

Let's look at the promotional text: "Looking for someone who wanna find a dating with top hot singles and love adventures. Find the real dates online. Help you hook up with the one you interested in."

I am an immigrant and English isn't my first language. But I am pretty sure there's a ton of grammatical errors in this. App claims "real dates". ROFL. "Top hot singles" & "love adventures". LMFAO.

Let's read the description. I am going to trim this down a bit because I can only handle bullshit to a limit.

"If you are a good talker, maybe you can hookup with someone on a beautiful night. Drag your photos & fill in your profile, with a click of mouse, you can check the one you like and chat with him/her directly. Start a chat freely since it’s your time to show and you may meet the one you like and hookup now."

Click of a mouse eh. I didn't know Apple replaced the headphone jack with a fucking mouse.

"Get ready to a new dating with someone you like, enjoy chatting with him/her or dive into the world of passion and desire. All you need is our app One Night Stand. Search One Night Stand in iTunes now and be ready for a new life here. meet your fate one Still shame to share your expression with others? Wanna make yourself more attractive? Eager to meet someone you like and wanna hookup with him/her directly. One Night Stand is your best choice. With all benefits above, you can enjoy more while you wanna hookup with someone. Find the real one online, meet the one you like nearby & One Night Stand will help you hook up with the one you interested in. Now, download it, and then meet the one you love!"

MAN, I AM SOOOO GETTING LAID TONIGHTTTT!!! Just gotta buy this 1 Week at 19.99 USD in app purchase and I will make all kinds of "love adventures" with the "top hot singles". Or maybe I will go for the 3 months at 69.99 USD. 69 nomsayin Wink

"As our app enables the display of users' locations on a map, to help you find users nearby you, and before display your information, we would request for your permission, you have right to reject it and don’t use the feature, if you turn on the location sharing, then keep an eye on unfriendly person and fake information."

I am no rocket scientist but I am sure this app is the definition of "fake information".

Let's move on to the reviews. I don't like the iOS 11 app store review system, so I use Appannie to look at all the reviews.

The app has received a total of 68,066 reviews since inception. I sorted them to show "5 star only". I am a developer myself and my mind was absolutely blown with 67,882 all 5 star reviews. Man, even Apollo for Reddit has only received a total of 3800 reviews with only 3100 5 star reviews. So this dating app must be exceptionally good. /s

Let's look at the name of the last few reviewers: Maria84, 7Linda, 84Peter, Howard35, 61Nicola, Boyle33, Geoffrey93, Jones24, 66Celeste, Maggie42, Doyle19, 46Letitia, 18Michelle.

Anyone notice a pattern in these names? It's like someone left a phone directory inside a for loop.

Let's read a few of them:

Thank you for trying your best to make one night stand a safe, fun app.Stay happy, developers! - Betsy Scripps63

Thank you for trying your best to make one night stand a safe, fun app.Stay happy, developers! - Gerald Watt

As soon as I sign up, I swipe to the cute girl. Got match. Now we planned to meet up and have dinner with. I recommended this app for all singles. - 37Gwendolyn Jackson

No, I didn't make a typo pasting the same review twice. That's the same exact text, down to the typos reviewed by hundreds of different people within a few minutes. There's hundreds of reviews which start with the exact same first few lowercase characters, then a random word in upper case. There's another pattern of pasting some other popular app's name in the review - probably for ASO (App store optimization) purposes to get better ranking in the store. Some reviewers claim to get 9 month long relationships from a 3 month old "one night stand" app.

Now, sure, there are real reviews too which are all 1 star reviews warning everyone else about the scam but 3000 1 star real reviews easily get overpowered by 67000 5 star fake ones.

Let's look at the screenshots. App uses pictures of attractive women as you would expect from most dating apps. However let's dig a bit deeper. I downloaded the screenshots and did a reverse google search with them. These pictures are straight up stolen from someone's instagram profile and other chive articles with titles "Sometimes you gotta let them breathe" with pictures of women with big tits.

Next let's estimate the downloads and revenue for this app. For this, we go use SensorTower. For November, it estimates 70,000 downloads and $200,000 revenue. Now I know that sensor tower estimations aren't that accurate but for an app which is #26 in the store, I won't be surprised if this number were actually close enough. Considering this app has been available since September 15th and Christmas is when apps get the most revenue, I won't be surprised if they had scammed half a million by taking advantage of gullible people.

EDIT:

More about accuracy of Sensor Tower estimates as explained by /u/drysart here: https://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/...h=51109789

and by a Sensor Tower employee /u/dizietzz here:

https://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/...h=bca18e9a

I downloaded the app to test it and no surprises, was bombarded with a ton of fake messages from obviously fake "milfs". But unfortunately, I couldn't read most of the messages as I couldn't afford to buy a $69 in app purchase. App was also filled with obvious typos, misspellings like "Reciving info" etc. Didn't bother wasting too much time on the app.

If anyone is interested, here are 2 copies of this app. I am not sure if they are different apps or the same because my browser shows them with the same icon but slightly different names. Be careful if you download this, it will bombard you with popups asking you to subscribe to the in app purchase. Keep your finger OFF of the home button unless you want to accidentally buy the $69 IAP and hook up with some hot singles!

Video recording: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bw9xzek2xeuq2z...M.mp4?dl=0

I am also working on a way to download all reviews in bulk so I can recognize more similar patterns in the fake reviews. EDIT: Check out a google docs data dump of all the reviews here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...sp=sharing

Can we all please discuss how such scam gets around the app review team when us developers often have to go through such a strict app review on our legitimate apps? Can we also please discuss the completely broken rating system and how such app has been available on the store for over 3 months despite being reported countless times and despite getting thousands of fake 5 star reviews?

There were a few other posts couple months ago about apps claiming to be antivirus software but were just scam. This proves disparity in the app review system for legitimate apps vs such scam apps.

Proposed solutions:

Have some trigger which auto flags any app which is climbing up the rankings or getting too many reviews too fast and then have some human manually verify it?
Flag reviews which have the same text.
If an app has a subscription model OR very expensive pricing, pay extra attention while reviewing the app.
Pay attention when reviewing apps and shit like “click of a mouse”, “Drag photos”, “Play store” should be easy to identify scams. When I submit my apps, they go through extreme scrutiny and often get rejected for silly stuff (example: Restore button not available for IAP - even though it actually is, App was rated 9+ and should be higher even though I rated the app 17+). So I wonder how these ones get through.
Why is reporting an app so hard on iOS? I can’t find a report button anywhere on the app page. Ended up using the support website to report it.
iOS 11 App store has no way to sort/filter reviews. So if you look at this app, it ONLY shows you the 5 star ratings ONLY. Completely hides the 1 star reviews which deceives the consumer. The app store should have a filter for sorting by time/rating, filtering by number of stars, should let you see other reviews from the same user etc.
EDIT: Check out a google docs data dump of all the reviews here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...sp=sharing

EDIT: Few people are asking me why I went through such extent to expose this? I did network security in school, so this is up my alley. Plus, I am a developer and make my living off of the app store, so this kind of stuff personally impacts me. Maybe I am jealous that a shady app is taking a spot in the top rankings which could be taken by real apps and also reducing the trust of regular people in the app store and making them skeptical about legitimate apps and in app purchases too. So when they would come across one of my legitimate apps with legitimate 5 star reviews, they would be skeptical. This stuff erodes the trust in a marketplace and should be exposed. Is it bad then that I am frustrated and outraged? You tell me.

EDIT: Just woke up to somehow getting banned from posting in iosprogramming subreddit without a reason. Can a moderator please explain why I was banned? EDIT Got banned probably because one of the mods saw the title and thought it was just some spam. Contacted mods and now I am unbanned there Smile

  Good app reviews can help boost app downloads
Posted by: Mangosix - 01-03-2018, 08:03 AM - Forum: Reviews - No Replies

The importance of positive app reviews:

  • High quality app reviews can help increase app downloads. Most people like to download the app with many 5 star app reviews. When they see one app have many positive reviews, they think this is a good app to use.

  • Most apps with much more positive reviews are featured on App Store. App Store will recommend the app that is praised by users.

  • The volume of reviews you receive has the biggest impact (apart from downloads) on your rankings in the top charts and search results.

  • App reviews also can help developers know the advantages of their app, to make their app better.

After we know the importance of app reviews, let me introduce some methods about how to get more positive reviews.

1. Make sure you create a great app
You need to create a great app that provides value to its users. If your app does not function well in the first place, you cannot expect many users or positive reviews. The happier the users are, the more positive reviews will come in. Make sure you update your app regularly to keep it relevant and functional.

2. Ask help from your friends and families
One of the fundamental aspects of getting more app reviews is asking. Consider implementing the aforementioned tips and try to find the best opportunities to get reviews so you can increase your downloads and app exposure. Ask your friends and families help to write positive reviews and high ratings for your app. Ask if it is possible, ask your friends promote your app to their friends, and to their friends' friends...

3. Incentivize your users
When your app users are asked to leave a review make sure you provide them a “what’s in it for me” incentive before asking for their feedback. Brainstorm some ideas that would be beneficial to your app users and implement them into the review process so that user reviews are a win-win for everyone. Offering a bonus level for game apps is one example of an incentive that can be translated into apps of other types as well.

4. Exchange reviews in related platforms
There are many platforms can provide this kind of service. You can put the link of your app to ask others download your app. And you should download their apps to write reviews for it.

5. Buy high quality app reviews
This is the most effective and quickest way to get more positive reviews and high ratings. I recommend you Reviewapp4u. They have helped many app developers. All the reviews are from real phone users, not fake reviews from bot. So it is very worth to do it.

  How to choose a reliable app reviews provider
Posted by: Mangosix - 12-28-2017, 09:29 AM - Forum: Downloads - No Replies

When people want to download an app, they will look at app reviews give by other people, and judge the quality of the app according app reviews, so the App reviews play an important role as well and need to be focused on equally. After getting a deep understanding as to what exactly is the importance of the app reviews and how to get them, the next and one of the most important things is to know how to choose app review service provider according to your budget and requirements.


There are many app review service providers nowadays, it is difficult to find which one is the best one for you. Here I list some of the most important factors that are necessary to keep in mind when it comes to investing in an app service provider.

1. Real app reviews from real users
This should definitely be the key factor when you are choosing an app review service provider because fake reviews will cause a very serious consequence to your app when the fake reviews were found by Apple. Maybe they will removed your app. It is thus necessary to make sure that the reviews are from real users and not from the fake users. There are a number of service providers which might claim to provide you with thousands and millions of app reviews, but the thing that you need to check is if they are even real and from people in real life?

Before paying the companies, make sure to ask them about thoroughly about all the possible users’ reviews that they are going to provide. It has been found a lot of times that these providers tend to give out the reviews from the fake users who are something that ends up not being important for the app reviews because the real time app downloader and users tend not to believe in those fake accounts. Thus everything ends up being useless and not worth the money.


2. Prices
One of the most important things that need to be understood is just as high prices don’t necessarily mean the best service; low prices don’t mean the services are going to be bad. There are a lot of app review service providers who charge a lot less in comparison to the popular ones but are proven to have been one of the best in the market. There might be a lot of reasons as to why the prices are low, but that definitely doesn’t imply that their services are not up to the mark.

3. Refund policies are a good way of judgment

Good service providers are not just after your money but are after making the best platform for your app. They are the ones who would mention a proper refund policy just in case their services are not something that you are pleased with. Proper and strategized refund policies are something that reflects the good will of the company and also the genuineness when it comes to the service that they would provide. Having the assurance of a refund policy is something that is good to know because that way you won’t have to lose all the money that you have invested in if the services are not satisfactory.


In conclusion
Looking for the best app review service providers is very important, I recommend you to buy app reviews from Bestreviewapp which can guarantee the three points above, and they also have many successful cases.
