Picture this: You're enjoying a round of Alto's Odyssey when suddenly a pop-up appears. Not only do you lose your momentum, but you're also particularly frazzled when you see that intrusive block wondering if you're enjoying the app enough to want to review it. You knock off one or two stars not because you don't like the game, but because you just want to vent out your frustrations. 

Apparently, you can actually switch off this unwanted intermission in your Apple phone. Upgrading to iOS 11 allows you to switch off the default in-app rate and review setting in just a few simple steps.

Go to Settings, choose Account, then look for iTunes & App Stores. You'll find the setting right there, then just switch it off.
