Increase the visibility of your Windows Phone 8 apps
Store visibility and app success go hand-in-hand, so it is imperative that you do as much as you possibly can to stand out from your competitors. Store ratings are a great way to catch the attention of potential new users, and can be the difference between your app being downloaded or avoided in favour of an alternative.
Nokia has created the Rate My App code for Windows Phone 8 to generate an unintrusive reminder for your users to leave a rating on your app, a process that many tend to forget about. It's a deceptively simple process that can generate significant gains, and many developers have already taken advantage of it.
Windows Phone developer Random Salad Games implemented the Rate My App code into their Solitaire and Pirate's Path games. Once implemented into Solitaire, the app saw a marked increase in its star ratings and Pirate's Path is now one of the Windows Phone store's top games. The Rate My App code has helped it achieve over 2,000 reviews in the first 30 days!
"We saw an increase of hundreds of reviews in just a couple of weeks... I think the rating code is working very nicely, and we are definitely planning to implement this in more of our future updates and games" - Random Salad Games
The rating solution can be implemented with relative ease, meaning you don't need to spend a lot of time away from your current projects. Increased downloads means an increased chance to monetise, so be sure to take advantage of this.
