Fakespot is an Android application for analyzing the authenticity of user reviews. This utility provides additional insight into a product to help you make a better decision.
Fakespot is a simple app that can recognize fake comments and ratings. Unfortunately, some companies use unscrupulous techniques to represent the products they sell in a favorable light. For example, retailers may encourage clients to write positive reviews by offering them cash, discounts or other benefits.
This utility analyzes texts on authenticity and gives them a grade. Thus, users can be better informed about the real quality of the product. You will be able to more objectively compare similar items, avoid poor quality goods and make better decisions. It is possible to use the app while buying stuff with Amazon Shopping or anywhere else online.
However, the design of the application leaves much to be desired. Firstly, each analysis takes a very long time even if the amount of reviews is not very big. Secondly, if you minimize the app while it works, then the scan stops immediately. Lastly, the utility seems to give bad grades to genuine reviews.
