Rate Our Podcast “5-stars” On iTunes
If you’re on an iPhone or iPad…
Launch the “Podcasts” app on your device. It’s the app with this icon:
NOTE: If you can’t find this app, swipe all the way left on your home screen until you’re at that weird Search/News page thing. Tap the search field at the top and type in “Podcasts.” Apple’s Podcasts app should show up in the search results below.
Tap the Podcasts app icon, and after it opens, tap the Search field at the top, or the little magnifying glass icon in the lower right corner:
Type the name of the show you want to rate (e.g. The Author’s Corner) into the search field, and press the Search button.
In the search results, click on our show!
Scroll down the page until you see Ratings & Reviews
Tap the purple “Write a Review” link:
NOTE: You may need to log into iTunes at this point. If so, enter your iTunes password (annoying, right?).
On the next screen, tap on the 5th star to the right. This is how you give the show a 5-star rating:
Next, press the Send button in the upper right corner of the screen. That’s it! THANK YOU!
If you’re on a Windows or Mac computer…
The computer needs to have the iTunes program downloaded and installed. It’s free, and you can download it for either Mac or Windows at this link:
Once you have that taken care of, proceed with the steps below:
Launch the iTunes program on your computer. The iTunes icon looks like this:
In the search field in the upper right corner of iTunes, type the name of the show you want to rate (e.g. The Author’s Corner), and press Enter.
NOTE: You should make sure the Store tab is selected, and that you are searching for “Podcasts”
After searching, locate the show’s image under the word Podcasts and click on it.
On the next page, to the right of the show’s image, there are three tabs: Details, Ratings and Reviews, and Related. Click on Ratings and Reviews.
Click on the 5th star to the right. This is a 5-star rating. You did it!
You can then click the “Write a Review” button below the stars and write something nice about the show.
