Apple "Continued issues with the App Store approval process are prompting developers to shun the platform entirely. Though there are tens of thousands of other developers pumping out over 100000 iPhone apps, will continued migration away from iPhone development result in less quality software for the platform? Worse yet, will users even care?"

Are you asking if it's possible for users to rate apps? Yes, there is such a system. But I'm not talking about users rating an app that is otherwise safe. I'm talking about users even being ABLE to rate something after they installed some malware, and it bricked their phone. Well, maybe they can do it from their PC. They can say, "This app just cost me $500, because it bricked my phone, I was still in contract, and Apple wouldn't fix it," or at the very least, "I lost all my contacts and emails because this app bricked my phone, and Apple had to wipe it. Next time, I'll remember to sync."
