One of the worst nightmares of any developer is to wake up in the morning and find out their app’s rating has suddenly crashed. This is exactly what happened to many Android app developers who noticed unusual activity with their Google Play Store ratings after December 10, 2013. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a flurry of 5 stars. Instead, developers began to sweat it out, as they watched 1′s, 2′s, and 3′s slowly diminish their 4 – 5 ratings. After research and reaching out to Android app developers through Google+, Facebook, and online forums, a picture of what happened and the unintended, surprising results has been crafted by Android app developers.
