App store review changes

Following much irritation with its App store reviews, Apple has over the weekend made changes to the user review process. Anyone wishing to leave a review for an application is now blocked unless they have bought the app. This should eliminate the idiots posting stupid comments and bad reviews without trying the app, and will hopefully result in a more meaningful rating system that genuine shoppers can trust.

While this will be of little benefit to the authors of free applications (though I expect some benefit will be gained since the time wasters have to download the app), it should help those making a living from their software. Now if only someone could get rid of those darn ‘first post’ jokers.
