I have tested many apps and I would like to review them in the Apple Store. I use an iPad.

I don't want to review apps under the account my credit card is tied to.

How can I review apps anonymously?

That's not how the reviews work. Maybe make a blog? – bmike Sep 30 '12 at 19:28
The two main reasons for anonymous reviews are: to improve the reviews of my own app, or to sabotage the reviews of my competition. Apple has not yet figured out how to allow anonymous reviews without allowing these. – GEdgar Sep 30 '12 at 19:46
@GEdgar my main reason for anonymity is to keep me save from attacks if I leave very critical feedback to totally junk apps and privacy. I wish Apple does not reveal my email and identity if they reveal my reviews. Well I don't care less actually but some way it would be cool to have anonymous feedback. – hhh Sep 30 '12 at 20:37
I don't see why this question has garnered so many downvotes - it's a legitimate request, without an obvious answer. Presuming that the information is being sought for malicious purposes isn't a terribly-valid reason to downvote. – Dan J Oct 4 '12 at 16:23
Apple does not "reveal [your] email" when they publish reviews. They do publish your Apple ID username, but I believe this can be overridden if you review using iTunes on Mac/PC instead of doing so from your phone. – tubedogg Feb 15 '15 at 7:40

You cannot review anonymously but Apple offers feedback through this form here.
