Nothing But New News

Hello, Raters! We’re sorry we’ve been out of touch for a while, but it’s because we’ve been hard at work on all kinds of exciting things that we hope will improve your Rating experience and remind you how much we value your support. We’ve got a lot to share and even more to celebrate.

The first big development is the release of v1.2 for iPhone. Not only does this update fix many of the bugs you’ve been telling us about, but it’s also compatible with iOS5, meaning you can Rate from your amazing new iPhone.  You can download the update from the iTunes market. To commemorate the release, the folks at are donning their RateThis! tees while they film hilarious videos on November 13, 2011. Be sure to check it out here.

The second and most important reason to celebrate, loyal Raters, is you. We realize we would be lost without your support, so we’re launching a contest to reward our most avid fans.  It runs from November 13 to December 13, so post as many Rates as you possibly can during that time. The prizes are nothing short of amazing.

  • The Rater who uploads the most Rates will receive an iPad2
  • The runner up wins an 8GB iPod Touch.
  • The most popular Rate posted will earn the Rater a $50 iTunes gift card
  • The second most popular Rate wins a $25 iTunes gift card.

It’s the least we can do to show our appreciation. Currently this contest is only available to US-based Raters, but we’re working on a way of expanding our contestant pool.

Finally, we are on the verge of launching our new website. It’s sleek and easy to use, just like the RateThis! app. We hope you’ll turn to the site for all your RateThis! news and information. Once it’s live, we promise to keep it up to date with the latest and greatest.

So now it’s your turn, Raters, to check out what we’ve been up to and let us know what you think. Download the update, visit on the 13th and upload as many Rates as you can! We’ll let you know when the website is live. Until then, Happy Rating!
