Apple clarifies how tips should work in iOS apps

Apple clarifies how tips should work in iOS apps

Among the many ways that our apps get on our nerves is when they repeatedly pressure us to leave a review in the App Store, but as of this week, Apple is cutting back on those annoying prompts significantly.

Apple is putting an end to the scourge of review prompts that seemed to pop up inside of some apps every few days. The changes were first spotted by 9to5Mac. Developers do it because getting reviews and ratings on the App Store can be a big key toward developing a reputation for anyone who is looking for quality apps on the App Store. So in iOS 11, Apple is introducing not only a built-in review prompt API, but a rule saying that developers can't have a custom review prompt.

According to CNN , Trump said: "We're getting out". "Think of it: India can double their coal production". In response, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi affirmed his commitment to the climate change.

To summarize, as the App Store makes the shift to strongly controlled curated content it will become more important than ever to get featured but it might become even more hard to get featured which may impact small/medium developers.

As previously reported, the iOS 11 contains a security update, one which gives users an option to enable location tracking only when the apps that need such data are opened.

Apple wants to lock down tips, making sure that developers can't simply bump users out to an external site to avoid paying the revenue share.

Developers will only be allowed to ping users for ratings three times a year, and once the app has been reviewed, it can't show the message again for another year, even after major updates. There are many clauses in the App Review Guidelines that are consistently violated by apps and allowed to slip through the net seemingly forever. This means that developers will now all have to use a standardized prompt when asking users to rate and review their app.
