Why do you think this is more prevalent in Turkey than in other countries? Is there something unique about Turkish culture that would cause this misunderstanding or misprioritization?



>> "Why do you think this is more prevalent in Turkey than in other countries?"

If you're referencing the fact that they don't understand the apps are made by third parties it isn't limited to turkey. I'm an iOS developer and the number of people that think I 'work for Apple' is incredible.


One of my older relatives thinks I work "for the internet".


A master of the web. A webmaster.


I suspect the misconceptions are wider spread than Turkey, though the meme of giving one star reviews to be "at the top" has yet to spread.

Hopefully this article, and others like it, do not give the meme a bump up across the language barrier.
