Talk:How to integrate store review into an app on Windows Phone

From Nokia Developer Wiki

Influencer - Don't understand...

Hi Pavan, thanks for the article. I don't understand the note in the section 'Integration': 'You can open Marketplace Review client application, Sign-in with Windows Live ID and your application must in Windows Store' Can you explain what you mean/clarify the sentence, please? Cheers,

Mfabiop - I guess

I guess he is saying that you can open the Marketplace review application using this code. But the application must be in the Windows Store to write a review and you must sign-in using the Windows Live ID.

Pavan.pareta - You are correct...

I agreed with Mfabiop. @Mfabiop your guess is correct..

Mfabiop - Small changes

Hi Pavan,

After your response i did small changes in the article. See if you agree with them.

Pavan.pareta - Agreed!!

Hi Mfabiop,

I am Ok with that... Feel free to improve it... I don't have any issue :)

Croozeus - Thanks

Hi Pavan,

Thanks for the article.

I gave it a sub-edit. It's bit unclear whether the 'review functionality' is available with this - the name of the article being 'rate a WP app'. How about renaming the article to something more apt?

I think this could be a part of a larger topic on how to collect feedback from users for WP applications.

Hamishwillee - Subedited/Reviewed

Hi All

I subedited further for wiki style and readability. It is still not clear what you mean by "However YOU must sign-in using your Windows Live ID " - do you mean that the user of your app must sign in, or is there some process for the author of the app (which is what this says now).

Title is OK, but might be better as "How to add marketplace review to your Windows Phone app"

Screenshot of the marketplace app opened would be great in the introduction.

Nice clean topic. Thanks.

Hamishwillee - Platform services - not completely sure

PS Added App Marketing catego4ry, which this is related to. I'm not completely sure about Platform services - though it is a good name for stuff like launchers and choosers which are supplied by other apps. Need to think more on that.

Hamishwillee - This might benefit from addition of guidance on best way to approach users with rating question

Hamishwillee - Updated

Hi Pavan

I added a section explaining where to add the rating - ie in the About, and also if the app appears to be running well. What would be great is if you could show some of these integrations - ie in a prompt, with a status message, and my favourite, with a toast notification? Would this be possible?

Is there any way to detect if the app has already been rated - it would not be a good idea to prompt the user again?

I did think there wasn't much point in this article given that most of the material is in the DevCenter, but with the addition of "when you should do this" I think it adds real value.

One technical point, you note that the person needs to be logged in with windows ID and also the app needs to be on the marketplace. Now my understanding is that you can't have the app unless it a) exists and b) you're logged in with an id so you could download it. Correct? This means that the comments are Emulator-specific, and this should be updated to reflect that. Thoughts?
