Appirater is a class that you can drop into any iPhone app (iOS 4.0 or later) that will help remind your users to review your app on the App Store. The code is released under the MIT/X11, so feel free to modify and share your changes with the world. Read on below for how to get started. If you need any help using, the library, post your questions on [Stack Overflow] stackoverflow under the appirater tag.

Getting Started


To add Appirater to your app, add pod "Appirater" to your Podfile.


  1. Appirater provides class methods to configure its behavior. See [Appirater.h] Appirater.h for more information.
[Appirater setAppId:@"552035781"];
[Appirater setDaysUntilPrompt:1];
[Appirater setUsesUntilPrompt:10];
[Appirater setSignificantEventsUntilPrompt:-1];
[Appirater setTimeBeforeReminding:2];
[Appirater setDebug:YES];
  1. Call [Appirater setAppId:@"yourAppId"] with the app id provided by Apple. A good place to do this is at the beginning of your app delegate's application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method.
  2. Call [Appirater appLaunched:YES] at the end of your app delegate's application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method.
  3. Call [Appirater appEnteredForeground:YES] in your app delegate's applicationWillEnterForeground: method.
  4. (OPTIONAL) Call [Appirater userDidSignificantEvent:YES] when the user does something 'significant' in the app.


Setting [Appirater setDebug:YES] will ensure that the rating request is shown each time the app is launched.


Make sure you set [Appirater setDebug:NO] to ensure the request is not shown every time the app is launched. Also make sure that each of these components are set in the application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method.

This example states that the rating request is only shown when the app has been launched 5 times and after 7 days.

[Appirater setAppId:@"770699556"];
[Appirater setDaysUntilPrompt:7];
[Appirater setUsesUntilPrompt:5];
[Appirater setSignificantEventsUntilPrompt:-1];
[Appirater setTimeBeforeReminding:2];
[Appirater setDebug:NO];
[Appirater appLaunched:YES];

If you wanted to show the request after 5 days only you can set the following:

[Appirater setAppId:@"770699556"];
[Appirater setDaysUntilPrompt:5];
[Appirater setUsesUntilPrompt:0];
[Appirater setSignificantEventsUntilPrompt:-1];
[Appirater setTimeBeforeReminding:2];
[Appirater setDebug:NO];
[Appirater appLaunched:YES];


In iOS 10.3, SKStoreReviewController was introduced which allows rating directly within the app without any additional setup.

Appirater automatically uses SKStoreReviewController if available. You'll need to manually link StoreKit in your App however.

If SKStoreReviewController is used, Appirater is used only to decide when to show the rating dialog to the user. Keep in mind, that SKStoreReviewController automatically limits the number of impressions, so the dialog might be displayed less frequently than your configured conditions might suggest.

While not required, I greatly encourage and appreciate any improvements that you make to this library be contributed back for the benefit of all who use Appirater.

Ports for other SDKs

A few people have ported Appirater to other SDKs. The ports are listed here in hopes that they may assist developers of those SDKs. I don't know how closesly (if at all) they track the Objective-C version of Appirater. If you need support for any of the libraries, please contact the maintainer of the port.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
