Detect whether user has rated the app or not
As a developer, the only way to increase app ratings and review is to prompt user.
At present there are no APIs to detect whether a user has rated the app or not. Some users get annoyed and down rate the app due to this very reason.
This is a very basic piece of functionality that has been missing for long.
Please provide us a simple API that gives us this information.
Alternative for us to continue work towards this http://invokeit.wordpress.com/2013/10/16/detect-whether-user-has-reviewed-your-app-or-not-wpdev/ however I am not keen on this purely because I can see this being abused very easily.

Hey dev, you know that any time an app begs for ratings, a lot of us make sure to rate it one star, right?

It would be really nice to have it...

Great idea - got my support!

why not.. though one at a time.. I rather focus on getting WPDev to agree first :)
