    On the basis of 4.5 star rating and countless glowing reviews I downloaded the (thankfully) free task manager app so that I could kill unnecessary processes.

    It doesn't work. It never registers that an app is open.

    I went back to the review page and scrolled down. Eventually I found the 1star reviews that stated the app didn't work. They were like harsh little protruding pebbles in a lake of glimmering gold.

    All the positive, 5 star reviews seem unrealistic, even if the app HAD done what it claimed.

    Is there a way for devs to spam their crap with glowing reviews?

    It's possible they might have multiple BB & dev devices with different BBID's, plus other people they know.

    Or maybe the app really did work for others and it's just "one of those things."

    "One of those things" happens a lot in the old Blackberry OS 7 or lower.

    Dev has pretty good control over the app development for the new BB10 so "One of those things" rarely happen here

    It is likely that most people didn't experience what you did. I've downloaded apps that had a couple, "it doesn't work" reviews that worked fine for me.

    What version are you running? Type "Myver" and hit the space bar.

    I'm running Z10STL100-2/10.1.0.4633

    I kind of hope it really is "just one of those things" even if I do hold the short straw!
