Quarantined Wuhan students get app booted from store to avoid homework

  • Chinese kids give homework app poor reviews in order to get it removed from Apple App Store

Most students were happy being off school and enjoying an extended holiday following the Chinese New Year celebrations - until their schools made a decision to start using DingTalk, a communication app from Alibaba Group, to allocate homework to students on a daily basis.

The app has received over 1,500 reviews in the App Store, and there's a chance this number would further increase depending on how long the students are forced to stay at home and use DingTalk for studying remotely.

Not all the one-star reviews were negative with one user teasing, "thank you for letting me reunite with my teachers".

"5 stars in installments". "I downloaded this app just to give it a one star", reads another.

The sly move from the kids has also made the rounds on Twitter, with many users delighting in it as one of the few lighthearted updates to come out of China, where the outbreak originated and first struck the hardest.

The kids somehow realised that if they gave a bad review to the application on the app store, it might be scrapped entirely. "I'm only five years old myself, please don't kill me", the app appealed. "Just want to save an excellent app from coronavirus!".
