Best MS Access viewer and editor on Mac OS X

access
In my opinion our “ACCDB MDB Database Pro” and “Access Database Manager” are the best Microsoft Access Database viewer and editor on Mac OS X right now.  The two App’s main difference is the latter one have in-app purchase product in it. But sometimes I am just confused why user still buying other App which didn’t update in two or three years, and that App have much less features. Maybe it’s because we are lacking marketing, currently all this is in nature growth, we did nothing marketing work yet.

(Following “App rating system” means the system for customer give review and rating, it does not mean the App Content/Age Rating )

Meanwhile the App rating system seems quite broken, we can’t prevent our App from competitor rating,  the App is great although it have some bugs, but it shouldn’t get one star most of the time ( 25 one star and only one 4 star right now ). There have nearly or over 10 competitor App on the market, I am not sure whether the rating system can make the rating honest and fair.

Maybe the five star rating should change similar to facebook’s thumb up and thumb down rating.

I think most of our user like our App actually, and they don’t want spend extra time to go to App Store and give a rating review, they just enjoy using the App.  So the real data maybe thousands of user like our App and they didn’t give rating, and just 25 user dislike our App and give a one star rating. So if the rating system can some how show most of the user didn’t give a rating and only a small fraction user give a one star rating, this maybe make the data more fair.

If you read the one star review, you can see there’s not much fair review or constructive review in there.  Someone say don’t buy it or don’t waste money, and someone say there’s missing one feature then give a one star.  It makes the Developer quite disappoint when read the review, because the words really hurts. So right now we just ignore the one star review, it just not reasonable for our hard working.

App user seems quite like give free App five star, our Windows Phone free App and Android free App got quite much five stars review from our user, the review is quite positive and make the developer full of energy to make the App better.

The rating sometime also influenced by competitor, if there’s many competitor or big competitor in the market,  we can find more bad rating review coming along. So currently the App rating system is quite flawed.
