Contest: Spot the Best App World Dating Scene “Reviews” – 10 Copies of Fixmo Tools to Win!


In case you have been living under a rock you probably have noticed that the BlackBerry App World reviews system has devolved into AOL of the 1990s. It reminds me of the day when A/S/L ruled the chat rooms. A huge portion of the “reviews” for many apps in App World have devolved into something along these lines:

funny and sad Cnectd review

That “review” was taken from Cnectd and they seem to mostly be congregated on social networking and chatting apps but no category is truly spared. From what I can tell other app stores are subjected to the same “reviews” as App World but I really wish RIM would do something to help stem the problem. RIM does not allow developers to flag reviews nor do they allow users to flag reviews as offensive or irrelevant. At the very least maybe RIM needs to create an “Dating Scene” app for these reviews and keep it out of the valid reviews section. I know that RIM is aware of the issue (they also don’t live underneath a rock) so we decided to have a little fun at their expense to highlight the issue.

The developers at Fixmo have kindly offered up 10 copies of the recently updated and awesome Fixmo Tools app for our contest. In case you don’t know Fixmo Tools is a suite of apps likened to a “utility belt for your smartphone.” It includes 17 different apps in one larger app ranging from Wi-Fi file transfers to screenshots.

For your chance to win a copy of Fixmo Tools all you have to do is leave a comment with:

  • A link to the best App World dating scene “review” page you can find from the App World website
  • The text of the review you think should win with all personally identifying information cut out or excluded like PIN’s, usernames, etc

Submissions must be made before Friday April 1st, 2011 at 11:59 PM EDT and we will select the winners over the weekend. This is a totally subjective contest and we are counting on you to make us laugh and cry at the same time. The more absurd the better though we are definitely discouraging anyone from contributing to the problem by leaving your own “review” to win. Credit will be given for “thinking outside the box” and finding “reviews” in the most unexpected places. Multiple submissions will be accepted within reason but only one will be counted per user for the prize.

Good luck to you all and most important of all, have some fun!

  1. I remember testing Fixmo when it only had like 5 things. Lol. Awesome app. Had it awhile but lost it somehow when changing devices a few times.

  2. Well now THIS should certainly drive people to App World looking for winners! Great viral marketing for RIM there Ronen! Surely many folks prowling App World for winners will also drive some downloads too! 😉

  3. Hahaha! Excellent idea for a contest. The App World “reviews” are totally ridiculous.
