An excellent post by Henri Liriani on the topic every mobile developer has issues with: reviews & ratings.

Summary

  • Surface review interactions to the dialog, don’t make me leave the app.
  • Don’t require a password to leave a review, I own the app already don’t I?
  • Remove message text in review prompts. They’re the same in every app.
  • Merge the title + review fields.
  • Lose the useless “Later” button and limit prompts to once per version.
  • If possible, prompt for a review after a reasonable amount of time (i.e. not the first day I have the app) and after a positive interaction.
  • Remember ratings from previous versions, so subsequent review prompts are always constructive and don’t feel redundant.

My talk during the App Promotion Summit in London on how important localization is for your appstore meta data. Including 4 showcases of success.

  • What elements of your app store presence can be localised?
  • What impact can you achieve with localisation?
  • How to manage and deliver localisation effectively?
