    So when I look to get a new app, I like to read some of the reviews. Lately though I am seeing some bad reviews that are also saying that the good reviews are lies and a put up by the developers of the app.

    How do people really know if a review is legit?

    I rarely read the reviews on the market. I look at the overall rating, then check reviews from other sources.

    Reviews on the Market will be obscenely harsh simply because somebody wants an extra feature added that isn't there yet, or will trash the app for something as stupid as lack of a changelog. It's rare anybody in the market gives a fair review of an app based simply on what it was designed to do.

    More and more, I've been seeing reviews that simply say "does what it says" and I find these to be very helpful. I've also noticed way too many opinions, in a review, that don't apply to the functionality or stability of the app. Things like - "with all the problems in today's world, we don't need content like this in a game" and then they give it one star without ever playing it WTF?!?! One thing I do appreciate, in a review, is a heads up about potential problems. And example would be a photo safe I almost installed. Luckily, one reviewer explained that when you hide a pic (using that app), the extension gets changed and if you unisntall it, all photos with the new extension are deleted. That's a big deal. I've also seen bad reviews for an app that the reviewer felt was pointless, that's where the "it does what it says" review is appropriate.

    Tis a good question because I don't know who's giving Netflix app all those 4+5 star ratings.
