webOS Developers - Get notified of app reviews with a new service

by Tim Stiffler-Dean Fri, 25 Mar 2011 5:30 pm EDT

If you are a webOS application developer, you know how important it is to keep track of reviews of your products in the app catalog. Many times it is those reviews that are the source of new inspiration for ideas or finding bugs that need to be crushed. Unfortunately most devs only have the option of checking for app reviews manually through the catalog on your device, and that can be an annoying step to add when you're already so busy writing code and trying to build a fan-base.

The guys at Komola, developers of several apps in the catalog, have created a service that they call WebOS Reviews to Mail that makes this task a pretty simple one for any developer with an active app in the catalog and an email address attached. Simply go to their website, reviewtomail.com, and drop your Application ID and Email into the box on the right, and you have instant (and free) access to a service that sends you daily notifications of all downloads and reviews that have been added in the last 24 hours. It is also a handy tool for finding out if your latest submitted version of an app has been pushed through to the catalog. 

So there you have it, check out the new tool from Komola and keep up with your customer reviews in the catalog. You're probably already doing this the hard way (if you care about what reviews you're getting, that is), so why not make life a bit easier with a free service? Can't say if it's going to have any other features added in the future, but there's an email link on that page as well to send your thoughts to the developers. You can bet they don't mind getting reviews of their own.
