This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to figure out what's going on with Apple's ratings/reviews system on the App Store. I've had issues with my own app (ratings/reviews not showing) now I see a major app with similar issues...
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011 free app was released just 2 days ago (Feb 14). It now has 29 ratings and 9 reviews (one review is mine posted from night of 2/15). But this has got to be a well downloaded app right? I'm talking 1000's probably just in the first day, so where are the other reviews/ratings?
Does anyone know if:
1) Apple has humans approve all ratings/reviews before letting them show?
2) Apple has an algorithm for passing/rejecting ratings/reviews?
3) What is the exact time delay between posting a review/rating and it appearing on the App Store?
Also-> Have you had any experience with a review or rating not showing in the App Store ever or only after a long delay?
