After you download an app from the App Store on your iPhone or iPad, it's not uncommon to receive a pop-up notification asking you to rate and review what you think of it. Your rating is helpful to both the developer and other users who may be interested in the app, but sometimes these pop-ups can feel a bit excessive.
