One of the really important things people look for when looking for an app is good rated apps. There is a simple trick you can do as developer to increase the amount of ratings you get but also improve the rating itself. I implemented this for all my apps. For example my Rubber Duck app has a little over 11.000 downloads but over 1000 ratings as well. That’s a 1:11 ratio which is very high. The trick I use is to ask a user to review my app after the 5th time they startup the app. I make it super easy to review the app and the idea is, why would somebody who doesn’t like your app start it for the 5th time, so WHEN the users startup your app for the 5th time the chances are pretty good they like to use your app anyway, so they probably would rate the app high as well.
