Gaming the iTunes charts by buying reviews and downloads. Doable? Risky?

    Hey all.

    I am getting paid to market a free iPhone app. I noticed that there are toplists for most downloaded apps on iTunes. I am considering buying downloads (and reviews if needed) to make "my" app get into top 10 for its category. I have never done this before, so my questions are as follows:
    1. Is this doable, or do the bayesian filters and other warning systems tell iTunes that I am trying to cheat?
    2. Is this risky? Might the app be removed from iTunes if I try to game the system?
    3. Is this worthwhile? Do people use the top charts to find apps?
    4. Any other ideas or experiences you wish to share about this? I am grateful for anything you'd like to share.

    Thx

    Hey ThreadKiller! 1. If you do everything correctly, I don´t think that iTunes will know you´re cheating. 2. However, if they find out somehow your app can be removed from iTunes App Store! (There are some reports in the internet about people, whose apps got banned!).
    3. It is definitely worthwhile! Lots of people find new apps in the App Store charts.
    Hope this could help a bit! :)

    Yours

    It will be hard for you to find a good supplier of reviews and downloads. But if you do everything correctly you shouldn't had any problems.. I haven't done this in the past, but I suppose iTunes doesn't have better security systems than Google Play, for wich you can find a service here on bhw.

    Currently, we are working only on app ratings and reviews. We are also looking to upgrade our service for music and books but it seems we will still need more time.

    Hi,

    I can help with installs and reviews for iOS. I can do 30k+ installs per day.
    I have also a service where I can put any keyword to the TOP 5.

    Contact me on Skype if you are interested!
