Here you can read some reasons why you could not be seeing your review in Google Play or App Store:
- Sometimes it takes up to 48 hours until you can see a review in the app store. Maybe Google or Apple are not showing the review at that moment or it is taking longer than expected. This is something out of our control and it depends on their own algorithms.
- In iOS reviews, bear in mind that you need to check each country, since reviews are shown in the country where the user made the review.

Users of the platform will only review an app if they wish to do so and find it appropriate. Nobody is obligated to leave any reviews. No users will be charged nor paid for giving or receiving a review and there are no rules or standards in regards to the rating that should be given to other members of the community. Reviews will be based on the honest opinion of each user after trying the app. For this reason, the community doesn’t violate any policies of Android or iOS.

So far there has not been any known case of members having problems caused by the use of this service, however, the actions taken by the app stores are way beyond our control.
