    @synthesize urlAlert;
    -(void)viewDidLoad {
        [super viewDidLoad];
        // init with URL and period
        self.urlAlert = [[RMRecurringURLAlert alloc] initWithURLString:@"" period:3];

    Does it open the iTunes app page or to the review page?
    • RM Richard Metzler Publisher 2 years ago
      It's possible to open everything that has an URL. To open the iTunes app page just copy the link from itunes. To open the review page, this link explains how to construct the URL There is one caveat though, these links seem to work only on an actual device, not in the iOS simulator.
