I am trying to link directly to the review link of one of my Apps. I know that it is possible because Appirater did it in the past, but some change in iTunes turned the API down.

Appirater uses this URL

NSString *templateReviewURL = @"itms-apps://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUserReviews?id=APP_ID&onlyLatestVersion=true&pageNumber=0&sortOrdering=1&type=Purple+Software";

where APP_ID is the ID of an application.

running this from inside the APP gives me the message Cannot Connect to iTunes Store.

This Page talks about another kind of link

https://userpub.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZUserPublishing.woa/wa/addUserReview?id=APP_ID&type=Purple+Software

and also

itms-apps://ax.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewContentsUserReviews?type=Purple+Software&id=APP_ID

The first one works, but just from the desktop mac. The second gives me the same error as the first... Cannot Connect to iTunes Store.

iTunes link maker is not helping too, because it has no tools for iPad links...

Do you guys know how to link to an app's review form from inside an app?

In case you don't know, what kind of package should I use to dig this? a package sniffer?

thanks for any help.
