foodpanda may now be the lowest rated app on the Play Store
The Google Play Store may have just gotten a dark mode, but probably even gloomier is foodpanda. The app is now probably the lowest rated app on the Play Store, as netizens decided to not only vote with their wallet, but also with their Google accounts.
Initially, users were calling for a boycott of the app by uninstalling the apps from their devices en masse in support of the riders. However some bright ones then suggested giving the foodpanda app a low rating, with the goal being the removal of the app from the Play Store by Google given the low ratings.
The whole fiasco started when foodpanda decided to adjust their riders’ salary structure, although it was probably worse when foodpanda Malaysia’s Managing Director added even more fuel to the fire when questioned about the decision by malaysiakini.
Just for laughs, I Googled for the “lowest rated play store app” and stumbled upon the One Star App: The Lowest Rated App. And guess what, it got a better rating at 1.6/5.0. So yeah, I do believe the headline is pretty accurate.
We doubt Google will remove the app since foodpanda is a legit company. Meanwhile, over on Apple’s App Store, the app still enjoys a strong 3.7 star rating. I guess there are more Android users in support of this movement than iOS users?
