Panhandler is tool I put together to remind your active iOS app users to rate your app. It’s a singleton that uses a global counter that increments towards a pre-defined trigger value each time your user performs a significant event in your app. Once the trigger-value is reached, an alert is presented to your user, asking them to rate your application. The alert has the ability to be presented additional times:
- if the user requests to be reminded at a later date.
- if a new version of the app is installed
Also, I recognized that not all events are equal, so I’ve added a method that allows you to add custom increments to each event.
I’d like to give a quick thanks to Arash Payan, the inventor of Appirater, which inspired me to make my own version. Please note that Panhandler is not a fork, since the codebase is entirely different.
