App Store Review prompts
Apple allows apps to present a prompt encouraging users to rate and review the app. These both appear prominently in the App Store listing and can play a big part in users discovering and installing your app, which is why we've built this functionality right into Bolt.
This is a system-provided prompt, meaning we don't have any control over its appearance or functionality. We'll show the prompt when the following criteria have been met:
- The app has been installed for at least 3 days
- The user has spent more than 10 minutes reading content in your app
Once those criteria have been met, the prompt will pop up once the user next navigates to a screen, or reopens the app.
We don't offer a way to explicitly invoke the prompt, such as from a button in the settings, for a couple of reasons:
- Engagement with such a button is likely to be lower than proactively surfacing the prompt
- iOS imposes a strict limit on the number of times a user can be shown the prompt, which is 3 times over a rolling 365 day period. Buttons or other mechanisms trying to invoke the prompt after that would simply do nothing.

Android doesn't currently offer an equivalent in-app UI for reviewing or rating your apps. However, an in-app message sent by a supported provider could be used to direct users to the store listing page where they would be able to review the app.
