    Which bright spark thought it would be a great idea to not show most recent reviews on the iPhone App Store, like it used to be?

    Is it me or is there no way of scrolling to most recent without manually clicking 'more reviews' a thousand times to get there. All I get now is the first and sometimes they're ages old

    It's not just you.

    They changed this a few weeks ago and I filed a bug to them but they haven't responded.

    The thing is, it's not even always sorted by the oldest first.

    Thanks. I wondered.

    Didn't realise it was a bug. I just thought they'd just changed it. The previous incarnation of the App Store was a whole lot easier to read on the ip4 too. Something about the scrolling down was a lot nicer than this side to side version too I thought.

    Am still seeing oldest reviews first in App Store on iPhone. Months on, am guessing this is not going to revert back to the sensible way of viewing. ie., newest first.

    That's just ridiculous. Who wants to wade through 'more reviews' a thousand times now that they only move on by about barely 3 or 4 at a time.

    Am I the only one that sees this now? Oldest reviews first? Surely if it was a bug it wouldn't still be like this? Is it an ip4 thing?

    No, definitely not you nor is it just an iphone 4 issue. Old reviews are showing up for me as well. I thought there was something wrong with the App Store. :O

    Obviously this is meant to be?
    One of the most unexplainable moves they've implemented. What's worse is because of thIs new way of scrolling and it only showing 4 or 5 at a time, it'd take forever to get the recent ones. Even the old App Store was better for that too. Shame

    And just so they don't have to bother fixing this issue anymore, the reviews are all now dateless

    I hope I get a reply, I didn't want to start a new thread with the same title.

    Why do some very popular apps not have any reviews? I'm talking about apps that are clearly good, popular apps. You know they SHOULD have reviews but they don't. What's with that? It's stopped me downloading more than a couple of things.

    If the app has been recently updated, there might not be reviews for the latest version.

    There might also be a country restriction.

    There are many very weird and wrong things with that App Store now. The reviews are still oldest first but you just don't know it because there is no date.

    I think some reviews don't get through. I've had some not gone through.
