Using Open URL to rate an application

Hi there!

Someone has already suggested to implement a "Rate My Application" system using an alert that prompts the user to rate an application. It is very important to get reviews so you can be noticed both by Apple (and get featured) and by other people out there.

Searching on the web I think I found an easier method that requires only an Open URL behavior that has to open this link:

itms-apps://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUse‚ÄãrReviews?id=***********&onlyLatestVersion=true&pageNumber=0&sortOrdering=1&‚Äãamp;type=Purple+Software

Where *********** stands for your App ID.

So the only thing you have to do is open this link that automatically sends the user to the Rate My App page on the App Store. You can attach this behavior to something the user wants to click such as a button that gives the user a gamecenter achievement.

Is it possible to open a link like this using the Open URL behavior in Stencyl?

Thank you!

Did you try it? It might just work with the "open url" block.

No, I haven't tried it yet since I don't have an app on the app storie....
If someone has an app on the app store (that should be connected to an app ID), then he can try this method or share his App ID so someone else has the possibility to test.

I think it will work, i saw someone in 2.0 that tried it, and it worked, so i think it also will work in 3.0 :p
