  1. Add the files RMURLAlert.h and RMURLAlert.m to your project

  2. use it in your main viewcontroller

    #import "RMURLAlert.h"
    @implementation RootViewController
    @synthesize urlAlert;
    -(void)viewDidLoad {
        [super viewDidLoad];
        // init with URL and period
        self.urlAlert = [[RMRecurringURLAlert alloc] initWithURLString:@"" period:3];
        // show the altert with message and button text
         showAlertWithMessage:@"Please rate this app!"

  • The component does as advertised, but I have yet to see any results from apps in the App Store which use it (largely because none of them have been approved yet). I expect to see good results.

    Does it open the iTunes app page or to the review page?
    • RM Richard Metzler Developer 11 months 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.
