How to ask users to review your app.


In this post we will discuss how to easily ask your users to rate your app.

1. Signup/sign in with App Upgrade:

First, let’s signup with App Upgrade. Head over to or Signup if not already else sign in.

2. Create Project

Project is a high-level term used in App Upgrade. Project is an umbrella that you will be using to manage the versions of your app. Assuming you have done signing up and you are logged in to the app upgrade. You will be welcomed with the following screen.

App Upgrade: Project Empty Screen

Click on the +New Project button to create a new project. Provide a proper Name and Description for your project. App Upgrade: Create Project Form

Click on Submit button and the project will be created.

3. Obtain the API Key:

Click on the API Key button inside the project card, and you will see the API key for your project. App Upgrade: API key

Copy the API key we will need it later.

4. Integrate SDK with React Native App:

Alright, now it's time for some coding. Let's start with installing the App Upgrade React Native Rate SDK. Run the following command to install the SDK.

npm i app-upgrade-react-native-rate-sdk --save

Import the package and use the SDK.

import {rate} from 'app-upgrade-react-native-rate-sdk';
const App: () => Node = () => {
  const xApiKey = 'ZWY0ZDhjYjgtYThmMC00NTg5LWI0NmUtMjM5OWZkNjkzMzQ5'; // Your project key

  const appInfo = {
    appId: '', // for
    appName: 'Wallpaper app',
    platform: 'Android',
    environment: 'Production',

  const promptConfig = {
    title: 'Rate us',
    positiveButtonTitle: 'Sure',
    negativeButtonTitle: 'No Thanks',

  rate(appInfo, xApiKey, promptConfig);

  return (

Let's look into the app info parameters:

Parameters details

  • appId: [Required] App Id of your app. Know how to find appId for your app.
  • appName: [Required] Your app name.
  • platform: [Required] This could be android or ios
  • environment: [Required] This could be for example development, int, production

Optional Fields

  • title //Title text to show on the prompt. Default is "Rate us"
  • positiveButtonTitle // Positive button title. Default is "Sure"
  • negativeButtonTitle // Negative button title. Default is "No Thanks!"
  • message // Message to show in prompt. Default is "Would you like to share your review with us? This will help and motivate us a lot."

You can override the defaults by providing the values from your app or from dashboard. The priority is Dashboard > App > Default.

5. Testing Integration

Now once we are done with the integration it's time to test whether integration works or not that is if the popup is showing up or not. For testing this out we will need to create a App Review config.

6. Create App Review Config

Go to Projects and click on the App Review button, and click on the +Create button. App Upgrade: Create App Review

Provide the following details:

  • App Name: Name of the App
  • Platform: App platform example: android or iOS
  • Environment: The environment in which the app is running example: development, staging, or production

You can also provide values from prompt title, positive button title and negative button title.

After providing the value click on Submit button and app review config will be created. App Upgrade: App Review

Reload your react native app. SDK will check if it should show prompt or not and show an popup.
