OpenRepos.net has a rating system where you can give from one to five stars to a package. Storeman also allows you to rate packages but it seems to be a bit complicated for users to find out how to do it.

Please take part in this poll to understand whether there is such an issue and whether Storeman need some UI changes to make rating more clear.

I'll add comment to my vote. No I haven't known that is possible to rate app in Storeman. But after reading question I opened Storeman and it was quite obvious what to do to rate the app.

But finding it when you know that the feature exits (I did the same than you), doesn't mean that it's obvious :)

A more familiar way would be to mimic the Jolla Store: a slightly bigger white thumb up which opens the voting menu when click (and is blue if you've already voted)

same here: didn't know it existed and when I searched for it it took me a while to find out (was trying all the pulley menus first). However once found I loved it - and also used it to five-star Storeman :)

Hi, as web dev, we has 2 rules:

  • dont make user think twice to know its function
  • UI need help text mean bad design

And it true in this case. The solution most user choice is return LIKE buttton as Jolla Store. Thank for your app.

When I started storeman for the first time, I had a little popup telling me to rate an app by tapping on the stars. It seemed pretty straightforward to me.
