Ho ho ho!
Before the review, some housekeeping things:

Note: The purpose of reviews are to offer constructive criticism to improve products and/or to sell item(s). If you signed up for a review to merely get praise, you can go to any of the other far-too-nice reviewers. I’m not the meanest reviewer out there, mind you, but I will help you improve your blog.
“App Data” is an iPhone/iPod Touch App Review Blog. Although the blog claims to offer reviews on not only apps but also cases and other products, this are seldom seen. The first thing I see is a sticky post welcoming me, with a “click me for a random post” button that doesn’t actually take me anywhere. The reviews are very detailed and informative. If I were looking for reviews for apps, this would be an excellent place to go to.
However, a lack of variety and so many posts could scare me away.
Red text – eye burning red, that is – is terrible. I really don’t see why so many people use it so terribly. The crew at App Data would be much better off using the default black coloured text or creating a workable colour scheme, because at the moment the default red and default blue aren’t working too well. The moving header is nice, and the colours used could help steer “App Data” into a colour scheme.
There are several clear graphics in the posts, obviously required in a review blog. But the colour of the text is a big turn-off.
There’s really not much else I can add to this [fairly short] review. “App Data”, while having great reviews, is just a generic review blog with very little to make me want to visit again. It also suffers from colour scheme problems, and needs to sort that out immediately.
FINAL SCORE; 3/5
