iRate: iRate is a library to help you promote your iPhone and Mac App Store apps by prompting users to rate the app after using it for a few days.

To have a user rate your app create a Launch Native App screen, and used the following link:

itms-apps:// type=Purple Software&id=123456780

The reviewers have to add the app and activate the app for ads. You can’t just add the iAds when your app is live on the app store, you have to enable it on iTunes connect for iAds, and re-submit it.
