Apple is going to stop app developers from harassing you

Apple is going to stop app developers from harassing you

The developer, whose post was first noticed by Motherboard, received a rejection letter from Apple saying "your app contains images and references to Pepe the Frog, which are considered objectionable content".

Until recently, Apple would delete the previous reviews from an app store listing after it has been updated.

The new app review guidelines stipulate that developers may no longer create their own pop-ups to ask for a rating.

Use the provided API to prompt users to review your app; this functionality allows customers to provide an App Store rating and review without the inconvenience of leaving your app, and we will disallow custom review prompts.

Developers aren't entirely miffed about the change (first highlighted by 9to5mac), because the API allows for submitting app reviews without having to leave the app.

But Apple is also limiting the number of times that the rating prompt can be pushed to users. The rating prompt is mandatory now which will help users to get rid of the annoying prompts. Once the user rates the app he will never see that again.

However, there's an obvious failing with this system.

The tipping option is not the only changes in the new App Store policies.

The second important point is that the app review prompt will be shown up only 3 times every year irrespective of how often the app has been updated. Furthermore, the user can completely disable the prompts by tapping the iOS Settings app and disabling them.
