So many asked me question How to add "Rate and Review" mechanism in Windows Phone App, so I am writing this article.

4. Add following code to the LayoutRoot grid in MainPage.xaml:
  1. <rma:FeedbackOverlay Grid.RowSpan="2"  
  2. EnableAnimation="True"  
  3. RatingTitle="RatingTitle"  
  4. RatingMessage1="Rating Message 1"  
  5. RatingMessage2="Rating Message 2"  
  6. RatingYes="Yes"  
  7. RatingNo="No"  
  8. FeedbackTitle="FeedbackTitle"
