Invocation framework: review an application

[ Edited ]

Hi,

In the Windows Phone SDK there's a handy class which opens the application's review page

 

MarketplaceReviewTask review = new MarketplaceReviewTask();
review.Show();

 

The above will work without providing any sort of ID identyfying the app. It will launch the current application's review page once the application is live in the marketplace.

 

I've been looking for a way to do the same thing on BB10. I have an about page in my app with a button which I intend to open a review page

 

It seems that BBWorld can be used for such tasks, but I am not sure if it's possible to open a review page like that without an ID of some sorts. Any pointers? Thanks.

Re: Invocation framework: review an application

So far, the best you can do is to open BBWorld at your app's page, but not at the review page. You also do need to supply the product id yourself in the invocation request. Details are here in case you didn't know about this page yet: https://developer.blackberry.com/native/documentation/cascades/device_platform/invocation/blackberry...
