How can we improve the Windows platform?

Show app review rating worldwide!

I understand that it makes sense to only show app reviews only in those countrys were they come from. E.g. a German review should only be shown in Germany (and maybe in Switzerland and Austria). What I don't understand is, that you also showing the app rating in countries, were they come from.

For example: An app has 20 ratings. 15 from Germany (all with 4 stars), 1 from USA (1 star) and 4 from France (5 stars)

If you now open the app in the Windows Phone Store from Germany, you will see a total app review rating of 15 (4 stars). If you open the app in the US Windows Phone Store, it shows only 1 rating with 1 star. In France it shows 4 ratings with 5 stars and in all other countries it shows 0 ratings!

The total rating should be equal worldwide! :-)

        I totally support this I live in Kenya and windows phone adoption is really low, 80% of the apps have zero reviews. I just recently got a windows phone device after switching from android and the reviews in the playstore were universal

        I totally agree. Thus the app will be getting more downloads worldwide. The more the downloads, the more we get encouraged to build new apps for windows phone / store.

        Sorry, of course I meant for the consumer. This is very important for a developer, because users not often install apps which have no reviews or one bad review. The don't know and don't see that the app already has a lot of good reviews in other countries.
