Paris, France – Manomaya SAS today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of “iTunes Ratings & Comments,” a free widget for WordPress. This free plug-in allows users to display ratings and comments from the App Store directly on the user’s WordPress blog.
After developing their popular visual guitar teaching app, Coach Guitar 2.0 for iOS, Manomaya SAS developers wanted to display comments and ratings left by customers on iTunes. However, they were disappointed to discover there was no way to quickly and easily pull out comments and ratings about their app to display on their website. As a result, this WordPress plug-in was developed to assist any developer to extend the functionality of their blog in marketing their app.
When activated, ratings and comments left directly on the app’s page in the App Store can be displayed in real-time. Users can also display the star-ratings average left by customers about their app.
To access the plug-in, users can download the zipfile available on the Coach Guitar website. After unzipping the file, users can fill in the app ID and country code. To install, users should upload the whole folder into their directory and activate the extension. The widget can be added to the user’s WordPress blog sidebar or wherever they desire the information to be displayed. To activate the star-rating feature, users need to select the box that will add rich snippets to the page and show stars under Google results.
“WordPress is a great tool to build websites,” says Boris Douarre, CEO of Manomaya SAS. “The functionalities of its plug-ins allow the wordpress core to be extended with tons of new features. As we developed our website for our Coach Guitar app, we discovered that the plug-in we required didn’t exist. So we decided to build it and share it for free with other developers.”
