How to stop apps from asking you to review and rate them on android?

Are you tired of apps asking you to rate them on your Android or iPhone? Read this article to find out how to turn them off so you don't have to deal with nags.

In most cases, you will be asked to rate and review an app after downloading it on your iPhone or Android device. In most cases, the request is reasonable. Developers receive direct feedback from ratings and reviews, which help other people decide whether or not to download these apps. Apps will always ask you to leave a review, knowing ratings are essential to their success. That's great if you're okay with it. There may be times, though, when you don't feel like writing a review, especially when you're using the app. It is unfortunate that some apps may repeatedly ask for your permission if you don't leave one. It's a good thing there's a way to get rid of this annoying feature. Here's how to do it.

How to stop apps from asking you to review and rate them on an iPhone?

You can prevent app review pop-ups from appearing on your iPhone using this simple method. The following steps will prevent iOS app review pop-ups from appearing:

To turn off In-App Ratings and Reviews, simply go to the Settings application, then select App Store. It's as simple as that. You will no longer receive pop-ups asking you to rate and review any application once the feature has been disabled.

How to stop apps from asking you to review and rate them on an Android?

Whether you use Android or iOS, you've probably encountered apps that ask for a rating or review. There are some that offer a Never option that will suppress future requests, but not all. There are only two options available to you in these cases: Yes or Remind Me Later. Choosing the latter, however, will result in the app bugging you again in the future. There is a simple way to shut down the app and never receive this notification again.

Tap Yes like you're leaving a review. When the App Store/Google Play Store opens, you can tap Back or close it. There is no way for the store to tell the app if a rating was left. Rather than asking you again, the app remembers that you tapped Yes when you first opened the store.

As a result, you won't have to rate an app that you find annoying. Nevertheless, it would be helpful if you could give an honest review of an app that you use regularly. In this way, the developers will be able to identify what's missing in their app and fix it before releasing the next release.

There are some apps that ask for a review once they roll out a new update. Possibly, their developer has set their app to automatically ask for a review after every new version is released. Each version of the application is tested by the developer so that they can get feedback on whether it is working or not.


However, app reviews and ratings aren't necessarily bad. It may be helpful to leave a review for an app to provide feedback to the developer or to assist other users in making informed decisions about whether to download the app. In any case, if you find that they are annoying or intrusive, you can prevent them from appearing on your iOS or Android device by using one of the methods above.

There are two problems here. One is that it is Google Play itself that is asking me for a review of Firefox not Firefox itself (i.e. Google Play opens and asks not Firefox) and like you say, there is no option to say NEVER, just "not now" which guarantees I'll go out of my way for revenge, up to and including switching to another browser (I never EVER buy anything an intrusive ad is pushing. Sorry, but ads are the bane of the Internet age. How about making your money selling actual products instead of pushing ads? No one in their right mind likes watching banal repetitive begging that ultimately takes YEARS off your life for NOTHING in return. If I was president of the planet, advertising would be a capital offense. It's only fair. They take away part of everyone's lives so they should forfeit their own in return. OK, I'm kidding... Prison terms equaling the total amount of time wasted in total lives would suffice.... That should cut down on ad lengths!

Secondly, if you do choose to review Firefox for whatever reason, it tells me my REAL NAME will be used. Um, no. Just NO. There's enough spam and cyber crime in this world without leading a trail of bread crumbs for some peeved developer to hunt me down for panning his stupid app! They aren't begging for negative reviews, after all. They only want positive ones. That's like eBay or Etsy sellers demanding 100% positive reviews or they go nuts. Sorry, but a system built on lies is a worthless system.

If I can't review an app behind a pseudonym, I will never review an app PERIOD. I don't think it's unreasonable to want anonymity in a hostile crime ridden online world as my name doesn't mean jack to anyone anyway!

Google demanding I use my real name means I won't review ANYTHING AT ALL. That garbage started with Google Plus and sadly, they've never learned a dang thing from its utter utter failure.
