    Hey, guys!

    There is a super cool way to get tons of FREE ratings from users for your game, using an Apple "Ratings and Reviews" interface. Several ratings per day? Easy!

    Does anyone know how to implement that in BB?

    Just put an Event Observer in your UI and set it to Request Review.

    Is it asking everytime I get into this interface? Or can we set it up?

    Edit: Is this also available for Android?

    It's iOS only as it using Apples StoreKit.
    It appears every time you enter the UI with the Event Observer in, but you can just duplicate the UI and put a second Event Observer in to Redirect the User after they've see it once.

    You can set it up. Add the specific value to 'Plays before Request'. This means it doesn't show up that many times until it asks again. Total it asks 3 times per version you upload to the store. Then never shows up again.

    Is it set to 3 times per live version by default?

    On the build I’m working on it shows up every time on my iPhone.

    Once a user rates it doesn't show up anymore.
    When you test your game (aka not live yet in the appstore) it shows up all the time with the specified frequency. Try to rate it, you'll see that the submit button is grayed out. This changes though once the app is live. Apple permits only 3 times. This is the official iOS review APK that was implemented directly into Buildbox. Very cool indeed.

    I don't think you need to connect the Event Observer to a World or UI.

    Hey AaroArts, thanks for your help but after I changed that there was still no prompt. :( Maybe apple has to review it first I'll wait ;)
