Default [Library] RateMyApp

After attending a talk about how to market our applications in better ways I just published a library I developed to ask users to users a rating on the Play Store.

It is extremely simple. It keeps track of the first time the application has been used and a counter of the number of times the application has been launched.
You can configure when you want to ask the user to rate your application both in term of number of launches and days from the installation.

When the conditions are met, the library creates a dialog with a button to open the Play Store page of the application, a button to postpone the alert and a button to dismiss it and never get asked again.

You can get the library from GitHub.
Feedbacks and recommendation about how I could improve it are very welcome.

Great. Let me know what you think about the library.

I hope you won't have any issue but in case you have problems let me know and we will try to sort them out.

Thank you! I'm traveling without my computer and I cannot push your translation to the repository immediately. If you like you can fork the project on github and create a pull request, otherwise I'll integrate your translation as soon as I get back home

Step 1ownload the libraries.
Step 2:-Then copy the .lib file to the android libraries folder in the project tree for the app you are designing.
Step 3:- Happy coding!

There doesnt seem to be a libs folder. I imported the Javas and followed the directions but don't know how to configure the gradle modules cause I'm using eclipse not studio.

Hello, while this is a good idea to ask for a rating, don't harass the user with it, and don't ask it too soon, leave the user some time to poke around

Regards
