Reviews is an extremely useful feature. It allows you to reply to reviews that your app receives in Google Play and the Apple App Store. The responses that you submit in this feature are automatically sent to Google Play Console and App Store Connect. So after you submit, there's no other action needed. But, keep in mind, it can take up to 24 hours for your responses to be published.

How Does Reviews Feature Work?

In Reviews, you can manage, analyze, and respond to your reviews.

On the top bar, you can see when was the last time that App Radar imported your reviews, and you can also export your review as a CSV file.

Within the Reviews feature, you can also have a summary of your ratings during the selected date range.

Sorting Through Your App Reviews

There are several filters you can use to sort through your reviews. These are:

  • Date Range

  • Country

  • Answered, unanswered, and edited reviews

  • App version

  • Star rating

  • You can also sort your reviews by feedback or date

Replying to Your App's Reviews

Once you've found an app review you'd like to reply to, simply click on "reply".

You can reply by:

  • typing a response in the text box

  • using a ready-made reply template

  • creating your own reply template

If you realize you made a mistake in your reply or would like to edit your reply, you can do so after you've submitted it. Just go back to the review and click "edit reply".

You can also save your reply as a template for later use by clicking "Save reply as template".

After you save a reply as a template, you can manage it in the Templates feature.

If the review isn't in your language, you can easily translate it to English.

Sharing your Reviews

You can also share any review by email.
