and show a dialog to engage users to rate the app in Google Play.

Getting Started

}

x.y.z is Download

NOTICE: From 1.0.0, group ID has been changed from com.kobakei to io.github.kobakei.

Basic usage

Call RateThisApp.onCreate(Context) and RateThisApp.showRateDialogIfNeeded(Context) in your launcher activity's onCreate() method.

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    // Monitor launch times and interval from installation
    RateThisApp.onCreate(this);
    // If the condition is satisfied, "Rate this app" dialog will be shown

}

That's all! You can see "Rate this app" dialog at an appropriate timing.

Advanced usages

In default, the dialog will be shown when any of the following conditions is satisfied.

  • App is launched more than 10 times
  • App is launched more than 7 days later than installation.

If you want to use your own condition, please call RateThisApp.init(Configuration) in your Application or launcher activity onCreate method.

// Custom condition: 3 days and 5 launches
RateThisApp.Config config = new RateThisApp.Config(3, 5);
RateThisApp.init(config);

You can override title, message and button labels.

RateThisApp.Config config = new RateThisApp.Config();
config.setTitle(R.string.my_own_title);
config.setMessage(R.string.my_own_message);
config.setYesButtonText(R.string.my_own_rate);
config.setNoButtonText(R.string.my_own_thanks);
