How to deeplink on the Galaxy Store rating page from the watch app

Hi, I would like to open the rating page on the Galaxy Store from my .NET Tizen watch app. I want to implement the dialog “Please, give us 5 star review” that would be displayed on the watch, and it would lead to the store.

I found that I can use the AppControl class and pass the application ID:

AppControl.SendLaunchRequest(
    new AppControl
    {
        Operation = AppControlOperations.View,
        ApplicationId = "com.samsung.gearstore",
        Uri = Constants.AppID,
        LaunchMode = AppControlLaunchMode.Single
    }, (launchRequest, replyRequest, result) => { });

With this privilege

<privilege>http://tizen.org/privilege/application.launch</privilege>

This works both on Gear S3 with Tizen 4.0, as well as the newer Galaxy Active watch. But it opens only a simplified version of the store - there is no rating button! It’s a different UI than if I open the store app manually and search for the app.

How this can be done? Can I pass a different parameter to open the correct ratings page?

Hello ~,

Good point. I’ve tried out the stuff after checking your post.

You are talking about the ‘Galaxy Store’ App on Galaxy Watch, right?
I’ve reproduced the scenario and it seems the ‘Rate App’ button is missing while launching the app details page on galaxy store via appControl.

Good feedback, there should be a way to redirect the consumers to rate the app right away.

Hi @Armaan-Ul-Islam, yes, I want to open the Galaxy Store app on a Galaxy Watch.

So, is there any way? You should probably update this guide: https://developer.tizen.org/ko/community/tip-tech/linking-your-application?langredirect=1 The org.tizen.tizenstore is not available on the watch anymore, there is just com.samsung.gearstore and the launch parameters seems to be different.

What other options do I have, implementing a web browser on the watch and opening a link? Opening the website on a connected phone?
