Improve app ratings with a rating reminder

It’s no secret that apps with higher ratings (and more of them) receive better placement in the store. Better placement means more downloads, and more downloads means more money. A simple rating reminder can help improve ratings dramatically. *Now with Universal App support!*

    • The reminder opens the store, but not my ratings page for my app. it just opens the first page of the store. Ant ideas on how to get it to open a certain page. tried to ad a NavigateUri but I got a error. How do I get this to work?

    • Thanks for this.
      
      Unfortunately, I'm getting an error when I try and add this control to the toolbox: The following controls were successfully added to the toolbox but are not enabled in the active designer
    • Actually this only happens when I try to add it to the Windows Phone pages of my universal app.
    • Same here, not able to add it to the toolbox...
    • Yes. Even after adding it not able to see it in the toolbox.
    • I have the same problem! 
    • I have the same problem.
    • Has anybody been able to resolve this? The sample works fine, but I can't integrate it into my app.
  • It's not a question but a bug (improper implementation) report

    • You are pretending to support universal app (WinRT) but it's not 100% true, you are not following the WinRT app lifecycle model. For example, if user will exit app by pressing back button, and re-opened it again (tapping on tile or by other way), your control will NOT count that app run.
      So, take a look to the UniversalRateReminder code, or to the MSDN doc, or to the protected override async void OnLaunched(LaunchActivatedEventArgs e) ) and implement a correct way first...

    • Hi there,
      
      This WinJS JavaScript code is not working in VS2013 for Windows Store app using both version one by one ver.1.0.0.5 as well as ver. 1.0.0.9.
      "JavaScript runtime error: 'AppPromo' is undefined"
      
      Also, this WinJS code is woring very fine in VS2012 for Windows Store.
      
      Where is the actual problem?
      
      Thanks
  • Loclaization

    • How did you obtain the localization? Some of them, like Czech or Slovak make absolutely no sense. 
  • Did someone try to integrate this in Unity?

    • Dear Jared,
      do you know if there is a chance to integrate this solution in Unity?
      [prime31] provides an interface for the rating page and it would not be difficult to implement the counters.
      
      But the localization of course is valuable and here already done...
      
      Greetings

    • Hi Jared,
      
      Does this also handle when they review the application or will it keep popping up even after a review?
      
      Thanks
      
    • Actually, there is no API to determine if the user has already rated the app. We could store whether the rating dialog was presented to the user, but we don't really know if they followed through with the rating or not.
      
      Once App Promo asks the user to rate the app it will never ask them again unless you call the ResetCounters method. If you have ideas on how this might be improved, we welcome you to join the Github project.
      
      Thanks!!!
