    I noticed something....

    App reviews are all over the place.

    For example Evernote, the first four reviews are older than three years old. One of the reviews were from when Obama was a new president.

    Old to say the least.

    Is there a way to sort app reviews by age?

    I wish they would fix this. Very annoying and a step back for apple. I went ahead and submitted feedback. More then likey this has already been reported.

    I reported this in the early beta. Not sure why they needed to remove this feature - Apple really needs to fix this.

    Sort reviews by date / positive / negative

    Please provide feedback through the feedback app.

    Yeah, I find it ridiculous that we can’t filter reviews or sort them. Almost as if Apple wants so much control over the App Store that they would curate reviews based on what they want us to read. Sounds crazy, I know, but not that crazy.

    On top of this, I think the new layout for the App store does not flows well. Feels discombobulated.

    I’m not using the 11.3 beta but I think I might have read that sorting app reviews by date is now possible. I sure hope so, that has rankled me to no end. I don’t see any need to see a review from years ago when I’m looking at a recently updated version of an app.

    It is possible, here are the options on sorting app reviews...Most Helpful, Most Favourable, Most Critical and lastly Most Recent.

    YAY ! It was so annoying when they made that change a few months ago that I cut way back on even looking at new apps.

    Do they, by chance, also now show the size of updates like they used to? Another nice feature that was eliminated.
