Apple stops iTunes reviews for apps downloaded with promo code

MacStories just reported that Apple no longer lets users who downloaded apps via a promo code leave reviews in the app store. Both iOS and Mac app stores are affected.

Personally, I think this is a great move. I’m aware of several developers who handed out promo codes in exchange for positive reviews. The results are just too enticing. You could get up to 50 positive reviews at every release of your app with this scheme.
