In-App Message Templates

Custom App Store Review Prompt

Creating a campaign to ask users for an App Store review is a popular usage of in-app messages.

Start by setting the In-App Message delegate in your app. Next,implement the following delegate method to disable the default App Store review message:

- (ABKInAppMessageDisplayChoice)beforeInAppMessageDisplayed:(ABKInAppMessage *)inAppMessage {
  if (inAppMessage.extras != nil && inAppMessage.extras[@"Appstore Review"] != nil) {
    [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:inAppMessage.uri options:@{} completionHandler:nil];
    return ABKDiscardInAppMessage;
  } else {
    return ABKDisplayInAppMessageNow;
  }
}

func before(inAppMessageDisplayed inAppMessage: ABKInAppMessage) -> ABKInAppMessageDisplayChoice {
  if inAppMessage.extras?["Appstore Review"] != nil && inAppMessage.uri != nil {
    UIApplication.shared.open(inAppMessage.uri!, options: [:], completionHandler: nil)
    return ABKInAppMessageDisplayChoice.discardInAppMessage
  } else {
    return ABKInAppMessageDisplayChoice.displayInAppMessageNow
  }
}

In your deep link handling code, you can then add the following code to process the {YOUR-APP-SCHEME}:appstore-review deep link. Note that you will need to import StoreKit to use SKStoreReviewController:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)app openURL:(NSURL *)url options:(NSDictionary<UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey, id> *)options {
  NSString *urlString = url.absoluteString.stringByRemovingPercentEncoding;
  if ([urlString isEqualToString:@"{YOUR-APP-SCHEME}:appstore-review"]) {
    [SKStoreReviewController requestReview];
    return YES;
  }
  // Other deep link handling code…
}

func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
  let urlString = url.absoluteString.removingPercentEncoding
  if (urlString == "{YOUR-APP-SCHEME}:appstore-review") {
    SKStoreReviewController.requestReview()
    return true;
  }
  // Other deep link handling code…
}

Next, create an In-App Messaging campaign with the following:

  • add the key-value pair “Appstore Review” : “true”
  • set the “On Click Behavior” to “Deep Link Into App,” using the above deep link (e.g., {YOUR-APP-SCHEME}:appstore-review)
