How to use the Reviews page

The Reviews page is where you can see high-level app statistics for your app’s reviews (and replies – Google Play only) for the period you’ve chosen.

Filtering your reviews

On the right of the page, you’ll see the Filters pane, you can use these filters to refine results on the page. Filter for reviews: 

  • in a particular date range (1.)
  • containing a certain keyword (2.)
  • with a specific star rating (3.)
  • with positive, negative, neutral or mixed sentiment (4.)
  • in a certain language/country (5.)
  • that have a particular Custom Topic or Tag (6.)
  • that have or have not been replied to (Google Play only) (7.)
  • from a particular app version (iOS only).

It’s a good idea to periodically filter the results to one star only and have a read through your more negative app reviews (3.)

Understanding the summary stats

At the top of the page you will see the Review Stats panel which shows you app statistics for the date range you’ve selected:

  • how many reviews you have received in total (1.)
  • what your average star rating is (2.)
  • a breakdown of the number of reviews each star rating received (3.)
  • a breakdown of the number of review replies for each star rating received (4.) and
  • a chart showing the sentiment breakdown of your app reviews (5.) Toggle the Trend and Stars buttons at the top right corner for trend and stars over time charts (6.)
