One of the best things about being an iPhone app reviewer is the right to be opinionated. If you aren’t equally blessed in occupation, or if you just have a healthy sense of taste, you’ll love the RateThis! iPhone app from CookieJar Solutions.

With RateThis! you’ll never have to repress the urge to tell it like it is again. Ready to join a global group of opinion givers and seekers? You’ll want to pay attention to my iPhone app review of RateThis!


The RateThis! iPhone app is a hot bed of opinions. The idea is to cast your vote in a verses battle to the death between two items. Simply tap on the one you prefer to have your voice heard.

There is also an option to submit your own pictures for rating. Use the in-app camera plug in or access pics in your gallery to create a rating war of your very own. It’s an easy way to find out what other people think.

Developers are pitching the RateThis! iPhone app as a simple way to tap in to a global opinion data base to help you make decisions. So next time you decide to buy a car, consider dying your hair or want to know which one of your children is more deserving of your love, give RateThis! a whirl and find out what the public thinks.

I think RateThis! is a nice step up from a randomized decision maker. I’ve never seen an app quite like it before. Several times I found myself wishing for a comment system. Otherwise I like it. There are even options to share your comparisons, profile status and more via email, Facebook and Twitter.


User Interface:

The RateThis! iPhone app’s user interface manages to be simple yet intriguing. Options to create new ratings, access the current ratings battles, view your rating history, profile, settings and help are all outlined in a sleek black and white list.

A minimalist motif of black and white puts each comparison front and center. A unique side scroll design allows you to navigate, skip or alter your response to comparisons with ease. Again, I’ve never seen an app quite like this before, and that’s saying something.

I like the thoughtful design functions and unfussy appearance a lot.


My only complaint about the RateThis! iPhone app is the lack of comparisons. I’m sure the amount will flesh out as this app gains notoriety. I breezed through about 215 comparisons in less than ten minutes, and then the app politely asked me to submit my own comparisons.

Other than the limited amount of comparisons to register my opinion about, RateThis! worked like a charm. Each link functioned properly, and the UI was fabulous.


Like most apps that earn five stars in this section, the RateThis! iPhone app is available for free. I adore free apps, especially when they’re interesting and original. There aren’t even any nasty ads mucking up the app. That’s a rare thing to find these days.

The bottom line is that downloading and checking out RateThis! may be the coolest thing you do today, so go get it.
