App Review

What is App Review?

Twinr provides a way through which App owners can prompt their App users to leave a feedback in the form of Reviews or Ratings. Those feedbacks directly appears on the PlayStore and AppStore listing.

How to setup App Review?

1.) Go to Add-ons --> Extensions --> App Review & enable it.

NOTE: Please create a new version of the App e.x. 1.0.2, if the current version does not support this feature. If the previous version is live on the stores, then request a new build and submit this new version to the stores.

2.) Provide App Review Schedule. The schedule starts from the day user installs the app. For example, if you want to prompt for the feedback on the 10th, 60th, 100th time user opens the app, then put 10, 60, 100 in the field.

3.) Click on Save as Draft

NOTE: As per the Apple and Google guidelines, you can prompt users for the review once in a month. So the gap between the schedules must be 30 days. If you put 1, 5, 10, 15, 35, 50, and for example user opens app everyday, then review will prompt on 1st and 35th day. The rest will be skipped.
