    Few weeks ago when I bought iPad I had stars ratings under apps or songs in itunes or app store on iPad, but they suddenly disappeared less tham week ago... They are not visible in the preview of apps, only when I tap on each app I see stars aboce reviews. Is there any solution?

    Maybe you were browsing the US store, now you're on the UK store?

    Nope, the prices are in USD and I am sure that I am browsing US store. It happens only in preview, when I tap the icon of an app and tham enter to its descriptions I normally see stars inside.

    I noticed the same thing this week. There used to be star ratings at the summary level and now you have to click on the app and go to the detailed level to see the rating.

    This sucks!

    Not fond of this. Now I am less inclined to buy a cheap app since I have to see if it's any good first. I suspect the developers might be complaining? In fact, now I don't even feel like browsing to see if there are any fun little apps because it's too much effort.

    Same here and yes I noticed this about a week ago. I was really pissed. Even restarted my Ipad just to make sure.

    You are right! The review stars are gone from the lists of apps! This sucks. I hate wasting time clicking through to a poorly rated app. I think this is a dumb choice by Apple; Some people are just going to get bummed out on shopping the app store and end up buying fewer apps.

    I thought it might just be a temporary glitch, but it's not changing back! Blues.

    Could be just a glitch. Anyone tried to restore iPad?

    It is not a glitch, I restored my iPad yesterday and still no stars ratings. I hope nobody thinks I am trying to hijack this thread, but I have searched the forums for this and it seems like an appropriate place to ask this question.... Can anyone tell me how to rate an app after purchasing it on an iPad, other than the rating system whereby they ask you to rate it when you delete it?

    Go to the page for the app in the App Store. There's a "Rate this app:" section in Customer Ratings underneath the screenshots.

    Well, that's what I thought, and I remember seeing it there. But now I swear I can't find it! This includes both apps I have purchased or not. No one else is having this problem?

    Have you guys also noticed that the coverflow browser for the App Store on the iPad is MIA? I'm not sure how long this has been the case, but I can't seem to find it in the latest 4.2 GM.

    They seem fine to me unless I'm not understanding what you mean? I open up the app store, I see apps with ratings beneath them.
