Wired has posted an article on the ethically questionable practice of some iPhone app review sites having developers pay to have their apps reviewed. We at Slide To Play are fervently against this practice, and think it undermines these sites’ credibility. In fact, we’re a founding member of the Organization of App Testing Standards (or OATS), which pledges against this behavior.
Steve Palley, the founder of Slide To Play and our current General Manager, is quoted in the article, as is Jeff Scott of 148Apps.com, also a founding member of OATS. So check out the article, and be aware that some other app review sites might not be completely unbiased in their reviews.
