Yes, feel free to submit feedback at http://ajet.net/ios-app/support/
I'm always open to constructive
criticism, suggestions, ideas, content you want submit, found bugs, etc. If you think something can be presented better or whatever, feel free to share your ideas. I'm fully open to good ideas; UI, content, whatever. Not sure what you mean by ITIL honest or Carebear Stare. You either give good feedback or bad feedback.
Let's talk about giving feedback for apps, while we're on the subject.Good Feedback
Hey, I noticed you don't have a lot of buttons and machine translations in the Japanese section. Just clothes washing stuff. Could you add some more? I could really use some washing machine button translations and also for air conditioners.
(Requests more content specifically, isn't jerk about it)Bad Feedback
This is pretty crappy. Why can't you make something like the BBC or USA Today app? They're much better. Also, you need more stuff.
(Not constructive at all. Why is it "crappy"? What "stuff" should be added?)
Here is also an example for the app store...

It's a really nice program and a great start for an [app] dedicated to JETs. It's especially helpful for people new to Japan and can't speak much Japanese.
There is still room for improvement. The feeds for lesson plans connect to a website that is not too easy to see on an iPhone. The emergency section only has English and romaji, adding Japanese characters would be easier to read.
The Japanese section is most useful with information that may be needed on a daily basis.
I gave it a 3 because it's a great start but still a lot of room to get better. Looking forward to some updates.
See? This person tells me changes which will improve the app and also what he/she liked as well. This is good feedback and they voted fairly based on their observation. Because of this good feedback
, the next version will address some, if not all, of these issues the reviewer had. The reviewer didn't sugarcoat the issues, but wasn't rude about them either.
Also, how people come across will determine how seriously developers will take them. Being disrespectful or rude will cause an email to go in the trash and ignored. If a person can't be professional while giving feedback, why would anyone take them seriously?
So if anyone has any ideas or think something should be done different, by all means, let me know. While I can't please everyone, I'll try to make it as useful as I can.
