How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

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.

Per the wonderful Mr. Torr: This should be supported now — if you use StoreRequestHelper.SendRequestAsync and pass 6 and an empty string as the parameters, you should get back a response. (Not documented yet…):

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uwp/api/Windows.Services.Store.StoreRequestHelper#Windows_Services_Store_StoreRequestHelper_SendRequestAsync_Windows_Services_Store_StoreContext_System_UInt32_System_String_

Will close this out once docs are out
