No matter how good your mobile app is, there will always be at least one person who will trash it with a one-star rating on the App Store, just because some people can’t help hating on things. App developer Todd Ransom, who has developed an app that maps out the areas surrounding the gorgeous waterfalls of western North Carolina, explains on Twitter that his app has gotten a one-star review for the most ridiculous possible reason: The reviewer got stung by yellow jackets while using the app.
“Is there any way to post a warning about a trail or fall?” the reviewer wrote. “Today we tried to hike up to Hickey Fork Falls and ran into a huge yellow jacket ground nest. It’s on the left side of trail right after you cross over a little stream using the moss covered hewed log. Nest is 25-30ft after log crossing. We both got stung multiple times, including our dog. Do not hike this trail!”
While we have no doubt that Ransom took a lot of time mapping out all of the details in these areas in North Carolina, though we think it’s a tad unfair to expect him to know where every single bees’ nest is along the trail. We look forward to the next person who gives his app a one-star review because they tripped over a rock that the app failed to warn them about.
