Notes on prompting for a review

The Apple App Store controls the actual display of this alert so it may not show for some cases. This is to prevent frequent rating prompts which can be irritating for users. See more details in Apple's Documentation

Google Play enforces a time-bound quota on how often a user can be shown the review dialog. Because of this quota, requesting display of the dialog more than once during a short period of time (for example, less than a month) might not always display a dialog. Because the quota is subject to change, it's important to apply your own logic and target the best possible moment to request a review. For example, you should not have a call-to-action option (such as a button) to trigger the API, as a user might have already hit their quota and the flow won’t be shown, presenting a broken experience to the user. For this use case, redirect the user to the Play Store instead.
