Why is it that when I sometimes want to write a short review on an app I get a message that I cannot write a review unless I "own" the app and that I should first download it? It's a free app that I've already downloaded. In fact, the app itself sometimes ask for you to rate it and then takes you to the rating / review in the app store.

That seems a bit unfair. Whether or not you have the app installed, if you downloaded that app from Apple's App Store it should allow you to write a review.

I have never tried to write a review for an app I didn't currently own, but I just clicked on "Write a review" for two apps I didn't have and it took me to it. My first idea of why you aren't able to is that maybe they only want reviews from people that own the app.

Does this happen with all apps that you don't currently own?
