有关新App Store评论功能的其他详细信息

Jim Dalrymple,在The Loop写作

When you are prompted to leave a review, customers will stay inside the app, where the rating or review can be left for the developerIt’s easier for customers and the developers still get their reviews.

Apple is also limiting the amount of times developers can ask customers for reviewsDevelopers will only be able to bring up the review dialog three times a yearIf a customer has rated the app, they will not be prompted againIf a customer has dismissed the review prompt three times, they will not be asked to review the app for another year.

Customers will also have a master switch that will turn off the notifications for app reviews from all developers, if they wish to do that.

我今天也和Apple谈到了这些功能我得到了几个问题的回答:

  • 开发人员可以在App Store评论中留下的回复将附加到他们回复的用户评论中它本身不是一个主题,因为用户只能留下一个评论,开发人员只能对每个评论留下一个回复,但它们将以可视方式连接然后,用户可以编辑他们的评论,开发人员可以编辑他们的回复自App Store于2008年开业以来,开发人员一直在呼吁这样的事情。

  • 个人应用程序可以每年提示三次进行审核这个计数器呢每次开发者更新他们的应用时都会重置好。

  • 新的API最终将成为iOS应用程序提示进行App Store审核的唯一制裁方式,但Apple没有时间表来确定它们何时开始执行现有的应用程序不必从一开始就改变其行为或采用这些API。

  • One reason developers prompt for reviews even after you’ve already reviewed a previous version of an app is that the average rating for an app gets reset with each update to the app — and a 4 or 5-star average rating can have a big effect on the number of downloads an app gets从开发人员的角度来看,当您使用较小的错误修复更新替换高评级版本的应用程序并且您的平均评级被删除时,它会很糟糕然而,这是一个棘手的问题需要解决 - 有时候应用程序的最新更新确实值得拥有平均评级,无论好坏我问这个政策是否正在改变,而Apple没有什么可以宣布的 - 但是他们确实承认他们知道当前的政策是导致应用程序过于频繁地审查用户的问题。

我一直批评应用程序请求评论(OpenTable,我正在寻找你的方向)三年前,虽然链接到优秀Eff你的评论网站,我写

I’ve long considered a public campaign against this particular practice, wherein I’d encourage 万博manbetx贴吧 readers, whenever they encounter these “Please rate this app” prompts, to go ahead and take the time to do it — but to rate the app with just one star and to leave a review along the lines of, “One star for annoying me with a prompt to review the app.”

很高兴看到Apple对此做了些什么每年限制三个提示,并关闭系统范围的开关所有这样的提示,从用户的角度来解决问题还有很长的路要走如果Apple能够找到一种更公平的方式来计算跨更新的应用程序的平均评级,他们也可以从开发人员的角度帮助解决它。
