How to rate or review a podcast on your iPhone or iPad

Just like music, movies, and TV shows, you can rate podcasts — like our very own iMore show — on iTunes and do it right from your iPhone or iPad. You do have to download and use Apple's Podcast app, but once you have it, it's easy to do!

How to leave an iTunes rating or review for a podcast from your iPhone or iPad

  1. Launch Apple's Podcast app.
  2. Tap the Search tab.
  3. Enter the name of the podcast you want to rate or review.
  4. Tap the blue Search key at the bottom right.
  5. Tap the album art for the podcast.
  6. Tap the Reviews tab.
  7. Tap Write a Review at the bottom.
  8. Enter your iTunes password to login.
  9. Tap the Stars to leave a rating.
  10. Enter title text and content to leave a review.
  11. Tap Send.

You can search for, and rate and review, additional podcasts to your heart's content. iTunes factors in ratings and reviews, and their frequency, when figuring out the top charts and which shows to feature. So, if you like a podcast make sure to rate and review. It helps the podcast get attention and that helps it get more great listeners like you!

And if you're feeling especially generous, leave ratings and reviews for your favorite iMore podcasts now!

How to rate or review a podcast on your iPhone or iPad


This is great to know as I have not rated a few of my favorite podcasts since I could not figure out how to do it on my iPod which I listen to all of my podcasts on. Though I am not giving up Downcast and going back to the Podcasts app!
