Daily Leg Workout is rated at 4.7 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 3.5 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

Daily Leg Workout has 82 ratings in Google Play, so its 4.7 star rating is has a solid sampling. Daily Leg Workout Free has over 1,000 ratings and a 4.6 star rating.

Why, then, the much lower, though not egregiously lower, rating in the Amazon Appstore? If you look at the ratings, there are only 11 reviews overall at the time of this writing. All of the 1-star ratings appear to be joke ratings. At the very least, superman75's, and he 1-star rates every FAOTD, is. The other two complain that this is a "woman's app" because men need work on their belly ... and seem to be joke reviews, too.

Remove those, and the average rating rises to 4.5. Interestingly enough, the FAOTD for March 1 was Daily Ab Workout.

Daily Leg Workout is also in the App Store, selling for $0.99 with a 4.5 star rating.
