You pissed off people by somewhat breaking your app, and they’re leaving angry reviews. How can you salvage your reputation? Apple just found one incredibly effective way — get listeners to submit better reviews by interrupting their podcast experience with an in-app prompt to submit a rating.
That’s how the Apple Podcasts app went from a publicly embarrassing 1.8-star score all the way to 4.6 stars in a little over a month without any actual fixes […]
I cringed reading this story. People that leave reviews are clearly talking about podcasts they are listening to and not the app itself, which shows confusion on the listeners part. I use Apple Podcasts app and have never seen this prompt, but it is apparently there somewhere.
