Apple adds Rotten Tomatoes to iTunes (other fruits and veggies coming soon)

Typical Apple move: take another service named after a red fruit and add it to iTunes.

Luckily for us, Rotten Tomatoes rocks. I base a lot of my movie-watching on the Tomato-meter, which is really just a meta-score based on reviews from numerous publications. I’ve been accessing RT most recently through iPhone apps like Flixster and Movies Now!, but it’s great to see official Apple integration. RT shows up right above user reviews for movies on iTunes desktop, and right below the star rating within the iTunes app on iPhone.

I don’t know how normal iTunes Store user reviews compare to the “this game SUXX” we see on the App Store, but I’ll take Rotten Tomatoes over Rotten User Reviews any day (not that all user reviews are bad — but you know what I mean).
