Many of us like trying new apps. But take a moment to check out the ratings and permissions before installing that app. Does that calculator app really need to know your location or send an SMS on your behalf? If it’s asking for more permissions than it needs, the app could be malware. When in doubt, check out the ratings, read the comments and consider downloading another app. http://goo.gl/ITfpve #staysafe

- Only yesterday I saw an app that I thought about getting and didn't get in the end because it had terrible ratings.Oct 21, 2013
- The suggestions for checking out ratings and reviews, might be a good one, and actually mean something ; ifdidn't allow dev and apps to be blatantly astroturfed.
The reviews and comments might be worth something, if I knew they were real. But seeing as how, I now know app developers can and are offered the option to buy fake favorable reviews and and high ratings. (not saying Google is doing the offering, but it's allowed and I hardly doubt Google isn't aware) Your rating and comment system no longer have any value to me. Nov 19, 2013
