“Stop taking pictures and put your hand on my vagina.”
— Amanda Palmer, said in the very first hour of 2011, at the epic New Year’s Eve Dresden Dolls show.
Criticisms of App Engine that I’ve seen fall into two rough categories:
- OMG! I overran my quota!
- I don’t get it. It’s too hard to do what I believe is a very simple thing.
“Kellykago” has this gem of feedback about WOD on the Apple App Store:
No back up ★★
I loved this app until I had to restore my IPOD to factory settings due to some problems and then discovered that a years worth of workout logs was lost. I guess I was dumb enough to think my records somehow were backed up on my ITunes. I’ll stick to my ▉▉▉ ▉▉▉▉ for tracking workouts from ▉▉▉▉▉▉▉.com.
Sic, naturally. And partly censored, since it’s not clear if this is a spam advertisement or not. iTunes doesn’t provide any way to respond to these “reviews,” which are often uninformed, wrong, or misguided.
Hey Kellykago, fuck you. Fuck you and your idiot fucking ass. I don’t want your business, and you can go drop a fucking barbell on your head. You are:
- A fucking coward, since you left this shitty note about my app without ever contacting me over the established channels that iTunes provides. I would gladly have tried to help you out, but you never even bothered.
- A fucking idiot, because there are two ways provided to back up your logs, and you’re clearly too thick to have figured out either of them. For one, if you sync your device to iTunes, you have a backup of everything WOD logs, along with all the data from all of your other apps. Even if you did a factory restore, you could have restored that backup and had everything you had in the app, along with every other app you have. Two, even if that isn’t enough, I spent a lot of time putting together an online backup and restore service. So yeah, there are two ways of doing exactly what you said didn’t exist in the app. And even if either of them had failed, and you didn’t get your data back, how the hell is that a fault of mine?
So, please, go fuck yourself, you fucking idiot.
