Sonos iPhone controller needs ratings

by Volker Weber

Sonos has made a really nice iPhone controller and gives it away for free, saving you from buying their own gear. What I think is a but unfair, are the high number of bad ratings in the iTunes store. Here is a picture for the German store:

If you like your Sonos, why don't you make a short trip to iTunes and give them a five star rating and maybe some friendly words in the review.

Somewhat related: the iPad controller is coming ... :-)

I am not an iTunes ratings expert, but I think that this rating is already pretty good.

I believe you are only explicitly asked to rate an app when uninstalling it (after you decided you don't need/hate it). That would explain that the ratings are worse than on other systems.

Anyway, will rate it now.

Done! 5 stars + short review. Wonderful app. Thank you Sonos! Can't wait for the iPad version :-)

Any iPhone app you give away for free will cop a lot of poor ratings. iPhone owners with app fetishes will download pretty much anything whether they want it or not. Most of the poor ratings will be from people who don't own Sonos gear and expect it to be free.

That makes sense. So the 20 people in the chart above are just morons.

Kind of reminds me of some Amazon reviews I've seen. People rate a book/video/whatever low because it didn't arrive on time, was the wrong item, or Amazon Customer Service sucked. So, you get an app, for FREE, from iTunes and you didn't like it? It. Was. Free.

Oh, wait, I think I understand: The morons have granted some measure of "power."

Actually I don't like it. I like that they have an app, but it sure lacks usability. There are for example so many steps necessary to achieve something, if you know what I mean. It's not what I'm used from the Apple-World in so many other aplications. Maybe I'm just spoiled however I hope the iPad app gets a lot better for that matter.

Thanks for reminding me to do it. Done now. Guys deserve a slap on their shoulders for an excellent piece of soft.
