Boosting Reviews of your Windows Phone Application using the MarketplaceReviewTask Launcher

One thing that so many developers forget is that reviews are a crucial element in driving the adoption of your application. Not only do a lot of developers forget to provide a link to submit a review within their application, they also don’t prompt the user to post a review. Here’s a simple suggestion that should help drive reviews:

– Make sure the user can navigate to the Windows Phone Store review page for your application from somewhere within your application

– Prompt the user to complete a review based on some algorithm eg:

         > After X days of using the app

         > After running the app X number of times

         > After successfully completing something within the app

The simplest way to navigate users to the review page is using the MarketplaceReviewTask:

MarketplaceReviewTask marketplaceReviewTask = new MarketplaceReviewTask();
marketplaceReviewTask.Show();
