Suspiciously low readable reviews?

Why are there over 500 ratings of this app and on 3 written reviews currently showing in the App Store? How many written comments are being removed? I use this app and it has improved in the last few months. It’s still very frustrating that the app will not function if it thinks you’re outside the UK (even when I’m in London!!), but the website can handle users that are connecting from outside the UK?

Not great for buying tickets

No charge for buying tickets, but they take so long to appear in the app. At least an email with a pdf version arrives fairly promptly so it can be scanned. And why can’t I add my tickets to my Apple Wallet?
