Hi everyone,

Could you please put me in the right direction in creating a simple Rate Us button that sends users to the play store where the app is located. I tired using various commands from the http section in the Help but am having no luck. Is their something that I am missing? I see that there is a rate us function, but this is only applicable to iOS.

Thanks again for your help!

I found the answer. Looks like the OpenBrowser("paste your google app page URL here") command does the trick quite well.

Rate me code

Add a button to a layout and create an activity, add the following code to your activity. Replace [Id] with your app id.

private boolean MyStartActivity(Intent aIntent) {
try
{
startActivity(aIntent);
return true;
}
catch (ActivityNotFoundException e)
{
return false;
}
}

//On click event for rate this app button
public void btnRateAppOnClick(View v) {
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
//Try Google play
intent.setData(Uri.parse("market://details?id=[Id]"));
if (!MyStartActivity(intent)) {
//Market (Google play) app seems not installed, let's try to open a webbrowser
intent.setData(Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?[Id]"));
if (!MyStartActivity(intent)) {
//Well if this also fails, we have run out of options, inform the user.
Toast.makeText(this, "Could not open Android market, please install the market app.", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
}
}
}
