Monotouch – Calling the App Store Review Page

clive Development, iOS, Tech Tip, Uncategorized

A quick tip today for Monotouch developers wanting to invoke the App Store’s review page from within their app;

UIApplication.SharedApplication.OpenUrl (new NSUrl ("itms-apps://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUserReviews?type=Purple+Software&id=609326726"));

And that’s it. Change ‘id’ to the id of your application. Leave type=Purple+Software alone; this is *not* a company name; it’s a magic string that has to be set to exactly this value – Project Purple was the iPhone apparently.
