- Time the Prompt:
While asking for review will help you to increase the app rating, but it is also very important to time the prompt properly within the user experience. Many apps developer make the mistake of asking for reviews upon the user downloading the app. unfortunately, this makes for a poor user experience, and users are less likely to leave a review because the app is interrupting the normal user flow.
A better way to ask for the review is to wait until the user has accomplished something within your app or finished with his/her intended task.
- Run a Contest for App users:
Another great way to increase mobile app reviews and rating is to run a contest. Choose a prize of a user those leaving a review, and encourage them to post a review and invite their friends to participate in the contest. Choose winner from the list monthly, weekly and publish on your social profile and website.
If you want to get more positive reviews for your app, take the time, make a plan and think about people first. Give your users time to enjoy your app, provide great support.
