Let users review your FileMaker iOS application

With next MBS FileMaker Plugin you can ask the user to review your application.

The StoreKit.RequestReview function allows you to ask the user to rate your application. The function returns directly and the dialog shows asynchronously.

Although you should call this method when it makes sense in the user experience flow of your app, the actual display of a rating/review request view is governed by App Store policy. Because this method may or may not present an alert, it's not appropriate to call it in response to a button tap or other user action.

When you call this method while your app is still in development mode, a rating/review request view is always displayed so that you can test the user interface and experience. However, this method has no effect when you call it in an app that you distribute using TestFlight.

When you call this method in your shipping app and a rating/review request view is displayed, the system handles the entire process for you. In addition, you can continue to include a persistent link in the settings or configuration screens of your app that deep-links to your App Store product page. To automatically open a page on which users can write a review in the App Store, append the query parameter action=write-review to your product URL.

Coming soon in the next MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.2 prerelease.
