Redmond now working to improve the Windows Store
Back in 2012, everyone claimed that Microsoft had an app problem because nobody wanted to create programs that would run in the Modern UI of the new operating system.
Now that the company has more or less addressed this problem (some key apps are still missing from Windows 10 though, including Google's), Redmond has more time to spend on improving the quality of the content offered in the store.
And the first step in this direction is to block false and abusive reviews that might be posted for various apps available for download.
As WMPU noticed, Microsoft has recently made a first change to block people from posting false comments on product pages, and the company confirmed in a statement on the official Windows Dev Feedback UserVoice page that this is indeed the case.
“Several features in this request are now live including 1) respond to review, 2) public response to reviews, 3) escalate to support which in a few cases can delete the comment if it violates the policy, 4) technology to detect and remove a large majority of the spam reviews, and 5) how helpful is a comment,” the company said.
