I use a lot of different apps, and many of them prompt me to rate them in the Play Store. Some of them don't have a "never" button, so they keep bugging me. Some of them don't realize it even if I've rated them, so they keep asking me to rate them after I've actually rated them. Also, I want to rate apps on my own initiative, I don't like such reminders.

Is there a way to block/disable/hide all such "please rate this app" prompts systemwide?

For example, it could be an Xposed module that looks for dialogues with buttons leading to rating in the Play Store and then blocks/hides those dialogues.

I have Xposed Framework and root access.

  • theoretically possible, but I highly doubt anyone got bothered enough to implement this. btw what apps do you have in mind? I can't remember when I saw this last time really. – Sarge Borsch Aug 28 '16 at 11:43
  • @SargeBorsch Which apps, you mean? – Revetahw Aug 28 '16 at 11:44
  • the apps which show the annoying dialogs – Sarge Borsch Aug 28 '16 at 11:45
  • @SargeBorsch Dozens of my apps do that. – Revetahw Aug 28 '16 at 11:45
  • maybe you could just find less annoying alternatives for them – Sarge Borsch Aug 28 '16 at 11:45

Apparently not possible as you can see from the same question answered on reddit by an Xposed module developer :

There is no global rating dialog class that you could hook into, every app creates a standard dialog and adds their own contents to it, so you would have to decompile, analyze and hook every app separately.

Perhaps a developer here could add more by way of explanation, as to why it is not possible to employ a technique / tool that works across the board in disabling rating popups

  • Thanks for accepting but I was hoping for a more detailed explanation from the developers who frequent the site. – beeshyams Sep 2 '16 at 10:51
  • I had a problem with this persistent pop up and app support replied. It helped so adding it here Quote in the programs folder of Snap ( app name) you will find a file called settings.txt. Please send that file, so we can check it. Probably in this file it states rateAskAgain=true but it needs to be rateAskAgain=false unquote – beeshyams Sep 6 '16 at 14:33
