how to go to store so user can leave a review RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't find any samples on how to do this. I already have a message box set up. I just can't find out what those one or two lines of code that actually allow this are. Thanks!

  • The Rate and Reviews option will be automatically added to your panel when the app is published from the store.

    You can link to the app's entry in the store as documented at Linking to your app , but there is no supported way to go directly to the review pane. Some people have reverse engineered a URL for that, but it is not documented and is subject to change. I would not recommend baking undocumented assumptions into your app.

  • While I agree with Rob, but if you think you need a shortcut for now then use this:

    Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(new Uri("ms-windows-store:REVIEW?PFN=PACKAGE_FAMILY_NAME"));

    Where PACKAGE_FAMILY_NAME is in Packaging tab of your App Manifest file.

    And as an example try this for Bing Finance App:

    Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(new Uri("ms-windows-store:REVIEW?PFN=Microsoft.BingFinance_8wekyb3d8bbwe"));
